How can you tell 4 days ahead of time that the hole you find in the ice will be 8 inches? Have you already reserved your hole?

Yati, I've fished alot of places and for alot of different beasts of the deep. I have never ice fished in one of those "shirtsleevewarm" houses on a big frozen lake.
I want to.
Does yours have the sat TV, nice stove, refer and a place to put up your feet and take a nap if needed?
Deer chile with some diced onions, sharp chedder and maybe some cornbread with melted butter from the fish house oven?
I'm only half kidding......
(701: you wouldn't be safe out there. You'd be surprised how easily you'd fit through an 8" hole, and how quickly it would freeze closed..)

If the tv gets the Vikings Packers game, I'm in with Buyside YATI. I will even bring my own walleye pole and one for Buyside.

I have walleye gear and all the tackle we'd need. All you need is a good worm or leach. (real leach not MTB)

TVR: What is the difference between a walleye pole and a regular pole?
Have caught everything from Walleye to catfish with one pole.

Yati hasn't said if we're in the deluxe suite. If so then my little 24" spinner would be good.

Alot of people have the portable, easy to set up houses just to get out of the wind and cold.
If you live near a lake or on a lake that has alot of fish in it, then you go for the mini cabin on a frozen lake style of fish house.
I think Yatis brother lives on Ottertail so there is a good chance its a stick built fish house.
I just drove by Leech lake here yesterday and it looked like a small village in Italy where these houses are set up. I suggest you do a weekend and try it in one of those houses. The best part if you can fish all night with rattle wheels while you sleep. If a fish bites, you will know it.
Ive seen houses with SAT TV, a kitchen, living room, the whole 9 yards. If I had my lake place on a bigger lake where I could move it more, I would probably invest in one and have Yati up for a weekend. Its alot of fun.

No real fancy ice shacks. The more crap in them the fewer holes you bout in the floor. About all any of them have in them is heat, a small table and a cupboard. Istened the the Vikes radia at the peak of Sundays Walleye bite. A 24 inch pole works fine. A minnow head on a Buckshot rattling spoon worked as well as a shiner minnow on a tip up. For those of you who don't know, a tip up is a just a line hanging in the water from a device that has a small flag on it. Fish grabs bait, Flag goes up Fisherman runs over and grabs the line. You have to hand pull those in.
We did well. About a dozen walleye both days.
