Thread: Must have for fishermen

    Must have for fishermen

    Here is a neat setup for fishermen.
    One could start now and be ready for winter.

    You got to see what is inside, all the comforts one could wish for.



    Here are the rest of the pictures, click on pictures
    for a large view it will be worth your time.

    That looks like a nice portable man-cave to my eye. Not that I'm in any way a fisherman, despite my father and grandfather's best efforts. Lot of work in that shed, bet it gets used during the summer as a 'get-away' in the back yard too.

    I like the look of the satellite dish, thinking about that for my shop, either that, or stealing a tap from the house for entertainment out in the shop. Depends on the final location of the shop, if I put it where I'm thinking of now, I'll pull a line, if it goes where I"ve got pics up, it gets its own dish.

    He is obviously either 1. Single or 2. Doesn't get along well with his wife!!

    Would have been fun to design and build but good grief!! Only thing missing was the sensors on the rods to trigger the reel to wind it's self up when the fish bite!

    Now I am wondering about you Ned. Thought you were building a wood shop? You need entertainment in your shop??

    Thinking the music and the woodworking were pretty entertaining.

    Directv pipes XM's radio feed, so I need a receiver out in the shop to get 'free' XM radio.

    Plus, I'll need a TV to watch my New Yankee Workshop tapes!

    I once had to spend about a week on business in Fon Du Lac, Wisconsin. Nice town and nice folks there. But, this was summer and all anybody wanted to do was talk about ice fishing. All winter they just ice fish. All summer they sit around talking about ice fishing. Can we say "obsessed" boys and girls?

    Frank,
    while I'm sure we all have other passions, wouldn't the nice folks in Fon du Lac wonder about our focus on woodworking? I know my wife does at times. Just the other day she banished my woodworking mags from the reading room. (all but a few). I suppose she had a point, but there were only enough for a 1' tall stack.

    To small my Lobster won't fit inside that small shack!!

    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    So...do you take your lobster ice fishing often?

    That's quite a fishing shack, Bob. If I were ice fishing, I'd want that level of amenities. Unfortunately, it'd get mighty wet using that thing here in Southern California (unless it floats).
