Building an Ice Fishing Shed Demands Durability

Ice fishing has long been one of the most popular winter pastimes in Canada and the northern U.S. All you need is access to a solidly frozen lake because a flowing river doesn’t freeze thick enough. Ice fishers typically sit in simple enclosures that protect them from the elements. These go by interchangeable names like ice shack, ice shanty, fish house or ice-fishing shed. Some enthusiasts are taking things up a notch by building deluxe sheds featuring dining areas, office space and even electricity for TVs and microwaves.
