otter lodge questions

Recommended Posts

Wondering if anyone out there has any plans or ideas on some type of set-up to make a bed in an otter ice house. I have the magnum lodge and currrently use two of the swivel style bucket seats. I have looked at the bench seat....but I dont know if that would be enough room to actually lay down on and catch some z's. Im thinking there must be a way to modify with plywood or something? any suggestions would be appreciated. Iceman out>

I have the otter lodge with the bench seat, it is comfortable, but not big enough to sleep on. although i don't believe i have tried sleeping on it because i usually try to do as much fishing as possible in my portable... i sleep in the truck or in a permanant

I'm sure there is some kind of way you could put together an area for sleeping. Maybe some sort of collapsible bench? Or you could always bring a sleeping bag along and crash right in the sled smile.gif

Good Fishin,

If I could only count how many times I've slept in my Lodge. grin.gif I've never slept in a portable house until I owned this one....I think it's a sign I am fishing that much more in comfort!!

My friend has the bench seat and I think it would definitely flip the bill for a good nap.

Cot??? Bench???

I have spent more than a few nights sleeping in the bottom of the sled. Just bring an old sleeping bag to put under you....and make sure that you don't spill the minnow bucket in the bottom of the sled grin.gif That can cause a little discomfort.

    • I had this exact model for many years and it even ran for several years after my wife ran straight gas in it and seized it up one day when I wasn't home. After it cooled down and I replaced the gas in the tank with mixed fuel, it started right up but always had a knock after that.
    • I came through Pennsylvania to get here at least and there isn’t a Maryland forum so here goes:   I have a couple extra days later this week and a car to go wherever.  I’ve been looking for a guide or charter to get on the water but am having more trouble than expected.  The Chesapeake Bay charters for stripers run up to 6 in a group but don’t mix groups so jumping on an unfilled boat doesn’t seem to be an option. I’ve been working with one captain willing to try but no dice yet.  I could have the whole boat to myself for $600 I suppose...   So anyway, is there anyone who has a suggestion, contact, or even a boat in the Maryland area for ANY kind of fishing?  Honestly I’m pretty open but would prefer something coastal.  Have car, will travel.   I talked to a guy with a sweet jet boat at The Point of Rocks on the Potomac yesterday but he doesn’t guide.  But that could be an option too.  Might head to Niagara Falls after I’m done in Baltimore so NY state so there’s another one.   Yep, this is an official Wanderabout.
    • Tonight I caught crappie, bass, big bluegills, rock bass, pike and a snapping turtle.... All after 11pm!  Try it sometime, tiny black jigs for big nocturnal bluegills. Loud Black topwaters for Pike n bass. Bring extra flashlight batteries and bug spray, lots of bug spray!!!
    • Those old 2 strokes just keep running forever.
    • I will take it where are you located ? Will be gone next week fishing be back week of 22nd. I am using a 80's model lawnboy push for trimming be nice to have a backup newer model.
    • I have caught fish on the slide diver but I don’t notice  any difference from the regular Dipsey diver and they are a pain in the one-just-like-silly-me to set up. I have Dipsy’s in all kinds of different colors and I can’t tell if that makes a difference either. I have one that actually will glow in the dark    
    • Well that is some great news!  Thanks for the tip, we are going to check that out.  
    • True Dat And they got carp for gas mileage.   And rusted out in only a few years.
    • Try dipping a line in the Kasilof if the Kenai doesn’t treat you right.
