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.

    • Watch their interference disappear when you shut your marcum off 🤨
    • Rick was going to start that topic right after this one slowed down! 😅
    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
    • Go to Milaca unclaimed Freight and for the pulley 8to 1 lift. Cheap and easy
