The date has been set for the 4th Annual Portable Modification Get Together!!!

When: Saturday, September 27

Where: Thorne Brothers in Fridley, MN

This will be the fourth year of the portable fish house modifying party! A great way to kick-off the upcoming ice fishing season and an easy way to get together with other ice fishing die hards to talk about ice fishing when the temps are warm smile

Come see various modifications that other anglers have done to their fish houses. Also partake/watch modifications being done that day! Also see new product from various reps and manufacturers in attendance!

There will be seminars and food too!

Also, stock up on gear as everything in Thorne Bros will be on SALE!!!

So, mark your calender for Saturday, September 27 and join in on the fun!

Shack, bring your shack. You have done some pretty cool mods and I am sure lots of others would love to see what you've done. It would be cool to see Hanson's modded porty too, I know he has done some cool stuff as well.

I will be there for sure. Maybe Hunter will win another Ice Spud.

Sure hope I can make this one. Folks, if you haven't been to a mod get together you really should go. Heck, the seminars alone are worth the trip, but a Thorne Bros sale to boot is tough to pass up!!!

Lots of great ice shack ideas get passed along during this get together.

If I make it I'll bring my modded out Otter.

We already have various companies/sponsors lined up that are going to donate product for giveaways again like last year. Some cool stuff starting to trickle in smile

We're also going to work on having ice fishing gear available at that time as well. We're going to do our best to put in an early order for some of the product we carry so you have an early opportunity to buy some gear. We'll be the first place in town to have the ice fishing gear out! smile

    • Well, they did throw in the Bridge to Nowhere booby prize, so that should make it all better..
    • I hear you, but all the folks ranting and raving on here would not take to kindly to a bunch of arm chairs telling them how to do their job... that I know.  It is great as a public to be informed, but to think we are more equipped than the experts to handle it, just isn't so.  It is a crappy situation no doubt, but constantly criticizing and/or deciding we are going to do it our own way, isn't going to help it, in my opinion.
    • Thanks for the heads up man I was looking at Garmins but I feel like the only ones I saw with SI were way out of my price range ha
    • I need to make a beer run the fridge is getting low up in here.   #rentfree
    • What does everyone use? decoy string mono braid thanks.
    • LOL!  The truth of the matter is, CWD is widespread across the country and I believe in only one state, somewhere out west, has it caused population level decreases.  The DNR has no choice but to try their darnedest to eliminate it.  If they don't and it becomes widespread, they will be ridiculed to no end.  If they try to fight it, they will still be ridiculed when they fail to eliminate it, but at least they tried.  IMVHO, it is here, just like the invasive species continuing to spread in our lakes.  There is no way to eliminate it.  But as I stated, it won't significantly impact deer numbers in the state.  The disease will kill far fewer deer than the efforts to get rid of it will.  It is mainly the health issues to worry about.  But I've been wrong once or twice before.
    • Was Hillarys plan to help rural America much like Obama's and Rick Nolan's? Wait for an industry to collapse then push for tarriffs a year after the fact and claim victory?
    • Kinda like how Trump is the grand wizard of the klan because he hasn't  denounced every supporter he's had well enough.
    • Regardless of where you put that fan you'll still need another fan of some sort to circulate the air around the house. The heater one only get the air out and off the heat exchange. Put one or two more in the upper corners blowing the air back down. Hugger style ceiling fans if you have room are the best. The blades need at bare minimum 4 inches and most experts say 8 inches of clearance to the ceiling. I'm at about 4 1/2 and it works fine.
