Hold your house down!!!

7 posts in this topic

Im no expert but I have learned a few tricks. I would like to share one with you. When I fish out of my portable I have some nylon plastic tye wraps zipped on my floor poles. There the black ones with th hole on the end. Then I cary sheet rock screws, and screw my house down. I have set up in 35mp winds with no snow on the ice, and have never lost my house. Hope this works for you!!!

One thing I do when there is no snow on the ice like are running into now is before I leave shore I grap a hand full of beach sand. After drilling holes and cleaning them out I sprinkle the beach sand where the house is going to sit before putting the house back over the holes, it definitely keeps it from sliding all over.

One thing that I have done, (only applicable if you can drive out) is throw a tube of sand, or two, (like the one's you buy @ Menards) in there. This has worked well, especially when I'm by myself and have to exit the house to stretch.

Check out Soderbloom Inc. sand tube ice anchors. My friends and myself love them to hold our portables down in the wind! No more moving or freezing in of the house. www.soderbloom.com.

Hmmm

Today would be a good day to think about this.

My shack is made out of a green camping tarp and is or "was" sitting out on Prior as of yesterday.

Do you ever get that sinking feeling that you should have anchored the shack...???

At least on Prior all the lakeshore is residential.....hopefully I'll get a call when it ends up in somebody's backyard.

Sailing anyone??

I have seen alot of portables blowing around out on Prior. Kind of funny to watch those things tumbling across the ice.

    • Good luck Anyfish2. Saw quite a few out in the rain driving home today    
    • Well, i will try my hand at picking up another bird for the team starting tomorrow.  Weather looks to be challenging at best over the next 7 days.  I will give my best effort when i can get out.   Birds are still hanging around the area well,  hopefully i can get a tom to break from the Hens.  
    • and this?   
    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   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
