Welders?

7 posts in this topic

Anyone know of someone in the area that is good at welding and building stuff? I've got my own welder and can use it but I'm lazy and busy fishing blush.gifsmirk.gif

I've got an old camper converted to a fish house and want to put crank up wheels on it. I also have a Boss plow mount that's cracked.

Scott --

Tried to call you back and kept losing you. I would call Tony's Repair just north of Hawley on 33. He does a little of everything and he has fixed my fishouse a couple of times. Tell him I sent you.

Also -- ask him if he dumped his "Old Mill" habit for Coors Light yet. cool.gif

There is a guy near Vergas that is good and CHEAP! I bought a boat lift from him that lifts my Pro V 1900 and paid $150 (he has more!). He also has docks and other misc. stuff. Now back to the question... he owns and operates a welding business. The name of the company is Northland something... Fabrication? Anyway, I would definitely check him out. He has the welder on the truck, so there would be no hauling involved.

Sorry this took so long to respond... I have been busy lately mad.gif There are a few ways I have come to know a few people in the area. We rented a cabin on Star this past summer... and I have an aunt and uncle that live about 5 miles from Vergas. My uncle actually found this welder on Swap and Shop grin.gif The ol' uncle is a Swap and Shop junkie and loves to call in. I told him that I was looking for a boat lift and the next thing I know I got one for dirt cheap.

      For winter jigging with Raps I cut off both front and rear hooks and upgrade one size on the middle treble hook. Cliff

      Another observation from the tournament and pre-fishing: On LOW I don't usually get very concerned about colors on cranks. However, Friday and Sat, the UV white with pink striped top shad rap was doing about 6 to 1 in the mornings. Afternoons, the gold foil rap was by far our best color. I'm a bit color blind, but pretty sure that UV rap has pink on the top. Wonder what fish actually see...........not much pink striped stuff swimming around the big lake.

      1/18 Day 4   Day for was exploration Day for the family.  Amanda, the kids, and my mother in law spent a good portion of the hanging out in town.  Shopping and visiting a few of the local attractions.   The father in law and myself decided to pull his boat and go explore a near by lake we have been thinking about.  This would give us s little change of pace.   Fishing actually exceeded our expectations, especially for starting in the early afternoon. Unsure where to start we motored around watching the graph if an area I thought might be good.  after a short while we noticed most marks showed themselves in 18-21 ft on steep breaks.  With the winds blowing we decided to try anchor on top and let the wind drift us over the and bobber fish.  This began to seem unproductive after about 45 mins with no bites, yet we were marking fish.  Out of bordem I decided to raise up 5 ft and cast as far as i could to the top of the break (15ft).  The first 3 casts produced 3 walleyes 15"-18". The bobber never settled before they went down!  The walleyes them slowed but the perch bit really picked up.  Most perch where 9" but a few went as big as 11".   After that spot slowed we hit a few similar spots until we settled on a spot bit deeper but with lots of marks.  This spot would give us pretty non stop action till dark.  With different species rotating through. By the end of the day we caught: 12 walleyes ranging from 11"-21". 5 Pike 20"-30" and one really big one that bit a 10" perch as it was being reeled in by the FIL. Countless Perch, not many under 9"or over 10". And a few dozen bluegills 7.5"-10".   Service here is giving me fits with photos. Hope to post some when i get home this weekend

      Perchy - Insured?  If so, the adjuster will have some recommendations, off the record, on places for repair.

      For all you jigging rap fans out there are you generally jigging those vertically or on the move.   I seen some discussion earlier on the front hook and one thing that I have heard about that hook is a lot of people do take it off in order to prevent snags. I have donated quite a few jigging raps in the past to rocks on the big V I have donated quite a few drinking wraps in the past to rocks on the big v

      Help! I need to get estimates to have the transom repaired/replaced on my 2002 Lund due to an accident and have no idea where to go? I live in Owatonna. Thanks in advance!

      Not on mine either!!

      Every store is different as to what they have in stock so if your looking for a specific thing in your size you might have to hit a couple. I went to the Duluth store for my bibs.   Yes a lot of the stuff is still too expensive for going out of business sale prices.
