What's the biggest house out there now?

5 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone noticed any of the bigger houses out on the lakes yet? I have a 8 x 19 house that I keep at a resort and was hoping to get it out tomorrow, but the owner said he couldn't put the house out yet because the houses where getting flooded and he would have to charge us extra to get it out today, because he needs to plow an open spot on the ice for the house. Which I don't get, because he will have to plow and move the house in a couple of days anyway without charging us extra because he said he would have the house out by Friday the 28th. Am I just over thinking this or does it seem like the owner would rather just put the house out when he puts the rest of the house out? Someone tell me I am not crazy.... confused.gif

The house is on the south shore..

maybe its hazard pay...there are a few pockets of slush on the south east side at least. i havent seen any of the larger wheel houses out yet on the main lake. i heard that a lot of the resorts are holding off until the 27th. a portable is a better option right now anyway because the bite is a little spotty so mobility is the key. however it is nice to use a nice warm permanent for base camp.

My buddy has several wheel houses out on the west side about 3 miles out. The biggest out is 24ft tandem wheel house. He also has a 21 ft wheel house out.

Not sure where you are out of, but we have our 24' Ice Castle as well as all our 20' houses out in Isle Bay - if you have a wheel house, you can drive right out onto our road for a $10.00 road fee. If you want a spot plowed out for your house, we'll do that for $20 - you are welcome to leave it as long as you want to - each drive out would be an additional $10 or a seasonal pass for 1 vehicle for $150.

I was out on Popes reef Saturday and saw a permanent 10x24+. It was a small trailer house looking house. I had 12" good ice and no slush on Popes. Lybacks had 2 10x16' houses out there as well as a narrow road.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
