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..

      No internet in the field today. Had a group sky busting keeping birds out of anyone's range. Riverrat and I got buzzed by teal a few time and a pair of woodies scooted through. Should have had a shoveler and some woodies. The bugs were so bad I lost 4 pints of blood. 

      Now to the fun parts Finn was jumping woodcock son the fields on our way out. Finn did good but does not like no action. After leaving the refuge I checked my dads pond. O yeah there was a woodie sitting on the log bang!! No finn needs to do his job.

    • Lindy came along on our trip to Western MN for duck opener. The guys that came out Thursday to start scouting had a field lined up with alot of geese but they got busted off the roost early in a huge flock and didn't commit. We ended up with only 2 birds today.  She had to stay back in her crate during the hunt but got to play with a wing afterwards.

      what size screen does your new unit have----------------I have a 5 inch helix with side imaging and for me it worthless-------------------the screen is TOO small to see whats going on.  I wouldn't buy any unit that didn't have at least a 7 inch screen.  What unit is your new one??

      I've got a powerdrive also...............my unit would run fine out of water,in water no way.  The prop would barely turn.  I ended up replacing the board the unit and it runs like champ now.  I had it to a dealer and they told me there was nothing wrong with it----------but ,they only bench tested it and did not do a tank test

      Fished Thursday in 30 feet out of the gap and did very well. Couple of slots and a couple of dinks but mostly nice keeper size fish, had to quit early in the day because we had all our fish. Should only get better from here on out I would think.

      Feels like fall this morning!  I was yesterday morning with my son. We did some trolling and it was really good.  I think I might try to get the jigging rods out today and give that a go.  First headed to see the wolves with the kids.
