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

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.

      Thanks All.   No big plans this weekend and and the weather has been putting a damper on outdoor projects and choirs.    Still I might sneak out for a few hours this weekend.

      In and around narrows is where most people were fishing.  Lots of fish under 14 though.

      I guess I will have to call the dnr about the couple spots I am in question of. Ones a darn and you can easily pick them off all day almost year round

      Thanks for the great report.  We fished up there all last week, and we found shiners to be the only bait we *couldn't* get bites on. Very, very strange, but by far our best bite was on crawlers.  I think our total was something like 8 fish on shiners and 80 or 90 on crawlers (between two boats).  We didn't start fishing with crawlers until Thursday, either, so all those fish came on our last two days, with the windier Thursday being best.
