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.
