Eastman ice cube vs Pack shack

5 posts in this topic

Which would be the better deal? Has anyone used either of these? ? ease of set up, portability, and sturdiness-durability?

I have a Pak Shak, and love the thing.. .I use it when I know I will be moving a ton... as far as set up goes.. Done... there is no set up, pull it over your head! The Seat is confy, light weight, and dark enought to sight fish out of...

I have never used the product by Eastman, so, hence I dont have an opinion on it.

Thanks. I guess I mainly need info on the Ice Cube. It would be nice to have more space if I had a buddy with. The pack shack I would use all the time though. Either one would be better than none at all. That is my current situation.

I just picked up an Ice Cube off a SAm's Club auction. I have set it up once. It took a little to figure out but once I figured out that I needed to "pop" the supports out more it went up fast. Take down was quick too. The case it comes in had shoulder straps and it seems easy to carry.

It seems roomy enough for two maybe three. I plan on using it with my other house so the whole family can be happy.

Hope this helps.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
