      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

I have an old garage that I'm looking to get rid of. My bro-in-law said that he had some friends that wanted it for a boat-house, but they aren't committing to a time to come disassemble it and haul it off. I will need it gone sometime in the spring. It's about 22x12 (guess). I'm wondering what some possible options are. Does anyone know if an older garage is a hot commodity for anyone to come and remove to re-assemble at another location?

Also, would something like this be a candidate to talk to the GR fire department to have a training burn? I've always heard about things like that.

Does anyone have any suggestions or advice (or know of anyone that might be interested). I could send pix if interested. Email me at: jgrahek898 at msndotcom.

Depending on how accessible it is and the shape it is in, you might just find a buyer, if they can move the whole works. You might want to try and put it in the Manney's shopper want ads and see what happens. The GRFD would be another option but it all depends on how close to other buildings, powerlines, trees, etc, etc.

To contact the GRFD you could call the Grand Rapids Police Dept. 218-326-3464.

i have moved a 24 x 24 garage across town before.just gotta get some permits and watch the power lines you can haul it with out taking it apart.i guess it depends on how far you plan on moving it.what we did was we took 2 big junks of iron and braced the garage then we jacked and cribbed the garage up just enough to get a flat bed tow truck under it.then we lowered it on to the flat bed and hauled it away with me on top to watch for the power lines ect ect.once we got it to where it was going we had the drive back up on the slab and we jacked it up let the truck out and lowerd it on the new slab.we were only 2 inches off lol that was a luck thing im guessing.but anyway thats how we did it.

Hey stick, where is this garage located? I'll talk to my dad and see if he's interested. We've been involved with moving a garage previously so I'll see if he's interested.

It's on South Gama Beach Road which is the east shore of Sherry's arm on Pokegama.

Not an easy task. I own Grand Garages and I have seen this issue so many times, if it is really old and degraded you will be best to tear it down and build new. I have seen two of these that "fell to pieces" on the road during transit, now that is not a pretty sight!

Let me know if you need any help.

Thanks for the post Dan, and welcome to the site. It's a tad rickety, but the overall structure is in decent shape. I don't know if the slope of the driveway, the wires, and the general terrain would accommodate moving the garage in-tact. My main thought would be piece-mealing it by taking off half of the roof at a time, and then disassemble the walls and then haul it off. Is this beneficial for anyone, or should I just plan on renting a dumpster?

Any thoughts from here?

Honestly, it may not even be possible to "cut" the roof in half, but it all depends on how much time you want to spend sureing it up so it will survive the travel process.

Now here is the kicker, trying to find someone to take an old building is harder than it may seem. I once had a house that started as a garage. It was only 10 years old, so it had a lot of potential to be a home for a starter couple. I did find a guy and his girlfriend that wanted it, but when they got the bid of almost 10,000.00 to move it two miles...........I ended up getting 3 dumpsters and tearing it down. They were able to find an excavation contractor that would move it, but it was not much different in price.

Good luck!

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.

      Lot of ice on the shore, only place to fish as of Thursday is two harbors breakwall
    • Wanderer
      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.
