ATV Ice Fishing Accessories

Going to be using an ATV for ice fishing this year.  Biggest question right now is what to do for heat.  Have a Mr. Heater sunflower, but lugging around a 20 pound propane tank plus the Mr. Heater head seems like it could be problematic.  Is there a good system for hauling tanks, or should I get a Big Buddy heater instead.  A little worried about not enough heat from a Big Buddy. 

Any other must-have accessories for ATV ice fishing?

 Also, what about a hard pole case.  Anyone have the Otter, MTM, or Lakewood case?

Get a smaller propane tank. 5 or 10 lb

aluminum are nice - but pricey

 20lb tank fits perfect in milk crate and can be attached to ATV racking easily.

FYI,  the Big Buddy on high spits out 4000 more BTU's than a sunflower when it's on high.

Looks like someone has duals on their ATV.

I've got the otter case. On its 4th season now. Been very pleased with it. I can cram 8-10 combos in there.  Have not broke a rod in transport since I got it. My 0.02

Milk crate and a 20 lb is the way to go. The 5 to 10 lbs are nice but expensive and they charge you just as much to fill as a 20 lb in most locations. I made my own wooden rod box with foam insert to hold rods in place, I can put 6 combos in and it works great, on its 6th season now and never a broken rod or tangle. I would recommend some sort of auger holder instead of just strapping it to the rack, lots of companies make them.

In Fargo they charge by gallon/lb for propane. Filling a 10 costs 1/2 as much as filling a 20.
