It's a guy in Saskatchewan that built it. Pretty cool. The bathroom is right outside the door. And I'm sure there's a 5 gallon bucket around somewhere. :lol: And yeah... we've caught fish bigger than the hole. You have to let the fish back down, keep the line to the far side of the hole and quickly drill two more holes close to the existing one to make 1 BIG hole. Next trip out, bring a bigger auger. Mind you, you can squeeze a 20 pound Pike through an 8" hole if you grab it good enough.
Small timer. Around here in Southern Canada/aka Minnesota I know guys that have $20,000 easy into ice houses. Thats just material with their own labor. They use them as cabins at the resorts in the summer because the only way to get lake property anymore is from family.
