Wheels on Fish house?

4 posts in this topic

How do you mount wheels on a fish house? I have looked at fish houses on the lake and they have all kinds of different ways to do it. But what is the cheapest and easyest way to do this.
Thanks LW56003

Well, the best (and road safest) way is to have the frame with the retractable wheel system already on it...before you start building the rest of the house...and then you would have to have some knowledge or experience with engineering it, so it's safe on the highways. Otherwise, you'll have a trailer that sways and wobbles down the highway at certain speeds...very dangerous.

There's a ton of different ways to do it. None of them are as easy as buying one of the trailers. It depends what you have to start with. If you have something with some sort of steel frame and a hitch that's on skids or something it may not be too bad to rig something up. If not it may be easiest to buy one. If you have a steel frame you could buy a stub axle, hub assembly and a piece of pipe. Then weld the pipe under there as an axle and then have the stub axles either welded inside the pipe or have them be removable with a pin. That would be the easiest way.

    • Hotspot outdoors of course!
    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
