Ice Fishing Houses

Ice fishing houses, shelters and tents are structures that are created to safeguard you in the extreme cold of Minnesota, Michigan and New York frozen winters. Ice fishing is a sport that is beloved by anglers all over the world, and the advances in ice fishing houses and shelters over the last decade is astonishing.

Makers like Frabill, Otter and Clam have created ice shelters and tents that can seat multiple fishermen, have removable windows, several viewing windows with hinged covers, slip-resistant floors, blackout lining and sled housing. Some are covered in camouflage materials, while others are simply black or blue in color. While the styles differ among manufacturers, the quality is consistent throughout the leading makers.

Ice Fishing Houses from Frabill

Frabill is one of the most trusted names in ice fishing houses. Founded in 1938, Frabill is actually the combination of Frank and Bill Matras' names--two of the company's founders. Along with Earl, Michael and Ed Matras, this family affair began in Milwaukee as a collection of distressed and closeout merchandise. By the 1940s and 50s, Frabill had switched focus to fishing gear and never looked back. Today, Frabill remains a leader in the fishing equipment business and makes some of the most popular fish shelters in the world.

At Reeds Family Outdoor Outfitters, you'll find Frabill fish houses in abundance, including the Recon DLX 6112 and the Magnum 6150.
