ultimate ice sled

Was putting the ice fishing sled away today and wanted to share a few pictures of what has become a reaaly nice ice sled. It is all aluminum. The box is diamond deck aluminum.
It holds;
 
3  horse 8" power auger
Fishin buddy fish finder
has a custom rod holder that holds 6 rods up to 42" (full)
4 rod holders or stands
5 large tip ups
Sportcat heater ( going to be replaced with the aqua view next year)
gaff
lantern
2 tube chairs
Frabill two man ice hut. Slides into slot under sled.
GPS and radio
Tackle boxes
50ft safety rope and picks.
snow shovel
One man can load and unload it into a truck. The wheels are to get you across dry parking lots. Pull a pin and they come off..
Any thing under 6 " of snow on the ice and one man can pull with ease.
The box is removeable in seconds and the sled can be used for an ice rescue if needed.You happen to see it on the ice stop by and say hi..

    VERY nice! How much do you have invested? That really beats my 2 five gallon buckets.

    Do fish pee?

    Probably $300 in the box and sled.

    Show off!!!







    Nice setup.  I just started and wont be buying anything fancy for a while.  I can already see a need for a better sled than I've used (kid's old orange slim thingy) and will not be using buckets for holding rods anymore.  I tipped once Sunday and thankfully it fell away from the poles sticking up.  My day would've been over before it started.  Hadn't thought of a box.  Will now.

    As for shelters, what are the kind that collapse down to about the size of my wallet?  I want nothing to do with poles and breaking down.  I want something that collapses/folds.  I've done well without one, but I've only gone 3 times.  Great weather each time, too.  I've seen the sleds with the seats and storage inside, but I'm not spending that kind of money on ice fishing yet.  You know, with global warming and all.

    Thanks for showing off, er, I mean sharing.

    I have one of the dx3000 ones. If you want to use it for 3 it will be tight quarters but its great for 2. I had a buddy make a sled frame from 1 inch aluminum and skis to drag it. Great shanty for what i use it for.
