I prefer the Otter. The tub is much thicker and durable than the Fish Trap tub.

I have a fish trap guide and have seen the voyagers. I really like my trap. the tarp is very strong, u can cut a hole in it and pull as hard as you want on the fabric and it won't rip. I like the shallow sled also, goes through the snow easier than the deep tub sleds. deeper sleds really don't have an advantage in my view, u can fit just as much stuff in a shallow sled, unless you plan on just not organizing anything and piling stuff up in a deeeper sled. i have used my trap for two years hauling it on and off the lake and my sled has held up great...
i've never seen a 3 man otter, seems like every portable you see here are traps and a few frabills..

Otters are nice. The sled in thoose are about the best of any. I cant say the same for the fabric though. I dont know much about the fish traps and really dont want to smile.gif Never rule out the frabill ranger tri-plex 3 man house. The fabric on thoose are the best out of any.

I just bought a new fish trap guide yesterday. I took it out fishing last night and so far I really like it. It's light and pulls through the snow really easy, easier than I thought it would. The only thing I am wondering about is, the support pole that is at the top of the zip-out door covers the upper portion of the windows. Does anybody know if it's supposed to be like this? Also that rear adjustable support pole, I don't understand why you need that because I already have enough tension in the rear. The trap seemed to be fine without it in.

I just bought a fish trap guide yesterday. I took it out last night fishing and so far I really like it. It pulls really easy, easier than I thought it would. But I was wondering, the support pole that is just above the zip-out door on mine goes over and covers up the top portion of the windows. Does anyone know if it's supposed to be like this? Also The rear adjustable support pole I don't understand what its use is because I already have enough tension back there and the shack seems to hold up just as good without it in. Thanks for your help.

    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • 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.
