    I bought the Wide House 5500 last year and it worked out great,but I wanted a little more room and bought the Wide House 6500 this year. After delivery I set it up in the yard and can't believe how much larger it really is. Both the Shappell Wide Houses are great Hub Tents.

Check your state's laws to see if your area allows both fish harvesting techniques simultaneously.
