another fish house question...

4 posts in this topic

my son has a 14' house and the only way he gets it out before you can drive is with the ATV. He still waits until around 10 " of ice considering there is some respectable weight to be dealt with. In the meantime its portable fishing. The lake it is set up on near St Cloud doess not have a resort to help out with the movement on or off. Bill

Some great ready, I bet everything you want to know is in here.

I have an 8'x16' house, not sure about the weight, but all aluminum except for the frame. I pull it out with my ATV and I have had it out on 7" of ice, and wouldn't be reluctant to do it again!

Don't know of anyone that will keep an eye out for your house. due to the risk. But if you're building a new house and have a 4-wheeler, build the house so you can drive in and haul it. I wished our house had that option, I would use it all the time, especially when I no longer have a truck.

I'm thinking of building a drop down house, probably 14'. Question is when could you typically expect to get this on the ice in the metro area?? It doesn't seem as though I'd have a wheeler along while pulling a house... How do you get it out there before you can drive? Do the resorts do this for a little extra income? Any good resorts in the metro that will help out as far as looking after the shack while your not around? I've always used portables, but looking at building a shack in the next couple years as I have a new fishing partner on the way and I don't think it will be easier on a youngster..

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
