Questions on Ice Show

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. I'm thinking of attending the show this weekend. My primary purpose is that I am shopping for a flip style shack. Are the deals at the show going to be better than I can find on sale, elsewhere?

I'm considering the Frabill XL Twin, Fish Trap Guide, Otter Lodge, and Eskimo QFII or QFIII. Any advu=ice would also be appreciated.

Thanks.

I did get a decent deal last year on a eskimo traveler. There are some deals there not huge but you will find some good prices.

i am sure you are getting the same "deal" price they would normally offer. Your really benifit is having every brand, type, model, whatever, all in the same place at the same time. You get to try them all out with out driving all over town.

Well I own a Otter resort portable that I bought at the ice show 2 yrs. ago and I am very pleased with it so far. Very easy to load/unload, stays plenty warm, sets up in no time, and I can pull it behind my sled going 60 mph across the lake if I want. Everything fits in the sled of the shack, throw the cover on and away you go. Plenty of room when set up and well worth the money if you ask me.

You can usually do better at a major sporting-goods retailer by using their credit card. Most of them offer 10% off, and 12 month same as cash deals. And returning products that are a not quite right are much easier at a store than chasing down the manufacturer.

    • They do some crazy things. I recall last year a grouse would follow a atv around everytime the person would drive into the birds home area.
    • Maybe, but they are only about 5 feet long fully extended. Also, mine has the side slide outs, not the front and back so there isn't much room for anything near the door. But maybe it was for something smaller over the door. I will investigate further this evening. 
    • Well, as I posted in the hummingbirds thread (and now hereby update) still hummers in Rochester and robins too.   The hummers were at the feeder this morning and three or 4 robins on the lawn.  Also had chickadees, nuthatches and a few various finches at the seed feeder.    
    • I'm pretty sure they are for the outside awning.  Go to site below.  Click on 1979 brochures.  Then click on page 07.  It shows a camper with two poles holding up an awning. That may be why the flat bottom piece.      http://www.popupcamperhistory.com/bethanyimages.html  
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Lake of the Woods water temps are steadily falling into the mid to low 50’s. This past week cold fronts and strong winds have fish schooling up and feeding heavily.

      In Minnesota, look to rocky bays and adjacent reefs in 15-22ft. of water.  A jig and minnow is all that is needed to catch a limit in a short period of time. Bottle necks between islands in the NW Angle are also worth fishing in the evenings.
       
      In Canada, the fishing has been excellent.  Crappie, walleye and perch are all schooling up and taking a jig and minnow.  With the water temperatures dropping, expect to see the muskie bite increase while trolling. 

      We will be closing October 22nd for ice in! Contact us for availability for your fall fishing trip!

      We hope to see you soon,
      Sunset Lodge
    • I was bow hunting this weekend and had 3 flush out from under my stand.  One of them came back later on and tried to get me out of the tree.  It dove at me several times.  I had to take my hat off and smack it before it finally decided to give up.  Never had a bird do that and wouldn't have guessed a grouse would have been the culprit. 
    • No, there were other poles for that.
    • Sounds like I’m right on track. I’ll just get everything I need now. Think I’ll wait till next spring for engine oil but I’ll do front and rear diffs now as well as the tranny. I’ll grease everything to that hasen’t been done for a while. For the front diff change did you need to pull the front tire off like the maual says to? Not going to lie that manual is pretty fauge.
