Does anybody have experience with this line of fish houses/toy haulers? I am curious as to your likes/dislikes as I am looking at purchasing either an 8x16 or an 8x18 and use it as a year round toy-hauler.

Thanks for any info, I jut want to make the correct decision on a $20k purchase

Posted this same ? earlier this year on I believe the ice fishing forum. Got the same response. I did talk to a couple owners out on the ice but both were last years models. One had the 16 and the other the 18. Both knew each other and the owner of the 18 was much happier with the way the tandem axle towed. I have looked at a few display models and am convinced it is the best shack on the market. Waiting for future hydraulic model to hit the market and will be placing an order for a 20.

Have seen a few of the larger models being towed with the wheels chained in the down position and busted winch cables. Guessing they dropped one side all the way down with the other all the way up.

Thanks for the feedback, I will definetly go with atleast the 18 footer for the tandem axle, I'll have to look into the 20 foot option.

      Was on Skogman last night. Could not get anything of size to bite. 3 " sunnies and 6" crappies this time. The vex was lit up most of the time with lookers.  Last year did Ok with bigger crappies and sunnies. Middle of the week - not to much activity - nice weather- was hoping for better results. Oh well - that's fishing. Good Luck

      You're running up against a political position here, not a logical one. I'm struggling to remember if it was Pawlenty or Ventura but one of them started to swing things heavily towards "fees" because they could argue that they weren't new taxes. I think that mentality has permeated through many layers of government by now, so I'm not surprised to hear someone from the DNR state that fishing license fees aren't taxes.   It doesn't really matter, we are paying to use something that requires money to stock and manage. Whatever it's called, it will never be free unless fishing pressure drastically decreases.

      Spent a few hours on Skogman yesterday. (3:00 to 6:30)  Most of the time the vexlar was so lit up that you couldn't see the lure. Bad news is that they were very small sunnies and crappies. Fished in the area of the cluster of ice houses in  24  ft water. No fish kept this time out. Good ice but getting a little sloppy.

      Another Spring-like day on Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy landed a couple of nice ones. C & R.

      Very true! Cenaiko Lake had at least 100 houses on it at 7 in the morning on Saturday and it is only a 28 acres. It is absolutely packed with fish though.
