sleeper fish house questions

3 posts in this topic

Hey guys i am currently building a sleeper fish house and was wondering what everybody does for floor insulation or if you even have any? Also what does a 14,16 or 18 foot sleeper weigh??

pink or blue foam, 1.5" thick is what's in mine, sandwiched between two layers of green treated plywood.

If you can find a place that will do it, some of the good professional houses have the sprayed in expanding foam insulation. A lot of times this will be exposed to the bottom elements, which will keep you from having to put down another layer of plywood.

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
