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.
