Scale???

4 posts in this topic

I am wondering about the weight of my fish house. Is there a scale in Brainerd or near Mille Lacs?

There is a good scale at Crow Wing Recycling, used to weigh small trucks/trailers for scrap metal. Dutch is a good guy, and if you ask them they progably will let you pull across the scale to get the full weight and trailer weight. They are on Industrial Park Road, in South Brainerd, right by Ramada Inn and L&M Steel.

714 Industrial Park Rd SW, Brainerd, 56401 - (218) 828-0048

Hope this helps, Paul W.

I know right where it is. I never would have thought of it. Thanks

Hey, No problem. I am an old scrapper, and know a scrap yard scale has to be accurate and they have to be proficient in weighing both trucks and trailers, with combinations of axle weights. Dutch is a good guy, and they always treated me well there.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
