The Wilcraft Hybrid Ice Fishing ATV

A couple years ago at the St. Paul Ice Fishing show, I first encountered the Wilcraft, a hybrid ATV that is advertised to float on water. I enjoyed the concept of being able to float out to first or last ice without needing a canoe or kayak, and without the fear of falling through the ice.

This year, I got a closer look at the machine in action on the ice at the World Ice Fishing Championships in Wausau. There I had discussions with the representative Don and convinced him to come to my town of Onalaska, just a couple hours from Wilcraft’s offices, to test it out on my home water–and on last ice.

I have to say that I was impressed with the Wilcraft system. It did exactly what Don said it was capable of.

The first test run was on the stable ice of Lake Onalaska. I wasn’t quite convinced that the Wilcraft was as reliable as advertised. Don deployed the Wilcraft and we went fishing on Lake Onalaska for perch and panfish.
