Ice fishing is not like any other kind of fishing, I can promise you that. You know how when you do tequila the right way there is a big ceremony to it? The salt, the shot, the lime, scrunching up your face afterward, there is a process to it that in turn makes the experience more fun. No one drinks tequilas because it tastes good, it is just fun to pound shots with friends. I feel that ice fishing is like that, the ceremony makes it more fun than it should be, and doing it with friends is the only way to do it. Getting people out of their homes and away from their heaters and out onto a frozen lake is tough to do. That is why I invested a couple hundred bucks in an awesome portable heater that should answer everyone’s problems in one fell swoop. This heater runs on a rechargeable battery, which allegedly can hold a charge and keep the thing heating for up to six hours. I bought a second battery for the heater, so in theory I have got a 12 hour power supply with me. This heater sits up on a tripod, with three legs two feet tall each that anchor into the ice. The heating is directional and aimed outward, so it does not affect the ice at the base, or under your feet. Once I get the hole drilled, the ice shack set up, and the heater running, it should be toasty warm in there all night long, perfect for ice fishing and beer drinking.
