Summer dreaming...

I was at a buddy's cabin and he showed me his (new to him) 2015 Polaris Indy Voyager with 550 fan. Wow it is really nice, looks like a great ice fishing sled with that long cargo area and long track. Makes a guy drool and wanting the white stuff to come ;) 

I think he got with 1k miles and paid about $5k delivered to his cabin near Sturgeon Lake. Not sure if it was a rental from out west or not, but it sure looked clean and had those really wide skis on it.

This? It should make a great Ice fishing or trail riding sled.

Have him look over the hood real close where faded Out of State tag or Rental numbers may have been on the front or sides of the hood to tell if it was a rental. They clean them up pretty well though.

I talked to and watched a guy in a sled rental shop in West Yellow Stone one spring a few years ago cleaning up rentals to resale. They replace ripped seats, cracked windshields, bad skis, etc, took the tags and numbers off and best of all. Put a different speedo in. I pressed him on that part and he said at that time there was no law about it! :(

I've seen semi loads of these for Sale at the Hay days and grass drags in the fall around MN.

Yep like that one, but the skis looked even wider. Not sure if they were wider than those, but sure looked like it. He said the 600 liquid cooled was about $1k-$1.5k more, so he went for the 550 since it will be used mostly for ice fishing. Nice sled :)

May be suggest that he runs a compression test on it now before winter if he didn't do that when he bought it. Just a thought on a used sled.

    • I’m in a similar situation right now and I am “freaking out” how did it work out for you what paper work did you file? Who did you reach out to?
    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme. 
    • New Ice shelter coming this fall from Otter and Polaris specifically made for full size Rangers.  This will be available through Polaris Dealers.   https://fishingminnesota.com/forums/topic/210952-new-ice-shelter-from-polaris-and-otter/
