Nu Way Stove Shanty heater

beer batter


A bit odd to be thinking ice fishing during the hottest spell in nearly 20 years but...

Anybody have any experience using a Nu Way heater in their permanent fish house? They look pretty good and cost just over $100. I was looking at the model 3000.

Looking for how easy the pilot is to light. Any issues with the flame blowing out or just generally good or bad experiences with them.

I had one in a spear shack at one time. Those stoves have an open bottom which I'm not crazy about and they burn the air in the shack. Also mine didn't have a thermocouple but I think the newer ones do.

Glad to hear somebody is familiar with this manufacturer at least.

I'm not too concerned about the open bottom or burning air as I ventilate quite a bit. The main reason I'm looking at it is for the thermocoupler so I know they've got those.

Was it at all difficult to light the pilot? I don't think it has one of those piezo lighters so I assume you have to go in with a match or lighter - is that correct? Do you have to reach way in on all fours, or is the pilot in a position easily reachable?

Also did it seem to keep the shack warm and stay lit under windy conditions?

Mine doesn't have a thermocouple so I can't comment on how friendly they are to light. The newer stoves have a thermocouple and no pilot light. Yes you'd have to light with a match.

The stoves are small and simple with a low efficiency so you lose a good bit of hot air out the vent. I used a damper on mine to get more heat out of it.

I didn't have a problem with the burner blowing out but on a windy day did notice the flames flickering. I'd follow the venting instructions to the letter. Be sure your pipe outside it 2' above the highest point on your shack and its vertical. You'll have to buy a Low Pressure Regulator Kit along stove pipe. You'll need a 6" hole for proper air supply. When I sleep in a heated shack a CO detector is a must and with this type stove with no outside air supply I'd have a detector for day use as well.

If I was looking to heat a sleeper shack I'd look for something with else with its own outside air intake like a camper furnace.

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.

      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?
