A Superior Ice ShelterOtter has long been the industry’s undisputed leader of high quality, innovative portable ice fishing sleds and shelters. Otter’s ultra durable XT Series, XT Pro Series, XTH Hub’s and Pro Sleds are used and abused by more ice anglers than any other brand. A full range of portable shelters provide frozen water fishermen with the ultimate in comfort, portability and organization on ice.
Another key feature that you are going to want to incorporate into your portable ice fishing houses is insulation. Not only is insulation great for deadining the sounds of the howling wind it will also keep you warm, cosy and possibly save your life in your ice shack. I would reccomend some of that hard, two inch thick, pink or blue insulation. Not only will it do the trick but it is also a lot easier to work with.
If you are going to plan out a ice house that will be transported everytime you head to the ice then your are going to have to think about how you will want to get it out to your location. Some people have made wheels or skis into the bottom of their portable ice fishing houses. Others have even designed their ice fishing domicile to collapse into a sled that can be pulled behind them.
So no matter what you decide to put in your portable ice fishing houses blueprints, just keep in mind what you are going to be using it for and always remember to stay safe on the ice and have a great time out there.
