Fish House and generators

Recommended Posts

Chad Luebker

Hello -

I have a fish house made by King Crow and I am looking to purchase a generator. However, the fish house has 2 plugins on the outside. One is for 12V and the other is for 110V. Both outlets are females(ends). So when you want to hook it up to a generator how does everyone do that? The generators have a female end also and the extension cord obviously only has one male end. I should maybe contact King Crow because if they make that 12V outlet standard you think they must have a cord? So? Do they make generators that have male ends or what does everyone do? Thanks for your help.

For connection of generator to house---- the cheapest option is to just cut off the female end of the extension cord and replace with a male end. But, this is what I did with the same issue so I did not ruin the whole 50' extension cord. I made my own male to male cord by going to the local harware store (very similar to Runnings) and bought 3' of 12 guage power cord, they sell it by the foot off a roll. Then bought 2 male cord ends, put the ends on the cord and it was ready for use between the house and extension cord. Total cost--$5 to $10 give or take.

Sounds like Lunker has the best bet for you. The only other thing you could do is replace the outlet on the outside of your house to a male outlet. I wonder why King Crow hasn't figured that out yet...A Honda EU2000 would be your best bet for a generator. If you only use your generator for charging your batteries and watching TV, you could get away with a Honda EU1000. But if you use any small appliances, (coffee maker, microwave, griddle) it will probably kick out...just break down, spend the $950 and buy yourself the Honda EU2000...I did a ton of research when I bought mine and nothing compares to it.

Hope this helps!

When you use your Honda Generator (by far the easiest to listen to if I am your neighbor on the ice) please, please, please, put a piece of carpet in the box or tailgate of your truck and put the generator there instead of on the ice.

I have had this affect the fishing on Red Lake so I find it hard to believe it will not affect "normal" fishing on the "southern" lakes as well. Especially when fishing in 15-20 ft. (or less) of water.

I'm just sayin.......

I already do that roughneck...Sometimes I will rough it in my house and not run the generator at all...That sucks! Boy we (I) have it rough these days don't we (I)...We (I) complain about not being able to watch Satellite TV while out on the middle of a frozen lake!

Chad...aka...roughin it.

walleye-

Chad are you sure that one of those two plugins is for 110v. I to have a king crow and it had plugins but they where only for 12v. I had to wire in 110v. Maybe they do put it in factory now but I looked at there we site and nothing is said about 110v in there houses just 12v. But I would assume you know what youv'e got just making sure.

Hi Walleye,

I am sure because the guy I bought it from wired it himself for 110V. Thanks for your concern. I appreciate it.

Would LOVE the Honda 2000 but I don't know if I can afford it. You can buy a generator at Northern Tool for $250 - So I could buy almost 4 of those generators for the price of a Honda....

walleye-

yeah but how much more gas are you going to go though the honda runs all night on a gallon. So of those cheap ones are loud and only get 3-6 hours per gallon.

call Beisswenger's in New Brighton. They advertise on a different minnesota fishing site and they have had some very fair deals.

Find a ad from anywhere and bring it to Gander Mountain. They'll match it and if you take the credit card out you get the ten percent discount plus with a little more purchases on the card you'll get a twenty five dollar voucher for in store purchases. I know this because we did this about a year ago. Get the Honda 2000 it is really quiet and is very fuel efficent. I got my ad in the Outdoor News!

      Any recent fishing reports for Frazer/Smarts Bay area. Didn't fish much last weekend (maybe four hours), but it was REALLY slow for me. First time I haven't keep a keeper in quite some time. Depths, technique and bait choice would be welcomed!

      Fins - same for me yesterday.  Fished three hours in the evening last night.  Pretty big wind still at 7pm.  Caught 5 walleye (all dinks) and a northern.  I went out for two hours this morning, mainly graphing.  Stopped near Cranberry Island and caught one 15 inch for dinner.  Will go out again this evening for advanced scouting.  Big group coming up over the 4th of July and they are expecting to catch fish.  Maybe i'll have to reset expectations...

      I do not target smallies, but I do run across them when fishing shallow, rocky areas, typically along the shore and back in the small bays.  The ones we have caught were nice and strong, running from 19 to 21 inches.  Good Luck.

      At least a decade ago, I was fishing in Head O Lakes west off Taylors Island when I got a heavy snag in 35ft. I kept pulling up what felt like a log until it appeared at the surface. It was the underwater power line that I think runs out to the island where everyone fishes muskies. I carefully unhooked my jig and let the line fall back into place in the lake.   I'll keep an eye out for your prop!

      I called the Soudan Mine today and was told that you can't leave your boat at the landing in Stuntz Bay. She said that it was "strongly frowned upon" and that she wasn't aware of any way to boat to the mine. Maybe that will be something that happens in the future.

      That middle picture looks like a decent size bluegill.    When my kids were little like that, it was the bluegills that kept them interested in fishing

      Went out of Duluth and found some cleaner water. Got two right away on a 57 Chevy Jim’s flashback spoon trolled  behind a small Dipsy diver.  After that, absolutely nothing more. Feeling discouraged, I went into the bay  in an attempt to redeem myself and trolled crawler harnesses behind small planer boards and picked up some walleyes.    That’s one of the benefits of living near Lake Superior.. You can troll out on the lake and catch lake trout and salmon and just a boat ride away puts you on some great walleye fishing  without having to trailer your boat again

      Without fishing in my life, I'd never get to see sights like this sunrise on one of my favorite smallie lakes. This was my second lake of the day already this morning.😁

      Fished for a few hours this afternoon after the rain went through and the wind died down a bit. Tried a good dozen places in between black bay and the Brule and only got around 10 fish for the effort. The water was still pretty much ice cold at a cool 65 degrees in the main lake. We checked a few off shore reefs and saw zero signs of life on the ones we checked. The places we did get a few fish was were there was a rock to mud transition near shore on points. All in all another tough outing for us and on a side note, on the way in we pulled cranks in shallow water and the May flys were thick on the surface on the wind blown side.

      I fished at the Forbes canoe access below the dam one day. And caught a 16 inch on a fly. I will give it a float and report back after the fourth
