Permanent house get together

10 posts in this topic

Every season, there are many people interested in ideas for their permanent house. I propose we have a permanent house get together sometime this season on a metro lake. Of course, the best part of this would be, unlike the portable mod show, we can fish at the same time!

Anyone with a drop down or other type of perm. house willing to join? I know I'm interested in seeing what others have come up with for their layouts and design, and I'm sure other permanent owners feel the same. I think this could be a lot of fun!

Whatcha think? Anyone interested?

Could be interesting but I couldn't see pulling my house to a metro area lake when there are so many great lakes to choose from in Central MN.

Dont get me wrong here... I fish out of a friends perm all of the time... So go with me....

Isn't every time you go out to your shack a "get together" with the rest of the guy's in shanty town? I am always looking around when I go to visit other shacks.

Just a different perspective perhaps.

I guess the idea is to have a bunch of people with perms get together in one location to check out everyone's ideas. Pictures are great, but don't give you the feel of the house, space, and feel.

When I'm on the lake, I don't find myself going to each house asking if I can take a quick peek. Some people don't have a problem doing that, some do. This would open up several houses to those that wouldn't.

Anyway, it was just a thought. Again, after seeing so many threads from people looking for ideas on building, buying, and laying out a perm, it seems like a good idea.

With theft seeming to be the norm for unattended permanent houses, I really don't want anyone to see the inside of my house. I prefer to keep the inside of my house private among friends so other's don't know what can be looted. I don't suspect others at my house to be crooks, but word of mouth travels pretty fast about the amenities various houses have in them.

I would agree with this statement, the only unnanounced visitor that is welcome at my house is the MN DNR. If this were my home and somebody knocked on the door and I wasn't expecting company I usually won't even get off the couch. In this day of cell phones stopping by unnanouced is unacceptable.

So if I was fishing close to you and my matches got wet or my lighter was out of fuel and I came by to see if you could help a guy out you would deny me because I did not call ahead? confused

In my oppinion that kind of thing happens all of the time. I am not saying you should let everyone in have a seat etc. But I think it is good karma to at least open the door. Especialy in shanty town. If you are out by yourself I could see that being "trolling for goodies". But out with the group????

Holy Cow! Looks like a lot of guys take themselves pretty seriously.

Anyone and everyone is welcome at my house or my fish house. I don't leave anything in it that any of you would want to take the time to steal anyway.

I might show up to something like this if it were on a south or west metro lake like say Waconia.

I would always be willing to help a fellow fisherman out, please don't get me wrong there.

I typically only bring my house out on the larger lakes and I will almost always setup a great distance away from any others, typically a few hundred yards away if possible.

I will usually drive cross country on the lake and plow myself a small area with the atv to attempt to keep away from the crowds whenever possible.

In reference to "calling ahead" and "not answering the door" I was referencing my home not my fishouse

    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   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
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • 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?
