Cabin fire?

6 posts in this topic

I was up last weekend closing up the cabin/dock (thanks again JKrash) and heard that a cabin burned down in the Frazer Bay area. Does anyone have any information on this? Where? How?

Thanks

PSU,

This summer I saw a cabin on fire that was located on the East side of Fectoe's Point. I don't know if it actually burned to the ground though.

I know they did a training burn on the lake about a month ago. Maybe a little longer than that even. Not sure where. My department didn't take part in it. Basically they stage a number of small room and contents burns (level 1) and practice putting them out and watching how the fire grows. Then, they will conduct a level 2 burn that involves more than 1 room/location in the structure. They eventually pull out of the house after the level 2 has grown so much that it isn't safe to have anyone inside and sit back and watch her burn. It's good training for the FD, because you really get a chance to watch the fire and how it acts instead of focusing on putting it out as soon as possible.

That fire was on Dodge Point,east arm off of Fectos. It was burned down on purpose,to build a new cabin and it was used for fire training. It's the same owner that built the large log cabin next door. I live two cabins to the east.Fishing was great last Sunday morning. Caught 12 walleyes, 6 jumbos and a 8 lb northern all on a Sonar (metal blade lure) in 30 plus feet of water..

I have never fished a sonar bait. I got about 6 of them handed down from my grandfather but I have never used them. How do you fish them? Are you trolling or vertical jigging?

I vertical jig them,I use 4/10 lb test Fireline and just lift and drop about 1 to 2 feet from the bottom. Keep a tight line as they hit on the drop many times. You really get a jolt with the no stretch line. I rarely use live bait in late fall anymore..

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.

      Here's a couple pictures of one of the 14' boats I redid, a 25hp will be plenty of motor for a 12' boat.  The14' bat in the pictures with the additional weight from the wood would go 26mph with just me in the boat.  As you can se  left the compartment open for the gas tank, so I could monitor the level and so I could breathe better. Send me a message if you have questions.  It's really a fun project to work on these old boats.

      Do you have any pics of the process or finished product by any chance?

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.
