Do Fish House Frames Ever Go On Sale?

Recommended Posts

I'm going to build a house for next year so I'm not in a hurry. Is there a time when frames are cheaper? Would it be now because company has a few they don't want to carry over? Is there evr a time to get a better deal? Any body know someone that decided not to build and has one? 8x16 or 8 x 12 with an extened V is a consideration for me.

Thats why I thought now might be the slowest time for companies not wanting their cash tied up. Now thru spring can't be good for them. If anyone knows a manufacturer with a good deal I'm in the market. If I wait till spring I'll probably build one. Just PM me.

Your best bet is to start contacting these companies and see what deals you can strike up.

The deal with retractable wheel fish houses are not just for fishing anymore. So they can hold their own when it comes to pricing.

Believe me, I'm the worst negotiator in the world. I'm not trying to gyp anyone just looking for a good price.

When is the end of the season on Frames? Just wondering since most people build their houses in the Summer/Fall.
Ya, but the Mfg don't. They don't want to have a bunch of frames sitting around rusting out in the yard all summer since most don't have room to store them inside! So I would say in the next month or so. wink

Check Clist from time to time and you'll find some. You'll find new frames that the seller bought and decided not to build a house on it.

Late Fall sold a 8x22ft Shack Rack frame pretty quickly on the list. That frame had a retail around $5K and it sold for $3.5K, buyer got a great deal.

Last fall I had a frame made by miltona blacksmith. They were cheaper than all the others and it is a great frame. You can customize it however you would like. I had a receiver blank put on back for a bike rack for camping trips and had them upgrade to a heavy duty. Give them a call if you can't find another.

    • Probably something like electric cars that was never going to happen!  Only the future will know.
    • scary interesting...
    • Article on WSJ.com today about a European clean meat startup getting nearly $9 million in funding from Merck. With big pharma in the game, is there really any doubt it will be on store shelves soon? The cattle and pork industry better come up with a "pink slime" type of name for this, or they can kiss their herds goodbye. Franken Meat? https://www.wsj.com/articles/startup-producing-cell-grown-meat-raises-new-funding-1531738800?mod=hp_lista_pos4
    • sorry, quoted wrong post.   If one quotes a quote, the system messes up the attribution
    • Water that doesn't come out of a plastic bottle.
    • That's YOUR opinion.    Just remember, everything is fine, in moderation.
    • I do it, have experience with both homers and shooters. I am not a die hard as I was a few years ago but will get back into more when I get a new pup here in the near future.   The birds are not to bad to care for just need food and water. My experience and most troubles have been trying to keep critters out of the pigeon loft. Mink etc like to wreak havoc and it sucks when you lose all your birds to a stupid rodent. Especially the homers after you put in all the work to get them coming back. I haven't had any issues keeping birds at home by the dogs. Best part with the homers is if I train away from home, most times the birds are back home in the loft before I get back lol.   As for working the dog, you probably want to invest in a bird launcher as well especially since your dogs a pointer. Not sure how steady your dog will be or what kind of prey drive it will have. Hopefully you letting it chase birds already didnt cause any issues. I would just slowly introduce them to the pigeons. Might even start with just clipping some flight feathers and throw it in an open area and see how your dog reacts and go from there.   It should point naturally but just use the launcher to steady the dog up. Just look up methods with a check cord etc. when using the launcher. If you want them steady to flush or steady to shot that's up to you but that's way down the road yet. Some of that  pointing should come natural but with this dog being a little older you never know what your gonna get but never too late to start either I guess.    good luck
