    A ground blind for hunting is what I use for a temporary enclosure. I found one that pops up and folds down in less than a minute. Has enough room for two people to sit comfortably and hold in the heat from a buddy heater pretty good

    How easy is it to set up and take down? I can’t imagine you can tow it like that. But I love it wish I had something similar on my boat

    Each side is a separate panel that zips in - you don't have to put up all four if you don't want to. About a minute per wall to zip in and snap at the bottom.

    That’s awesome. I’ve been using a pop up ground blind. Wish I could afford something like that. Maybe one day lol

    Most nets you find in the stores aren't meant for deep water use. The mesh is too small, not enough weight, and the overall diameter isnt big enough to catch shad in 40 ft.
    I use a 12 ft mono net with 1/2 inch mesh and 1.5 weight with a 50 foot line. Not a net you can just pick up at Cabelas either and not cheap, but it makes catching deep water shad 1000 times easier. Just hover over the biggest bait ball you can find and let it sink a few feet past what you see on the sonar and pull it up. Make sure the net opens well when you toss it and don' let it touch bottom or toss it over timber.

Just as I had hoped she trailered down the highway at 70 mph with 0 issues.

    Just a thought, what about a pontoon boat with a hole in the floor? Perhaps floor to fold down like bomb bay doors on a aircraft to keep out the cold front and aft between the pontoons? Simple tent on the top.

    That could work, but mind the draft coming up through the hole.

    You can have a flap with snaps for the hole or cut a piece of plywood and place it there with some type of hook. Mine can with a flap with snaps.
