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.

    • Whats everyone's thoughts on this new feature? https://www.navionics.com/usa/blog/post/ais-in-the-boating-app/  
    • What you are doing is even better than what they hope to achieve with the law. I do the same thing. My minnows never see lake water while in my possession except while riding on a hook. It is not possible to transfer invasives via my minnows or minnow container unless they came from the bait shop and the result would be same either way.   This brings up a good question. Aren't minnows trapped in lakes and streams? They could contain microscopic versions of invasive species and therefore be responsible for transporting them to every lake where the minnows are used. Even those raised in rearing ponds are potential threats if the rearing ponds become infected.   Unfortunately, it is impractical (not impossible) for a CO to know that my minnows have not been in the lake. He would have to take my word for it. As a result, unless they catch me taking my aerated minnow cooler from my boat to my truck, ....  
    • I see they got Eddie & Cron back last night but now Buxton's out again. It didn't help though as they played a sloppy game & beat themselves.
    • Work related travel.  Never been to the northeast before and wanted to experience it as much as possible so I drove and took a couple extra days.   Original plans had me touring some stuff in the DC area but its been a little more difficult and expensive to wander about than I’d hoped.   Get me to some water!!!
    • Most of the fish I've caught out of the abyss were caught just above the thermocline or high in the water column (1'-15' down). A friend of mine once caught a 31" hog walleye on a top raider over 100'+ of water. That's just one of the many hogs to come into my boat that were 0'-5' under the surface in mega deep water. So, keep your lures above the kill zone on slot lakes and you'll still get bit.
    • To young to be retired whats up with all this Wandering?  Didn't you just come back from Musky fishering? 🤔
    • Walked the Inner Harbor a bit, ate soft shell crab and took in an Oriole’s game at Camden Yards today.  Oh, and finally booked a SHORT trip on Erie to catch on the ride home.  Better than nothing.   White water rafting tomorrow will have to do for my most significant Maryland experience.  This put a little chill on me when I noticed what it was.     It’s a nice place to visit, but... you know the  rest.
    • Tried my hand at making Nashville hot chicken last night. It didn't turn out exactly like I expected but it was still good.  
    • Great fish @Lals!   You sound like we did on the way home from our trip - analyzing every fish we didn’t hook up or keep hooked after they bit.  I didn’t get any joy from a Top Raider either but live chucking them.   Thanks for the report!
    • Just came back from LOTW.  Numbers were down but not bites.  I was a miserable 6 for 15 fish on. 75% of the bites came on the figure 8, I mostly tried to set back into them and they would come "unbuttoned " pretty quickly.  Next year, I will  try pulling them around or if they bite up in the corner of my figure 8, I would then pull the rod straight back trying to set it in the corner of their mouth.   Smaller bucktails got the most bites.  Cranks did pretty well too -- 7" Slammers and Crane Bait.  One friend got a 48 on a Top Raider. I had a 4 -5 large fish follow a top raider or a jackpot but none bit.  My brother got a 50" on a Mepps Musky Marabou.
