Portable shelter

4 posts in this topic

I purchased a 6X12 Canvascraft shelter, and it is without a doubt the ultimate portable ice fishing shelter. If you are interested in fishing with someone else, this is definitely the best option. Fishing with 4 people is not uncomfortable, and if you're only fishing with 2, you could "camp" inside this shelter for days without a problem. Just wanted people to know there are options other than the shelters that are heavily advertised!

Canvas Craft is located in Ramsey right off Hwy. 10. They have a newer material that is White on the inside and Black on the outside with Thinsulate sandwhiched in between.

I believe that Canvas Craft and Otter Outdoors used to be connected with each other. The new white interior is real nice, but about doubles the cost of the house. Very high quality build. Another option you should consider is the PolarSport double wide. Same concept as the Otterskin from Canvas Craft, but less expensive and lighter in overall weight. It nice that we have so many choices these days :-)

Canvas Craft's thinsulate insulated houses are the ultimate! We went to Red Lake in Feb-March and were out there for 3 days and 2 nights. At that time the temps overnight went down to -25 F. and we had 70 F. inside with just a Mr. Heater/Cooker running on low and a Coleman lantern burning. We have an 8x8 and would recommend the insulated houses to anyone, anytime. Canvas Craft used to make the houses for Otter but the people at C.C. told us that Otter ventured out on their own and are sewing their own houses now. The insulted houses C.C. make are the best thing ever invented!
