Anyone need a fishhouse?

Recommended Posts

Here ya go, guys. An authentic freebie, no strings attached.

I've got a 4'x8' "semi-portable" fishhouse (kinda heavy) that I'm looking to just give away to someone that needs a house. It's got a 4'x8' plywood base and wood ends, with a blue tarp covering the rest. I built it 7 years ago (about $150 into it) and it's still in great condition, with the exception of the tarp which needs to be replaced (simple job - cheap fix). 4 holes staggered through the house, 4 support poles go with it, and it's got a spring on the door too.

I'm 6'3" and can stand in it no problem - it's been a great house over the years, but I got a Fishtrap 2 years ago and never used this thing afterward.

Come pick it up and it's yours. I live in St. Michael - give me a call @ 612.387.9053 or email me at [email protected] and I'll gladly answer any questions or give directions.

Have a good one,

    • Hawg go to this site. It will help you id them.  https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/    
    • It looks like you were using my cell phone to take those pics. I'm also surprised an old guy like you could stay up that late! Just kidding!
    • Thank you, looks like I have a ton of them and not the goldies, I'm kind of disappointed. There's quite a bit of difference, I must have been fooled by the yellow on the siskins. It's been a while since I had either. I'm still looking for my bird books to identify the others. It seems the older I get the better I get at hiding stuff from myself! Thanks again, Mark
    • not my pic but here is a winter goldie. pretty drab
    • pine siskins. look a lot like winter goldies just smaller
    • Eyeguy, do you have a picture of a winter goldfinch and a pine siskin? I'm not 100% sure I know the difference. Any idea what the birds are I posted about with the colored backs? Those are on the safflower seed heavy, not on the niger at all. I wish I had a lens to take a picture to show you.
    • lots of pine siskins have been moving thru here. 
    • 1.21.19 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report, NW Angle of LOW,

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      We are making ice up here at Sunset Lodge and with fresh snow coming the trails should be in great shape.

      In Minnesota, we are seeing really nice saugers mixed in with walleye in 26-29ft. Rippin raps and rattle baits are calling fish to the house during slower portions of the day. Pink and white remains the favored color combo. Work these baits aggresively as they will attract fish, mellow out as fish appear on electronics, then finesse them with a more subtle presentation to seal the deal.

      Crappies continue to come in from Canada. Electronics are key with a small presentation such as a tungsten jig with a small piece of minnow. Walleye action is hot off points and reefs on flats between 24-28 ft. 

      Until next week!
      Sunset Lodge
    • I've seen a huge uptick in birds around my place as well.  I have let the feeder go empty now because the deer get to them before the birds do but still lots of birds in the yard.
