Recommend a mobile welder?

9 posts in this topic

The toungue on our perm shack, a converted camper, partially broke when separating it from the ice, rendering the shack not roadworthy...

pic of damage

Looking for a mobile welder who might consider fixing it so it can be pulled 100 miles home from Mille Lacs. It is currently under watch on the ice at a private access, and would need to be fixed on the ice.

Can anyone recommend someone reasonable and reliable in the area that we could work with via phone to get an emergency fix? If you don't want to post contact info here, email me at jfederline at yahoo (Contact Us Please).

Thanks!

Haven't been able to get ahold of him yet, giz. One of his workers gave us the name of a guy in Milaca, but no return call yet.

I fixed the pic link - thanks crestliner16.

Thanks for the lead on Al's, farmfishing, I wonder what trip charge would be from Aitkin?

Has anyone used Thiele Welding in Isle? I see them listed on Fishermans Wharf website.

I have used Thiele in Isle when I broke my hitch off at Brandts. Unfortunately, I have an aluminum frame and he came out to Brandt's, loaded it on a flatbead trailer, took it to his shop, welded it, etc. all for under $300, which I thought was cheap (he had me over the barrell so he could have charged me whatever he wanted)plus he did this after 5 p.m. I would recommend him.

I highly recommend Thiel also. I went in there to ask about some steel to mount the fish house to the runners and he immediately dropped what he was doing and had what I needed in 15 minutes. They are located a couple miles south of Isle.

Sorry for the off topic ? but I am working on a camper conversion much like your. I was wondering if you could post some pics of the interior and what you use for hole sleeves. You could also e-mail me at perrym01@yahoo.com if you don't want to post. Thanks and sorry to Hijack the post!

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      This bass likes 50F weather and a Senkos

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
