ICE SCOUT by Glacier

Recommended Posts

Anyone use one of these. I am think ahead to next year already. I have a otter lodge and while it is nice and I love it for fish with 2 people it gets a little heavy to work with when I am by myself. So I saw these and thought since I fish by myself a lot that they would work well in my situtation being I have a 4 wheeler. So I have a few questions
1. I am a big guy 6'3" 300 lbs will I fit in one of these?
2. It is possible to fish with one of these without being attach to a ATV isn't it?
3. Can you leave it one the ATV when traveling down the road or is it best to detach and put in a pick up when heading down the road?
4. It is possible to fish 2 holes isn't it?
5. How do they handle in the wind?
That should do it for now thanks for the help..

FYI, check out www.ryansatvracks.com they have the HAND-E-HOUSE and was at the last Iceleaders event. It's bigger than the glacier, you can fish two lines, it's 6' tall so you ( most of us ) can stand up in it. They stay on the ATV all the time, you can load it in the back of your truck and drive down the freeway no problem.

I went straight to Glacier to get your answers for you:

Anyone use one of these. I am think ahead to next year already. I have a otter lodge and while it is nice and I love it for fish with 2 people it gets a little heavy to work with when I am by myself. So I saw these and thought since I fish by myself a lot that they would work well in my situtation being I have a 4 wheeler. So I have a few questions

1. I am a big guy 6'3" 300 lbs will I fit in one of these?
Answer: We actually have a representative who is the same measurements as you and has no problem fitting in the Ice Scout, with his heavy jacket as well. So that may be reassuring to you, there.

2. It is possible to fish with one of these without being attach to a ATV isn't it?
Answer: I don't believe so. Once you get up it may tip over, and there would be no extra support in winds.

3. Can you leave it one the ATV when traveling down the road or is it best to detach and put in a pick up when heading down the road?
Answer: It folds back up and straps securely to your ATV for easy transportation. No need to take it off. This also allows extra storage for your auger, rod, locator, etc. Just strap it all right with the shelter.

4. It is possible to fish 2 holes isn't it?
Answer: Yes one directly in front and one more behind, or you also have 30" to work with width wise.

5. How do they handle in the wind?
Answer: They are made specifically as windbreakers for you. As long as you keep it attached to the ATV you will have no problem. Glacier also offers Ice Anchors which come with instructions for added security.

I hope this answers your questions for you. If you need anything further, please go to the Ice Fishing Gear link above and look for the Glacier link. Thank you for your inquiries!

P.S. Glacier 2's and Glacier 3's have a sled for easy towing across the ice and offer even more room. They are very light, and some people tow these right behind their ATV with all the gear strapped in as well. That way they can fish with one or two people or by themself, and with up to three holes. So that is another option for you!!! We've sold 1000's of all styles!!!!

Alright thanks Rick I will have to looking into those before next season. I think they would be sweet when I am just running with my 4 wheeler. The otter is tough to bet when there is more than just myself but I want something lighter for when I am fishing alone.

    • 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.
