Fish house Trailer

8 posts in this topic

Is there anyone in the Duluth area that builds a good sturdy fishouse trailer and are reasonably priced? I am looking for a trailer which the wheels can crank up and the house will sit directly on the ice. General size that i'm looking for would be 8x12. Thanks.

Check out Jay Soderbloom out near Cromwell. Just Google his name and you will find lots of info. He makes some really nice light aluminum trailers and houses.

Northern Tool sells trailer frames in Duluth, and Quality fish house frames and houses are sold through Bowe taxidermy. Jay Soderbloom near Cromwell has been great to deal with as well as I have been building mine all summer. That's all I know off for local stuff.

I second what Granny said. Great houses that are light, way warm (Sray foamed) and at a great price.

Actually, yes. My nephew who is a carpenter by trade, was in the market to buy one a couple years ago. He got tired of the so-so construction and poor floor plans of ones made by others, so he made one for himself. Now, he's started building them for others. He got help from his great uncle who was a welder until he retired for the frame. Then, he installed hydraulic lifting axles, an electric panel-inverter with a heater, lights, bunks, radio, rod holders, etc. He put a stove/oven in one too. He's building his 3rd house now, and he's 8 miles north of town. Of course, he'll be after old mossy antlers this weekend, but if you want to drop in to at least look at what he's building now, with no pressure, I'm sure he'd be more than happy to let you look at what he builds. I don't mean to speak for him, but maybe he'd be interested in building one to meet your specs. He enjoys building process, doing it in the evenings after work. He's a relaxed, low key guy.

If you're interested, reply back to this post, or send an e-mail to my home mail, and I'll reply with his phone number.

I'll check back to this next week. I'm off soon to prep for the hunt this weekend too.

My home mail is - evntam AT msn.com - if you put it together right with the @ thing.

I have always had my frames built by "The Fish House Store" in Milaca,Mn. I have not had one problem with them. They have been building wheel shacks & frames for over 18 yrs. They are also the only manufacturer who will back their frames with a 10 yr warranty. I hope this helps you out.

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!
