Hey maybe we can bail them out too.

Stealing other people's stuff is wrong.

But if you're not prepared to have something missing, don't leave it in an unattended fish house. I have precious little sympathy for stupid rich folks.

I agree to a point but the guys that lost the flat screen were a couple of teen age kids who saved their lawn mowing money to buy their gear, not rich folks.

Bottom line is don't leave anything in a fishhouse. A guy can't have anything. Sad but true.

It is mostly kids doing it. And I blame there parents for raisin em wrong. Heck If my father (God rest his soul) even had a feelin one of his children was breaking into fishhouses or any thing like that he would have beaten us within an inch of our lives.

Amen riverfishingmiss... some of these kids (an adults) have no respect. And their parents are mostly the cause... If my Dad (an avid fisherman himself God rest his soul) even thought we were thinking about breaking into fish houses... OUCH... it hurts thinking about what would have happened!

It's terrible that ANYONE, rich or poor, has to worry about the losers that have no concious. I'm talking about the ones that could care less whether they are stealing from a rich man or a poor, hard-working stiff. All they know is that they want something someone else has. And they are to lazy to go out and work for it themselves.

I remember the golden rule about permanent houses was to leave them unlocked with nothing in them except a small bottle of blackberry brandy. I understand the feeling of getting ripped off and it's awful as my truck was broken into once for the stereo.

Have a flat screen in a house is nuts, it sucks it was stolen but if your gonna steal something where are you gonna go, someplace thats dark, not many people, and where there is spendy stuff, a lake, night, fishing gear etc, i will never leave a house on a lake unless im sleeping in it.

Break ins were the primary reason I got out of the perm house hassle. If you could garentee that my house would never get broke into I would put one out, but I got sick of haveing my house broke into for a lightbulb and a depth bomb.

For what it is worth, about 14 years ago, I broke into a fishhouse, MY FATHERS!!! It was in our yard and he wanted to see if I could get in and how long it would take. Less than a min in and out. No stopping it. He figured out how I did it and remidied the situation. The next time someone broke in, they took a saw and cut a hole in the wall big enough to get in, and stole a light bulb mad . That was the end of the story, no more perm.

When I had a perm on a metro lake, someone broke into it and used it as a bathroom. No more perms for me!

The best thing to do is either take everything with you, take the house off every night or leave the drapes open and the door unlocked so they can see there's nothing in there to take.

Even with that, you still have people who just want to vandalize the house like take a [PoorWordUsage] in there and spray paint the inside, break windows and tear out insulation. The only thing I leave in mine are the rattle reels because they are mounted and even those, I think I should be taking with!

A booby trap would be fun... better yet be in the house without a vehicle/ATV/Sled around and let them have it.

A deer camera works good. As long as they dont take it. I know some guys who were baiting deer and got caught with picts of deer in a corn pile on their own camara kinda funny. Thats what happens when you start braggin and emailing picts the wrong person gets it and u r done!

Bob Sonenstahl is pretty sure he knows what fate awaits the thieves preying on Lake Minnetonka ice-fishing houses.

"What you're gonna end up with is four kids in the hospital and 40 people standing around with bruised knuckles, and nobody's seen nothing," said Sonenstahl, owner of Wayzata Bait & Tackle. "The fishermen will just take care of it; they won't even call the cops."

I've never met Mr. Sonenstahl but it appears that I'd like'm. wink

      BW is not a designated Trout lake. The limit is the same as state which I think is 5 bows. Don't think there is a size limit either since they don't breed.

      Rotes, Hi, I just joined this forum and these corner caps are just what I have been looking for. Is it possible at this late date to get a set of these made for my Lund? The only difference I can see is the color of the material. Would you be willing to make a set for me? Thanks, [email protected]

      Any move requires time and effort, but if you turn to a moving company for help, then some of the problems will disappear immediately. Firstly, the guys from the moving services always take care of the client's property, pack and carefully transfer your things to the car. Secondly, when moving with movers, you do not have to worry about the road, they choose the fastest and safest way, as they have extensive experience in transportation.

      Anybody know how much the lake temps have dropped?   Are people have the most success with minnows vs crawlers when fishing with live bait lately, or are crawlers still working?

      Snuck out last night, water Temps down to 54-56, last Thurs mid 60s. Fish were finicky. Leaves are changing quickly here, lots falling. Two weeks should be a lot better in the woods

      I agree with the previous comment, you could save a lot of money by making your website first .. its design .. and then if you want to move .. but if you want, you can immediately ..-) look here: https://digitalsuits.co/hire-developers/hire-shopify-developers/
    • valtt79
      I think that even at the initial stage, you need to consult with specialists who have been working in this field for a long time .. and then you will really get the result .. otherwise you can spend a lot of time and in the end you will have to redo everything .. for example, look here: https://www.softformance.com/services/software-consulting-company/

      The best solution in this situation is to create the software yourself, and then turn to testers who will check everything. Although, if you manage to develop software, then you will have the strength to test it yourself
