Looking for advice for wheelhouse

Recommended Posts

Feldy

Be my first trip with my new wheelhouse and would like some advice on which resort has the best roads. Don't want to cross anything dangerous first time out. I'm looking to set up for home base and pop around with the sled. Would like to catch some eyes at night in the house though. Don't need specific spots just general ice conditions and maybe parking on a good break close to shore.

Thats what I'll do. It doesn't look like a guy would have to go out to far for some action there. Thanks Bruce.

Great location on the lake and great people, I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Another option is Nodak Lodge, we've been staying there and fishing out of there for years. They also have great roads and will give you maps and good advice. They are on the south side of the lake, near Bena, and have roads going to several bars and the humps. Good luck and have a great trip with your new house!

Sounds like you've got a good strategy - staying mobile throughout the day for the perch and then settle in for the late afternoon through the evening in the sleeper for the walleyes. Feel free to stop by or give us a call at 800-365-2560 for the latest reports on ice/fishing and we can also give you a map on our current road system.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
