Question regarding the "Attack Shack".....

4 posts in this topic

Last ice-fishing show Banks Outdoors had a plastic mold ice-fishing/hunting shelter that had windows and a hitch. I am interested in getting one, but I would like to hear any thoughts, positive or negative, about the house (The "Attack Shack"). I've never seen one on the ice, which is a concern of mine. The other down fall is that the "ice hole" is down a tube, so you cannot see your boober from a clear angle. I hope there are a few people that know what I am talking about.

I can't help you as I have not seen or used one. But it does look pretty cool. I'd like to have something to keep the wind out and be lightweight to move out onto the ice. I've never been a fan of driving the p/u out on the ice. Pretty versatile as you can load it in the pickup bed or tow it with an ATV/Snowmobile. Nice find!

If I saw a few on the ice, I would just buy one. It makes me nervous someone knows something I don't?? I really thought I would have received a few replys by now.

I don't know how long these have been out, maybe they were brand new? You can always be the first and give your review come hard water time wink.gif

Maybe post your question on the ice fishing forum as well? I would want to know about the build quality and overall weight prior to getting serious. To get around the bobber/sleeve issue, could you drop an underwater camera down the opposite hole?

Oops, looks like you already posted in ice forum.

      Best thing you can do if you won't be around is to put the house on fresh ice, don't drill any holes, and put it on blocks.  When people get into trouble is if it gets windy and they have open holes under the house, that rain starts blowing around on top of the ice, and starts swirling down into the holes under the house....that swirling water EATS ice, and can sink a house pretty quick.     As as far as the ice on the lakes, if you have 14-15 inches of good ice like most places around, you'll have no worries if you do what is posted above.

      Rented a sleeper out on Garrison Bay Sunday night with some friends. Fishing was slow but we managed a few walleyes. Best went 23" on the rattle reel. Was a lot of fun though, wish the bite could have been better. How is everyone else doing out there? Any good bites or has it pretty much slowed down for everyone.     Here is a video of the trip:

      I remember someone way back in the HSO/Fishingminnesota days caught this super huge walleye at night out on Cass. Some fish or tales of fish just stick with you, that was one of them. I've been thinking on which body of water I can hit around here after work for night bite. Cass crossed my mind today so I might give that a whirl sometime this week while we have this killer warm spell.  Keep in touch on here man, maybe we can dial them in.
