My ice house made MN Bound, hehe

4 posts in this topic

Me and neighbors made a 6x9 ice house cheap this year, and put it out. It is white with a big red + (plus) running top to bottom, and side to side down the whole thing. We did it so nobody would hit it at night, and also because we used all "old spare" paint from our paint shelves, and the red + is actually just pine boards where we connected the sections together. Anyway, we saw it on MN Bound last night with some artist taking photos of ice houses he thought were cool, on a story about "ice house art".

So we are artists without even knowing it! Now my wife can't tell me I can't keep it behind the garage this summer, because it is my "art"!!! ha!

I laughed hard when Schara used it to close that section of the story, and the narrator said it looked like someone wrapped up a big present and left it on the ice. That's what we were laughing about when we painted it, that someone would take it away like a present out there!

It would only be logical that the next move for your shack would be right next to the Cherry and Spoon sculpture in Minneapolis! All you have to do is call something "art" and you can sell it for big $$ smile.gif!

Too bad art can't catch fish! Just kidding. You are doing well for a rookie. Pam let me go up to the cabin alone this weekend and fish for two days alone since the septic is frozen and she needs a flush toilet. I got a good number of 14 - 15" crappies on a small secret lake I fish up that way. I got all the big crappies on small shiners on tip-ups but could not get them to hit waxies or spoons on the fishing rod. All I could get on the rod was small 9 - 10" crappies on about every drop when it got dark. I used up 2 dozen or more shiners on the tip-ups for the crappies. It was the best night of crappie fishing I have ever had and I let most of them go so the fishing stays good in this little lake. I am hitting Green Lake for the last weekend of game fish season and after that we need to hookup for some panfish fishing.

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.

      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.
