Ice house removal?


Dunnyboy

Recommended Posts

This may seem like a funny question this time of year but I was wondering what methods you guys use to remove a permanent from the ice? I am making a Perm/Portable and I was wondering how strong to make the part sitting on the ice. What problems have you run into? What tools and techniques work well? My house is a converted plastic shed 4x6 with a wood floor. Any thoughts or suggestions?

Head over to the Ice fishing forum, and browse through past discussions. You will find a lot of useful info. Most perm houses have either white oak skids, or steel skids. Mine has steel. The house is pulled by a big pickup. I would recommend having no part of your ice house actually sit on the ice. We use 2x4s to block up the Skids a few inches. This way the 2x4s melt into the ice, but the skids do not.

My spear Shack floor is made out of 2x2's and I've never had any problems. I use a railroad jack to lift mine up.

I needed pontoons on it last winter to float it a couple times.

MJ's is built really well if you do the framing right 2x2 floors hold up really well and it helps spearing with the house being low to the ice you can see a lot more plus it is easy to bank in and keep the wind and light out.

If your house is very light you have less chance of it sinking into the ice. (More chance of it blowing away but there are other things to do to take care of that problem)

No mater what you decide... keep it light.

That would help.

A good stout chisel you can pry with is a big help too.

      Does anyone have A 5 person sleeper ice house for rent during February 6th through the 10th?

      Police brutality is a concern right now in many areas, and everyone is working to safeguard their rights. But it is this situation itself that needs to be examined. Having knowledge of police brutality was really helpful to me. Try this at . There is a ton of information here https://supremestudy.com/essay-examples/police-brutality/ on it, which you may also examine in further detail huge learn more about. I hope it will be helpful to you

      Finding between 3-7 inches of ice around most of the st cloud area. Was on one of the bigger lakes and one of the shallower ones in our area today. On the larger lake,  lots of ice in the bays, but main lake had roughly 3 inches where I checked.  The Shallow one had right around 7 inches.  Fish bit very well on one, and not so great on the other.

      Polkiss this...   Logging is the only way out of the Smokey the Bear debacle. We've created so much fuel in the understory from fire suppression. Logging, BIGTIME may be the only answer. Top off the past century of fire suppression with now hundreds of thousands of acres of bug kill in our mature forests when as much as a bug farts, millions of acres lie waste to everything from fire, even micro organisms in the soil. Then heavy rain, or snowmelt washes away what's left...... Log Baby Log 👍👍 and flood the mills with wood, not ash.

      many thanks to you all for providing the information.  it is appreciated.

      Knowing and comprehending it myself For instance, logging has increased significantly over time. This can't possibly be permitted. I can speak for myself when I say that we now need to consider how to read about this essay [source] because I was able to learn a lot and even used this information to write a course at the university. Therefore, if anyone needs some knowledge about deforestation, it is useful from both a theoretical and practical point of view. Everyone must protect the environment!

      Welcome to the forum. Thanks for the safety tip.  Always good to know where springs in lakes are!  👍

      Ok I did not check ice thicknesses yet but green, blue, baxter, lori, and elk all had anglers on them. I hope to check thicknesses soon.
    • Cookie123
      There is also some springs in the way back of blue lake ( In nashwauk MN) If you go back there you may run into some if you go to the right or the left there is some both directions so I would suggest not going back there or if you do i would check the ice every 25ft or so at least have fun out there
