Anyone who has ever gone ice fishing or wants to try it knows how important it is to have a solid shelter or ice tent while out on the ice. Whether you need a temporary or permanent shelter, an ice fishing shanty is a vital part of staying comfortable and safe while fishing. What do you need to know about ice fishing shanties and how do you set them up?
First, it’s important to understand the value of your ice fishing shelter and why they are not only there to keep you warm, but to also improve the fishing. Due to changing ice conditions, wind, and weather conditions on the frozen lake, as an ice fisherman, you need to be alert. If you are distracted by the cold or because you’re in an open space, it’s going to make your experience less successful.
