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

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
