Ok trying to get back into ice fishing after almost 30 years
Heard a lot of good things about these pop up shelters so I'm trying one.
Never fished in ANY kind of shelter before. Anyhow bunch of water gushed when I drilled my holes and I wound up with a couple inches of water on my floor. Howdoyou guys handle that? Wood floor? Just suck it up? I'm leaving it in place a few days so nmaybe it'll firm up. But I'd hate to move several times during a day and have all that water each time.
Nother old newbie question. My shelter is 70x70 floor with puffed out walls. Says it fishes 3 but I'm figuring I'll normally fish 2 maybe a 3rd non fisher. Do you put your holes side by side in the center? Or do you put the holes in a corner and sit back to back? Probably seem like silly questions but fishing in this little shack is a lot different than just being out in the wide open.....didn't have a heater today but I'm told they.can get pretty toasty . Not sloshing around in 2-3" of water though.
One more....I'm guessing you normally drill your holes then put the shelter over them?
