airconditioner for fish house?

3 posts in this topic

I am looking for a small airconditioner that would go on the wall instead of on top of the fish house. Where do I find the smallest one of these and has anyone ever done this? thanks for the info. kooba.

i have thought of doing this

you can get away with the smallest one you could find

anything over a 5000btu would be overkill to the max

thing is you would have to build it in or have windows that would accompany it. and if you build it in there two potential problems. one if you need to replace it you will have a tuff time finding one the same size. two when you do build it in you wont be able to remove it for cleaning. ... paul

I actually did this on an old camper that I had. I picked up a cheap window unit at home depot for under $70 and it worked great. The windows in the camper obviously were not the type to accept it, so I pulled the glass portion only out and built a custom wood "window" to put the a/c into. It worked great, you only had to run it about 10 minutes an hour to keep the camper cool (18 foot camper trailer), then just run the fan to keep the air moving. May not look as nice as a roof unit, but a heck of a lot cheaper.

      still love my setup for bluegills but not the best when I use a size 10 jig and fishin for crappies. I might grab the clam springs and rig a rod up with the wire thats a little stiffer and see how it works. this would just be for deep fish.

      Out Sunday ... Looked like a City of Trucks and Castles ... Bite was slow but managed a few Crappies / sonnies on Plastics.   we lost a nice walleye near the hole on a moon jig and crappie minnow.   Might have to go Perching in the shallows on south side of MilLacs this weekend.  Hey Moose ... what ya using for Perch on Millacs shallows 12-18 FOW?

      Was out after work for a couple hours yesterday and got two walleyes to bite. The Landing is getting flooded out. Was kinda hesitant on driving out after seeing all the trucks parking on Shore and taking the long walk out. With all the black ice out there it was a little spooky but after seeing 17" to 19"of good ice  was pretty comfortable with it

      I will be interested to hear of your experience.  Please let us know.    I think the anecdotal evidence was that the service and quality was not up to the premium price, although that could be old news.     "fine dining" has been a tough sell on the lake.   Several places have tried and failed that I am aware of.

      Only fishing for crappies. With a baby at home only get a few hours after work to fish.
