See Through Hole Covers

 How do you keep those solid whole covers from freezing over the hole?

 

I actually have the opposite 

Problem of keeping the ice solid.

After about two weeks of fishing the same spot,IMG-20130228-00288.jpg.67c35dbd7de70821255dfe3d9bc8bba1.thumb.jpg.dbfd4007dd52f5d8d33f7eac330958f0.jpg

The front tip-up is floating on water.

 I now bank the back 3/4 of the house only To regulate the trapped air underneath.

Where are you? Maybe just block the house up and don’t bank it at all. I’ve never heard of that problem before. Do you leave the heat on all the time when you leave?

If you are spending that much time in one spot, spray foam is going to do you a world of good and will also make things comfy on the feet.  I suspect it will also cut down on the wading pool as well!

Hole liners would help too. Do you use them?  I think some of that happens in all houses that sit a while with heat on. If a fan is forcing heat down from the ceiling into a marginally/uninsulated floor a ton of heat transfers. Just a guess.

Foam may give me a couple extra days.

I try to pull the shack ahead for fresh ice every two to three weeks.

 

 Alot of times I have to move due to a heavy snow fall or warm streak.

As the weight displaces water caused from the sagging ice sheet underneath me.

 

 Nobody ever said living on

A floating ice cube for two months straight was going to be easy or smart.

I would bet the first time you seen it the OH Ship factor came to mind.

Sounds pretty friggin awesome to me. Still, for the couple hundred that it costs spraying is definitely worth it

    • Great advice and sounds like you have had some great times on the great Upper Red Lake!  The difference on Red from having a good day to a great day can be as much as moving 20 feet away!  From what you explain I would try to befriend a local or rent an ice auger and bring with the cold gear.  Rent your house like you are and then throw the auger in the car and explore or just pop holes in the area of your house so you can get out enjoy the uniqueness of fishing outside and your chances for landing more fish increases greatly opposed to hard house fishing.  Good Luck!!
    • I have been here a good 17 years and I think there is only about 1 guy left here that I have met in person. Back in the day I knew and met several members who were frequent posters on FM. I met quite a few of them through the BP Catfish League but I think most of those guys are long gone.
    • Ok getting things back on track.  Next month will be my 14th year and I think I've only met one other member.  Met Frank (Surface Tension) several years back on Fish Lake near Duluth.  He was incredibly helpful and generous sharing his knowledge of the lake.  If I remember right my dad and I drove up and Frank called saying the forecast looked like rain for the entire day.  Well my dad and I were already on the way and were going to fish rain or shine so Frank and his son still geared up and met us for some fishing.  I don't remember exactly how the day broke down but I remember get really wet but also catching a lot of nice fish.  I've fished the lake a lot since but that was my best day by a long shot. 
    • I am making Christmas jerky packs for gifts by request   so where do I send my request??!!!  enjoy them good eats!!!
    • Thanks Frank. Your another member I have met about 5 times sledding, Twig swap, old Bside Bash and never got in front of the camera?  🙂   Lets get this thread back on track about meeting folks on this site for Outdoor activities and stop giggling about a guys titties! 🙄
    • Don't let him fool ya, he used to be known as LMIT OUT. 😁
    • Here you go just for you! I don't hunt that spot anymore anyway. Best time to be in that stand is in the evening!  😉   N 47.048424 W 94.735163
