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.

    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • 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!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
    • I really hope the wolves aren't seriously considering this. You take LeBron James off the cavs, and Irving leads them to an 8 seed in the east, at best! This is going to be KAT's team for years to come, so if Irving is looking to be top dog, it certainly won't be here! Personally, I don't think he'll be traded. If the lakers show any sign of improvement in this upcoming season, LeBron will be leaving to go there anyway, so Irving just needs to be patient and he'll be he top guy again.
    • We're definitely checking out our options in a couple of areas we like but I'm not sure if it will happen as early as next year or not.
    • Definitely something to be said about parking it an leaving.  My fees are nothing except the bills I help pay for at the family cabin.  Would hate hooking and unhooking all the time.
    • Still have my old sno-boat. Best portable shelter out there for pulling by hand. You scored a heck of a deal! I feel mine is irreplaceable! I don't use it much, but when I do, I'm so glad I have taken care of it and still have it 16 years later. I've had 1 zipper replaced on the D-door and some patching done at Canvas Craft years ago.  I think the other zipper is on it's way out, and will definitely get that repaired when needed. 
    • If you planning on doing any hand pulling at all then do not get the lodge she is a tank and would not fit in a short box. As long as your not 300+ lbs you'll be perfectly comfortable with 2 adults in the cabin. Also a cheap alternative to Hifax are a set of old downhill skis (normally $7-15 @ goodwill) I pull mine across parking lots all the time behind the wheeler and they hold up really well. An added bonus is if you cut them off at the end of the sled then they work great for loading and unloading the shack from your pickup box by yourself because the steel sides dig into the ground a bit keeping the bottom from sliding out.
