    My 2004 Arctic Cat 500 all ready for ice Fishing. I got a wind shield, hand and thumb warmers, 2500lb Warn winch, ice auger holder, and a back drop basket on it. I built the auger holder and drop basket my self. I built the auger holder out of oak and I built the drop basket out of steel.

    The weather around hear has bean warm to. We got 8'' of snow 2 weeks ago (to warm to plow the gound was very wet and the snow was all gone by noon) and I got deer the day it was snowing. I'm glad I got one becouse they can't be moving very much when it's 50+ out. I hope it gets cold pretty soon.

    Looks great! All you need is an Auger Aid on the front or rear and you can drill holes to your hearts content! :D
