New Orange Otter Ice Houses at FF

18 posts in this topic

Any one check out the Otter Ice house Packages at FF? They have a med size with bench seat and velcro windows for $349 but can not find them on any web site? They are black with orange top. That same house the green Cabin is $599 with a bench seat from the Otter site.

The Wild series is a real nice house for the price. Bench seat gives you good seating room as well as a place to set your unused gear when fishing.

Same Otter quality we all love at a nice price.

I think I will be running the 1 man wild series house for early ice this season.

I think those have a cheaper thinner fabric than the real otters don't they?

Thanks that was what I was looking for, they are not on Otters web site. Thats why I asked. Thought they were custom made for FF because of the orange color.

yep the wild houses use a 600 denier while the true otter houses use a 900 denier, but I think for the price and the fact that they are 12 pounds lighter they would be great for hole hopping

I bought one of these at gander last spring for a really cheap price. I paid under 250.00!! after taxes! The only problem is that the tub is too small for the brackets for the seat!1 they claimed that is was not opened and was the right parts but it was not! I just did some mods of my own and waaalllaaa. Its even better now!Ha! they are nice and light for one person to lift into a truck.

I saw the 2 man in the ad at Fleet Farm at a pretty good price. Anybody know what the 1 man sells for?

Im pretty sure the Wild sleds are a bit more lifted on the front sides but are a very heavy duty sled and are very durable. Like I tel everyone. Put Hyfax on your sled and you wont have any worries.

I think you are correct Northlander. I sat on the seat on the front side of the Wild sled that was on display. The whole thing tipped forward ... that doesn't happen with my otter lodge.

If you have a bench seat and sit on the very end of any empty sled that has curved up front, it will tip. Unless the sled is big enough to displace your body weigh. Most med. sized shacks are not that big.

The Team Wild sled is very nice. It does have a raised front and a nice cut out on the side for fishing.

I got one of the Team Wild 3 this year and it is a very nice setup for the price. Looks cool also wink

If you look at otters website, you can find a link for Team Wild right at the bottom of the home page.

I'm looking at one of these as well, Can you tell me how tall it is when collapsed? I only have 20.5" clearance under my bed cover on my pickup, will it fit? They claim 16" in the info. but I find that hard to believe with a bench (even folded)...

    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
