Labshack on private waters!

Recommended Posts

Random guy

Labs4me is always whining about "to many poeple", "poeple are crowding me", I don't "want to pay the road fee" so on and so forth so we moved the Labshack to a PRIVATE little lake today so he could have the peace and quite he desires. It was a small investment on Labs part for his own lake with his own access and his own massive school of river chubs to fish but as the selling party I feel he will be very happy on this "cozy" lake. Trouble is he will need a bridge to get to it...I'm thinking the golden gate deal will fit into his budget. grin.gif

He must feel pretty lucky to have friends like you guys, I mean to give him his own lake, set the house up, drill holes and you must have turned the heat on right????

If there's pheasants in those cattails he'll be in paradise. He'll never come back.

You can put an ice shack anywhere and people will think its on fish. Watch out! Masses of fisherman with portables will be surrounding the LabShack now! smile.gif

Looks like PARADISE to me! Boy I can't wait to get back up there and POST the perimeter of my 'new hotspot'!!! No crowding then...

And all the river chubs I could want? I guess I'm opening a new bait stand to boot... HMMM... I wonder what chubs bite on? I say Kelly should make sure all the welds are tight on the skids and they can double as pontoons and I'll have a houseboat to boot for the summer! grin.gif Good thing you didn't try it with the wheel house... I don't know if it would've ever made it back out, and I don't see parts laying on the ice! grin.gif

You guys crack me up!

Last time we were on Petrowske waters this time of the year, it was to 'fish out' an ATV and an overserved buddy... 'course that was Petrowske Creek and not Lake Petrowske...

With friends like you guys............. well it just brings tears to my eyes!!! tongue.gif

Good Luck!

Labs ,I just talked to Kelly and he said the fishing was pretty slow on big petrowske lake and that should move to the little petrowske lake on the other side of the dike ! grin.gif

Hows the access getting on that lake? Is it o.k. for a full size 4x4 or should I bring my snowmobile and portable so I can be a little more mobile??? Oh and what depths are you catching fish? Lure colors, time of day fish are biting, etc all appreciated.

Sheepeople! Now that's funny... grin.gif

Jon, when you put the labshack on that lake, did you drill the holes out??

Just wondering if you needed an extension?? grin.gif

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!   We need to bring back the Rich folks!  Finally getting smart!! 10.00 dollar rod will work just fine

      My no snow slow snow dance started off as rain? Guess I made a mistake and did a rain dance. Cleaning off the trucks last night I would say we got 3 inches far less then they predicted 9 to 11. The winds picked up last night and are howling right now. The snow was wet and heavy to start so I'm hoping its not blow in my landing to bad.
       Barny from Kellier is coming up today to do a little welding for us before we pull the house's off the shore line. Montana needs a hook re welded and the metal grade step repaired, Florida also need some work on the step.
       I got the radiator ordered for white Lightning aka Cheyanne. I'm hoping it arrives before Saturday and I can get Devon to install it while there here. We also have a lite bar for blue thunder that Devon gave me this summer. I noticed the wipers quit working on the red baron and we will have to check that out as there kinda important out there on the lake.
       Josh from Annandale is running a snowbear out there this year. He has a helper Travis that was out there yesterday guiding some customers. I talk to him briefly before the rain and snow started and he landed a 16 incher while I was talking to him, kinda curious how he did after that.
       I expect quite a few rentals will be working there way out on the lake starting Wednesday, my plans are to check my area one more time before I make the move onto the lake. I'm hoping to find 14 inches of ice the whole route so will see how that goes.
       I'm sure Buddy Hillmen will start dragging his road this morning if there's good visibility. He like to get that snow off asap to make the ice thicker on the road. Plus with a good wind a lot of it catches the air and its much less plowing.
       I know I have said it many times but it is one heck of a road and he takes a tremendous amount of pride in building it. Its a lot of work, a lot of ware and tare on the trucks, but I also enjoy being part of his operation.
       Crazy but I have heard and saw pics of a few. " More then 3" elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappies this  year. Deb and Jim did not fair to well sunday fishing. I think it was there first time on red lake. They did manage to get two in the time they fished and also missed a couple. They came off the lake before dark to be on the safe side.
       If you decide to come fish upper red lake in the near future please check in with the access resorts. With the snow cover they will have information Of any areas to avoid since they have all been checking condition daily. Remember common sense and if it does not look right it is probably not. Do not try and go to saved waypoints un tell we have weeks of ice making temps. Its just a fish. There's plenty of fishable ice that's average 10 inches. And the last Thing is remember as the old timer Dave told me" ITS A GRAND LAKE AND IT OWES US NOTHING!, NOTHING! City: waskish

      Time: 11:30:31 AM Upper_Red_Lake To all fishermen, If you spend 1/2 hour reading the past reports on here you should have all the knowledge you need to find those elusive crappies. Come and enjoy the lake , give every one plenty of room, Please bring your garbage home. Who ever left the 12 pack of empty bud cans I picked them up for you. Where do you think this garbage goes?I will tell you it ends up on the bottom of the lake or on shore so please take it home with you.This lake is pristine lets all keep it that way. THANKS COOKIE

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.
