I picked up the Eskimo QF II with the bench seats. The unit is currently set up downstairs in front to the bigscreen. I like the unit thus far but has not been field tested. I picked it up at Fleet for 235.00. My only concern will be weight with the bench seat I beleive it is pushing 70 lbs. Which will be no problem on the ice or lite snow cover. However with a foot of snow could lead to mobility issue's.

I have a Fish Trap II (forerunner of the Guide), so I can't speak to either of the aforementioned model's seats.

But none of the 2-person tub portables tow easily on foot with even 8 inches of snow. If you're pulling it with a sled, that's easy, though you better have a travel cover to keep the snow out. If you're pulling any of them on foot, mount skis or hyfax runners on the bottom, or you'll be sorry. grin.gif

Steve its not the tub thats the problem is walking threw the deep snow. My Otter Med pulls ok in snow because it is deep and has a good rounded front to it. A lot of shelters are shallow and blunter at the ends thus harder to pull. Your fishtrap is this way. grin.gif The newer ones aint so bad. Otter and Polar sport sleds pull the easiest for the above reasons. You are correct that you can pull anything with a wheeler or sled. Just have a good tow hitch.

As far as towing is concered by hand unless your into the whole cardio-vascular thing instead of the carbohydrate thing none of them are fun. In terms of fishing and comfort I like mine I did add two more holes in the back rest suports to make it more vertical hope you enjoy your choice.

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      Mini drones like Feichao Mini Drone Quadcopter M9 are good to take footage.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.
