New Portable for 2009!!

2 posts in this topic

Introducing the new NTS Fisherman's Portable!!

This winter, I had the opportunity of putting two new Fisherman’s Portables made by Northern Toboggan & Sled to the test. What an incredible product!! I am amazed at the ease of set up, storage capacity, durability, and comfort of this innovative combination.

Here are some action photos from the season:

The model above features the Otter Pro-Series Ice Lodge. The Otter Magnum Sled is replaced with the wooden NTS Freight Sled using a custom adapter box. This set up is complete with interior/exterior storage, exterior auger mounting system, and superior quality steel snowmobile hitch equipped with a slush guard.

This model features the NorpacR2 from Canvas Craft, an amazing house for the really cold days.

The wooden framing used with these products allows for maximum customization. The compartment under the seat is perfect for a custom rod holder, tackle, and Vexilar storage that is snow-free and well protected. The outside compartment keeps my propane tank (plumbed into the house), auger, buckets, and extra gas separate from the interior storage.

NTS uses their proven Freight Sled as the base of the construction which provides an exceptionally smooth ride, no matter what terrain you may be crossing. I’ve put as many as 60 tough miles per day on mine crossing LOW getting to my distant fishing spots. Most of the time I didn’t even know it was behind me… best of all, all of my equipment stays organized and in one piece.

With maximum ease and comfort, fishing this past winter was a blast with these high quality, innovative portables from Northern Toboggan & Sled. I even caught a few fish!

I ran one of these houses almost all of last winter. It is everything that I thought it would be and more! I can set it up or tear it down in under a minute. Everything stays organized and in it's place, most importantly know more having to deal with the problem of what to do with the propane tank or my flasher. Everything stays right where it is suppose to.

Here are a couple of mine after I added a few mods.

    • I have been meaning to try to stick a yote too whenever I was out I hoped one would show up instead of a turkey.
    • should have set up in the grass! Uncle went back for evening set up at a pinch point hen and tom came through to go back to roost but no shot!
    • Beside the fun of fooling a turkey and sticking it witj my bow,this is why I love turkey hunting. Slow smoked with apple on the pellet smoker. 
    • Does anyone have a water driven backup sump pump? They look like the cats meow if you live in town. Or does code even allow them? If they are not allowed what is the best battery backup ones?
    • Got out Saturday morning. Perfect weather. Jakes and hens. Had a new group of 6 hens come in with no tom or jakes.   Did have a yote come out of nowhere right into my dekes. 12 yards. Just as I was drawing on it , it must have scented me and booked. A second yote crossed about 50 yards out. Sticking a yote is on my bucket list.   All in all a great morning.    
    • Good season Wild, onto next year. Should be some changes but I don't expect us to do anything crazy. Need to sign Granlund and Nino and that will use up a lot of our cap space. Can't afford Hanzel and possibly Haula and Vegas will be taking a player off our hands. I'm more interested to see who can sustain or step up their scoring next year or if anyone regresses. Granlund, Coyle, Nino, Zucker, Dumba, Spurgeon and Brodin all had career years, those are good problems to have. They showed us a lot but I think they still have room to grow and that is what we need. We have a nice cast of vets but they are likely too old to lead us to a cup, they would be in more supporting rolls. Hopefully our now seasoned young core and continue to build on their impressive seasons. Always disappointing to lose, even worse when you can't score against your old coach but I like the our team and hopefully we can keep getting better.
    • I'm not the most techy 40yr old out there, so I will try to explain what I'm looking to do and hopefully someone can point me in the direction I need to go. I have a cabin in the Chippawa National Forrest, no phone at the cabin and our cell phones dont work at the cabin either. My teenage son wants to take the wheeler and go riding alone. I worry he's going to get lost or if the wheeler breaks down he can't call my cell for help. When we drive my truck around; the gps in it works all the time.  I know I can put a GPS app on my sons phone so he can track his route in reverse to get back to the cabin. But what if he breaks down?  Does anyone know if there is a gps app that I could "pair" up me and my son's phone so I can see where he is at? kill 2 birds with one stone per say, he can use it to navigate himself on the wheeler and I can see where he's at incase I need to rescue him.  Thanks for the help.
    • Hit the Red River over the weekend for the 2nd time this spring. First outing wasn't great with a handful of smaller cats all under 10lbs. This weekend was a different story as we ended up with 15 cats Friday night. 5 over 10lbs, 2 of which were high teens fish. All caught on cut river bait.  Cats were on the shallow side of the river. Water was high and flowing pretty good. All fish were caught and released. Great night of fishin w no bugs to bother us and very nice weather! Gonna give it another whirl soon in a boat this time. Have a look!!
