Question for FM Administrators - Glacier Fish Houses

8 posts in this topic

Hi

I was looking at the gear page and saw the Glacier icehouses. I know the ice just melted, but I would rather fish when the water is hard. So....I was chasing the links for that item, and found this image missing - the inside view of the Glacier.

Will this image be avail. any time soon? Is there any place where a person could look at
one of these houses in person?

Thanks

UG

What part of the state do you live in? If you tell us maybe someone near you will have one you can take a look at. I have one ordered, if you live in Central MN you can look at mine when it arrives.ScottS

Grump,

IMHO you cannot beat this house if you want to be mobile. I love mine during those times of early or late ice when you need to walk out. I have also had mine out on MilleLacs in 45 mph winds. I had to hide it behind my truck but I was really suprised by how well it held up in those winds. I really like it for its durability and for how lighweight it is. Take a look at Rick's and let us know what you think

ScottS, others

I am in SE MN, midway between Rochester
and Owatonna. If one of you out there
has a Glacier, I'd love the chance to
take that "peak".

Scott: SWMBO's family is near St. Cloud - we
get up there fairly often. Where is that in
relation to you?

Thanks

UG

I live 10 miles West of St. Cloud. I think Rick lives down in your neck of the woods. I bet he could tell you exactly where you could see them.ScottS

Scott, Rick

I just peaked at the inside view pic/page
for the Glacier. I like what I see, now
I really want to see one up close and
personal. The 3 person unit weighing 24#
sounds great, compared to my 100#+
homemade shack that I have now.

Thks

    • Thanks for the heads up man I was looking at Garmins but I feel like the only ones I saw with SI were way out of my price range ha
    • I need to make a beer run the fridge is getting low up in here.   #rentfree
    • What does everyone use? decoy string mono braid thanks.
    • LOL!  The truth of the matter is, CWD is widespread across the country and I believe in only one state, somewhere out west, has it caused population level decreases.  The DNR has no choice but to try their darnedest to eliminate it.  If they don't and it becomes widespread, they will be ridiculed to no end.  If they try to fight it, they will still be ridiculed when they fail to eliminate it, but at least they tried.  IMVHO, it is here, just like the invasive species continuing to spread in our lakes.  There is no way to eliminate it.  But as I stated, it won't significantly impact deer numbers in the state.  The disease will kill far fewer deer than the efforts to get rid of it will.  It is mainly the health issues to worry about.  But I've been wrong once or twice before.
    • Was Hillarys plan to help rural America much like Obama's and Rick Nolan's? Wait for an industry to collapse then push for tarriffs a year after the fact and claim victory?
    • Kinda like how Trump is the grand wizard of the klan because he hasn't  denounced every supporter he's had well enough.
    • Regardless of where you put that fan you'll still need another fan of some sort to circulate the air around the house. The heater one only get the air out and off the heat exchange. Put one or two more in the upper corners blowing the air back down. Hugger style ceiling fans if you have room are the best. The blades need at bare minimum 4 inches and most experts say 8 inches of clearance to the ceiling. I'm at about 4 1/2 and it works fine. 
    • Keep in mind its technically winter and by foaming it in "his" shop he is doing a service to you and you are paying for it.  Your house will need to be at least 50 degrees to foam it.  I just had my 8x16 floor sprayed in my shop this past sat and it was $220.  The guys that did mine are done for the season, getting too cold to travel and keep the chemicals from freezing. 
    • An easier thing first is to get the thermostat bulb out of the cabinet of the heater, it will react faster to the temp you feel, not the retained heat in the unit.
