Ceiling Fans

8 posts in this topic

Looking at putting in a 12v ceiling fan in my 6.5x16 fish house. Anyone have any suggestions and where did you purchase the fan.

Make sure it is high enough so you don't hit it when you stand up.

You don't need a full blown home type ceiling fan in a fishouse it's over kill if that's what you meant.

I'd lean towards something smaller like Computor Fans or something similar they take up less juice, room and move the air perfectly.

If your dead set on a house type ceiling fan you could get a AC/DC converter.

Go to one of the this sites sponsors, Fish House Supply, Ron sells them and he's a great guy to deal with. I've had one for three years now, run it all the time. It only uses .75 amps per hour, quiet as a mouse and works great, trust me, once you buy one, who will be glad you didn't go the computer fan route.

I bought some 6 inch clip on fans at Menards and they are quiet and work great!

I built a 16' house with 7' inside walls, my first venture out was to Red. It was -20, I have a celing fan in mine, got it all fired up. It was pretty warm up top, and cool on the floor, turned fan on an was a little better. Turned fan on in reverse and wow! It works awesome. I would say within 5 deg floor to celing with a radiant wall heater. They are worth every penny! Fishhousesupply

    • 1.23.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Another week has come and gone up here at the Angle. The weather sure changed for us up here. The week started with below zero temps and we ended the week in the 30's with some rain mixed in. It still didn't affect the fishing, as houses produced their limits of fish once again including a 31", 11 pound walleye!   On the Minnesota side, we still have our houses scattered all around in 22-28 feet of water. Gold, pink and green were the best, tipped with a minnow or minnow head. We have had perch and saugers mixed in with all the walleyes, too!   On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good! Crappies have been in 28-33 feet of water. Only fish to your limit and then switch to another species’ for the rest of the day. Walleyes have been great in 22-29 feet, using the same colors as the Minnesota side, tipped with a minnow or minnow head.   This is Forrest Huset with another fishing report.   We hope to see you all at Sunset Lodge this winter!
    • I think the good news is we haven't look great lately but are still putting up wins, nothing wrong with that. Preds have been playing well lately and we were back to back so not going to get too concerned over that loss. Heck Kuemper even looked decent last night. CM Haula and Pommers have looked a little better lately. I am starting to hope Parise is still injured or something, he kind of looks like he is doing everything as usual but just can't get anything going. If this is him aging we are in trouble, lots of years left on that contract. Maybe just a bad season or fighting the puck I just don't know but something is off with him. The good news is we don't need a lot of out of him right now, just a little bit of elevated play and every now and then contributing on the score sheet. Granlund and Zucker have been just crazy good, even without Koivu last night they were our best line, always dangerous.
