He brings the table out to the shack and puts his vex/camera on it so he doesn't have to look down the hole all day. Keeps his stuff warmer and dry too. I do the same but with a plastic table. Works pretty good.

I have a camouflage hunting box I bring my bait/supplies onto the ice with. After I get setup I take my tackle boxes out of the hunting box and place the Marcum on top of the box just on the opposite side of the hole. This keeps it dry and it's at the perfect height I can see both the flasher screen and my spring bobber at once instead of having to bend over and staring almost down the hole to read my flasher and getting marc. neck pains.BT

Its a good idea, I like it.. Keeping those item off the ice will give you longer run time as well.. And you can probably fish right under the table? Its a good idea for cramped places.

thanks for the idea, keep em coming.

for those that dont like it.. mama always said.. if you cant say something nice..

Thanks Evinrude! Definitely gets some ideas going. The one thing we are all in need of, no matter what size fish house, is more space.

I have that same TV tray ... don't think the wife would be too pleased with me if I started using it as a piece if ice fishing gear wink Always good to think outside the box though.

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
