I get it. Used to do the hut thing for lakers, can be fun. Or, you can set up hut and fire up heater. Get all cozy and skunk it up in a dead zone. I'd rough it a bit before I made any big purchases

Honestly unless the wind is howling or it's particularly cold, I don't use a hut. And I know a bunch of people that don't really do it either unless it's necessary. It's nice to pack light....especially on places like Granby.

I'm not really spending big on the hut or heater, getting most everything on year end sales, looking at weight. If I go out by myself, I'm concentrating on the warm enough clothes and boots so I don't need the hut. I'm not into dragging a lot of stuff along. But I want to be able to handle the really cold days if necessary.

The only big expense that it seems hard to find a deal on is a flasher.

One more question came up, how much capacity do I need a on a reel? I might go to Granby, Grand Lake, William Fork Res, etc. At what depths would I expect to be fishing?

Put on a few hundred yards just in case you hook a Sturgeon.

Ok, but if I do that I'll just cut the line Wondering if 150' seems about right. More? Less?

150 is plenty.
I think my little 1000 Shimano holds around 200' of 10lb.
I like 50'-70' this time of year.
