Wow that's a oldie. Sure its a otter has the otter seat for sure.  I"ve seen some old ones and never this kind from the otters we are all accustomed to. .I have seen black canvas insulated  from another companie that had this style with the same otter name.  I think they were from the Milaca area not for sure the canvas was black on those. They look similar. Its in good shape from the looks of it. I just sold one of my  clam pro's  for $75.00 probably a little cheap but a Dad was buying for his young kid to start ice fishing so I lowered my price and took a loss.  The smile on the kids face when I told the dad if it gets him fishing ill lower the price  was  totally worth the loss. 😁 I would guess in todays market maybe $100-150 they are dang expensive new foe sure. Why don't you buy it from him? You wanted to start fishing eyes more? That's the perfect setup,  plenty roomy to jig and setup a deadstick. hook up some rope lights game on.

Nice job buddy. That's what this game of life we play everyday is all about. 

 

Mr eyeguy, I think that's an old Walrus house. Made prior to the newer Otter houses.

Thx Chris. Won’t be for me cuz too heavy for me to play with. Otter is on the window. He made the seats. I will just use mine when I do go after an eye. Head lamp. As I age the lighter the better. 😁

From the design of the fabric and the poles it looks like my old Canvascraft house except mine was black. They used a lot of Otter parts in them, but used a special fabric I believe was call NorpacR2. Really warm house, but heavy.

      You sure this is from Red Lake in MN?  There’s a Red Lake in Canada that’s a commercial fishery.  Often confused with MN.
    • leech~~
      I agree. A few years ago I got a Hummer Ice 55. I went up to Red lake for a 3 day 2 night trip.  I brought my FL-18 along as a back up. When I was fishing I said, what the heck and ran one in each hole started at the same time with both batteries charged to full at the start of the trip. The Bird-55 died in a day and a half and the FL-18 ran until I shut it off to leave on the 3rd day. I sold the Hummer Ice-55 later that winter.

      Very low power draw i am told on the fl18
    • CJH
      Wouldn't be surprised if the Vex gauge doesn't read the battery correctly, since lithiums have a flatter/higher voltage curve and those meters read the voltage, if my memory serves me right.   Or the Vex just has such low power draw its barely making a dent in it.  🙂

      Lot's of really good reading and points in the above.  Hope they have learned some lessons from the past and the Greed doesn't come back again!  It's always Man's Greed that makes them fail! 😕   "Commercial fishing grew from 200 Indian netters  in the 1960s to a peak of 600 in the 1980s,  with some individuals setting 80 nets, Bedeau  said. With large bonuses from the association, some of them made $80,000 per season, he said. "It was greed," Dickenson said. "The culture  got lost."   "In 1989, the tribe's commercial netters  registered a record 948,000 pounds of walleye."   And this years quota was just about back to that of 820,000.  So did they learn anything? 🤔

      If we could all just follow the same rules, this wouldn't be a discussion. The law shouldn't discriminate.

      I think what he was referring to is that you should care before things go bad, not after.
