Eskimo Pop Up

9 posts in this topic

I have seen quite a few of the Eskimo Pop ups on the ice this year. I was thinking it would be a nice thing to have. Does anyone have one and if so, please post how you like it. Please include how easy to set up, take down, and secure to the ice with the screws. Thanks.

I have one and it's great. Screws are easy to get into the ice and out. Set up and tear down is very easy. There is a thread in the equipment and expert information section on these. Everybody seems pretty happy with them.

I moved it up to the first page in that forum.

I have a quickfish 3 and I love it.......set up and take down are very easy and it goes into a long backpack for easy carrying. It comes with ice anchors which you just put through the strap hole in each corner and screw into the ice. Overall it's a great portable house if you don't mind not having a floor.

hello all, i'm new here and just thought i would give my 2 cents on this here fish house. I have one and definately for the money its worth it, lots of room inside, it can fit 2 people plus sunflower with full size propane tank and lawn chairs decently. The downfall is the door kind of a pain. I haven't used the stakes yet that come with it i just bring a shovel and push a bunch of snow up on the sides and your good to go. However might need them stakes when its windy.

I second the "love it" comment. For the money, I think it's the best thing out there.

PICKED IT UP LAST NIGHT FROM FF. AMAZINGLY EASY AND FAST TO SET UP AND TAKE DOWN,(IN THE LIVING ROOM). HOPEFULLY THE SCREWS GO IN EASY. IF THAT IS THE CASE, IT WILL BE THE BEST $160 THAT I HAVE SPENT IN AWHILE. WILL FIND OUT TOMORROW.

THANKS FOR ALL OF THE ADVICE, I THINK I WILL BE VERY HAPPY WITH THIS PIECE OF EQUIPMENT.

I'm going on my second year with mine, and I love it. I also only use the ice screws when its windy, and then only on the corners and guy-out points on the upwind side. A medium otter sled fits perfectly inside one of these too. I built a bench on the sled and use it to haul all of my gear too. This makes it a lot easier to move to a new spot once you are all set up.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
