(since there's good, there has to be) BAD NEWS

28 posts in this topic

Tight Budget + X-mas + Saving $ to build a new fishouse + Stupid, Stupid cars = A whole bunch of words I can't type on here.

Can anyone guess whose car had the a/c bearing lock up, the starter burn out, and the serpentine belt break this week?

NorthernDave......We may have to go back to the drawing board on my new shack to see where I can save some ching.

Sounds like someone I know confused.gif. New transfer case before heading to lake of the woods. Then there was the set of 8 injectors before my spring trip to low last year. So I am almost scared to drive my truck up there grin.gif.

Walleyejon, I sure would like to help you out in your endevor. If you were to sit inside of your Otter, we would gladly cover it with Great Stuff foam. Sawsall wielding Northerndave could cut you an excape hole & you would have your permanent igloo house.

a chainsaw is really more my style, but what ever.

also household appliances come in very large boxes..... maybe go trolling behind the closest appliance store for a new fish house? they throw them away all the time.

ever see some of the jackpine "triple wides" on the way to the lake?

some duct tape & a dozen refrigerator boxes & we'd be stylin!!

seriously!! we can cut windows with a steak knife, we can put a great big chunk of used carpet down on the ice for a floor & build up from there with refrigerator boxes & duct tape.

this is gonna be the best fish house ever!!!!

Twisted,

Since you know I have an Otter, I must assume that you also know me, and since you are offering to work with ND, I must also assume you are, as your name implies very Twisted. That being said, I must point out the glaring omission in your "plan". Nowhere do you mention what kind or how much of a cache of survival bait and beverages you will supply me with while I'm waiting for you two redneck engineers to finish the job.

I would actually expect you to supply the so called "cache" or as I was imagining a large box of adult beverages as a gesture of good will to ensure your timely exit from the walleyedome.

walleye dome, that sounds nice.

I have an old 4 person dome tent at home that i could donate, let's just foam spray that.

like a big foam egg shell.

we could paint it like a big easter egg.

How about that car of yours Walleyejon? Could we just have that foamed. Sounds like it's not going to be much good for transportation anymore.

There. Two birds with one stone!

Any other issues that you need taken care of?

who's gonna tell his wife that the car is a fish house now?

we'll have to tear the dash out so we have room to jig up front. 2 holes in each floor board area?

you got XM in that thing?

we don't care about the AC, does the heater still work?

I call shotgun!!

Thanks for all the support....I need a shotgun...although that spray foaming the tent idea has some merit. You guys stand inside and hold the tarp out, and I'll run the gun. Then, purchasing those adult beverages would be my pleasure. I'll have as many as you'ld like waiting for you if.....I mean when you get back outside.

Dr. Evil: Can I have a hug?

walleyejon: No.

Dr. Evil: Give me a hug.

walleyejon: No way.

Dr. Evil: Come on. Let's go. Pronto.

walleyejon: What are you doing?

Dr. Evil: I'm with it. I'm hip. Well, don't look at me like I'm friggin' Frankenstein! Come here and give Dr. Evil a hug.

walleyejon: Get away from me, you lazy-eyed psycho!

[Dr. Evil runs after him with his arms out]

Dr. Evil: Hug, hug, hug.

You got a deal walleye jon, but it had better be the cheapest, nastiest beer money can buy, and no cold stuff either or the deal is off!!

I agree 100%. I'm easy to negotiate with but I won't budge an inch if these expectations aren't met.

All righty then you sons-of-low-down-dirty-beer-drinkers. I'll have some hidden-in-a-teenager's-closet-for-monthes aged Blatz shipped up from my old stompin' grounds in Wisconny, and we'll get this party started.

A spray foamed igloo style house is the way to go! grin.gif

I can fish in mine at -30 with a buddy heater on low, and be in a t-shirt. Wind can be howling outside, and can't even hear it.

Hope to get it on the ice tomorrow.

OH NO! We don't want this thing too warm. I just had a vision af Walleyejon stripped down to his skivvies in his super-warm walleye dome. shocked.gif It'll take more than a box of the Blatz to stomach that.

But all kidding aside, a 16' diameter foam dome would be a neat way to go. Two halves that bolt together at the lake so it could be hauled without overwidth permits. I'll drink, I mean think on that tonight & submit any ideas that make it through the alcohol cleansing to Walleyejon tomorrow.

Well this is my first time posting, I don't know where yous guys get all the money for that cardboard. We gotta use that on the house windows during the chillin' time. I do have a suggestion though, I have discarded Spam tins. Ya fill them with snow and stack 'em up. If you don't clean them before you fill them, the left over jelly helps them stick together. Let me know what you think.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
