I'm looking to buy a Ski Doo Skandic snowmachine.

Would prefer the 600 e-tec engine, but will consider any.

2010 or newer.

PM with particulars.

If it would help, I have a 2003 Ski Doo Tundra with the single cylinder engine, for trade, excellent condition.

Thanks

Jim

Still looking to buy a used Skandic.

Open to any engine options, would still want a newer sled.

Must be somebody out there looking to upgrade.

I will pay in $100 bills.

Lower miles a plus, not interested in any beat up high mileage sleds.

Would prefer to buy from a private party, I'm guessing I'll pay more that a dealer will give you in trade.

Wouldn't hurt to check with me first.

 

Still have my best Tundra for a partial trade if you want to have a decent dependable sled to putt around on.

Buzzed all over the place on her yesterday, runs good, but reinforces the fact that I could sure use electric start, and reverse. 

I'm gettin old. lol

 

Thanks

Jim

Jim,

A good used Skandic or Tundra are next to impossible to find. Their on and off the sales sites in short order.

You may want to expand looking for other brands also like the Arctic cat Bearcat or Polaris LXT or IQ Widetrack.

Pretty much all the work horse sleds are snapped up at high prices as fast as their posted. 

Have some money ready, check daily and have your finger on the buy button. 😉 Good Luck.

Still no luck, so far the closest I've been is the 2nd caller, 33 minutes after the sled was posted. lol

I have called on every used Skandic that has come up for sale within 500 miles of Cook. 

There was one out in Seattle yesterday, lasted 7 hours on craigslist. I thought about it, then reality set in, and I figured it's just a touch too far to go for a snowmachine. lol

I'll keep after it, but at this point looks like I'll be rolling on the Tundra again this winter.

Just can't get myself to drop $13,850 on a new snowmobile.

Have you posted any Want to Buy ads on the other sites you’ve been shopping?  Might just tip someone’s hand that doesn’t want to post one for sale.

 

Good luck!

NO

 

Can't put WTB ads on facebook or craigslist, atleast that's the response I've gotten from both of those outfits when I've tried.

Here's a weird one, I tried putting a for sale ad for a couple of northern pike spears on facebook the other day, they rejected me because it goes against their policies against weapons, what's up with that.

 

I look through craigslist, facebook, and the surplus auction site classifieds a dozen times a day. lol

All I can do is keep doin what I am doin, and hope for a break.

 

I'll take all the help I can get in locating a Skandic, so if anybody see's one or hears of one for sale, I'd sure be interested.

 

I'm wondering if there are even less chances at a sled this year than in years past, because of covid 19.

I know that a bunch of places went up this year, so I'm guessin that the northern Minnesota population has increased a bunch.

The guy that hauls gravel for us, told me he was busier than he wanted to be putting driveways in this year.

Takes alot of fill to push a driveway through a swamp. LOL

The dog was bored the other day so we went for a ride, I even see people living in campers, WTH are they goin to do when it actually get's cold. lol

If you think about it. With all the hunters, trappers, guides and people just living off the land up in Canada and Alaska. You have to wonder how many Ski-Doo Skandic's even make it down to the lower 48? I would even bet being so close to the boarder a lot more Arctic cat Bearcat's and Polaris Wide tracks head that way north then down here. Not trying to discourage you but it's kind of the hot time of year for sleds. You may do better picking up a used one at the end of the season this spring or very early next fall.  Good Luck. 😉

I've had enough drama/frustration over buying a used Skandic. lol

Called all over Minnesota yesterday looking for a new one.

One of the dealers I called last week, had 8-9 of them, today none.

I happened to find one new Skandic SWT, and bought it.

Delivery sometime in December.

If anybody else is on the fence about a Skandic, you better buy it, there aren't anymore. LOL

      Has anyone been out to check ice on any lakes in area. Heard there was 2-3 inches on strand.

      Yup, I started it. Seeing people post about water temps in the low 40s, and knowing that there will be a lot of cold temps this week....we may see the small bays freeze. I have a vested interest as I'd like to make it up next weekend, but have strong doubts that our small bay will be ice-free. Let's hear those reports as the lake begins to change.

