April 21, 2006, Newsletter Issue #12: Portable canopy: Ice fishing is more pleasant with a portable canopy

Tip of the Week

There is a difference between a fishing shelter and an ice-fishing 'house'. The shelter is meant to be moved and is classified as a "portable canopy" or "portable shelter". The key benefits of any ice fishing shelter is simply two things:

Shelter from the wind

Keep heat inside

There are several styles such as:

Flip-over style


ATV mounted


You can build your own but purchasing one from a manufacturer will make your life a little easier. You can find them from different dealers.

A small portable canopy will work very well for your ice fishing. Most any of the small, pop-up canopies would be perfect as long as you get the walls that can be purchased as an accessory to keep the wind off you.
