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.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
