fish houses

8 posts in this topic

I know the deadline for fish houses was the 15th of March, but there were several sleeper houses that were still on the lake this past weekend. Just curious for future trips on what the rule is. Is there a difference between rentals and personal houses?

That was sure one of the best sunsets I have seen on Saturday evening. What a great day...

From what I understand, they can be left overnight if they are attended to daily.

No difference. If you are north of the highway 2 boundary your fish house may stay on the lake over night if it is in use. From what I understand the CO for upper red lake considers in use with holes drilled and the heat on. You don't actually have to be in the house.

The new law reads, "attended daily". With the old law you even had to fold up portables at midnight. confused.gif

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
