Will pay $50 to haul house out with 4 wheeler!

7 posts in this topic

I would like to get my permanent out this weekend and would pay $50 to have somebody do it. There is a certain lake I have in mind, but I realize I cant be too fussy. Its a 6.5x12 foot converted camper. I have no idea how about the tounge weight - but its heavy! Let me know! 507-327-1548!

Hey j-nuts can you get it to the lake? I have a wheeler but could take a look and let you know if it's something the wheeler can handle. Always looking for a good challange, but the ice is iffy in spots so I will need more info. Will check post around 12am.

Do you have a crank on the tong to lower it on the ball? I have a huge floor jack, but the crank helps get it back out. What ball size does it have?

Yes I can get it to the lake. It does have a crank on the tounge - it has a 2 in ball. There is 10 inches of ice when I checked this morn - enough for the house - but not enough to pull with the pickup!

If the lake you have in mind is on the LeCenter side of mankato I'll help you out as long as the ice is not questionable. Post back if it is a go and I will call you tommorrow PM.

Use twice the length of depth so you can stay dry, oh yeah and have a VERY sharp knife handy! Good luck fellas grin.gif

The ice on the lake I want to go to is good. Its shallow where I want to put the house. There are some 8x14 huge ice castle houses already out there. I think one person was even driving a small car the other day.

      I have had good luck with a #4 red hook. About 5-6' of 10lb mono and tie the hook directly to the line. Hook the minnow along the back.

      Fished Owasso last summer for the first time since the winter kill, caught one bass in 4 hours. My wife was fishing for pan fish and didn't get a nibble. You might want to look for another lake. CW

      I use about a 6' leader of 10lb flouro tied to my main line with a small barrel swivel. As far as hooks go I don't use just one. I prefer a treble of some sort, usually a small glow spoon. If it's a single hook I lean towards bigger is better, but also in glow. Set it up at your desired depth and don't just forget about it. Check it, move it, check it, move it. You can cover a good amount of water if you aren't lazy about it. Also I use just a simple bobber tie for my depth marker instead of those little bobbers. No real reason why that's just what I'm used to. Good luck, half the fun is learning what works best for you.

      Hey everyone, picked up a frabil insulated tip up last weekend and I want to use it for a set line for walleyes when I want to set up another line in different depths. So I put about 100 years of 20 pound braid tip up line on it. My question is what do I use for my leader? I've herd mono and flouro work good but I don't know which is best? And as far as hooks go what to you guys use? Single red hook? Treble? Sure set? Thanks!
