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.

      7/20 day 6 Today was was the feast day. Spending most of the day hanging on shore visiting and eating the weeks catch of fish for lunch and burgers and salads for supper.  Some water time for the kids and the wife.  Avas' parents also drive up to spend the evening around the fire.  It was quite the family affair.   Fishing today was targeted towards finding the big panfish for my folks to catch.  This plan was an utter failure.  Both boats out this evening and no one could find the panfish!  Frustrating to say the least. I decided late in the evening to go back after walleyes to try and put the folks on some fish.  I ended up boating only 1 northern 20", Dad landed a 18", 17", and 14" walleye, while mom boated a 14" walleye, and 2, 8" bluegills.  Not bad for a fall back plan the last hour and a half.   7/21 day 7   Today was a day to say goodby to My folks and the borther and sister inlaw.  As well as to start to sad action of packing up and being ready for our trip back home early the next morning. Our late afternoon was interupted by a nice strong thunderstorm that would rattle cabins, dump a ton rain, and light a couple of trees on fire around the lake from lightning strikes!  Also leaving us without power for 7 hrs.  It was a good storm. With the kids off to a movie, and the in laws on shore with boat.  It was just me off to lake for one last fishing outing after the storm.  With only a little over an hour fish i hit our standard walleye spot.  With old faithful providing me with two small walleyes 12" and 14".  The darkness came and fishing for the week was over.

      I was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
