Little "Extras" in Fish Houses?

Recommended Posts

Dahitman44

I like "dinging" around with things, so I was wondering what little extras you have added to your houses?

Going to pick up the house before the big snowstorm this weekend, so just wondering what you guys have done.

Last year I "sheeted" out the inside with paneling. Any other things you have seen or have done yourself?

Thanks

Gotta have a cheap can crusher on the wall, saves a lot of room for the garbage. I also bought a little shelter for a bathroom. And then a camp toilet inside. Thats for lake of the woods where there are soo many people around. Shelves shelves shelves and hooks hooks hooks. Places to hang just about anything..

i think I just bought it at Wal Mart for about 9-10 bucks. Screws right to the wall, little garbage below it and your set to drink 2-3 cases before switching it !!!!!!!!!!

Seems pretty flimsly but works pretty darn good.

Ok -- Sorry Dead.

How about a Diet Fresca?

Most of you guys are too young to remember the Fresca.

I remember being at Red Willow for a softball tourney about 18 years ago and they didn't have anything that I ordered, so I just kept getting more off the wall and making the guys laugh. Then I started over, "I'll just take a Dew." Then like, Red, White and Blue and Hamms.

I knew they didn't serve3 beer so that made it fun. The guys were almost crying they were laughing so hard.

The old lady, "I told you no Dew." and then I went through all of them again. Really odd stuff I knew they didn't have. I finally said, "Ok, Just a Fresca."

I thought she gave up until she cam up to our table with an old, dusty can of Fresca. She had quite the look on her face!

The joke was on me and one guy had milk coming out of his nose he was laughing so hard.

Geez Hit,

Talking Red Willow. Brought back a little flood of the old days. I grew up in Cooperstown so we played a lot of ball up there. The Haines' were great people. We used to deer hunt northeast of the lake and on the other side of the refuge on the west side of the lake. Some of the best tounaments around.

Thanks for the memories.

I'm a classmate of Linda. We lived about a block and a half from them. When we were little we looked up to Darrell. He went by the nickname, "Nuts". Golfed a lot with him through high school. Terry was in my sister's class, I think. Mike and Lillian always treated us well when we came over. Were you also related to the Hagles then too?

I had a brother that worked at Red Willow as a kid too. It would have been in the 1980-1984 range.

My name is Greg Stetz. There were four of us brothers that played up there but not all at the same time. The brother that worked at Red Willow was Bryan. He is better known, actually only known, as Sumo.

Has anyone ever used the Lewandoski rod holders? they look like they could save me some rods over the course of the winter. If you have tried them please let me know what you think. thanks

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
