There are two main types of portable ice shelters.......a "Flip-Over" and a "Hub" style. Dakota Prairie Angling utilizes both types as both have their time and place depending on clients and type of fish that are being targeted. The "Hub" style shelter can be very useful and beneficial if it fits your fishing style. We use it in guiding clients for a number of reasons that include......
1. When looking for maximum room, this is as close as it gets to a permanent shack. Hub style shelters have the most room of all portables. These shelters allow drilling of holes in any configuration and number needed. They are great when fishing with a large group or kids as it allows fishermen to spread out and move around. Doors on either end allow easy and safe access.
2. Hub shelters can be put up and taken down with in minutes with its quick set frame. They are easily stored in a carrying bag and come with an anchoring kit so using them in the wind is no problem. Once anchored, they are solid enough to be used in the worst of South Dakota winds.
3. Dakota Prairie Angling's #1 goal is to keep you on the fish! Remaining mobile while chasing roaming schools of perch and walleyes is crucial. This hub shelter keeps mobility an option and allows us to easily move a group of anglers when needed.
4. The Headquarters Hub Shelter is easily heated even with the smallest of heaters. It retains heat and it's black color collects a lot of heat on sunny days contributing to comfortable fishing.
5. Frabill Hubs are economically priced allowing them to fit in to many budgets.

Whether hitting the ice or open water, protection from the elements is always a concern and often protective clothing and sunscreen are the two first things that come to mind. Eye Protection is sometimes not a major concern but over time, ultraviolet (UV) light can cause permanent loss of vision by damaging the retina. Wearing POLARIZED sunglasses while fishing year round will prevent this damage.
I have wore many brands and style of polarized sunglasses over the years both ice-fishing and while on open water. A couple of years ago, I started wearing GUIDELINE EYEGEAR (http://www.glpolarized.com/GEW/index.html) polarized eyeglasses and they remain my favorite for a few different reasons.
1. Guideline Eyegear glasses are 100% polarized and they offer the best protection possible. Wearing them, you know your eyes are protected and damage will be prevented.
2. We have all wore glasses that after a couple of hours either your nose, ears or other parts of your face are sore. After wearing these glasses for long periods of time, my face feels the same as if I just put them on. In fact, I get so used to wearing them that I often forget I have them on.
3. Fishing can be a BUSY activity with a lot of equipment! I rely on good quality products and Guideline Eyegear has never disappointed me. The glasses are durable, tough and made of quality materials unlike others. Beyond that, they are affordable unlike many others.
4. Finally, Guideline Eyegear polarized sunglasses look great! We all want to wear glasses that look good and Guideline has a full line of different style and colors. I have a few different pairs, so I can change up what I wear.
Here at Dakota Prairie Angling, protection from the elements is very important in making fishing more comfortable and ensuring that we protect our bodies from unwanted harm. We wear GUIDELINE EYEGEAR Polarized sunglasses because they are affordable, stylish, tough and protective! Remember do not to take your "Eye Protection" for granted and give GUIDELINE EYEGEAR POLARIZED SUNGLASSES a try!
