single ice house

Recommended Posts

I don't want to start a Ford vs. Chevy vs. Dodge vs. Toyota thread, but I am looking for a one man ice house right now. The frabill recon is priced right (120), I own a voyager so I have sat in a scout (160-ish) and a pro (240ish) the pro is too much right now... any other makers to look at or consider? I don't thinkt he recon comes with a seat like the old rangers did. does Otter make a small one man house that is on the good side of 175? including the sled?

Thanks for helping me out

I know nothing aboot the Otters.

Have you thought of a Fish Trap Guide? I had one and it was a great one man. Small enough for one dude to easily handle yet big enough for all your stuff and a couple of holes.

Picks, if you are interested in Otters, maybe give me a email as I might be able to help chris at boxmeyers (you know what). I got a 2 man Otter Medium Cabin this year and am very happy with it.

You can learn more about Otters anyway, from the link from this site to their main HSOforum with tons of info. Yes, they do have one man shack/sleds.

I have a clam voyager, I want something light and small so when I want to go fishing solo, I am not pulling 200 pounds of sled and stuff along to go fishing

Check out the Otter Small Den, Small Cottage or Wilderness Perch. I also like the Fishtrap Pro for a light single person house. Prices should start coming down soon with stores clearing out their winter stock. It's alrready happening in some stores.

Yep, I am not talking about the Cabin or me selling it, just that if you decide to get a smaller Otter, I might be able to help you out with some info that you might be interested in.

Thanks everybody, now, can I get one of you to convince my wife I need this new ice house? Wait, I'll make her pull the voyager around the yard once, she might buy it for me then.....Does eskimo make a one person house?

Well, it is not any advertising or anything, but I got mine from the factory as seconds. You just need to call them up and see what might be in stock. You have to pick it up from the factory, they don't deliver, so if you are far from the Monticello MN area, it probably is not for you.

The price is quite, well, good, to say the least. Mine is in perfect condition 100%. Anyway, something to consider, and even in this closeout season of the year, I bet you would be surprised at the price. Give it a try. Hope that does not violate the forum rules, but Otter is a sponsor...

Good luck.

i just purchased a Frabill Ultralight single man ice house that was last years model and had it out last night. i was very pleased. it kept me warm even without a heater because of the black fabric and it was very wind proof. so far i am very pleased.

    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
    • Maybe that is the way they are going to move it all on-line?  
    • Found a giant lichen orbweaver with prey and a Nordmann's orbweaver hanging around our deck.
    • I guess it depends what you are looking for. I just picked up 2 pairs of jeans for close to 50% off but this was also online and not a store.
