i'm looking to sell my portable, just not sure how much to ask. i only have 3 years under my belt for ice fishing so i could use some opinions on a price. just looking for a fair price. paid $250 for it 2 years ago. i've done some mods to it (click below to see) the boats seats $50each, plus the material. still have original bucket seats (rodholder/fav. beverage holder) comes with hitch and cover. just bought fortress so i dont need this one anymore. was thinking about $300. what do you think? fair? too much?

click for mods

I am sorry but I would rather go out and buy a new one, in fact thats what I did this year. For $300 I think it is a little steep with it being used and all. Maybe $200? Its two years old, does it have any tears in the fabric?

Story for you...

I paid $300 for mine about 5 years ago, sold it last year for $225, and with-in a day of posting it at the bait store I had 3 people call and offer to pick it up that day, it was sold in less than 2 hours. One of the later callers offered me $300 for mine with no mods and duct taped holes.

So...

With the price of the new Frabills, (outragous IMO) I would start with what you paid for and add up all the money it cost to modify it, then take about 10% off the total assuming it is in decent shape (no or only small holes in canvas and no bent polls)

I would say that puts you at ~$350, still $150 cheaper than the smaller 2 man new frabill and this house is slightly bigger than that and better outfitted for fishing. Start at that and work down if you can't get it, I would bet you could though.

no need to be sorry. thats why i posted here. i want to give someone fair price but i dont want to get ripped off either. one of the windows does have small crack. no rips or tears in material. although some pin holes. overall its in good shape.

thanks for the input

Like I said, start on the high end and they can bargin you down and both can leave with a good feeling about the sale. FYI I sold mine in early March, not really prime time and had no cover or hitch.

    • Fletcher must really like these guys that are small and quick.  I don't understand why they are trying so hard to keep the team intact.  They haven't made it past the 2nd round for the 5-6 years.  We've had this discussion before, but at what point do you say this just isn't working as is?   They have to move good players to get good players.  
    • I look at it like cast iron....numerous cookings give 'em a perfect seasoning. Gotta leave some residue on IMO.
    • No butcher buddy? They can order one for ya....be advised they have taken a huge leap in prices. Ask a butcher about that. Mine (who's also a good friend) said it's the highest he's ever seen 'em at right now.
    • jhust find a locker plant that smokes their own bellies and buy one from them.
    • I have seen it in Costco quite often.  Didn't look last time.    Or call around, often the meat markets will special order if desired.   Seems it was in the 3 buck a pound area if I remember right.     I don't know how far from a Costco you are, but they are a good place to buy meat.   Sams Club might work also. 
    • Pretty hard to tell. Is this on a TWSP, County or State road? You will need to get a permit from them and build it to their standards if approved. Will you need a culvert? Probably will unless you locate it at a highpoint. Will you have to remove any trees? How much fill is needed? is the ditch deep or shallow? How long do you want it? Hopefully you are not impacting any wetlands... It use to be simple, but now it is much more complicated. Could get spendy...
    • Since my smoker is new for now I throw them in the big wash sinks in the basement with some Dawn and hot water to soak. Then rinse them with more hot water. I'm sure in time once they get more "purplefloyd seasoned". I'll rub them a bit with a grill brush and hit them with a garden hose! 
    • Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
    • Anyone know where I can find it?  Checked a couple grocery stores and even a butcher and nobody has it?  Also what's a decent price if I do find any? 
    • When mine get caked I nuke em on the gas grill for about 15 minutes. easy peasy
