I have an Otter Lodge and only use 2 holes.If you drill more than that you limit yourself on room for your heater, vexilar, bait and beer and only small spot to walk to go outside. Also I would think if you cought a fish and had 4 lines that close together you would have a big tangled mess

We also have the Otter lodge. We usually only go with two holes for two people. Sometimes we will do three holes but not in a straight line. We will do one hole on each end of the sled and if we want the third we will put it between the two but out a bit, kind of like a V shape. That way the person(s) in the sled have a nice big spot to step on the ice when getting out instead of trying to jump over the holes or make sure your foot is secure between them if they were in a straight line. The heater generally goes in one corner and faces the opposite corner of the fish house. You could probably do four holes but I think it would be tight. Have fun fishing.

Yoiu could drill 4 holes, but would be quite crowded, drill 3, the middle hole being for the t ransducer, no hangups with your cord as you are bringing up fish, when the fish are biting you can not handle multiple lines effeciently anyway

That may be a bit tight especially in deeper water, your going to tangle up more then it will be worth.

I would set a tip-up wide left and right of the shack with a HT jingle bell rig on the flag if you need the extra lines in. You will hear it pop from inside the portable with no worries.

Spreading out your coverage also helps to target active fish.

Thanks folks,

I am going to try 3 holes - one for me and two for my son so he has a better chance of some action. I bought one of those clip-on rattle wheels and am planning hanging it from the frame on the right side of the door (my little buddies side) and then putting the heater to the other side of the door.

Thanks a lot for saving me some time with trial and error.

Leaves me more time to FISH grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

      Good Morning everyone, The family and myself will be in Mankato July 27-29 for the MSF baseball tournament(U11).  It appears we may have down time Sat. Was wondering if  anyone could point me in the right direction to a shorefishing area I could take the family?   First time to Mankato, so no real idea where to look. Thank you.

      I hadn't hit the river in >1 month, but last night went Fishing below the SCSU dam in St. Cloud last evening and the river conditions are really quite good for July.  Water height is at a good level and the past week of dryness has improved water clarity. (...that may change today with possible rain all day in forecast) Probably the hottest bite I've ever had in the river--Pretty much everything was biting on nightcrawlers!  (there were 10 different species pulled out in <2 hours!)  Fun Evening!

      I assume you mean the 110 size one.  I have all three, the 90, 110, and 130 in different colors.  I have never had great luck using them however.  They are a well made lure and they have good plopping action, I just can't get very many bites on them.

      It came down pretty quick the past couple days after they got like 8 inches of rain at the headwaters last week.

      I purchased The newer smaller size Whopper Plopper, what a kool surface plug.  I can give it to most any client fishing and they can catch great fish. I had  a family of four on a guide trip, (Dad, Mom,  son10 and daughter 6 yrs old.) What a blast, was going to be dad and the kids, I told mom to come with to enjoy time . We spent an hour plus catching many sunfish and rockbass, the kids having a great time cranking fish from 16 feet of water.  I said "Lets look for bigger fish."  A quick bit of instruction with mom on how to set the hook, She began catching Bass after Bass, (I had only used the lure myself once for 10 minutes and caught 3 bass.) The Mrs, caught her personal best bass, of 19 inches.  Going out to get several more, for as sure as Gods make apples and bees, I know this bait sooner or later going trigger either a large pike or musky if on the of those lakes.  They may cost a bit more, but I my conservative approach to buying lures.  Money well spent.  I got the loon.
