Nice Bud!  Yeah Aurora was exactly what I was thinking but no ice last year that I heard of.  My bike isn't setup as stout as yours is so I'd surely wreck if I actually rode it out onto the cap. Thought I could use it to access the bays on on the south or east side more easily though. I'm a putzer so always thinking of fishing stuff to fiddle with.

When's someone going to downsize and make a mini Fordson? No chains needed...   ;D

We get measurable snow which creates deep slush , other wise I would consider a bike , If not walking I take my tundra

Sure have, F&R. They were the hot thing around here years ago, lotsa duck hunters used 'em.  :)

Someone just needs to make an ice-fishing hovercraft.  Strap on an auger carrier and yer good to go!;D

How about e-trikes? Then you have the three wheel stability, plus a good luggage rack front and back.

For the yuppy that likes the next "better than sliced bread" toy, it should be great. For the die hard fisherman the gets out during any & all conditions - NOPE. First signs of deep snow with slush, hauling your gear you'd be screwed. a chained up wheeler &/or a sled would be money way better spent.

Just got this from Snowdog about when they were going to market an electric version;

Thank you for your interest!
We are planning to launch it to the US market in December-January, 2022/2023.

  • Take a kid fishing! Pay it forward!!
Trikes are great, more stable and more carrying ability. Maybe not as good in deeper snow. Check them out!! :thumbsup: :flex: ;)2
