Heating fish trap ?

3 posts in this topic

What do you use to heat a Fish trap?I currently use a coleman lantern wich is OK for night fishing but tends to get in the way having to set it by the holes.Any suggestions?

I have to say a $12 dollar coleman or poulan stove top is the smallest cheapest and kicks out all the BTU's you will need for a fishtrap, plus it's versatile for cooking, small and light weight. I use a base off a coleman 1pd canister holder that keeps the unit steady it's a wide circular base about 9" that steadies the bottle and stove unit. Make sure your trap has air vents. Check the Coleman HSOforum or call them direct to see if they sell the 1pd. propane canister bases if not you can make one, fairly simple.

I use a 5# propane tank and the smaller poulan heater head that screw right on to the tank. I think that it puts out 3-5000 btu and is plenty. Have used the full size Mr.Heater tank mt also but it is a bit much for such a small area. I've also tried the small one pound tank heaters but they dont seem to work very well when it is real cold and then your screwed.

    • IDK, I am kinda liking this show more and more. Its much better than the first season. Yeah, Madison has her quirks, but there are some interesting characters and this whole conflict with the indigenous people now is intriguing.
    • DOILIES. Those thing on yer man-cave table tops. So that's a pic of DOLLY, huh? Smurf 's ol' gal friend....or yers?       
    • The first piece that Golden State might be losing is Andre Iguadala. Would love to see the wolves grab him.
    •   Sure anytime. But, it kind of sounded above you were over Dollies?  Or was that Dolly's?  
    • With all the moist and cool weather, the slugs are having a feast on our garden plants.  My wife asked me to look over some plants that the insects were destroying.  Upon inspection, this is what we found - slugs.  The vegetables treated with slug bait were fine.  It was the flowers, asters, marigolds, pole beans, etc. that were untreated and weakened by some hail were experiencing a slow death.  Check this photo out of the slugs.  These were white like extra large maggots.  They are all treated and coming back strong.
    • WOWZER what a beast!!!!!!!!!!! that DNR  biologist, Mero, i had a talk with him he did the creel survey on our little lake up in itasca county, odd that he would comment about mille lacs since he was out of the grand rapids DNR  office!!!!!! good guy though!!!!!!
    • Crud. I knew that would come back on me. I'll haveta head up to leeches and borrow some of his table doilies.

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
