Wheelhouse pics

Recommended Posts

It's been a few months since I've browsed this site...but if I recall there were numerous posts/threads with wheelhouse build progress pics etc. I cannot seem to find any of them!? Can anyone posts some links to those type of threads or suggest other threads / sites that have good shack pics?

Basically I am looking for ideas on interior modifications / alterations / improvements guys have done to their permies. I recently upgraded shacks to an IC Lake of the Woods edtn and would like to 'personalize' it a bit with some simple functional mods.

Thanks in advance!

Use the search on the left side of the page, they'll come up with that one. If you do find a 40# solid tank cover be sure to let me know. I just looked again with no results.

I tried that...must not have been using the correct words to search!? I tried 'wheelhouse', 'build', 'pics'...

BTW... Love the IC LOW, seriously considering upgrading to one before the season if I can/do sell my house.

Use fish house build.

That still doesn't yield any 'picture' results!? I swear there were numerous posts with step-by-step pics of build process', guys sending pics of their shacks inside & out. One post in particular was a guy who was building a shack for a "Take a kid fishing" event and literally had DOZENS of progress pics / tips. Another guy had a HUGE orange shack he built from the ground up with lots of pics.

Hopefully I'm not thinking of another forum/site...

lol. I just answered my own question with the "Take a kid fishing" part. I searched that & found the post(s)! Also, I just realized if you use the MY STUFF pulldown arrow you can go back and look at all your old posts etc. I had commented on that thread so there was a link.

Anyway...here's the thread for anyone interested in revisiting it. LOTS of good info if I recall!

I just put in- Fish house build- and got 10+ pages? Wonder why you don't? It's the small search box on the left side a few inches down under The Leading Edge.

I think my problem was that I was selecting the ICE FISHING category when I searched rather than just letting it search ALL of HSO. Rookie move.

    • I will have to find some more, cause we ate all of them! They were all connected on the bottom as they are supposed to be. I haven't seen a half-free or a Verpa yet this year and I have only seen a couple of Devil's urn's. The popple fuzz was covering everything this morning so they were a little difficult for me to see. Hopefully we get a shot of water with the lightning over night.
    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
