    Um well when I buy minnows from the bait shop I put them in a little cooler I have but thanks for the tip.
  3. Any companies making a 10in hand auger?

    Let us know what you end up doing, I'm sure there's a few people that will be trying to fugure out what to do come this winter.
  4. Any companies making a 10in hand auger?

    I just mentioned the 8 in one's for example because it was mentioned that a ion with a 10" bit wouldn't last long, and someone mentioned a propane option. I shoulda explained better but more or less I was saying if you have a Older 2 stroke 10 in or newer for that matter you can let that augur do the brunt of your drilling, searching, and hoping with out having to worry about drill batteries until you set up shop and then it would be alot easier for a ion or propane to reopen holes. But that just means you have to have 2 augurs which alot of people don't want and if you already have a good drill and battery then you almost already have what ya needed.
  5. Any companies making a 10in hand auger?

    I've got a jiffy pro 4 lite 8in and it has never seemed under powered to me, my father has a 8in ion with the original battery and hasn't let him down on power, going to a 10 in is gunna cut down on power and battery either way. I'd find a nice used older 2 stoke with a 10 in and get either electric or propane 10 in for re opening if I was In your shoes.

    Think an ion with their bigger battery might be the way to go instead for you

    It would be nice if otter had some integrated lighting like clam offers, maby in the next few years they will.

    That's a really cool set up, not sure I will be doing that much but was thinking about running 2 led strips across the top rails wired down into the sled to a 12 volt vexlair battery. But seeing your set up makes me wanna maby run something inside the tub to.

    What do you guys like to do for lighting in your otters? In my clam 5600 I would always just use one or 2 of the clam rechargeable stick lights.

    Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!

    Still on the fence between going with the cabin or lodge, my dad has a normal lodge and it has tons of room which is great but it also is somewhat heavy for 1 guy to load and pull it seems. I mostly fish with just 1 other person and maby 25% of the time by myself so that was why I was leaning to the cabin which also seemed to have plenty of room for 2 it seemed to me. Also from what I understand the cabin will fit in chevy crew cab box and the lodge won't? I have a 04 crew cab short box so one more incentive for the cabin if thats true.

    Sounds perfect, thinking your guys reviews will seal the deal for me once I can see one in person again, a hyfax kit will also be on my list as I plan on pulling it behind my sportsman 570. Thanks for the review also AAmerican, it's early to be thinking ice fishing but I'm sure there's people out there like us that are a little anxious!
  13. Otter fishhouse

    Thanks for the reply, sounds about like what I expected and I really like the square tubing on the otters compared to clams round cheaper setup. Anyone seen any changes to the new otter lineup for this year?
  14. Otter fishhouse

    I was looking to get an otter XT pro cabin this winter, I was wondering of anyone on here has an otter in the pro platform and how they like the extra insulated walls. Does it seem bulky? Too warm on above 0 days? I wouldn't mind just the normal cabin but they only offer it with a bench it seems but having the extra insulation may be nice to have for those cold days here and there.
  15. Ice

    Hey thanks for the replies everybody, I called up to a few places and it sounded like trucks are driving out on most lakes around there. I'll still take the sportsman just to be a little safer though.
