should i be worried???

Recommended Posts

a buddy of mine was at the lake today and he saw a 2 4 wheelers circling my fish house (very close) after dark. He thought it was just the dnr cuz they were out checking but then he saw the 4 wheelers load up into a big white moving van. is this something i should be worried about as far as maybe someone scoping out my house for something to steal?

Could just be people looking to see who's house it is. I drive by people's fish houses all the time. Keep an eye on it but I wouldn't be too worried.

i am one of the most paranoid people when it comes to stuff like that. like when i was a kid and id hear a noise at night i would have a baseball bat in my room or my daisy in the closet and i would always go to check it out. if it were me, i would be worried, but thats me and thats how i roll.

I had someone stick a wonder bar through my door trying to get the clasp loose last year and they stole everything out of the fish house next to mine shocked.gif. I would find out who they are and ask them some questions. Just my 2 cents. Good Luck

I'd be worried. Who hauls there 4 wheelers around in a big moving van? Did your friend get a license number? Maybe call the DNR and tell them about it and see what they think.

If they were out there with wheelers and a moving van, I think I would be worried. Why would they have a moving van on the ice??

If you don't mind, can I ask what they were doing. Just doesn't sound like something the DNR would do.


I have seen the DNR do just that many times on Vermilion.

They are checking for the owners name, then they GPS the spot and return after the house is removed. If there is any garbage or other junk on that site, the owner will get a citation in the mail! tongue.gif

Hey, that's great if the DNR are able to send citations out for litter left at the shanty site. It's too bad they don't have an efficient system like that in the open water seasons. Tired of seeing the trash washed up on the banks, it seems especially bad on the rivers these days.

Its been years since me and some friends had a permanent house we'd leave on the ice but when we did we'd leave it open and take everything with us. It was a little more time consuming each time but we saw too many houses getting robbed and stuff stolen.

Glad to hear it was just the DNR poking around though. I think its great that people on here can keep an eye out and post susicious activity. Anything to keep the bad seeds under control is always helpful.

What a GREAT job, my DREAM job. I would love to be a DNR agent. I don't know about sufficient proof of a person leaving garbage behind to stand up in court if a person were to fight a citation. Kinda like stoplight cameras-someone runs a stop light and gets a ticket in the mail based on their license plate #- well, people have been known to borrow their car out to people from time to time, and I would have to say prove it was ME running that light. People do loan out their house and/or move them before seasons up, someone else can plop theirs where mine was.

    • A 12v camera with light available from Tomtop out of China $70 with 65 ft cable on reel. Its color HD resolution 1000tvl better than 720p used by Marcum & Aquavu HD units. (Except latest Marcum 1020p latest camera $650). Only drawback, it takes 20 to 30 days and $6 shiping. Link to Tomtop camera. They off a lot of camera options so you may want to da a bit of searching. https://m.tomtop.com/p-y3578-15.html?currency=USD&Warehouse=CN&aid=gplausyly&mid=10000018477&utm_source=SEM&utm_medium=Google Adwords&utm_campaign=TT_PLA_YLY&utm_content=2945&gclid=Cj0KCQiAxs3gBRDGARIsAO4tqq3wBcNnVRFIUf2QknDLs18FF6NrhJ9raJW9BAdaowvDD1gw08q_abwaAilBEALw_wcB Pic simple wire diagram.

    • Another month and it will be 12 years on here for me - and I might’ve been posted topless once in all that time. 🕺
    • I been single for 4 years now!!  well almost...  after the wife passed away I stayed single..  somehow that changed the last few months!!!  🤣
    • Looking to get a camera for nothing but connecting to the ice house TV.  Want good resolution and color for kids. What's the best economical solution? Thanks, EJ  
    • Dang, this thread has been an eye opener.  And here I only ignored my wife for 10 years, it's funny some of you are still married!   🤣
    • need to win on home ice, no matter how good they are. seems as though we lost our home ice advantage, looks like we may be getting the home cooking working again.
    • congrats on the 10 years. I got curious how long I have been here, I hit 16 years last month, I can't believe its been that long. 🤓
    • Looking fabulistic grainbelt!! How long did you let em swim in the marinade anyhow??
    • Great advice and sounds like you have had some great times on the great Upper Red Lake!  The difference on Red from having a good day to a great day can be as much as moving 20 feet away!  From what you explain I would try to befriend a local or rent an ice auger and bring with the cold gear.  Rent your house like you are and then throw the auger in the car and explore or just pop holes in the area of your house so you can get out enjoy the uniqueness of fishing outside and your chances for landing more fish increases greatly opposed to hard house fishing.  Good Luck!!
    • I have been here a good 17 years and I think there is only about 1 guy left here that I have met in person. Back in the day I knew and met several members who were frequent posters on FM. I met quite a few of them through the BP Catfish League but I think most of those guys are long gone.
