GONE: 10 or 12 white screen/storm windows, good shape

7 posts in this topic

I am getting new windows, and won't need screen windows anymore. These are the white exterior windows like Menards etc. have for about $30-$40 each. I don't have sizes, but they would be perfect for anyone needing them for their home, or a cabin or hunting shack. Not insulated type at all. They just screw right on from the outside. One has a slight dent in screen frame, but the rest are perfect.

Will be available in about 2-3 weeks. I am in White Bear. I hate to see them go into dumpster, as I payed plenty a couple years ago for the same thing for at the cabin.

edit: It is hard to see, but they are the same type as in my little avatar pic... smile.gif

Hey BOX,

Are they all the same size or various sizes?

Could you list the sizes? I might be interested.

See you at Thorne on Saturday.

There are 5 that are: 47x28

5 that are: 55x28

And three upstairs (only two of the white, the other is bare alum) and I "think" they are 55x28

One 55 has a slight crack on the lower window, and one 47 has a slightly bent screen frame, but still keeps bugs out, etc.

I think I might still have an alum frame 55x28 in the garage as well, but not sure.

I wish I had a use for them, they are all good... but if you can use them that would be great!

Hi Paul,

They are the combination windows - top and bottom windows with those finger latches on bottom, and bottom windows that slide up and "catch" at various intervals, with screen on the bottom half. The kind that many older homes have outside of the single pane sash windows to help with drafts and to keep rain and dust out when closed, but when opened keep bugs out with the screen on bottom.

I do have another "aluminum" color in the garage, so total of 14 windows, though the one in garage is a bit beat up, the rest are actually all real good.

I am heading up north Oct. 6th, so could theoretically even drop them off for you - sometimes I go up 169, sometimes over 18 and around the pond on the north side. Just depends upon when I have the windows replaced.

I'd also add that they are in good enough shape that other than some dirt or dust, they are in good enough shape to honestly say "like new", with the exceptions noted above on the two windows. I can take pics tomorrow if you want to see them on my house.

edit: these are not the windows from my house, but the same exact ones that I bought new and put on my cabin, just for reference - I think theonly pics I have handy:

Box,

I'll take them. Let me know once yours get in and we can figure out how I can get them.

Sounds good Paul. I will let you know when they are ready. My buddy is coming out Tuesday to talk more about the siding, so that will be the last thing to decide on (lots of hail damage...) before he starts.

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.

      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks
