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?

Yikes! Is your floor spray foamed?

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

    • I doubt it but you can call the DNR and ask. You can pull up the regs on a smart phone anyway.
    • ......The 6 packages from the first round are long-gone, so I am brining up another batch. Ended up buying an entire case of butts (@ $1.18 per #) from Sams. I am going to do 3 butts - one with High Mtn buckboard seasoning and two with another dry brine consisting of Tenderquick, brown sugar, garlic salt, and black pepper. I always like getting to the raw ingredients of spices versus relying on someones "magic rub". If it goes badly I will revert back to the HM cure. As an added note, I also picked up a $20 loin that I put HM cure on to experiment with some Canadian bacon.... Will check back in 10 days or so!  
    • if thats the case i hope there printing water proof versions!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i cant keep mine nice and tidy in the cab of my truck!!!!!!!
    • Have not heard this. Why just a boat? It needs to be in some peoples buckets to so when their 500 fish over their limit they can't say I no know, I no know? 🤷‍♂️
    • Got mine yesterday during the snow.  I was informed that there is a new rule requiring the MN Fishing Regulations be carried on your boat and that this new rule is not documented in the Regs.  Anyone know if this is fact or just a kindly recommendation?
    • Mike is as good as it gets, especially if you're talking archery.
    • Mike Foster A-1 Archery in Hudson WI March 19th at 6:30
    • Coyle for Donato and a 5th, not as bad as nino for rask because at least donato has some potential to be a better goal scorer but overall yikes, not thrilled with Fentons bigger trades so far, the smaller ones have been good but that is the problem. Either way all signs point toward a rebuild of some kind.
    • It's a prairie zone.  We're right on the northern edge of the hills, Just north of I90 near Sturgis.
    • Wow, Bobber! You resurrected an oldie from the good old days, here!    I STILL haven't tried this yet - although I have bought a LOT of Prague Powder between then and now.😁   I think any roast wold work but you might get a pretty fatty result with chuck.  If you're looking to make corned beef & cabbage for St.Patty's Day and eat it more like a pot roast - a little extra fat might not be bad. But if you're looking to make your own lunch meat or eat it cold, I think chuck would get a little greasy in your mouth.  Corned beef is traditionally made with brisket.   Maybe I'll give this a go - it's almost that magical time of the year - that sweet spot between youth hockey season and youth baseball season when I get to do what I want... sometimes.
