Ice Fishing Propane Heater vs. Electric Heater
When ice fishing, propane heaters are generally easier and more popular compared to electric heaters, requiring simple fuel hook-ups to operate. There are no battery-operated ice fishing heaters, so you’ll need a generator to power an electric heater. This may be a deal-breaker if you don’t have at least a semi-permanent shelter.
Consider the following when choosing between a propane heater vs. electric heater for ice fishing:
- Propane heaters come with different tank sizes, allowing you to bring along as much fuel as you need.
- Even if you’re able to hook up an electric heater at your shanty, generators can be noisy, which may drive fish away.
Do I Need a Heater for Ice Fishing?
A heater is great for staying comfortable in the cold, allowing you to keep fishing for as you want, even when temperatures are below freezing. Plus, L&M carries other ice fishing heater parts and accessories that you may find handy for a warm outing.
Do I use an ice fishing heater with or without a shelter?
You’ll contain more warmth using a heater under a shelter. Take a look at our hub-style ice fishing house for a variety of convenient options.
Does my shelter need vents if I’m using a heater?
Yes. Propane heaters can cause a buildup of carbon monoxide in your shelter, which is harmful to breathe. Make sure enclosures are properly vented.
