my old man used 4 treated 4x4's 16 feet tall and about 2 feet from the top he built a floor and support beans going down with 2x4's. put up some cheap 1/8-1/4" chip board for walls on the outside. then we put it in the ground about a foot-2 feet and used some quick create to set it up solid. Nice stand. We put some old carpet we had on the floor and that was the best thing ever so much quieter. My dad's a trucker not a carpenter and there is a reason and it works great. Wish he would have built a roof on it though.

find an old running gear from a gravity box style grain wagon and use that as the base for your stand. that way you have built in road friendly portability. we have four of these. one is even adjustable in height. if i can find some pictures i will post them this week.

Please post those pics. I've been planning on building one for about 6 months, just haven't gotten it done.

We build them in trees & all different types of trees. Find a big tree in a spot that the deer are coming by & then figure out a way to build one. Very few of ours are similar other than a big double trunked white oak is tough to beat. We have several small platforms, 2' by 3-4', in those types of trees, some have seats, some didn't have room for one.

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
