Default Otter Creek Sat Jan 7

I have been wanting to get out and finally made a trip to Otter Creek Saturday.

It was last minute so I didn't get there until about 11 am. Stayed until 3:30 pm, fishing was slow ended up catching 5, 2 were about 12-13 inches and 3 were 18 inch footballs that weighed 2.5 lbs each give or take an ounce.

Most bites were soft, one was toward the end as I was packing up and not watching, I heard a noise and looked over and my bucket was tipped over and the pole was half way down in the hole, I was lucky the bucket holder held on to the pole, when I started reeling it in it took a hard run and took a lot of line before he snapped my 6 lb flourocaron leader.

Kept a couple for the grill and Sunday dinner. Good eating firm and salmon colored meat.

I always try a little power bait so I know how it works in case I take the grand kids or scouts up.

Here's my setup.

Yeah, I think I had 6 with me that had reels on, I only had 3 or 4 set up. That way I can drop one down while removing a fish if I am going to keep it and it is faster to try different Jigs, I am always tying on a different one to try while waiting for a bite.

I don't know if you can tell in the pic but that jig box is sitting on top of another one of the same size with different jig sizes and colors. Then there are 4 others of the same size still in the tackle box with bigger ones for lake trout and spinners and spoons.

I usually don't have the tent set up but it got a little windy and cold when it started to snow.

This is what I usually have and I have had this out on Otter just not this trip because it was close to shore.

I am very very near to the point I want to sell my snowmobiles and get tracks for my ATV. I for sure will do it in the next 5 years as I'm getting too old to pull start those high compression 800's on a -5F morning.

I can imagine me in retirement with the wife (who loves ice fishing), putting out to the ole ice fishing hole in a heated cab UTV with a track kit

I bought a new snowmobile the same year I bought the ATV with tracks, (2006), I sold the snowmobile 3 years later since I hadn't even put 100 miles on it.
They are amazing they just don't have the speed of a snowmobile.

I have to go to communications sites in the winter. Here it is at 10,000 ft.

How much are the tracks. How hard are they to take on and off

3 to 4k depending on brand, once the mounting kit is installed its just like changing a tire.

at work I have tracks for 2 800 Polaris atvs and a set for our 1000 general. hate em all. exactly like the DMV sloths in the zootopia movie. watching paint dry is like nascar compared to these things. run em too far, they overheat. recommended low range for all purposes. but if you like driving a bus instead of a Ferrari, they work reasonably well, expensive too, you will be into them 2 or 3 grand. to each his own, lot of people love em, personally I would rather have a snowmobile. o' wait. I do have a bunch of them. btw, don't get into snowmobiling unless you can light up a hundred dollar bill and comfortably watch it burn to ashes.

I have snowmobiles... several of them. They just get harder to start every year. Mine are paid for, 1 new sled with electric start would be way more than a set of tracks on my Foreman.
