Maiden Voyage


Recommended Posts

Paul Waldowski

I know that alot of FM'ers have been following the building of this Fishhouse and it went on its Maiden Voyage earlier this week. Thought I would share a few photos. It actually pulled alot easier than even we thought, there were many that shook there head and thought it wouldn't move at all grin

House is 18x28, has 22 holes and sleeps 12.

Truck is a 1964 International 2 Ton with a 304.

Blocking consists of putting blocks under the skids, so the skids don't freeze down to the ice. This one is blocked up 6 inches and is doing fine.

Thats Awesome!!

18 x 28 = 500 sq. ft. of Ice Shack!!

Guy could really cover the top of a rockpile with that thing. Wouldn't have to worry about folks moving in on you either.

I saw that bad boy when I was up there. The beds are nice. There's plenty of room, phone chargers. The TV wasn't in at that time. What size did you put in there Paul?

Well, needless to say..."Incredible"!! The Ice Hilton as I refer to it is absolutely wonderful!

From the the heater set on it's lowest setting, keeping the house warm enough for shorts and T's, to the LED lighting above every pair of holes..this baby is meant for fishing out of!

27 Inch TV/DVD, Micro-wave, stove bunks...etc and holes completely around the exterior. Each hole equipped with it's own rattle wheel as well. Talk about ammo!

Once again my wife out fished me..and my kids were introduced to Mille Lacs. Sort of...a bit cushy for a first go round.

Paul, you always are and have been a gentlemen and a concerned operator! Thanks for making our stay a positive one!!!!

Now get out and nail a few for yourself!!!
