Bringing a portable out?

6 posts in this topic

In Feburary I'm heading out to LOW for the first time. We are heading out of Sportsmans Lodge (I think). We'll be going out of the bombadeers and I was wondering if they allow you to bring your portable with or do they not allow that. Thanks for any help.

I asked another resort the same question and they said "no" that they didnt have enough room. You would also have to take the auger which is even more space. I would think most resorts go under the same policy and would say no.

I wouldn't plan on bring it. If you go out of a resort where you can drive out on their roads like Zipple then yes. But if you are going in a track van there isn't room for it. Maybe they will be willing to do it for you but I would bet it will cost more.

If the track vehicle has a hitch you can(or should)be able to bring it.I know depending on the amount of snow on the ice they may not want the portables/augers 'cause people drill to close to the shacks and flood them.c63I enjoy bringing an auger at least so I can fish outside alittle of the time.The owner at the place we always go says"why do rent a house from me when I come out here your always fishing outside" grin.gif Just call ahead and see if it's ok,eh?

If you have a party of a few guys going, just have a couple guys go in the bomber and you can follow the bomber with your sled and portable. That way, all your equip is in the portable and you have your "home" house as well as the opportunity to fish outside a little bit if needed. I don't think most resorts would care if you did that but just check like the last post said.

      I think with the current forecast there will be ice fishermen/women on URL by the 20th. It'll be bitterly cold, which is excellent, but the snow puts a hamper on things...

      all good advice, but with first ice I will avoid going out in the dark until the ice is a thicker. Ice is never safe, play it smart. looking forward to getting out soon

      I also use braid for my decoys and suckers  I think I even have a steel leader on one of them and never had problem with them spooking,  I built a wood floor for my but and use PVC poles to hand my decoys, GoPro, spinner etc works great and can slide them out of the way when not in use.

      make / manufacturer: Eskimo
      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.
