Ice Shack Sleds-Otter or ?


Gissert

Question

  • 0

I just bought an ATV and plan on pulling an ice shack behind it. I have noticed from other postings that the Otter sled is very durable. What other brands have very durable sleds that would work good pulling behind an ATV?

I would suggest taking a look at the polar-sport brand of ice houses. I have had mine for a couple of years and the sled is very heavy-duty. My buddy has an Otter and the sleds appear to be about the same..the shape is a little different....but thats about it.

I have an Otter Magnum Lodge with the rigid tow hitch and the hyfax runners. I pop out of the garage on my Honda Foreman ATV, down to the lake and I'm off. I did a lot of research, and fishing before I made the purchases and I am very happy with my set up. Very comfy and functional to fish out of with two guys and all of our gear, and like a living room when I'm by myself. Get an Otter and you won't be sorry and I would definetly get the hyfax runners to protect your investment for years to come. You won't be sorry.

I'll agree with Bushwacker. You won't ever regret buying an Otter. They may cost a little more initially, but you won't have to worry about its reliability. The comfort and features these houses provide are second to none.

I have the original Magnum Otter sled with a hitch (5-6 years old?) It must have hundreds of miles of pulling gear to and from my fishhouse or just out fishing. I used to even strap my 5x6, 6x8 portables on top of it in the old days. Loved it on LOW with that set up.

The bottom of the sled is amazingly like the day I bought it. I couldn't fit the new Otter fishhouse kit on this old sled, so I bought a whole new sled and house. Now the old sled is the wood hauler all winter. smile.gif

There is now better sled out there IMO.

I have the Otter Magnum with the Hyfax runners and that sled is amazing. You can pull it anywhere. It will last you for years and when it does wear down a bit, change the Hyfax runners and you're good for a few more years.

dobie, If your looking for a sled to pull definitely get the Otter. Polar makes a tuff sled too but I don't like the dropped profile.

Any house will pull good behind a ATV, but out of the brands I've fished out of (Otter, Fabill, Clam), the Otter is the #1 house on the market. I've heard some good things about Polar though, but havent fished out of one yet.

      We fished Thursday - Saturday. Couldn’t get any marks to bite on the west end so started east. Caught lots of 9-15” eyes on the mud side of the transition. Mostly crawlers for us on Thurs-Fri but bite changed to minnows on Saturday. Our rainbows ran small but had a few big chubs mixed in. Big chubs we’re best. No eyes on small suckers.  A jig and sucker or crawler on 9-14’ rocks got smallies going in several places. Rocky points coming off islands also produced smallies with tubes, deep jerkbaits and ned rigs on east end. Also landed a 45” ski on a crawler harness.

      Hello. Another important factor to consider when looking for an writing service is the amount of work they can do. A company like https://payforwriting.com/pay-for-papers/  offers a wide variety of topics and has over sixteen writers who are experts in the subject matter. The service also offers proofreading and editing services. Prices start at , but they can get expensive quickly if deadlines are tight.

      Hello. The first step is to read reviews written by customers. This way, you can determine if a service delivers on time and does not charge hidden fees. The paperwriter reviews should also state whether or not the company guarantees original work. Some of the most reliable review platforms include Trustpilot and SiteJabber. Moreover, many  writing services publish their customer reviews on their websites, some even in video format.

      Hello. Remember, cheap writing services will not pass a plagiarism scan and lack quality.  When looking for an college papers writers , you can look for online reviews that compare several companies. Those reviews should include both positive and negative feedback from customers. The service you choose should also provide timely delivery and no hidden fees. Additionally, it should guarantee that every paper is original. This way, you can be sure that you are getting a high-quality written by a competent writer.

      I also don’t really believe that you can earn online casinos. There you can play, put bets, win and more often lose money. In the casino for Norway, the same rules apply as for the rest of the casino. If you are lucky, you will win. But to earn money, it is unlikely.
