Steps for a fish house

Question

Shwangman

I have a friend that purchased a fishing on skids and to get in the door is a leap of 10" - 14" and she was wondering where to she could buy the stairs or steps to get into her fish house. Thanks.

If fabrication is an option....

Depending on how large she wants the stair, a couple green treat 2x6's and a few nails may do the trick. You could build it to span half of the existing rise and as "deep" and wide as she desires. It would be easy to store in the off season as well. Just tuck it inside the house.

A quick tip for ya... Wood may get a bit slick in the winter.. Mounting a few strips of anti-skid material would be some good insurance from a slip and fall...

Shwang,

I would thing a shipping pallet would work great! Snow will stomp off pretty well also.

talking about the staris being slippery in the winter buy some grip tape that they put on kids skateboards you can purchase it at lockal skate shopes like zumes and some other ones i use it on my weal wells coves on my boat trailer so i can climb in with out slipping works really well.

Shwangman,

Have her get a hold of a printing co. We use half skids that come in a variety of heights that work perfect for a little step. I use them on my camper all the time.

If she is in the Minneapolis area or Lino area I can set her up.

Mike

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!
