Wheelhouses yet?

4 posts in this topic

Anyone letting trucks and wheelhouses out yet? I am planning on coming up on the 28th with my truck and 16' wheelhouse. I have the wife convinced to come and stay over night in the wheelhouse.

Stupid question, is there anyone up there that will let you put your wheelhouse on shore? That way I can fish with the portable and 4-wheeler during the day, and still sleep in our house.

I've been seeing some smaller wheel houses heading out deeper. Most houses are sitting within 1/4 mile of shore. It's still best to check with the road operaters.

I know that Hillman's has a big parking lot plowed out on the beach.

Thanks for the reply Kelly. I know you had mentioned on an earlier post that some of the light snow had blown off the lake, so how is traveling off the roads up there?

Bumpy, very bumpy. The snow has drifted and hard packed in places. Tonight the ATV would gently go through ten drifts then WHAMMO a hard one. Stop pick up your self of the ground, find all the gear that flew out of the portable and continue on.

      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!
