Man makes truly portable fish house

PALMER, Minn. – A Foley man who has built hundreds of fish houses is getting some weird looks over his latest creation – especially when it gets up and walks across Lake Julia.

Dave Novak has designed a fish house that can be moved while the angler is still inside.

The 60-pound house is 42 inches wide by 60 inches long and allows the user to move between several fishing holes without the trouble of tearing down and setting up a collapsible house.

A partial floor inside has enough space for a small heater and two buckets to hold gear and fish. And windows give him a view of the terrain as he moves.

He says he’s gotten some weird looks, as people see his fish house moving across the lake.

But Novak says the only disadvantage is that the more fish you catch, the heavier the house gets to carry.
