Ice-fishing Friday: How to pick the best shelter

Gimme shelter

Time to ditch that old ice hut? Here are the latest options


Enter the more manageable and convenient flip-over shelters, which have transformed the run-and-gun style of ice fishing we know so well today. Everything collapses into a light, tough-as-nails modern sleigh that you can slide with ease into the bed of your truck to get to the lake, then hitch up to the back of your snowmobile or ATV. With a flip-over, you can cruise around a lake and set it up or take it down in seconds. Plus, you get to ice fish in comfort thanks to the built-in padded swivel seats.
