Frabill Ice Hunter SideStep 200

Description and Application: Battle the worst Mother Nature has to offer, and win, with the Ice Hunter SideStep 200. This flip-over ice shelter features Frabill's patented SideStep entry system for easy, convenient interior access. Two anglers fit comfortably inside, protected from harsh winter winds thanks to a full welded insulation. Land fish from the two plush boat seats while keeping an eye on outside conditions through the panoramic front window.

Staff Perspective:There’s no doubt that drilling holes through the ice is a game for only the most dedicated anglers, but it really is an enjoyable way to pass the winter months where the local lakes turn solid. But your gear has to be as tough as you are. From my personal experience with Frabill ice gear, it’ll stand up to the abuse any ice fanatic can dish out. I love the side access to this house making it easy to move or get out to chase a flag.—TA

Cost:$799.99
