That's absurd, of course you can.

Put an anchor in the ice, tie it to one of the guy out points, pop up the shelter.

I think I've always had wind setting mine up (Lake Simcoe). The first time a gust of wind almost took it away. Ever since it gets tied off before I pop it up...

Perhaps my memory is really bad, lol. I'm usually taking my Clam out (flip over). The older I get the less I want to fish Simcoe (wind, weather, crowds etc)

Not to mention Family Day weekend for ice fishing is the perfect family outing. Been doing it for the past 2 years and the kids love it!

It's a blast. Holes right in the floor of the hut for fishing while laying in a bunk drinking beer. Perfect for that early morning and late night bite. We usually spend the day outside on the ice.

Huts come with a propane furnace, propane cook top and an outhouse. It's the winter version of camping. Highly recommend trying it.
Where do you usually go? Where are you renting the hut (company)?
Curious as we've been doing ice fishing as a family for two years now and hope to find another nice place to enjoy this Family Day weekend

Dang this is tempting, but I've been spending a lot of money lately, just booked family trip to Japan. I'd use this at the cottage, but this year the ice isn't safe. Someone talk me out of getting it lol

For those who may think going with young kids would not be fun. From my experience it's ultra fun. They don't really get impatient and whine. In fact they are very patient and get excited when they see the fish through the hole. Once they feel a tug, they'll alert you and you just help them out. The rest of the day they're pretty much excited and either want to catch more or they'll just keep an eye on the fish they caught.

This is likely pretty conservative actually. I remember in my younger days parking the 5+ trucks in a circle on Rice Lake with the lights on to see and having a big fire in the middle.

That lake rarely gets over 12" of ice.

True enough. I bought my popup the year we had good ice on Simcoe in late December (2016?). I don't think we've had a good season since, and this year is not looking good...

It's definitely been a few years since there has been really good ice on Simcoe. This year isn't looking good either. Although that just means I'll be out on Gbay chasing open water lakers that much sooner.

This thing is probably thin like paper which means more heating required to keep warm inside. These huts are like homes, better quality = better heat retention. The whole point of using a hut is creature comfort.
