Hi Guys, I am getting excited for the hard water season. That being said, I am building a sled to pull my gear out (shelter, heater, chairs, rods, etc.) onto the lake. I am planning on using 2x4's and some SS sheet metal for the shoes of the sled.

I'd love to see/hear about your ice fishing sleds to give me ideas as to how I should design and build mine.

Go into the "search" bar and type in Smitty Sled for some links to some great ideas on how to build sleds similar to what you are looking to do.

I also added a link to my project from last year. Others added replies with good feedback. Have fun with the build and add pics
Cheers

This little piece of plywood ads lots of stability - the sled will not slide left- right.

Thanks guys!

I really like yours Speo. I have plastic sled like your's there, but its just too small. I like how you incorporated it with your custom sled. I think I will do the same!
