My cabin in trouble?

2 posts in this topic

I opened my cabin two weeks ago and did not leave the heat on. With this cold weather, should I drive 2 hrs there to turn the heat on? Or its already too late?

It was 12 degrees here the other morning in Glenwood and 24 degrees out right now (4:45 p.m.). Suppose to get down to 13 degrees the next 2 nights according to the weather channel with highs in the upper 20's and maybe reaching 30. If you left your water on and not the heat, I'd be making a quick trip to the cabin. The cost of time and gas is pretty minimal compared to tearing out all the plumbing and frozen water pipes. I assume that's what you're referring to in your post. We did get 5-6 inches of snow Monday night and Tuesday a.m. so there's some insulation on the ground and I think the first foot or better of frost is out. Your interior plumbing is probably okay. It's been below freezing here the past 3 days and with it suppose to get down to the low teens the next couple nights I think I'd be making a trip to your cabin. Better safe than sorry.

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.

      I would be cautious about removing seats and decks as they are usually part of the integral strength of the boat . If you remove anything make sure you add brackets or such to help keep the boat strength intact . For example bench seats that run the entire width of the boat are attached to the floor and both sides and help to strengthen the boat, if they are removed the sides of the boat are weakened, your modification should include a way to compensate .

      The waves have been bigger than i've ever seen the past 3-4 days on Ottertail.  Don't know how that is affecting the walleye bite... but its a mess out here.
