5 Luxury Ice Fishing Shacks: Fishing, Or Camping?

NBC News

I don’t know, but does this look like ice fishing to you? 

Recently, this article came out showing off several luxury deer blinds that many felt wasn’t really deer hunting, or rather, deer harvesting. Post after post from social media followers made comments that drove that point home. So, I have to ask, how does everybody feel about luxury ice fishing shacks?

When it comes to ice fishing, these guys take their craft seriously. Knowing where the fish are and how to find them is the name of the game when the water turns frosty. Huddling around a hole while facing the blistering cold is the name of the game for many, but what about those guys with luxury ice fishing shacks? Is that really ice fishing?

Here are five examples. Let us know what you think.

1. Don’t worry! We got TV.

I don’t know about you, but this looks more like camping than fishing.

2. Um, this is a house.

If this guy allows his buddies to fish with him, then he should charge them rent.

3. A card table? Seriously?

Okay. With all this entertainment, when do they actually focus on fishing?

4. Wow. I mean, just, wow.

There’s even mood lighting for this one.

Alright, so what do you think? The deer hunters took it on the chin for use of luxury deer stands, but what about ice fishing guys that hang out in these luxury tiny houses, I mean, ice fishing shacks?

Just imagine next time you are out there drilling holes and searching for fish, they are playing cards and turning up the heat when they feel a draft while sipping on cappuccinos.

Would you fish out of one of these?
