Is there anyone in the Duluth area that builds a good sturdy fishouse trailer and are reasonably priced? I am looking for a trailer which the wheels can crank up and the house will sit directly on the ice. General size that i'm looking for would be 8x12. Thanks.

Check out Jay Soderbloom out near Cromwell. Just Google his name and you will find lots of info. He makes some really nice light aluminum trailers and houses.

Northern Tool sells trailer frames in Duluth, and Quality fish house frames and houses are sold through Bowe taxidermy. Jay Soderbloom near Cromwell has been great to deal with as well as I have been building mine all summer. That's all I know off for local stuff.

I second what Granny said. Great houses that are light, way warm (Sray foamed) and at a great price.

Actually, yes. My nephew who is a carpenter by trade, was in the market to buy one a couple years ago. He got tired of the so-so construction and poor floor plans of ones made by others, so he made one for himself. Now, he's started building them for others. He got help from his great uncle who was a welder until he retired for the frame. Then, he installed hydraulic lifting axles, an electric panel-inverter with a heater, lights, bunks, radio, rod holders, etc. He put a stove/oven in one too. He's building his 3rd house now, and he's 8 miles north of town. Of course, he'll be after old mossy antlers this weekend, but if you want to drop in to at least look at what he's building now, with no pressure, I'm sure he'd be more than happy to let you look at what he builds. I don't mean to speak for him, but maybe he'd be interested in building one to meet your specs. He enjoys building process, doing it in the evenings after work. He's a relaxed, low key guy.

If you're interested, reply back to this post, or send an e-mail to my home mail, and I'll reply with his phone number.

I'll check back to this next week. I'm off soon to prep for the hunt this weekend too.

My home mail is - evntam AT msn.com - if you put it together right with the @ thing.

I have always had my frames built by "The Fish House Store" in Milaca,Mn. I have not had one problem with them. They have been building wheel shacks & frames for over 18 yrs. They are also the only manufacturer who will back their frames with a 10 yr warranty. I hope this helps you out.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way
    • meerkat
      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
