3 posts in this topic

If i would build a 8x14 fishhouse and have retractable wheels is that to wide to drive on the road legally? or can you build the wheels inside without having to go to hydralics? Thanks for the help walleyemaster

I'm not positive but belive 8'8" is max without permiting something you may also want to check out would be marker lights I think anything 8' wide or wider needs to diplay 3 marker lights at the rear of the trailer

Walleyemaster12-
Last night I actually sat down and began to write a letter to your mother about how positive an experience building a fish house can be. The letter got rather long, and before I finished it I felt that maybe it would be too preachy to do you any good. I felt I was sticking my nose where it doesn't belong and I deleted it, but I'm glad the three of you have decided to give it a shot.
I built a shack (my first) last winter, and everytime I've used it this year I seem to pick it apart with things I plan to do different next time. I have a house that gets complimented on occasionally but I definately made my share of mistakes along the way. You would do well to learn from some of those experiences by living vicariously through the topic link "Hubcat" provided you on one of your previous questions. There are also some nifty "new" products out there who's existence I was unaware of during my project. I would include "catch covers" in my plans also if I were building a shack right now.
I have been learning a little bit about frames lately and I can help you with some of your questions. Legal width for highway use is 8'6" (102"). If you plan to have the wheels on the outside of your shack than be sure to keep them within 102" and you will be legal width. This is a law, that by all accounts I have heard, seems to get little enforcement . However, I also remember the day when having someone dig through your luggage at an airport was a rare occasion too! wink.gifLaws are for everyone, and I prefer to not have to be the one guy that law enforcement uses to set the example to the rest of the world.
If you are planning to purchase a professionally manufactured retractable frame be sure to check back to Fishing Minnesota before you buy elseware. There should be some rather exciting news for do- it -your-selfers here very soon. I'll help answer any questions I can in the future also so don't be afraid to ask.Remember to keep it fun-TROY

    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
    • Wow .. Sprinkler!!  Wonder where and when we can get one!!
    • Thanks for the advice guys...keep it coming!   Much appreciated before I make a pretty expensive investment.   Ref
    •   I stated they are better than 3/4 yrs ago compared to themselves...my point is the Wild are far from a top tier top 8 team when it counts come playoff playoff time...period...no arguing what just happened.  BB was very vocal in the Presser..."we need to get Bigger/Stronger" and Fletch missed that boat time and time again. Career Years are great personal stats...am I happy for Granlund, Staal, Nino...yes...but personal stats only gets you more personal $$, but if those stats don't translate into team goals they are all for naught....and every NHL Player will tell you that. They did exceed my reg season projection but their true colors showed losing in the first round so over all I was spot on  IMO this team will be missing more than one of these "career year" guys by the start of the new season if BB has more say...and I am getting the feeling he will be getting more say on personel.
    • We just got shut out down by Caledonia also so don't feel bad and we've been turkey hunting since 1980.  We were on private land also but found the birds still flocked up.  We had flocks of 12 - 15 birds we were trying to work and it didn't work.  2 out of 3 could have shot jakes and we all had plays that just did not work out.  That's turkey hunting.
    • I have mapped but never submitted it to be processed. However I have downloaded maps from insight and used them. They work good if your willing to go thru the extra step to download them. If I remember correctly you will have to choose them in chart options or it will just show your regular insight map. The real nice thing is they are free!   I mostly use Navionics I find I like them better than the insight maps & its easier to download user generated maps.
    • Do you know if the GPS tracker part works without cell service? I think that is going to be my biggest issue, I don't know if I can track another phone from my phone without cell signal.
    • Come on BB, you don't have to be positive or a homer to realize this team is light years better than they were 3/4 years ago. The results haven't changed, but that isn't saying they haven't improved. 3/4 years ago we had young guys like Brodin, Haula, Coyle, Nino just getting their wings. This year they had career years in many cases. That is precisely what we have been hoping/waiting for them to do. The way you talk it seems like you forget that the NHL playoffs are best of 7 series. That's a long grind for any team to make and you have to have a lot of luck and some guys playing out of their mind to make it to the finals. I'm not happy they lost in 5 to the Blues, but I'm not giving up on this team either. They do need to make changes, which will reshape this team for next season. Pump some more youth into the lineup and we could certainly have some up and down next year. Like I said before, go back and see our predictions for where they would finish at the beginning the of the season. I am pretty sure I said they would finish like 5th place. Finishing 2nd all things considered, was a pleasant surprise, but guess what, everyone whined about it! LOL
