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 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.

      I've fished the hex hatch many times. In wisconsin.The hexs are out at my lakevplace in grand rapids Mn.  its usually a little later on the river. So this weekend into next week and the following week ought to be good. Late in the evening.. like  9:30 on...  I haven't been to the straight for years... I wish you'd let me know how it goes...

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)
