Do you think this would work? I think about stuff to much.

Recommended Posts

I am in the process of putting together my 5x8 canvas craft house and was thinking about the spear hole and how big it should be when an idea came to me. Do you think it would work to stick 12"x12" mirror squares to the hole cover and angle it up to see the portion of the hole ( directly under you). Unless you are looking straight down the hole there is a blind spot under you. I am planning a 24x48 inch hole and thought it might be a cool idea, anyone ever try this? Other than it being fragile does it sound like it would work? I think about mounting some 1/4" foam under the mirrors to help them take any rough stuff.

You might want to think of polished stainless steel for mirrors instead of glass. They should hold up better.

In general I think it would hurt you more than help.

It does let you see more of the blind spot but it also allows the fish to see your movements from that blind spot.

But on the other hand it might work great for ya?

I guess I would say if it is easy and cheep to install... try it out and see if you like it or not.

I've heard of a few old timers that mounted bus mirrors on the wall of perm shacks. They allow you to adjust the tilt. (the ones that craby old bus drivers used to watch you in to make sure you weren't having any fun)

    • If anyone here is in the market for an electric smoker, give me an IM. I will soon be listing my MES 40 that has only been used 1 time. It is barely even seasoned!
    • Not yet, but I have been thinking of trying one....
    • I figure any fish that doesn't get into my boat was a wall-hanger for sure. 😀
    • I've never bought a car/truck over $15K, so yeah.  It would take a powerball jackpot before I was in the market for a dealer showroom boat.
    • Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness. 
    • I just bought two panels that I am going to trim slightly to replace one of the 3 grates on my Big Horn grill... I actually have a buddy that received them this weekend for fathers day and say they work just as advertised on his pellet grill.... I will give an update next week when they arrive.
    • never heard of it....  
    • Since we are talking about searing stations, etc....   Has anyone ever used the Grill Grate product on their pellet grills?   https://www.grillgrate.com/shop-grillgrates/standard-grillgrates/pellet-grills/
    • You've got the right idea. There are a ton of bacon recipes here on HSO if you search for bacon - I've pasted one here to what seemed like one of the more popular brines. I made bacon once, and it turned out OK, but it's a long process.  Good luck and let us know how it turn out.
