Abandoned Portable Shack on Lake

Recommended Posts

I've noticed a homemade portable that has been blown accross the lake and laying on its side for 2 weeks now. I've checked it out and it has no markings. I'm kind of thinking this is fair game to take off the lake. Am I out of line thinking this or should it stay?

I'd say it's fair game, supprised no one has grabbed it yet. If you want to be a nice guy, you could tell the local bait shops you found it and see if it gets claimed. I wouldn't mention it's a homemade one, see if whoever claims it can describe it. If no one legit comes around, you know it's yours fair and square. Am I being too much a boyscout with that train of thought?

Absolutely NOT! You never know why, or, what happened for the guy/gal to leave it out there. I would definetly let the bait shop know about it and possibly post something on a message board (to reiterate sandmannd). Obviously without a description. Then hang on to it. Using it while in your possession may cause issues, but, if you pointed out that you have it posted as missing, they would be more than happy just to get it back.

IMO, A person can never be accused of being too much of a boyscout...On the other hand, I would not want to be on the opposite side of this comment.

Give it a reasonable amount of time, if no one claims it, it is yours. When I was younger, a buddy and I found a boom box style radio, we did not want to be called thieves, so we brought it to the cop shop, we were told after 30 days if no one claimed it, it would be ours. So, we went back to the cop shop on the 31st day. With a new stereo to listen to while fishing, and, a clear conscience to enjoy it.

    • 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.
