    whats better prefomance egineering or ice castle

    My buddy use to work for Tom and yes he builds a nice house, but the only thing that I dont like about his houses is the fact that he uses PL400 glue on the back of his interior sheeting to prevent warping, but if you ever need to get at wiring or just remodel it you are going to have a blast getting that stuff off. Just an FYI and like I said he does build a very nice house.

    Go with computer fans instead they move the air nicely and dont take much juice.

    15 Rules of the Fish House

    Thats pretty good!!!! I would change the one about the cell phone to none allowed in house period, since that is what ice fishing is about right? If you need to use it go outside or just leave it in the truck IMO Only can be used when you catch a big one and then you are limited to 10min, some would prolly have withdrawls if this was the case. I have one to add, if you are going out to grab a beer, then ask the rest too...

    Aerator-How close is too close?

    Doesnt always help though. 2 years ago I had my house on Eagle lake and it has one and all season I had always taken the same path to and from house and one night after a few beverages I for some reason just decided instead of backing up I just went right around my house and BAMMO I dropped my rear tire through... Last year I took a different path one day and I dropped the whole truck and I was pushing ice with my bumper and I had to pin it in 4 HIGH, and eventually had to shift all the way down do first gear to get back up onto the ice and this stretch lasted all of 50yds. The only thing I can come up with was that there was a huge water pocket due to the aerator which was a good 200yds away. Ice is NEVER truly safe 100%, especially when there is a aerator involved. The DNR usually stakes out a "SAFE" distance, but not in all cases. Due to this I have only been on that lake once since with my car,even though the fishing can be great out there. NO FISH WORTH MY LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not even a 20lb walleye.

    Glow Jigs

    Those brands all last longer than that for me usually. What are you charging them with? I use a cheap flasher or led light or a tazer from I believe LIndy. Others that come to mind are Demons by custum jigs and spins, plain old moon glows, and I have good luck also with Shrimpos from custom jigs also, the head glows and so does the body on these, and they work awesome for crappies, and the last one that really sticks in my mind is the Forage Minnow by Northland.
  7. Funny??? I asked this same question (except it was for the drivers side) and got 1 reply on the subject over the last couple weeks. Is this also the case with my 96 too then?
  8. My buddies dad left last Saturday evening and after he got off the lake he thought that he had left his jig box on the tailgate of his truck by accident and today he went to look for it in his pails it was missing. So if anyone has any info on this please contact me or post something on here and if you found it PLEASE return it and be honest. He said he knows what he had in there. One thing that sticks in my mind is that he had several 1" forage minnows in there and tons of other panfish jigs. Thanks for your help

    Wheeled house Craftsmanship and Quality???

    I have a buddy that used to work for Performance Engineering out of Glencoe and just last night he was telling me that when they built their walls they used construction adhesive on the studs to prevent the paneling from warping and then stapled it on.

    Frying Oil?

    Peanut hands down, it won't breakdown as fast as the others, last time I orderd mine through a friend that has a restaurant and it was labeled heavy duty and this stuff is the schmidt!!! One thing to remember is not to ever get the oil too hot or it will burn and breakdown and your fish or turkey will taste like [PoorWordUsage].

    Thanks, but doesnt help me hold them up in usable position though
  14. I am putting little shelfs by each hole and want to make them hingeable so that I can drop then out of the way to drill holes, but yet they must be sturdy.
