    T&G Cedar install

    I did apply a sealer to the inside of the cedar. It is so soft I wanted to prevent stains or finger prints

    T&G Cedar install

    Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle

    T&G Cedar install

    When installing T&G cedar on the interior of your fish house do you leave is a little loose or push it tight

    6 x 10 Aluminum skid house build

    I was able to weight the house before taking it to the lake Got a little heavier than I had hoped, 1100lb (no gear) ATV still pulls it pretty easy

    6 x 10 Aluminum skid house build

    Built an aluminum box on the back for storage. Keep the propane tank, auger, shovel and other stuff in there.

    Forced air furnace in fish house

    I built a 6 x 10 skid house and have no problem heating with a Suburban 16K forced air heater. I run it off a 100ah 31 series battery from my boat. I charge it with a Renogy 100w solar panel Nice system, works well

    Never thought i would say this!!!!

    I agree, Fleet is going down hill fast. Used to be one of my favorite stores to shop, now not so much. Now we walk my tampons to get to a mediocre tool, automotive and sporting goods selection. It's nothing more than a glorified Walmart My last experience, 1 cashier open and 11 people waiting in line

    Locking your fish house?

    From MN DNR First of all, we can’t walk into your house and search your freezers like most people think. We would need consent from the homeowner or have a search warrant (“homeowner”, that also means occupant, lessee, etc.). Where our search authority comes into play is while a person is hunting or fishing. The best way to explain this is to give you an example – if you are out on the ice fishing and I observe you fishing. I also observe you catching fish but never throwing them back into the water. When I talk to you on the ice, you say you don’t have any fish in possession. This is where our authority comes into play – I observed you catching fish and not throwing them back – I have the authority to check all containers that could potentially hide those fish (coolers, containers, and even vehicles). Our authority would stop at the ice house which is treated like your residence when it comes to search authority. We typically just get a search warrant if we feel the violation is significant.

    Rigging a decoy

    There has to be an easy adjustable way to tie off your decoys for varying depths. I think there is a trick with a button but not sure how it goes. Wish grandpa was still around to teach me this

    Frost build up around entry door

    Anyone with Ice Castle fish house have issue with frost building up around the entry door? It eventually melts and prevents the door from closing properly.

    I live in central MN but northern MN is still home. Winter is my favorite season. It was always tradition back in the day just before Thanksgiving to deer hunt Sunday ice fish Monday. We are well before that this year up there. They have been driving sleds from Baudette to Waskish I'm hoping it only gets better
