Fish House Build

Recommended Posts



added two folding legs to the bunk that take the majority of the weight now. Also got the satellite hooked up! Hoping this Saturday will be the first trip for it out on the lake. Really excited other than a forecast low of -25 to -30 below and highs around -10 to -15, should be a good test for the furnace and insulation anyways. I tested it out last night to see how long it’d take to heat up from cold (right around 0 degrees outside) to 70, it was just over 30 min but I turned the burners on to speed it up. The house is pretty much done, just have a couple little things left. I’ll try remember to post some pics of how the first trip goes

I suppose the membrane uses an adhesive then what did you trim around the edges with?  Had you considered the 1 piece galvanized from American Surplus.

For how easy the rubber roof was to install I’ll stick with that every time. There’s termination bars that I used all the way around it and of course the adhesive as well, I want to say I used the latex one but not 100%.

Never weighed it, figured around 3K but not sure. 


Been out 5 days in the house already, first weekend in it the outside temp was -30 for a low and -15 to -20 for highs and it stayed at 70+ without a problem!



Watching football/tv while fishing has  been awesome!



I pulled up the first fish in the house, sauger


Definitely a keeper, and a decent walleye too



Slimball burbot and the biggest tullibee I’ve ever seen. I’m sure they get plenty bigger but that thing was fun to catch. I didn’t think I’d personally use the rattle reels much, if at all, but gotta say I’m really glad I put them in.



Can’t wait to get back out this weekend, tight lines!

Hope you kept the pout.... one of the main reasons I want to hit LOW!

I tried burbot (pout) for the first time last weekend and it was delicious! Cubed the pieces and boiled in 7up, then dipped in butter. Needless to say I’ll be keeping them from now on! 



Brought my best buddy out for the first time the last couple days, I think he enjoyed it as much as I did

They seem a little tougher to come by now that they’ve gained some respect as table fare.  If they were as thick as back in the 70’s - 80’s I’d be happy. 


Glad you’re enjoying your house and getting your pooch out! :)  Theyd rather be on the ice than at home too!!

    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?  
    • What the frequency Kenneth?
