Or it could have come loose from a snowmobile and the guy didn't realize it till later. I found one where that was the case and turned it in to a resort close by. Luckily the guy lived on the lake and went looking for it the next day and decided to stop by. I did have his DNR # off the shelter so sooner or later he was going to get it back. Anyway if you found it on a big lake its possible whomever lost it didn't back track to well.

Look for a DNR or Lic # on the shack and call a local CO.

I hate to say it but....

If a portable falls out of a truck, OK, understandable you might not realize it for a while.

If your portable releases from your snowmobile. Come on. You just lost 15% of your weight. There is a big a$$ box missing from the back. dont you ever turn around?

Thank you Tyler for making the effort to find the owner. Hopefully it wasn't stolen and abandoned. Best of luck.

thats what my guess was.. it had been there since the middle of december and its was completely buried in snow. no tracks or nothing going to it like it was just left there to root.

    • Hey everyone has anyone started to pickle yet? Just did 65 quarts of pickles over the weekend. Also did some jars with the carolina repear pepper. Can't wait to try them.

    • Does anyone eat or use mooneyes? I caught one in the St. Croix today. Nothing else, it was interesting fish!
    • I hope to take a trip to ND this season, maybe they will get first ice before we do.
    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".     
    • Can't build a taller garage when it's a tuck-under with sheet-rocked 7' ceilings!!! The truck sits up high....
    • bigger garage!!
    • Same thing here...*TWANG*  I took my big snippers to mine and screwed a black wire nut cap on the cut end. Or unscrew one from a junkyard F-150 and saw it off. Looks fine.
