fans in the ice house?

Recommended Posts

I've heard of people putting small fans in their portable to circulate the air, any advice on where to get one and powering it?

Computer fans are a popular choice run off of a vex type battery.

nmitchell17, I run 3-4.5" computer fans in my house,1 on each window and 1 in the double doors. They keep the windows frost free and the doors from frosting up. In the process, I've found that they also help keep the floor warmer. I generally fish wearing my moccasins. I have each fan on a seperate switch, so if I see a need, I turn them on, as needed, and they do they're job. I have found that sometimes, I need to run 1 side continously vs the other side, not at all. I believe it depends on the wind. I got my fans from Northern, if it helps. I just run mine off the 12v house system. Phred52

You can get small (3" to 5") fans that are 12 volt at Northern Tool. Got a 5" in there a couple of years ago and run it with a vex battery along with my lighting. Works great and very cheap.

I also got my small pc case fans at Northern. I run two of them in my otter lodge, I mounted them to aluminum brackets and hang them from my center ceiling support. I power them off an extra 12 volt battery, I use a 4.5 amp hour battery and it runs my lights and fans all day.

    • It’s amazing to me to look back already and realize 1.5 days around C season time  will be the story of my entire archery season this year.  Just too much other stuff going on AGAIN this spring to make an honest season out of it.   Full on fishing during any spare moments now.   Good luck out there!
    • Here are two more for you leech, but this time the holes were in some red pines up the Echo Trail.
    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
