Winter will soon be upon us again and for those of us that don’t like to take a long hiatus from fishing, the only option is to get out and brave the elements and cold weather and ice fish.
I have never been one that like’s to fish the same lake and the idea of building and transporting a fishing shelter that I built myself seems too cumbersome and time consuming. With that said I did a little research online to find a portable and affordable shelter to block the harsh winds and climate. The best one that I found so far was the Frabill Recruit 1250 Ice Shelter.
- Full-zippered front door
- Padded, swivel boat seat
- 600 Denier tent material
- Full tent insulation
- Super-alloy pole system
- 16.5-feet of fishable space
- 62 lbs.
- Setup: 75.5”L x 52.5”W x 59”H
- Collapsed: 52.5”L x 32”W x 16”H
I found that if you shop around you can find this shelter anywhere from $215 to $399 retail.
