  1. I was up fishing at morson over the weekend. Walleye fishing was good but struggled catching crappies.
  2. 6x6 is way better for climbing. You would be surprised at what you can climb with a 6x6.
  3. I built this little trail groomer for 56 dollars. I only used it when we had really deep snow. Before I pull my house out I always go empty no fishouse to check breakers or slush. Now I have the option of pulling my groomer first and making a trail. I looked at a older alumalite that had taller skis I didn't like fishing that far off the ice. So far this has worked for me.
  4. I have a 6x12 aluma lite with the v front I have the older style skis. I have the center ski which seems to help. This winter was the first time I had any issues moving it. Before the melt we had 2 feet plus of powder snow that's the only time I had issues moving it. I move mine with a Polaris widetrack. My question is are you having issues moving it no matter the snow conditions? I had the same thought building different skis when we had really deep powder this winter. What I did was build a little trail groomer .
  5. Your fishouse looks awesome. I would like to see some inside picture's . This winter was the first time I had issues moving my fishouse. Before the melt we had 2 feet of powder snow. I ended up building a little trail groomer to pull behind my widetrak. It worked great. Made moving my house easy and smoothed the bumps out some.
  6. I normally pull my 6x12 alumalite with a polaris 600 widetrak. From what I have seen I use low range a lot. Right now i have been pulling it with a 2008 polaris 500 widetrack. I usually get a new widetrak every year.
  7. If your headed to whitefishbay it has to be artificial bait and pinched barbs. I have had the best luck using white tube jigs red tips on them.
  8. I have Been fishing out of morson the last couple days. Walleye fishing has been good. Definitely some rough ice in spots makes for slow going. I had lots of equipment problems. I didn't get to try as many spots as I wanted to. Looked for some crappies no luck.
  9. I have jiffy propane auger going on my third year with it. So far no issues runs great. The only things I can say bad about it are. when you haul it you have to lay it a certain it and I have a 10 inch so it's a little heavy.
  10. On Monday I found 8 inches on average only went as far as fish narrows. Not a lot of snow I didn't get a chance to fish. We got more snow in Roseau on Wednesday so there maybe more snow on the lake. Plan on heading up to morson again Friday will give another report . Next week plan on being at morson all week fishing.
  11. My skis have plastic on the bottom I would say that's a must . I wish my skis were boxed they would hold up better . I haven't found any stability issues so far with the center ski. The center ski definitely helps the front from plowing.
  12. If your worried about plowing add a short center ski to the front. I have a 6x12 v front alumalite with the center ski . What snow I have been able to find over the last to winters. It seems to float fairly well . The center ski only extends about 2 feet under the front of the house. I have had zero issues with the center ski freezing.
  13. I replaced my transducer on my fl 18 with a proview last winter very pleased with it. I thought my vexilar was going bad it was not picking up my hook anymore. Replaced my transducer with a new proview worked great last spring crappie fishing. Replacing the transducer on my fl 12 with a proview this week.
  14. I have a champion generator that's a year old at my Ontario cabin. I have had zero issues with it. Runs great it just hit 906 hours on it. The only down side is its a little loud. We run the generator for up to a week at a time with out shutting it down. I had a chance to try a new Yamaha 2000 watt version 2 this summer very quite and very easy on fuel.
  15. Thanks , that's what I thought. I should just up grade to a 90 I see there the same weight.
