I took 1/2 green treated plywood and hinged it for easy storage and cut my holes. Works Great.

I picked up a couple of "mats" from Menards that I can place my feet on while fishing. The nice thing about these is that they are the stress type ones so they are fairly flexible and I haven't had any problems pulling them back up off of the ice when I want to move. They also aren't solid but a very wide mesh and anything on my boots just runs down to the ice.

Not real fun when there isn't any snow on top of the ice as they will slip out from under you until the heater gets you some melting but now I know to be careful for the first while.

I love that metrodome turf picture!

A buddy of mine uses the rubber mats used behind most bars. They are layed out in 12" sections and you can cut out a section for the ice holes. They are a little heavy but they wear like iron and don't freeze to the ice. Check out a bar supply store or inquire at your favorite watering hole.

At Fleet/Farms they sell "runners" out of the floor matt like material. Its hard to describe but its rubberized on the back and thin so it wouldn't take up much room. And its on big rolls and you buy it by the foot so it could work for any house.

    • New ABC / WaPo Poll Shows Drop In Trump Favorability Courtesy Of Aggressive "Oversamples" Jan 17, 2017 3:42 PM   In the month leading up to the election on November 8th, we repeatedly demonstrated how the mainstream media polls from the likes of ABC/Washington Post, CNN and Reuters repeatedly manipulated their poll samples to engineer their desired results, namely a large Hillary Clinton lead (see "New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through 'Oversamples'" and "ABC/Wapo Effectively Admit To Poll Tampering As Hillary's "Lead" Shrinks To 2-Points").  In fact, just 16 days prior to the election an ABC/Wapo poll showed a 12-point lead for Hillary, a result that obviously turned out to be embarrassingly wrong for the pollsters. But, proving they still got it, ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump's favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious "oversamples" we've seen.  The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans...   ...while the CNN poll showed a similar 8-point advantage for Democrats with only 24% of respondents identifying as Republicans.
