costomizing fishhouses

Recommended Posts

Most everyone likes to costomize thier fh. Some for more organization and some for comfort. One thing I did to my otter the other day, was to sew some heavy lead line right to the flap. Got tired of wind blowing hard enough my holes didn't stay open. Don't really need it with snow on ice but w/o snow it really helps. It's cheap and adds only a couple pounds to it.(2 things I like to consider) Anyway anyone else do things that might be helpful to others.

GRIZ

p.s. my goal 4 next winter to have things ready b4 ice. hahaha

For the flaps on my new Otter I will be going with snakors next year (see Northlander if you need some)they are sand tubes.
Other than that its pretty simple for me, except for a couple Otter rod holders. smile.gif

I made a wooden frame around the sled portion of my Otter and mounted a plywood deck over the tub. Make a cut out and frame around a hole big enough to get your largest object in and out of the hatch and hinge this part of the ply. You have to remove the canvas and frame and re-install it to the plywood deck. Add carpet to the top of this assembly and you have a dry and level area to set all of your gear. You can fill the tub under the deck with gear and add more on top of the deck. It greatly increases the capacity of the sled. For about $50 worth of hardware and lumber and a few hours in the garage, it is the slickest modification I have seen yet. You can then use boat seats without having to screw them down. They don't move on the carpet even if you lean back on them.

    • Well Thank God for your wife. Shes a saint. 😇
    • 1 x 6 untreated red cedar bds cut to 15" for the weber has worked good for me. You can get lots of cooks on one board.  It's a lot cheaper than getting them at a grill store. The salmon looks good!
    • Yes, it's Food Grade cedar! 😋
    • Seeing the plank brings up a question.   Is that cedar that is sold as cooking planks any different than the stuff sold at the lumber yard for various purposes, like siding or roofing or docks?   
    • solo o... FALTA PESCAAA.. 
    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