      I have found a Strikemaster Magnum 3 Plus 49cc 3HP with box and never used. It also has the matching Mora(Sweden) Auger with guard and spare bonus blades. Paint looks new. I am curious if this is a valuable item or if I should just add some gas and start using. Thank you

      In years past, Jack and other owners of the Landing used to keep the boat launch plowed next door. The last owners of the Landing didn't do it. I've asked several times while frequenting the Landing this summer/fall, and it sounds like they do not plan to keep the lot open either. Are there any other public launches on the lake that are regularly or semi-regularly plowed for people to park sled trailers?

      It's truly amazing how social media has transformed our lives.   Seems like not too long ago there was no such thing as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or TikTok.    Where did you go for fishing information, research, brotherhood and fellowship?   You spent a lot of time at bait shops, reading magazines and newspapers, or you dialed up into a fishing discussion bulletin board on the world wide web.   I'm a geek who preferred the electronic version so I spent A LOT of time online reading everything I could on web forums and discussion boards.  I came to find a primary home here with Fishing Minnesota in roughly 2000.   I dove in and met a lot of great fishing and personal friends.  I was provided the opportunity to get involved with the marketing side of fishing and learned quite a bit about the business of fishing.  
      I've been saddened to see how participation in forums such as this and others I follow, have crashed with the growing popularity of other platforms.
       
      What brings me here though today is to stop by and say hi to all my old fishing friends.  About 4 years ago I started a Catfish/Sturgeon guide service.  It has been growing steadily each year and one of the reoccurring themes I seem to experience is how many of my guests refer to Fishing Minnesota Dot Com and how they came to recognize me and my activity there from years ago.   
       
      For several years this site reigned supreme when it came to current fishing news and information and a place where everyone was here to help and became a brotherhood for many.  While there was always some political stuff tossed in, for the most part it was a place to forget about the world and focus on our favorite past time.    Oh how times have changed.....   
       
      I hope everyone is doing well and pushing through all the background noise in todays world.  What we are currently experiencing does not bode well for our mental health and I hope things change soon before we find ourselves in another 1863 Gettysburg.
       
      I'll share a great experience I had the other night with a Mother/Daughter captured by Ben Garving (Award winning KARE11 photojournalist).   He really did a great job in capturing what happens when you forget about outside things for a while and spend time with family and just sit back and enjoy our great outdoors.   No matter your political views or your thoughts on our natural resources and how they are managed, this is something we can all come together and embrace. 
       
      Take care!

      Cools down Sunday afternoon and the wind dies down at the same time so Head-OLakes Bay should freeze over Sunday night, 11/30.  A couple of cool days after that so next weekend may be possible for fishing (on foot).  I may wait until the following Monday 12/6 to go up.
    • smurfy
      Yea noticed that to. Since heading north to Itasca county since 1965, we notice the same with the weather and snow. Seems  brainerd is a line, then north of deer river.

      The transition seems to be around Brainerd the past few years that I’ve noticed.  Anything south seems to take a while to lock up good then goes bad earlier. Probably has been that way a long time but I’ve only been in the area about 5 winters now and normally didn’t come this direction to ice fish before then.
    • SkunkedAgain
      I would bet that the ice in front of your place is at least 6 inches thick. I think that this will be a good ice year in our bay, but will have to wait it out to see what the future holds for the rest of the lake!   I expect that you'll drill a hole or two to get some fishing in this weekend....
    • smurfy
      Drove by pleasant lake today coming home from st cloud.  99% of that lake is wide open yet 
    • CigarGuy
      Got up today. You're correct skunked. It frozen solid as far as I can see in front of me. Snowmobile tracks are running along our shoreline 🤔
    • SkunkedAgain
      Thanks for the input. I wish that were closer to the west end, as that's a bit of a hike for me but will always be an option.
    • SkunkedAgain
      From the White Eagle webcam, it looks like only the wings are iced up but the majority of Head O Lakes is open water still.   Therefore I likely won't be heading up there until the holidays.
