1st wheel house

13 posts in this topic

My brother and I just bought our first wheel house. 8' x 12' and has 10 holes in it. Found it on [YouNeedAuthorization] last Friday. The guy only wanted $200 for it. Couldn't pass up that bargain. It needs some work but not too much. We will probabally get away with putting in $200 or less. We are going to pull off all of the old plywood and put on liner panel cuz we can get that for little to nothing. We will put in 2 bunks on 1 side and just have to get a heater for it. All in all a pretty cheap way to fish. Can't wait for the ice.

Bad news about the fish house. We started ripping off the sheeting on the outside, found that 1/2 of the metal studs in it are rotten. Guess we are going to get new studs and start over. The floor is still good and the trailer is in decent condition. We'll see what happens.... I'll post picks when we are competed with the outside. (Hopefully this weekend the exterior will be compteted.)

    • I have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
