Be careful what you ask for

A friend was up last weekend and told me a house sunk to the roof at one end after he insisted that the resort put it out for him. i was told the bill was $4000 to get it out. Another house had the ice sag and had 2 ft of water inside. The owner was able to jack the house up and out of the water. Also a report that Dickies had 2 houses torched, not sure how much dammage was done but with all the wood in a fishhouse I would expect not too much left.

Didn't hear about the sinking houses but watched one of Dickies rentals burn New Years eve real close to my perm out of Liberty Beach, not much left. The fire Dept. showed up drilled a hole in the Ice and pumped water on it

Why isn't there a need to post where the houses sank? I would think it'd be nice to know areas of thin ice.

Was there anyone in the houses? Were they vacant? Anyone hurt? Years ago I purchase a CO2 detector and bring it with no matter who I rent from. It has gone off a couple of times over the years. I would highly recommend anyone renting a house bring a detector with them.

My feelings are that there is no need to post bad press against a resort owner. I personally know the owner and have fished with him going back 25 years. The house owner was adviced not to but the house out. The resort owners want us out as bad as we want out. They know the lake better than we do. Lets listen to their advice and heed their warnings. As far as the torched houses at Dickies I was told they were not occupied when they were set on fire.

minnbowhunter I'm not at all concerned what resort it was. The same thing could have happened to someone making their own road. I was refering to where on the lake a person should be careful, i.e. the house went in on this flat or that reef, there's a big crack at this spot... It wasn't a bash on any resort, that's for sure.

I understand your point and it is well taken. unfortunatly the info I got was 2nd hand and I don't know exactly on the lake the house was, only that it happpened on the east side. Your right, people should know if there is an area to stay clear of.

from what I heard which is also second hand is that it was along the east side out from Hunter's somewhere. So if your going out in that area just ask the resort owner about bad ice they will be more than happy to tell you.

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy.

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.
