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?

      What are your guys thought on what this warm weather is going to do to the lakes. I hope it gets warm enough to settle the snow and allow the slush that is out there to freeze.

      Things have become pretty hit or miss for my house out there.  I fished last week from Tuesday through Sunday; alas, school started yesterday so it's back to the real world for now.  During afternoon primetime, I caught between zero fish (yes, I got skunked one night) and 12.  Daybite was very tough (mainly because I quit fishing and either went hiking over at Kathio, tip-up fishing in the bays, or went down and looked at guns at Boone's), but the reports I heard from those fishing hard during the day made that decision fairly easy.     The overnight bite was pretty steady, with multiple fish each night coming on the rattle reels.  I pulled the lines twice because I got sick of catching 15-17'' walleyes.    Sunrise was also hit or miss.    All in all, it's not early ice anymore, that's for sure.  I'm still fishing fairly shallow, and it might be time to move the house.  Biggest fish all weekend was just under 28''.  I still have only one keeper in my current location despite catching well over 100 walleyes there in the last few weeks.  The last week or so was pretty strange...at least two nights either me or my friend caught more than 10 fish while the other guy, fishing less than 15 yards away, caught very few.  Why the fish can be loaded in one spot and non-existent a few feet away, and then switch the next night so the "hot" house goes cold, is a mystery to this fisherman. Maybe they swim counter-clockwise around the lake one night and then turn around and swim clockwise the next?
