Argo 8X8 750 HDi


Fish With Jim Outfitters provides the safest ice fishing transportation with our Argo 750 HDi. Our Argo is outfitted with a custom heated aluminum cabin, studded tracks, winch, all the power, maneuverability and light ride to safely travel the frozen lakes. Argos have extremely low ground pressure making more frozen lakes and streams into clear ice ways for quick, safe, easy transits. Even if the ice lets you down, our Argo will keep going with its amphibious capability.  The rubber tracks propels the Argo through the water until, when the ice is thick enough, it can claw its way back out, keeping you safe and mobile. Argo is the most versatile vehicle for ice conditions. On rugged ice packs, ridges and slopes, Argo’s low center of gravity, even when loaded with supplies, protects our passengers, making for extreme safe ice travel.

Taiga Dog


The Fish With Jim Outfitters Taiga Dog is the perfect tool for fishing small inland lakes and early ice. The Taiga Dog has the ability to pull heavy loads over snow and Ice.  It is a lightwieght machine that has a very large footprint that allows for the machine to be used during thinner ice applications.
