$130,000 in prizes and an Ice Castle get together

Bring your Ice Castle, family & friends to the Ice Castle get-together and the American Legion Fishing Derby Feb. 3rd-5th. $130,000+ in prizes!

Owning an Ice Castle isn’t just about the fishing and camping. It’s about making memories with family and friends the whole year round. As people begin to venture out for the first time, they swap stories with fellow ice fishermen that they have not seen since last season. Some have added family members since the previous ice. Yesteryear’s babies are now 2 and can get in on the fishing. Many don’t even fish, but enjoy the warmth and cabin-like feel of their Castles.The Drexler Family (founders of American Surplus/Ice Castle Fish Houses) started a new culture of Ice Fishermen that really includes everyone, mixing the multiple generations of people on the same sheet of frozen water, all having similar conversations, all enjoying nature’s winter bite, all together, all appreciating each other’s company, all exhibiting the “goodness” that doesn’t often make the headlines. The human spirit still exists, so head to the nearest frozen lake with your Ice Castle to see it first hand.We are so very excited to invite everyone to the 19th Annual American Legion Fishing Derby and Raffle as well as an Ice Castle Get-together Feb. 3rd through the 5th. The Derby has the highest prize offerings ever with over $130,000 in prizes to be given away!We are expecting over 100 Ice Castles to join us for the family friendly event.

Our best selling high output generator!

  • The Yamaha EF2800i weighs just 68 pounds, making it the lightest generator in its class. The key is the multi-pole rotor with a small stator. This design is smaller and lighter than a conventional twopole alternator with a large stator—and it helps make the EF2800i extremely portable.
  • With the EF2800i, Yamaha has created one of the quietest generators in its class (64-68 dBA). Our engineers looked at the total design, and then made changes where they would be most effective: engine operating speed, intake noise, exhaust noise, and valve train noise.
  • The EF2800i—with its inverter system—features Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) so wavelength distortion is less than 2.5 percent, making it ideal for equipment that requires stable frequency and voltage, such as computers or other sophisticated electronics.
  • Yamaha’s Smart Throttle feature automatically adjusts engine speed to match the load. The result is quiet running, maximum fuel efficiency, and a run time of 14.7 hours at ¼ rated load.
  • Yamaha’s Oil Watch warning system prevents engine damage, avoiding costly repairs and minimizing down time.
