I'd get the tracked, 4 person version and then stud it, hook up the hitch to your ice shed and away you go!!.

Can you say ULTIMATE ICEFISHING RIG!!!!

They even make a heated canopy for em!

get the track if you buy one, I had one without the track and it would only dig into the snow. track will keep it on top. if you are close to canada, the Argo is made in ontario.

The only thing ARGO's don't like, (tracks or not) are icy hills. Other than that, the sky's the limit. Coolest things ever!

Bobbersgone,
Could you send me an e-mail.
I would like to ask a few questions about your Max IV as I have one of these also.
Thanks, David

I posted a message before my last one and it had the e-mail in that one, but they deleted it for some reason.

An argo would be pretty awesome for out on the ice. You could rig up that bad boy into the (Tom you said it smile.gif) ULTIMATE ICEFISHING RIG! I've seen a couple at different sport shows and they are impressive.

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

Got a question for you argo and max owners. I know they float, but how do you get back onto the ice if you happen to break through?

I saw one last year on MilleLacs trying to go over a snow drift that 4 wheelers were going over and it just made it to the top, and burried all the tires. You would want to go with the tracks for sure!

    • If you can zoom in it's leaning up against my spear house, the red thing.
    • Only if Leech promises to keep his shirt on!
    • i've built/made about 8 of them.  took a piece of mild steel flat bar formed the chisled head by grinding the angle. had it hardened then took 1 1/2 or 2 inch pipe. cut out a slot for the flat bar fit it, welded it up. then took a plumbing end cap, steel, welded that to the pipe, then took a big washer, ground it to fit the end cap, welded it to end cap, then tied a rope to it.
    • Go to Leech's house, put on your apron and have an "artisan" bread baking party then. 😁
    • This white stuff is not bread!  😁
    • mine is about the same and it works!!!
    • Real decision is how much space is needed. Frabill is 6'6"x 6'6", Shappell is 7'6"x 7'6", Eskimo 949i ($289 Amazon & L&M free ship) is 8' x 8'. Find a spot in your home to tape off each hub size than cut 6ea paper circles to hole size and place on floor 3 people fishing. Mark door area on tape put all the gear the 3 people will use fishing, chairs, heater, rod case, coolers, minnow bucket tackle boxes coats  etc and place inside marked floor. You will soon answer the question of which one to buy. 
    • Depending how big you make it, I think the t handle will be awkward, prone to catching on stuff like your jacket, and it's unlikely to be held in a way that makes it useful.     I would put a hole or something for a wrist strap.  And if I was trying to be fancy I would give the upper part a coat of some gritty plasti-dip or a good wrap of hockey tape.
    • I agree Dave. But I hunt and fish and if I looked at it as a cost factor to gain!  Every dang one on this forum site knows the answer to that question! 😉   I just like to try stuff. One time I tapped the Maple trees in my back yard after spending a few bucks on taps and such. I made a block of maple sugar because I didn't know what the H I was doing, but it was Fun anyway!  🙂   Another time I made dried Sage smoke smudges like the Indians make, because some hippy dude at a old time Trapper rendezvous told me they help keep the misquotes away with out using spray. When our friends at the campground came over for a fire they asked if we were smoking Pot over here? 😅 This an't half of it but it's fun to try things. Makes life more interesting.
