Bought a fragile aegis, at the end of 2015, used it last year and this year, my Windows are starting to crack and I am starting to see light in spots through the fabric of the shelter, anyone have similar problems, how is their customer service, and at the end of ice season I have taken the fabric off the sled and stored it indoors

You are not going to get much help IMHO. It's fairly typical if you are putting them to much use.

Still beats barebacking it on a 5 gallon bucket. Did that for many years. In some nasty weather.

Mine is 12 years old and I can see light through lots of places. It still keeps the wind off of you and the heater warms it up nicely.

I'd only recommend a hub if your fishing out of a truck and don't move much. It's not uncommon for me to move a half dozen or more times a day if I'm not on the fish. And sometimes it will be a 10 mile plus move where the roads aren't plowed. I'd recommend a flip over to the hard core user running with snowmobiles or ATVs.



This location is about 12 miles from the nearest landing, well a landing in the US. No roads plowed there, dont let the lack of snow fool anyone, it was late March.

Nope nevah

All you do is drill a hole with your auger...clean out the hole of slush...set up your chair....and put a smelt on you hook...and lower it down the hole ...you can use a jig stick (as pictured) or a small short 18 inch spinning rod...Drink Beeah and wait for a bite...on the nasty days we go inside the warm shack,heated with a buddy heater and a Radio ,for some music...very relaxing .

I have a Frabill Predator that's 11 years old. I called customer service and was able to get a new canvast but it was $400. Expensive but cheaper than a new shack.

I used to watch guys flounder fishing in an open 16' rental boat, in March, 38 degrees, blowing white caps over the bow.
Is ice fishing more fun then that? grin
