Stacking Bodies

Recommended Posts

How do you guys stack bodies in your hubs?  I have a 3 person and can fit 3 grown men in there just fine.  I've been putting them all in a line and have had a heater in front of the holes, but I was wondering if there are any other, better configurations to consider.  I don't like the idea of having 3 lines all in a row, so something like the middle picture might be better, or maybe I'm just over thinking and should just get out and fish ;-)

This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.

Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!

 

Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.

 

I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.

Haha gotta have a catchy title to grab peoples interest, right?

So something like this?  Might be a smidge tight that wat, but might also work really well! I'll have to give it a shot! 

huh, I guess I haven't had that problem, If I have 2 guys, I'll pull my sled inside and have it between us so all the gear and snacks are handy. 

Thanks for the input!

Yep, that's what I was thinking, just didn't know how to create a graphic. That set-up wouldn't work if people are sitting in chairs and fishing out of two holes, but I know a lot of guys have their Ice Armor type of gear on and kneel because the move often.  I, on the other hand, like to show those fish who's boss and basically refuse to move once I'm set up.

Looks like a good plan - warmer in the center also.

 

Bring a couple of pieces of 24 to 30" by 48 to 60" pieces of plywood along to lay down, and you'll have a nice dry place to sit.

I've been thinking about getting a few industrial kitchen floor mats with the holes in them to keep feet off the ice and out of water, plus they provide some slip protection.

I think I may have tried that once and it's pretty tight....unless you have a very short rod.

I have fished 3 people and 6 holes in my Eskimo hub a couple of times. No extra room, but worked fine.

One buddy heater, 2 buckets, and 3 folding stools.

Kind a hybrid of figure 4 and figure 5.

Here's the layout I would go with.

The guy that owns the house picks where he wants to fish and the other two can find a spot or fish outside if they don't like it!! :angry:

 

Works for me. :D

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
