The Lodge Fish House: Total Comfort on the Ice

<p>

Until last Saturday, my experiences ice fishing included plenty of frostbite, cold feet and hands, and little more than several layers of&nbsp;<a href=”http://www.carhartt.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/HomeView?storeId=10051&amp;catalogId=10101″ target=”_blank”>Carhartts</a>&nbsp;and a nylon-fabric tent for protection. Late last year one of my buddies from up north won a weekend with&nbsp;<a href=”http://www.ice-shack.com/index.htm” target=”_blank”>Distinct Builders Inc.&rsquo;s Grand Lodge Fish House</a>. Well, he didn&rsquo;t actually win the weekend, he won the silent auction for the weekend. And we got to take advantage of his hospitality in the frozen north last Saturday. All I can say is wow, there&rsquo;s nothing like coming in out of the cold to experience the amenities of home &hellip; complete with indoor ice holes. I will let the photos speak for the&nbsp;<a href=”http://www.ice-shack.com/models.htm” target=”_blank”>Grand Lodge Fish House</a>, because I am still somewhat at a loss for words about the entire luxury experience.</p>

<p>The Lodge line of fish houses are built in Brookings South Dakota, and they take the ice fishing experience to a whole new level.</p>

<p>If you have ever wanted to do some ice fishing, but were afraid of freezing something important, you should give it a try with a Lodge Fish House hooked to the back of your truck.</p>
