Are you kidding me! I had the Ice Cube set up in the house, but somebody made me take it down... I was perfectly happy sitting in there tying up jigs and spooling up reels. Laying out my gear...

The only reason I haven't done the same thing with my voyeaguer is because it is still up in the rafters. Will be sown this weekend though. grin

OK let's look at this way. We are looking forward to driving out on the ice in -25 degrees weather, drilling a couple holes in the ice, putting up a flimsy shelter, firing up an open flame heater, dropping a line down a hole and figuring we have it made. Of course we are crazy crazy

But is sure as h--- beats sitting there watching cartoonies all winter grin

my OL found me sitting in my freshly built Portable shanty last season. I hear a knock on the door and a "are you in there?"

she just couldnt understand what I was doing till I convinced her to come in and have a seat. warm, low light and quiet.

she understood after that.

I cleaned out the wife’s workout room to set up my 6800. How many times do you wait till you get out on the first ice, set up your house, and find something torn or needs to be fixed? You know that it's now too cold to fix it and if you had time to fix it at home you could be out fishing and just deal with it.

So that’s why I have it set up so I can have a hassle free season and find some cure to my addiction until my wife suggests some sort of rehab.

Well umm..(tear).. I guess thats b b because I don't own any ice shelter cry

There is just something relaxing about sitting in the portable fish house with all my gear and the heater on and my portable radio going and having a beer in my hand while I tie up jigs

    • The new ones don't stay in place very well either. I don't think you would want to put your weight on one either but they work for what they are. Now I kind of seem to remember seeing them at their shop, one the reasons they were redoing them was because enough air didn't go thru them too well.  I think a product right between these two designs would be perfect.Thanks for the reply, 
    • If this happens I will move to Canada but not for the healthcare, just the fishing. Any more bailouts and I riot, we all should, I don't care what they are for.
    • Nah, you and your glorious leader have already shown that you are intimidated by men in tights.
    • Well despite our so so play that last couple of weeks we are still doing pretty well. Really wish we could have closed out that game against Vancouver this road trip but its a long season and we will win/lose games that should have gone the other way many times. Wild are currently sitting 6th in the conference, we have the best goal differential in the west (+16) and 4 games in hand on the two teams behind us. Read somewhere our advanced stats are good too. Dubs is playing amazing, our D is alwasy solid. Scoring is still somewhat of a issue but we are sitting middle of the pack in the NHL so as long as the D holds we should be ok.
    • Those are the 1st gen covers. They done stay in place, at all. Definitely not child or dog proof. I bought the new honeycomb version at the show and they seem way better. 
    • Start one? Bahahahahahaha!
    • Well the teriyaki sticks are very good, I made them to Curlys recipe but with powdered milk (RH1) and more water to compensate. Then I made the pepper sticks but instead of water I used Grainbelt Nordeast, close to three bottles for a ten pound batch. I also added powdered milk, minced garlic from a jar and mustard seed.  What a great flavor! These mixes are proving to be tasty.    I'm smoking 3 loins of canadian bacon on Saturday.    Come on ice!
    • You guys need to start an HSO drama club..    
    • Just hold the bottom of the ducer to your ear with the unit on and if you hear it clicking it's good. If not it's junk.
    • Where did you get those heavy duty hole cover with the holes in them? I just checked their site and don't see them. I might have to stop over at their office today.
