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.

      @Rick - think this should be moved to South Central?  For now, I will post a link to this one.

      1/8 oz Lindy Frostee Spoons in glow red are a killer choice too, sometimes you won't need bait and sometimes you will. When they are preferring bait I'll throw on a few waxies, a minnow head, or a whole minnow.

      Haven't heard anything about Andrusia, haven't really seen anybody out there lately.

      Resorts moving around to stay on walleyes. Warm weather and a lot of fish.  Most catching in 29-31 ft with glow red, chartreuse, pink and gold with a rattle on jigging spoons tipped with minnow head or tail.  Dead stick plain hook and live minnow or smaller jigs.  Walleye and sauger mix with a jumbo perch, eelpout and sturgeon as well. Electronics improving catch rate as fish are following jigs 4-5 feet off bottom to strike.  20"+ of ice on the lake in most areas along with only 3-6" of snow.  Ice roads allowing full sized vehicles.
      The Rainy River has had a great morning and evening bite but lots of slush on the ice right now. Know the river or use a resort or guide for safety.   The snowmobile trail is staked from Wheeler's Point to Baudette on the river.  Do not deviate from trail unless you are familiar with ice conditions.   Great fishing continues up at the NW Angle.  20+ inches of ice on ice roads traveled by resorts in good shape.  Resorts are fishing in 21-29 feet of water with a nice walleye, sauger, and perch bite. Best colors include glow red, silver, pink, green and gold.  Slab crappies in good numbers being caught in Ontario in 28-34'.  Crappies caught in 25' or greater have high mortality rate, thus keep up to limit and move on to another species.  Work through resorts and stay on ice road.
