another fish house question...

4 posts in this topic

my son has a 14' house and the only way he gets it out before you can drive is with the ATV. He still waits until around 10 " of ice considering there is some respectable weight to be dealt with. In the meantime its portable fishing. The lake it is set up on near St Cloud doess not have a resort to help out with the movement on or off. Bill

Some great ready, I bet everything you want to know is in here.

I have an 8'x16' house, not sure about the weight, but all aluminum except for the frame. I pull it out with my ATV and I have had it out on 7" of ice, and wouldn't be reluctant to do it again!

Don't know of anyone that will keep an eye out for your house. due to the risk. But if you're building a new house and have a 4-wheeler, build the house so you can drive in and haul it. I wished our house had that option, I would use it all the time, especially when I no longer have a truck.

I'm thinking of building a drop down house, probably 14'. Question is when could you typically expect to get this on the ice in the metro area?? It doesn't seem as though I'd have a wheeler along while pulling a house... How do you get it out there before you can drive? Do the resorts do this for a little extra income? Any good resorts in the metro that will help out as far as looking after the shack while your not around? I've always used portables, but looking at building a shack in the next couple years as I have a new fishing partner on the way and I don't think it will be easier on a youngster..

    • It the particular case of the poor integration of immigrants in Sweden and the EU in general, that information is publicly available and has been for some time, so probably isn't something the Intelligence folks are making a point of.   Likewise, the mainstream media doesn't seem to be making much of it.      On the other hand, we have the reports in the media that the Intelligence folks have allegedly stopped telling Trump stuff.   What are they allegedly not telling him?   Are they deliberately trying to make him fail?          
    • This has probably been beaten to death on here but....after the recent trip to Winnipeg and driving on rough ice all weekend, I'm reconsidering the auger mount on my ATV.  I have one of the Kolpin ones right now that is 2 thinner pieces of metal that stand up off the front rack.  The only way to hold the auger in is with bungees and the metal is thin and wears on the auger at the contact points.   I'm thinking I could work some 2x6's or something into a decent mount for fairly cheap.     Anybody have pics of a homemade one?   Or anybody recommend the Digger mount?  
    • So how did you get the livewell overflow out? We've had some problems with ours & have toyed with the idea of replacing it. We don't really want to tear all the floor up though. 
    •   Yeah., just not the same as Frankie. Try typing in all CAP'S!
    • Not last year but the year before that we had one that followed us all through deer season.  He would hop up on our knee while we were sitting there, and the little bastard would grab my glove and try to run off with it.  He was almost dinner many nights.
    • Saw this topic and the link to Rock Auto. I ordered up left and right headlight assembly's for my 04 Suburban. They fit right in and even included bulbs. $58.00 to the door delivered for the pair. Cannot beat the price and quality looks fine- better than the old dump I replaced.  Now do I replace the daytime running lens assembly's and fog lamps? Ordered on Thursday and delivered on Saturday 2 days early.
    • They have the 20% off sale(some exclusions) going on this week at Gander. Just need the code from the page, though Rogers just uses one at the counter, so I didn't need it. They got more fishing stuff out now, so I loaded up on some Missle Destroyers!
    • I got the TYC Fog light installed last week. Worked good and looks better than the busted out one! I would of done it months ago if I knew it was that cheap and easy to do.
    •     Oh stop it. How was I to know? You'll just get Dell all fluffed up again and we'll turn THIS into another sillytown.
    • There are a few places to stay that are not too far from the lake.  Hamilton House in Winnipeg Beach is good, a lot of guys stay at the Casino on the East side,  there is a new hotel in Selkirk that is pretty nice and has lots of rooms and breakfast.     Nobody plows roads.  We always watch the weather and snow depth before we go.  We have been lucky to only have to bring ATVs with wheels up there.  Eventually we will have to deal with some deep snow though and bring sleds or tracks up.     There are a few guides that run around on the lake.  Lee Nolden and Blackwater Cats are the 2 I know of.  From what I hear they are pretty accomadating and have all the necessary gear.
