Best place to "leave" a house

5 posts in this topic

going to bring my house up to low this year and in past years i never had my own. I am in school in ely and going to be up there x-mas- new years(ice permiting) then here and there after that. its a long drive and conditions such as slush and ice out change fast, is there anywhere that provides a service of "babysitting" your house and whats the cost? would consider a buisiness or even a responsible local maybe for fishing rights when un-occupied???? Anyone got any experiances with this service?

I notice there are a few, sometimes more than a few, shacks sitting on the ice near Adrians access. I assumed at least some of these shacks are dragged out by private owners, used, and dragged back for future use. (free storage?)

Besides the obvious risk of theft or vandalism, are there any problems with doing this ??

I have left mine on the ice by adrians. As far as I know there has never been a fee. Other than the obvious road pass. Never had any problems there, however i have never left it up there for much longer than a week before I went and pulled it back out on the ice.

I wondered the same thing last year about the houses by Adrians road. Do they keep an eye on them if you pay them or something?

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
