One thought on “EPISODE 262 ICE SHACKS

  1. I think that people should understand that being out on the middle of the ice while fishing is cold. If the wind is bad enough, you probably can’t be out there for more than 1-2 hours – which is why you need some sort of ice shelter.

    Also, if you insulate yourself from the floor with only small holes, when the ice hut starts to warm up, you won’t be creating a steam bath.
