there is a very similar invention ive seen that has two skis under one end.a person then tows the unit onto the ice and tips the unit up and pulls the two ends apart.the fabric is then between the two ends.very nice job stump!

I don't know about custom manufacturers, but the following (you have likely already thought of) come to mind:

Rubbermaid agricultural stock tank
Kiddy wading pool
Heavy poly stapled in a wood frame you could make to any size you want

Keep us posted . . .

I'm new to the forum and just ran across this post.  I thought I would share a new invention that my wife's uncle created. 


You can drill a hole with one hand.

I would like to know what you all think about it.

I see that it has been done before but i like the design the guy came up with, i mean if you can build it why not.  Sometimes it is fun to just use your own brain and figure things out, rather than opening the wallet and spending.

Mac and billditrite -  I did not take your comments to be negative at all.  I really do appreciate the feedback.

Well I think both these auger holders are ingenious inventions and I would like to have either one but just don't have the bucks to spare but slick they are . ;) Sure would save my back and arms when the ice gets thick and I'm drilling for numerous people many holes .

Didn't mean to ruffle feathers, must have read the post the wrong way.  I will keep my stick on the ice from now on.

Minnow bucket

I took an 18" piece of 5" diameter PVC, put a cap and weight on one end and a screw cap on the other end, drilled a bunch of 1/8th in holes on the top 1/2 and hooked a 3 foot rope to the top, that I tie off to the fish house.  You put your minnows in and drop it down a hole and it keeps them alive a lot longer than any other method I have used.  When you leave the lake, you simply pull it up and drop it into a 5 gallon bucket.

Here are a couple of tips that I have.


Minnow storage:
Take a old pickle jar and punch a bunch of holes in the top.  Then put an eye bolt in the top.  When you auger your holes in the shanty go outside and auger one as close to one of the corner holes as you can.  Take a scrap piece of wood and tie on about 6-8' of light rope and also tie the other end on the pickle jar.  Drop the pickle jar down the hole outside and take a streached out coat hanger and hook the rope from the inside of the shanty.  When you are done fishing for the day pour your minnows into the pickle jar and drop the jar down the hole.  When you come back out to fish you reauger your holes in the shanty and hook the rope with your coat hanger.  No more worries about keeping your minnows alive at home and they are aclimated to the colder water on the lake as well.  When you decide to move your shanty just cut the rope and move.

Inexpensive lighting in a portable:
I own a Eskimo QuickFlip II that comes with the fold down bench.  I went to the local hardware store and bought myself two of those clear interior trailer lights that have the switch in them.  I mounted each light to the under side of my bench with some alum flat stock.  I sat on the bench and marked the spot so that the light would shine between my legs when I sat on the bench.  I then wired them with some 18ga speaker wire.  I bought some large battery clips and I attached them to the end of the wire.  I have enough wire so that I can connect the clips to my trucks battery or for early ice I haul out my battery from my lawn tractor.  The only bad thing is there isn't a lot of light overhead but there is a lot over the holes.  I may buy another light and just attach it to a hook so that I can hang it over head if I wanted to.  Most of the time when I am by myself there is enough light from one light to see everything that I need.  This also works great at night when I am augering the holes or setting up the portable in the dark.  I think I got less than $10 in the whole deal.

I would post a picture but my shanty is still put away for the year.
