    Hey guys I have a Frabill Venture for sell. Used 2 years and in great shape. No tears! They advertise it here http://www.fish307.com/fish/FrabillVenture.htm for 229.00 new and call it a 3 man shanty. I have fished 2 people comfortably with electronics but believe 3 would be too much. I'm selling it because I will be fishing alone alot this year and it is a bear to set up by yourself! I live on Portage Lakes if anyone wants to look at it. Selling it for 100.00. PM me if interested or you have any questions.

  4. WOW! Good price on that shanty Gene. I'm trying to squeeze out as much OT as I can so I can buy that power auger AND a new 2-man shanty.

    Did you decide on a replacement yet???

    Yea Carl.....think I'll go with the Shappell 3000DX. Same weight, same price, more room than the 1 man flip overs and easier to set up than my Frabill. I can fish it alone or with someone. The Frabill is just too hard to set up by myself and the flip overs I don't like the idea of having my feet on the ice. I'm not as tough as you are!

    Gene I use a flip over frabill ultra lite. I love it but your feet will get cold on the ice. To remedy this I sit in the sled sounds wierd but since I am only 5'8" with my boots on I can actually fish sitting upright sitting on my cooler. It also makes for more room for electronics and 3 holes etc.

    Papascott, is the base larger on the ranger solo than the ultra lite? I think I'm still pretty sold on the carpeted Shappell, and being able to let someone fish with me if needed. Looks like it will set up just as easy too. My concern is the durability of the covering of the Shappell.

    There is an easy solution to the feet on the ice. Craig Fletcher and and a couple others showed me. Just a couple simple rubber mats like the car mats you can get. Keeps your feet nice and warm and they dont take up any room in the shanty ;)

    Bigdaddy..... Looking forward to comming up and fishing up at Presque with you guys this year. Gonna take some vacation time. :)
     
  10. Gonna be fun. The ice can't get here soon enough!!!

    Floor mats or a carpet scrap are a GREAT idea for keeping feet off the ice.

    Gene, you'll love the sharpell. That's what I have now. Lots of room for 2 people and if your alone you can set up a cot :D Stes up fast and the carpet floor with the trap doors are real nice too. Get the add on ski's too, make it soooo easy to pull. Carls right, ice can't get here soon enough!! ;)

    What does your shanty being gone have to do with you losing your mind? Two unrelated subjects :D

    See you at Presque!
