Hereís the deal with my sled. I built a box 25Ēx44Ē with 8Ē deep sides. This is just wide enough to fit two 5 gallon buckets. These get placed in the front of the sled with a 2x4 behind to act as a cross brace and to keep the buckets from sliding around. You could use 2x2ís to save weight, but I got lazy. In the middle part of the sled Iíve got a plastic hinged box about 22x16 and my buddy heater fits right along side it. I built a little compartment out of 2x4ís to hold the radio and keep it from sliding around. The back part of the sled is where the auger goes. I notched the box to hold it across and itís worked out well. This whole contraption is mounted on old downhill skis. I put 6 inch long pieces of 2x4 set on edge as a spacer between the skis and box to keep it from dragging in heavy snow. Iíve had it in 12 inches of snow and it stays on top very well. I attached a couple climber type snap links on eye bolts at the back of the sled to attach my Shappel dx3000 to for when I pull both out on the ice. The combo pulls much easier than loading up the shanty and trying to tug that. On the outside of the box I attached 4 broom holders to act as rod holders. These are mounted vertically to the front of the sled, but I may move them to the sides to keep them from getting tangled in the tow rope. I painted it bright yellow so that hopefully it will be more visible to the snowmobiles that like to buzz ice fishermen. All in all it took about 3 hours and the cost was $0 since I had the spare material laying around. I think a 4x8 sheet of plywood, an 8 foot 2x4, some screws and a tube of liquid nails is all that youíd need. I guess weight is about 30lbs. Itís much lighter than my shanty, in any event. The best part is that now I can go fishing, and if Iím not marking fish on the Vexilar, I snap my pole back in to the holder and move. No more struggling with the auger, putting the ice dipper back in the bucket , putting the rod in the bucket, putting the fish in the bucket, knocking the snow off my mittens, and then trying to trudge trough the slush with my auger in 1 hand, bucket in the other hand, and Vexilar in the other. I even leave the bucket seat right in the sled now so Iím highly mobile!
