nope there apache tracks.. made for the can-am they don't void warranty, they have a studed track version,but had none in stock..i couldn't wait so i bought the unstudded version..

just a note the...the apache tracks are basically a winter only track,they have sliders on the bottom which need water or snow to lubricate them..

That's a nice ride for sure. I got an older Grizzley last spring and only used it a couple of times for ice. Can't wait to use it a ton this year.

I sold my sled and got an older (91) Polaris 4x4. I have had fun getting it set up for ice fishing and can't wait to use it!

SomethingFishy, where do you usually fish? Do you fish around the St Cloud area at all? My fishing buddy moved to Iowa so I am flying solo now and I wouldn't mind someone to hit the ice with once in a while.

I do fish around St. Cloud after the 1st of January when work hours allow it. I occasionaly travel as far south as Darwin but typically stay around St. Cloud or North between here and LOW.

It's nice to meet new people on the ice, I have wanted to go out the past 2 days but my fishing partner bailed both days and I really don't like fishing alone on early ice.

I figure next weekend whatever day I don't go to the Ice Show I may try to get on the ice.

Lots of sweet rides guys. I couldn't be more jealous.

Nice thing is that they are so far out of reach for my current budget, that I don't have to worry about being tempted to buy one. I guess I'll have to try icefishing21's approach and win one in an ice fishing contest.

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting 
    • Here is the guy that makes state plaques. have one made for which ever state you took your bird in. http://www.rawescapes.com   He is at the Deer classic every year.

    • we will, thx for saving them for us.  
    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!
    • Hey team, last miute success for the team...... nice tom too!!! Heading on vacation today will submit it mid next week when I get back. 22.11lbs with 10 3/4 beard. 
    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
