I went out with AK Marine today to Paxson lake to fish for lakers. He had bought a new pop up, which I just bought off of him because he already wants a bigger one. I was wondering if anybody had any tips, advice, or good ideas for a floor. We used a chunk of outdoor carpet, and found out it was a major pain in the rear to get off the ice after a day of running a heater inside the pop up. Can anybody give me some pointers on how to avoid this, or make it easier to get the floor off the ice?
Oh, and I caught my first two lake trout today! I'm definitely hooked now, can't wait to get out and catch (and release) more! What an amazing fish!
