ice shelters

i am looking to purchase an ice shelter, right now i have a rain check for an eskimo quick fish 3 man pop up, regular 499.99 on sale for 299.99 but its dimensions are only 70 W x 70 D x 80″” H,

woods artic ice shelter is a regular price for 249.99, with 76 L x 76 W x 67″ H dimensions. why is the price range so drastic? im assuming the 500 dollar ice shelter is 100 times better or am i just paying for the “eskimo” name?

crappy tire also has lots of the rappala 6 man shelters in stock for 399.99, if i was a betting man they will be on sale on thursday in the new flyer? any suggestions?

Fishing Tackle Uses

Hey guys I have a few questions in regards to the uses of two types of lures for this area.

First off is the casting spoons Little Cleos, Pixie Spoons, Gibs Crocodile, Cyclops, etc. I have a pile of these things ranging from the 1/8oz tiny ones up to the 1 oz Giant Little Cleos.

I was wondering what guys in this area are using these spoons for specifically what sizes, presentations and species?

The second question I had was the same as the first but for the Rapala Original Floater and Rapala Jointed both made of balsa wood and don’t dive more then 10′ I have every size of both up to the 18cm giant original floater. I know the Jointed 13 is popular on the Nipigon River for Salmon just looking to see what other techniques guys may be using with these lures and for what species?

Thank You for any help you can offer.
