Have a fish house you can be proud of; a sweet Camper Conversion

34 posts in this topic

Have a fish house you can be proud of!

Be the proud owner of a one of a kind camper and fish house. Save yourself the work and most importantly the cost that comes with designing and building the ideal fish house. My unique design removes the need to remove tires or mess with pins and dangerous levers. This shack features a box containing the 6 holes which drops tight to the ice with only the turn of a crank; picture a sunken living room which raises and lowers. Simply pull onto the ice, drop the box, and drill your holes. In addition, you will no longer need to look down a tunnel to see your bobbers; the box sits only 5 inches off the ice.

This unique fish house is built from a 16 x 7.5 foot dual axle camper, featuring 6 holes (with covers), 30,000 BTU wall furnace, 3 bunks, LED lights, 12 volt ceiling fan, and 2 solar panels (capable of recharging a deep cycle battery in 12 hours). The completely remodeled interior features fully insulated ceiling, floor, and walls finished in white paneling. As an added bonus, I have designed a weight transfer skid which allows this shack to be towed with an ATV. Call me at 651.324.4021, Price $2800.

6 holes with covers

30,000 BTU wall furnace

New trailer lights

3 bunks with bedding

LED lights

12 volt ceiling fan

2 solar panels

Weight transfer skid

4 new tires

SO if it understand correctly, it is like a camper with a pop-out side except that it pops down instead?

That's kind-of neet. laugh.gif

Hooks,

Your exactly right. When describing the fishing area I use two comparisons; 1) imagine a camper slide-out going from the bottom of the camper to the ground or 2)a sunken living room which raises and lowers. Simply, four turns of the crank and you are either up for travel or down for fishing.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .

      We've got the old Lakemaster chip in our Lowrance 10" unit (circa 2008-ish, I think).  The Lowrance is the generation before the HDS, but I forget the exact model.  Since getting that Lakemaster chip, Lakemaster was bought by Humminbird and their chips are now only compatible with Humminbird  units.  You might be able to find a used chip somewhere, but be sure it's from before the Humminbird acquisition.   Navionics is the only other option for Lowrance that I know of. Regardless, there have been several 1-foot soundings done in the recent past, so be sure that whatever you get has that level of detail and you should be satisfied.   There are several old threads on GPS chips for LOTW...use the search box at the upper right of your browser and type in "LOTW chip" (without the quotes).

      Also noticed or heard you say your using 4 lb. test line. Is that correct?? We used 10-12 mono and 15  flouro.  We sure love this lake. Can't sleep for next three weeks waiting to head up there LOL

      ago ·  Hey guys, I'm new to this site. Trying to learn more about this lake. My brother and I fished there last July 9-16-2016. We did good on all species, especially like and walleye. We had several rallies on smallmouth, but never put a solid pattern together. My brother had a 4 and 5 lber. On perch shad rap. I caught many 1-1/2 - 3 lbers on uvibe speed craws. Suspending jerkbaits caught all species well. I've been checking this site and Mr. Johnwis has some great info and video. If any of you out ther could help us get on them big smallies, we would greatly appreciate it. We're from southwest Louisiana and we'll be staying at island view lodge July 22-29 . Thanks and this is a great site

      So, funny pictures!

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy. "   Just because you are not glowing doesn't mean its necessarily healthy for a fetus it takes awhile for it to build up in a healthy adult that's just my           Methylmercury exposure in Wisconsin: A case study series” (2005)
      This articles describes exposure of 14 people who at fish two times a week or more and one person who ate no fish. "Three of the individuals reported vague subclinical symptoms such as mental confusion, sleep difficulty, balance problems, or visual disturbances, which improved after their mercury levels returned to
