Designing the PERFECT Spearing and Sight-Fishing Dark House: Ice Runner Stalker

Posted by Ice Runner Houses on Nov 14th 2019

Spearing and sight fishing is unlike traditional ice fishing. 100% black-out of the walls, ceiling AND ice is required. You asked; Ice Runner listened. The Ice Runner Stalker has ALL the features you need in a spearing and sight-fishing house.

Ice Runner Stalker Spearing and Sight Fishing Dark House

The Ice Runner Stalker portable shelter opens an entirely new dimension. Spearing and sight fishing is unlike ice fishing where you want large windows and skylights – or add a lantern for more light. When spearing and sight-fishing you need a totally black cover over the hole. The walls, ceiling, and floor must be BLACK, both to increase visibility of fish below the ice and to hide the movements of the angler.

The Ice Runner Stalker is the ONLY portable shelter constructed with black, 600 denier insulated double-wall fabric and a full floor to create a 100% “dark house.” The bottom outside edge has a wide skirt for banking with snow to block out light and seal in heat. The absolute darkness gives spearers and sight fishermen the advantage of seeing more clearly into the water while preventing the fish from being alerted to the angler above.

The Ice Runner Stalker is a unique design – not a sled house and not a hub shelter. Instead, the Stalker uses a new, exterior framework for quick set-up and even quicker take down. The four, long extension poles provide a 72-inch tall spearing house. All the poles are outside the shelter and not in your way when you are spearing or fishing. The poles are attached to the tent fabric so nothing can get lost in the snow or dropped down the hole! The Stalker weighs ONLY 30-pounds and stores in a compact carrying bag – which is INCLUDED.

The Stalker has a 50-inch x 60-inch floor (20.8 square feet) with a 36-inch x 20-inch cut-out for the spearing hole. (See the full line of Lakco ice fishing gear, including ice saw, spearing decoys, spears, chisels and more at Ice Runner knows your spearing house will see rough use, so the floor is made of 1000 denier coated fabric AND it is attached with Velcro to be replaceable if ever damaged.
