Nice! That walleye was a the icing (on the cake) and Slayer that was thoughtful of you to hold up that other guy’s fish for the photo.

I can hardly believe it.  I have to figure out what perch repellant has gotten into my ice fishing gear. ;D  Nice job.  And a wally no less.

Working stiffs.  Didn't go to Jism.  Got some revenge on Slayer's favorite perch lake.  Warm day.  Ice is okay, 5-6".  No problem getting on.  Saw someone with an 18.5" wally...  And another with 2 trout.  I only caught perch this time.



Gettin the kinks out on my new wheeled sled.  Riser support cracked on set up but still made the trip from car to lake, and back.  Painting this summer.

As far as electronic gadgets, a fish finder and GPS is about as far as I will go.  Slayer, just remember, next step after electric auger is an electronic jawjacker...  ;D

Great sled...I think I may steal your ski/wheel idea for my rover.

Here's how I rigged mine:
I used some Harbor Freight wheels, some aluminum rods with clips on the ends and some copper tube for bushings to make some removable wheels for my Smitty sled. When I get on the lake the wheels come off and stack in a 5 gallon bucket perfectly.

Mine are 3/8" steel axles.  Modeled after Grababresky's.  But lighter compact wheels.  My smitty sled is bolted together but breaks down with screwdriver only for transport.  The wooden box bolts on this base - so, I can lift the whole thing in rough terrain.  My old sled was too heavy but this one is much lighter.  I will post this in the Smitty Sled section, too.
