Any easy fish house builds?

8 posts in this topic

A friend and I are looking to build a simple fish house. Anyone have a picture or easy plan to build one? Looking for something somewhat permanent.

I think you need to give us a few wants/needs/house-type thoughts before we can give you a plan. Fish house or spear house, or both? Skid of wheel house? Tow a complete unit to the lake, or assemble on-site? Size?

sorry, I want a fish house enough for 2-3 guys. And either a assemble on site or something that can possibly take out of the truck and could slide on the ice.

Look at getting one of the Canvas Craft Northlanders. You can get a variety of sizes and all you need to do is build the floor, great houses that are fairly portable and really comfortable.

Probably more cost/time efficient than starting from scratch.

A great 8'x8' assemble-on-site house was shown here a couple of years ago, I think it was from a member named moosehunter or something like that. It was simply called his green house, and it was 2x2 construction, and broke down to sections no larger than 4'x8'. I'll look it up and try to repost it.

Build walls, floor, roof that bolt together. If you build it with 2X2s and flat tin it's very light. Can be left put together or taken apart for moving.

he was looking for something more perm type house. the northlander's are nice houses but I wouldn't leave it setup on the lake unattended since it would be to easy to steal. now on the other hand if he wants a house that could be taken on and off the ice this would be the way to go. I am personally look at getting either the 4X8 or the 8X8 northlander and am having a hard time deciding if I should get the standard heavy canvas or spend the extra money for the norpac material.

If your going 8 X 8 get the Norpac. It will be much easier to heat.

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
