Camoman, well late jan is good fishing. So is march. If the weather is cold and windy I would want to be in a hard house. If the weather is warm I would rather be in a portable for mobility. So theres no magic answer here. I would go with a rental house to base out of and bring portables to scout for fish "if" the weather is decent.

Good Luck!

A lot of the people use my sleepers as a base and fish out of their portables. I think that URL fish often bite far better in a portable or standing outside in the open then they do under a hard house. The most extreme time was 5 people taking turns one at a time in 1 portable 30 feet from the hard house while the other 4 would fish in the hard house. They were limited before the sun went down. The 4 people fishing in the hard house caught a total of 3 crappies, all of the rest came from the portable. The next day we moved the hard house the 30 feet to where the portable had been. New group but the same story except that then the crappies not only bit another 30 feet from the hard house but also where the hard house had been! Very few under the hard house. "Lowe" was with 3 years ago when we moved my old "white house" 10 feet to where they were biting. Then we sat in the house and watched out the windows as the people fishing 10 feet away where the house had been nailed them while we caught almost nothing under the house. Fishing with my Grandpa way too many years ago, wink.gif he would only come into the hard house to warm his fingers or check on me. He always fished out in the open 20 to 40 feet away from the hard house
