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.

    • We actually just watched the first season of this show on Netflix finally. We loved it! We binge watched it and it only took us a little over a week to watch the entire season. We actually just finished watching Breaking Bad this winter and this was the next show we started. Season 2 should be out on Netflix within the next month or so I should think?
    • A lot of great ideas , seems liquid smoke is a fav, lipton is a good thought too. Great looking burglars fellas, and that bacon wrapped meatloaf looks mouth watering thirdeye.  I went back through my pics looking for the open pit burgers but all I found were steaks, but holy moly I must eat burglars a lot Cuz there's a bunch. Think next time I'll mix it up and see if anyone notices, thanks gents and keep the pics coming!!
    •   I agree. I wasn't exactly counting down to the midseason premiere, either, but it was a good, solid episode. I also really liked the clothes line scene--best action sequence in quite some time. I was impressed with the start overall and it's nice to see some sense of urgency and not just Rick moping around licking wounds.   Last night was...okay. Nothing stood out as bad, but it wasn't mind-blowingly good either. I am still reserving judgment for how this season ends, but half two is off to a pretty good start. I just hope they don't go off on a side character episode and kill the momentum they have going...
    • I for got, we added wild rice too!!  and only hand harvested too, I think it makes a huge difference in taste.
    •   Think his staff just wanted a break ........
    • What is your prediction on how soon after ice out that people will be out on Mille Lacs.  I am guessing within a week.   
    • I just pulled the trigger and bought the Milwaukee 1/2 inch brushless fuel drill and the 6 inch K drill setup.  Tested it this past weekend.   Could not be happier. 23 holes and battery still had one bar left. This was in approximately 18-20 inches of good ice. 5.0 battery. 
    • the one mentioned here, they have gone up to $399.99 but they still had free shipping and no has them around here.  they were very pleasant to talk to and get info.
    • One big boy just left Elite and went back to Mathews. Elite is a good shooting bow. 
    •     I'm sure God approves. After all, he's not in charge down here anyway...
