Building a trailer for Ice Fishing

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone has any ideas where of look for ideas about building a trailer for pulling a portable and gear behind a atv.

I'm not sure how much it would cost to build one from scratch after acquiring the materials...especially with the price of steel, but you can buy a decent trailer from any home improvement store for around $500. It could haul the ATV to the lake and then you could load it with your fishing gear. This is definitely the right year for pulling a trailer around with the amount of snow out there. Other years I'm not so sure how well it'd work, but it's been a while since we've had a lot of snow on the lakes too.

Trailer? I know the Menards in town here has some single place trailers that run about $500, give or take. Other stores like Fleet Farm, Runnings, etc also have similar trailers that you can hook up and go.

ATV? Sky is the limit I suppose. I haven't seen many used ones in the paper for sale. With this mild winter I think they are getting more use than normal and aren't parting with them as easily. New ones go for 4,5,6,7 thousand dollars. Check the ATV forum here for more info about every flavor you're looking at.

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....

      Fished a bigger lake, fish or at least the eaters are on the mid lake humps. Water Temps 68 degrees, freezer now has 6 total as I've been eating fish often. Tomorrow we chase the 30" walleye for catch and release.  
      Stuntz Bay Boathouse Historic District - Wikipedia   They have some info.
