Need a Solution for Deep Snow Conditions

Recommended Posts

I am finishing off my 7' X 9' fishouse. it sits atop 2" X 8" runners with conduit afixed to the bottom. It should move very nicely on bare ice or a few inches of snow covered ice. However, when the time comes to pull it off the lake for the season, I anticipate a pretty big drift near the shore of my cabin. Does anyone have any ideas for how to adress the need to get this little behemoth up and over the drifts and on to the shore? Thanks

any way to get out there an plow a path? that can be a tough one - last year we resorted to a truck with chains and pulled a snowmobile trailer out to the shack. Loaded the shack onto the trailer and muscled it back to the landing through 18" of slush and 1-2' of snow.

If you can get one or two damaged car or truck hoods from a body shop,they really work nice.I got a couple from work and jacked up the front of the fish house,then we just sat the front back down on them and it slid great!We didn't even have to secure them in any way.Just be sure they stick out in the front a little bit.

Dan, I like your ingenious use of old car hoods. I could probably pick up a couple and paint them with a home made camo finish. They could lay in the woods near the cabin in the off season without giving the place the appearance of a junkyard, excuse me, automotive recycling center. Thanks for the reply.

Old car hoods make great sleds! Just wax it up and away we go! Weeee!!!

If you are worried about the ice shack falling off the hood, you could probably strap it down somehow.

    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
    • Very nice. You need to start making Youtube fishing videos with them now like #fish_time does with his kids!  😀 You can tell their fishing with Dad and not Mom.  Did you help your daughter with her boots Dad? 😄
    • Had a couple hours, so I brought my 2 younger kids out to enjoy the nice afternoon. River is a little high yet, but still pretty cloudy. I guess it was flooded pretty good yesterday. Rain must have washed in lots of food, because every trout had a big fat belly. I caught 5, and my son caught 1 (all browns). All of them on a largemouth bass colored husky jerk, which is my new favorite trout lure. Me and the kids finished the day covered in mud, and had a great time!    
    • Seeing whats working for everyone using decoys for mn. opener. My new whiteface DSD jake had 2 toms come in for my 10 year old grandson, Jeffrey. Whats working for everyone else? When using hen/jens only decoys, how do you set them and what do you use etc. Like upright and feeder???? Just seeing.
