Crank-down Frame

8 posts in this topic

Does anyone know someone that welds Crank-down Fish house Frames? My neighbor at the cabin and I would like to build one over the summer.. I know its a little pre-mature to think about this now, but a guy comes up with millions of ideas while he is sitting in the shanty on cold days!

I have an ice castle that spends most of its time on lake minnetonka, and it is putting a lot of wear and tear on it buy pulling it back and forth so many times.. it would be nice just to have another ice house at the cabin. The frame is all we need, so we can custom build the rest. A 14' would be nice. Anyone have one they want to sell or build?

thanks.

I am acutally looking for a new frame so I can build another house. I would like to have one that is going to be used just for the cabin and a few other lakes around Brainerd..

Like I had mentioned, all I need is a frame. I want to custom build the rest. I am not the best welder in the world, so i thought it would be a good Idea to have someone that is experienced to build the frame. Thanks! smile.gif

Victoria Welding and Repair shop right on HWY 5 in Victoria across from the DQ. He repaired a house for me last year and was building a couple when I was in there. He also had a couple of frames in his yard and said he will build one to any stage you want. Straight frame, frame and shell or complete. he was really reasonable on price. He also turned my boat trailer into a swing tongue. He does very nice work.

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
