what ice house should I buy

4 posts in this topic

Well the time has come.Im tired of renting sleeper houses that dont live up to their discriptions.Could some of you that are experienced with some of the larger houses give me some advice on which to buy?I want one with at least two bunks,good lighting,good stove,nice interior,and the more holes the better.Since this will last me the rest of my life I will spend the money that it takes to get something NICE!!!Is it better to go with gas light or electric?I would like one that is ready to go,instead of doing it myself.Could you give me some recomanditions on houses you have seen or used.

sounds as if you want to do some traveling with this baby. and it sounds like you got money to burn and if you want to do it right the first time, you should look into an ultrashack. very mobile, all the comforts of home. I can probably speak for many people when I say that If I had the money I'd have one for sure, maybe two! You won't hear anybody complaining about their ultrashacks here.

You can't go wrong with an Ultra-Shack, my brother has owned 1 for 3 years and fishes every weekend and it has held up great. He also uses it as a camper for hunting or just camping. My son owns a shack built by Performance Engineering, this is the best built that I have seen. I have a Ice Castle brand that I think is fine. There are a lot of ways to go, you can buy off the lot just like a car, or have them custom made the way you want, or buy the shell and finish it yourself, thats what my son did. He now has a fish-house with 4 holes,2bunks, 3000 watt built-in honda generator, tv, sattelite dish, DVD surround sound, Play-station 2, stove,and double doors in the back for the ATV. Fishing or hunting, we're ready for anything.

i would make sure before anything else that you have a good trailer underneath it.i dont know what the ultra shacks or some of the others use for a trailor design but i do know the king krows have a all angle iron design i wouldnt buy one that didnt have a tube steel deign at least for the main frame. i think the tounge through the middle designs are a plus also. i would also make sure that you get one that has at least 14 inch wheels i had mine built with 15 inch and i am glad i did. some companies use 13 inch and thats just not big enough for a larger house in my opinion.hope that helps some, thats my .02 anyway.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
