Permanent house owners beware

9 posts in this topic

Just to let everyone know that there have been numerous instances lately in which someone is stealing the propane tanks off the front of permanent houses.Two friends of mine have had two tanks each stolen off their houses. I just had one taken off the front of mine. In every case the tanks were full.

You may want to lock them down.

What lake did this happen at? I had my house broken into after New Year's on Belle.

One tank was stolen on Belle and the other 4 were on Marion.

it is for that reason that I no longer leave anything on the ice overnight. sold my old house and bought a wheel house. sad really, that we can't trust anyone anymore.

This takes a couple extra minutes but why not just unhook it and put it in your house.

when I did have a house I left out, I had a quick connect for the tank and took it home with me. house stayed unlocked, with NOTHING in it. I could tell people went into it, so in their frustration, guess what they did to make me mad (or at leas try),...... they locked the door!!! lmao

people just dont understand that its wrong to do this. They dont look at it that people pay money to have all this stuff and then for them to take it, its like taking the money out of the pocket. its wrong, and it makes me upset.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
