Wheel House

5 posts in this topic

We put the 16 foot wheel house out with a 4 wheeler last night. We put off one of the points south of Garrison in 17 fow and was able to find 13" of ice so we should stay afloat. Fished last night and there were plenty of perch but they didnt want to eat. Did catch a 25" walleye and a slimmy eel pout. It was great to get on the big pond!

How many times did you get stuck and did you slush out.

Thanks Mike

Some nice fella plowed a road in Wigwam Bay out around the North point but we did drive through 4" of water in two spots. After that we had a plow so we avoided the slush but you had 8" in one spot and twenty feet away you had 13".

Yea the only reason I brought it up was if you are not on a road to where you want to go you are not going to pull a wheel house there with any atv. I was out this past week and could not travel anywhere without encountering some obstacle or another mostly crusted snow that you would eventually break through and have to shovel out of. Slush pockets and drifts were also a bit of a problem. After setting the house flooding can be an issue depending upon the depth of ice you are set up on. 10+ seemed to be the non flooding number for me 6.5x12 house

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
