'The Hybrid':  Everything An Ice Fisherman, Hunter Could Want.

Super Lightweight and Structurally Sound Fishhouse Is Jack-Of-All-Trades

Pop Quiz: What's 6 feet by 15 feet, lightweight, will hold two small ATVs or a snowmobile and gear, and will get you on skinny ice for that early- or late-ice walleye bite?

Here's a hint: It's also a goose blind, deer camp and utility trailer. Plus, in the off-season it's a storage shed that'll fit in a one-stall garage.

Custom Cottages' latest multi-purpose fishhouse called 'The Hybrid.'

A former machinist with experience in uber-high tech aviation industry, Eric Bongard first started "playing" with the concept of building wheeled fish houses that would "stay together" while remaining lightweight, strong and solid in 2006. Since, Eric and his crew have been busy since building the finest permanents on the ice, bar none.

But over the past year Eric has been devoting much of his time to the creation and perfection of what outdoorsmen across the country have been dreaming of for years – a multi-purpose solution that functions as utility trailer, ATV and snowmobile trailer, hard- or soft-sided drop-down fishhouse, goose blind, ground blind, deer camp, and a secure place to keep gear in year 'round.

The all-aluminum frame and truss network is tough, lightweight and resists corrosion for years of use. The hard-sided walls, collapsible hard roof and textured floor are filled with high R-value spray foam insulation to keep you warm in near arctic conditions. Accessories include benches, fold-out table, exterior propane tank crib, electrical at each hole for handy sonar/underwater camera/phone power and a ton of different camo fabric patterns.

'The Hybrid' is built entirely by hand in the U.S.A!
