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.

      Don't go giving too much notice there Royce!    Been kinda wondering if a yakking GTG would pop up some day.  Would be a great time to share a paddle and see how others rig their gear for fishing, or whatever.  And maybe do some demo paddling in other kinds of yaks than what we're paddling now.   Now, who might be able to put something like that together??

      Gills should be on or real close to beds. Crappies are on beds on some lakes, done spawning on others. Btw, welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Welcome to our Forum Muzzy!  You may want to consider hiring a guide for a day or even 1/2 day to start your trip.  They can give you a lot of good information that will help you put fish in the boat for the rest of your trip. Cliff & Casey are regular contributors here and members of the Lake Vermilion Guides League.  https://lakevermilionguidesleague.com/.    Good Luck!

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow
