Our rental fish houses are constantly being moved in order to stay on the always roaming schools of fish. Every rental of two or more nights will be put on a fresh, unfished spot. These fish houses WILL NOT be moved again for at lease two days. If you have the need to be more portable than that, your group is encouraged to bring along your own portable fish houses for those times when there are a lack of fish under your rental house.
