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.

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option

    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
