You wouldn't be roughing it on the ice in this shack.

Now this is an ice shack. Sebago Bait in Windham have been quite a spectacle on the ice this season with their fancy new ice shack. The outfitter recently purchased a Core-Ice 6515ST Ice Shack. The swanky setup boasts two bunk beds, a TV, stovetop, microwave, oven, and a furnace. Leaving the cozy foam insulated oasis isn't necessary on those brutally cold days, as it features multiple ports to drop a line down.

The 1,500 pound rig is towed on the ice via a Polaris 1,000 on tracks. When on the road, the shack can be reconfigured to create cargo space for the hauling the ATV.

The fancy ice shack made a appearance recently on Damariscotta Lake, at a meet-up of popular Maine YouTube channels. Maine Trout Whisperer toured the shack, and documented it in his most recent video on the channel. Check it out in the video above, starting at 7:50.

The epicness of the ice shack is well documented in a recent video on Joe Holland's YouTube channel. The tour starts at 31:53 in the video above.
