What is the typical size????

3 posts in this topic

I've got an eskimo lodge ice shelter that I have been using for ice fishing for the last two years, The Canvas is dark green and the windows have strips of canvas that velcro over them. So it seems to keep fairly dark in the hut. My question is how large of a hole should a guy typically use for ice fishing. I'm thinking that I could use this eskimo lodge for both my spear house and Ice fishing house. But not sure if the hole flip ups on the floor would be large enough for a spearing hole.I think it 13.5 in wide by 30 in long, any opinions on the topic?

I suppose my average hole is 24-30" x 3-4'.

13 1/2" maybe a little on the small side...

Good Luck!

When i cut my hole, i cut it 4 down and 5 across with my auger. So i have a monster hole in my mankato. This allows me to be able to cover alot more water, and to be able to throw the spear at a better angle. All and all, there is nothing better then closing the door and knowing you have open water all around you.

Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.
