    THE FINER THINGS ON ICE
    FRABILL’S PREMIUM PREDATOR ICE SHELTERS ELEVATE ANGLING COMFORT AND PERFORMANCE

    Plano, IL (September 24, 2015) – Ice anglers are a tough crew. Give them enough propane, bait and beef jerky and they may never come home. But that doesn’t mean they don’t appreciate the finer things in life. To such piscatorial nomads, the “finer things” include a rugged and long-lasting ice fishing shelter with a few more inches of headroom, more room to set the hook, comfier seats… You get the idea.

    Frabill’s intelligent SideStep design affords more total fishable space and easier entry and exit

    Enter the angler-centric engineers from Frabill, principal purveyors of such ice angling luxuries.
    “The all-new Predator series of ice shelters combines Frabill’s hallmark durability and mobility with the ice equivalent of five-star luxury,” says Frabill Brand Manager, Ryan Olander. “Whether you choose an insulated or non-insulated model, traditional front entry or Frabill’s innovative SideStep™ entry, these big Predators provide more fishable space than other similar-sized shelters,” he explains.

    Step inside a Predator and the difference is clear. There’s more room to fish, more room to move, and the lack of a sloped front wall on Predator SideStep models means you won’t need to worry about melting it with your heater.

    “I’m a guy who definitely appreciates more room,” says Frabill pro, National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Fame angler and Door County, Wisconsin fishing guide, Dale Stroschein, who marks his bedroom wall at 6’-5” tall, and is hopefully done growing. “The headroom in the new Predators is fantastic, but the extra fishing space afforded by the vertical front wall is what’s truly remarkable,” he added. “Whether setting the hook with a longer walleye rod or standing up to take off your jacket, you’ll wonder why nobody thought of this before.”

    The Predator’s Modular Seating System (MSS) includes two Frabill Boat Seats with room for a third

    Innovative architectural form aside, each of the four available Predator models comes with a pair of oversized and thickly padded boat-style seats. A third can be added to fish three comfortably when company drops by. Window openings are strategically shaped and placed to maximize visibility, while a heavy-duty aluminum frame and rugged roto-molded base combine to support years of worry-free service.

    Predator Ice Shelters are available in fully insulated or non-insulated models, in either front-entry or SideStep entry configurations.
