Ice House Storage

14 posts in this topic

Does anyone have recommendations on a resort that stores ice houses? I would like shower facilities if possible, and the price will play a factor too. Any info helps. I have looked online, but I am looking too see if anyone has any good/bad experiences or could refer me somewhere. Thanks.

Appledoorns does not run private houses. My vote would be to give George a call at Hunter's Point or try Twin Pines, I'm not sure if they run privates or not.

I'd try Garrison Sports. A friend of mine has his house there and has always been happy with them. It doesn't surprise me; Kari Hough is one of the nicest guys on the lake.

Just curious here, but i have never heard anything about Fishermans Wharf on this site. I was thinking about storing a wheel house up there on a camp site for next season (after i get it built). Are they always full or is there something i dont know?

We have had our house stored at Macs for the past 4 years. The service is very good, very friendly every time we pop in or give them a call. Not sure that they have any shower facilites though. Our house is stored approx a block away from the access site. Kevin and Karen, Jim and Brook do a good job. Bill

bturck, closing up this weekend? Fishing any of the perch contests? I'll be up doing both. I moved back in last weekend. I was worried that the snow storm could screw up pulling my house in. Now it's close enough that it's Kevin's problem.

Bill, next time you are up, I will personally show you where our TWO showerhouses are:) We have nice clean showers--both in Buzzie's building and the building on topo of the hill. Proud to be home to Buzzie's, too, so you can fill your tummy and sing your lungs out!

Karen

P.S. I'm restraining myself from any silly comments about the fact that you've been with use for so long and do not know we have showers. Eww:) You do know we have a garbage dumpster, though, right? blush.gif

Been at Twin Bay over 30 years. Present owners are tops. There are two sets of showers.

      Getting these big fish back in the water as soon as possible is important in summer heat.

      Thanks guys! JB-how do you get the Mepps down deep?

      I know its not attached to you. But the issue is with it being attached to the dog and if its running full speed and it gets caught on something. The injuries can occur when its a sudden stop and the collar around the neck is pulled hard from the weight of the dog.   Sounds like to you need to get back to the basics with the check cord and get back to sit, stay and come. You can work her with the check cord in a hallway at home with the doors closed, then move to a larger  grassy area etc. Keep the sessions short and praise, praise and praise some more when she comes back when called.   You never want to give a command you cant enforce and that's where the check cord comes in handy. We have all been there before. But if your not confident with her in the water next to a road you need to go back and revisit those commands and how to enforce them until she is ready. its just not worth risking injury.   You have to make the retrieving fun and if she doesn't bring it back your done for that session, and then she doesn't get to retrieve. Let her see you put the dummy away and then start another session at a later time. Praise, praise and praise when she does it correctly.   Dogs will pick up on your body language frustrations etc.  Just takes lots of reps and keep them short and be positive and she will get there.

      I actually don't have that long leash attatched to me. Its 100' I believe and the only reason I leave it on her is because Round Lake is right by a busy road so if she wants to bolt after a rabbit or something I can quickly grab that leash. Also sometimes she'll grab the dummy and want to swim around with it so I give a few tugs to let her know her job is to bring it to me, not swim in circles. It's just a safety measure because she isn't quite ready for fully off leash training just yet. I almost never actually need to grab it.    Thanks for the advice though, the last thing I'd ever want to do is hurt a dog, especially mine. I never throw the dummy past where it's safe to walk so if she did get it wrapped in cattails or something and got stuck I'd quickly get her.

      Thanks for having me Minnesota. I wasn't able to float the Ottertail river but I did fish the lake every morning. Most fish the first 3 days came on top water whopper plopper. The last day, the water temperature heated up to almost 80 so I changed it up a little bit and fished deep water 10-20 feet and caught fish deep. Here's some of the better fish from this week. The fishing up here is great. Can't wait to make it back.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      Thanks for the advice Dave  I dont let Finn fetch on check cord any more. I only used it when he was a pup
