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?

      I believe it is the 49 bridge just a little south of there. Lots of ice chunks coming down.

      I fished the river on Saturday and saw at least a dozen different full sized trucks going in and out of the bays and all over the Arrowhead Flats. Since then an F150 and several ATV's have gone through. Just like Big Country predicted, another one today. Under the Oliver Bridge an old timer on a 6 wheeler spent 30 minutes in the water before a passerby noticed him holding onto the ice. Please be safe, tell your friends, tell anyone who talks fishing. Any ice right now is sketchy

      A buddy of mine was out fishing last night and some guy drilled a big spear hole in the ice and never marked it or out the ice back in the hole. My buddy told me the ice block wasn't even by the spear hole he almost fell in! Reminder to always mark your spear hole and keep a careful eye out to make sure you don't step in one!
