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

    • Moved my fan today  cut heat up time in half very noticeable improvement 
    • Well, she's still right, you know..
    • Went out pheasant hunting today and ran into a trapper setting 330s along a creek for beaver .  I'm not much into trapping but know how these things work, and after having a civilized conversation with him his were all in the water and he let know where they were located so at least the pooch wouldn't get his leg caught in it. don't feel bad, he hasn't caught much either . 
    • That may be, but it sounds a lot like "I didn't get a job" butthurt.  That grifter would be singing the praises of Trump's genius if she was on the payroll.   Eh, why not?  When they aren't taking credit for things they had nothing to do with, they are taking blame for things they had nothing to do with. Pence is still the governor of Indiana
    • sounds like from animals that eat meat. 
    • Huh?  Sorry,  I should have known better.
    • Great idea, have you looked into what it would take? 
    • I think what fish meant was it might not hurt to allow more than 60 days for a season in states like MN.   When the birds are late we can still have a chance at the northern birds.  If freeze up and the flights are early, the longer season won't matter.  There won't be much if anything to shoot.   I get what you're saying about lengthening the gap, but that's a roll of the dice since we have little chance of knowing when freeze up will get those late birds moving.  How long do you make the gap?   After a year in my new area of the state I can adjust my expectations and chase more wisely next year.  This year I was anticipating much better.  I think that's the worst part - the big push being the big let down.
    • Wool socks are a must, they insulate even if wet. Cotton socks in any warm boot will make your feet cold. The warmth of the boot while you are active make your feet sweat. I have the LaCross Iceman from a couple decades ago, still no need to go buy something different.
    • Some wild meat can have trichinosis.  Domestic pork no longer has it. I'm pretty sure that venison doesn't have a parasite issue.
