Not to make light of your misfortune but this is exactly why I don't have a permanent or "wheel" fish house.

Sorry to hear about that arcticcat400. You've posted your frustration in the right place; lots of eyes and ears here. I will, personally, keep them both peeled.

It would be interesting to know if any of these break in's have ever been solved. Seems like you are taking a huge risk leaving a house out around here.

I do not spend much time on the Metro forums or other area forums and am curious. Does this area seem to have more break in's than other parts of the State ?

As big of a draw as Red Lake has been over the past few years I don't think my cousin has ever had a break in reported on the houses that go out of his road access. At least not that I know of. There are tons of people from all over the state that fish there so what gives ?

I too would like to have a hard house but not if I have to worry about some scumbag destroying it.

Sorry to hear about your break in.

Ya thats the downfall of a perm, theres always some low life that does this around the area every year, I never understood the vandalism portion of it though, take the valuables that at least can be replaced but why be destructive, sooner or later at some point in there life they'll get what they have coming to them.

Where is your house located on Francis? I had some relatives in town this weekend and they took the perm out to Francis Sunday morning thru Monday morning, if your precise enough on the location of the house, I can talk to my cousin and see if anything was seen or heard. My email is [email protected] It's come up on past forums, but an alarm system is sounding like a must have for my perm before any of these idiots bust down my door. Sorry to hear that this happened to you.

If I had a perm I would rig up some motion lighting inside and hide one of those trail cameras to snap a picture of the punks. Judges love photos.

Sorry to hear the news. I hope they catch the culprit.

To those that may have eyes and ears in the area, pretty sure the house was mid lake north side. It sure would be nice to see this thread updated with a post of an arrest.

What us fishermen need to do is anytime we put perm ice houses on a lake we should make a fund like a doller a week and have a laid off construction worker like me who has nothing to do at night and thay can patrol the lake at night so there is no breakins that is not allot of money compared to the damage and equipment loss that you will take i am a fishermen and can't stand this littal punks.

      Well it's all how you look at it grasshopper! 😉

      Well “sadly”. Yes I just said that. Winter is coming to an end and gross summer is near. The hot temps, Humidity, mosquitoes, crazy busy boat landings, drunk boaters. The worst time of the year is near. Life is so blah now. No snowmobiling, no ice fishing, ( I wouldn’t be done for awhile yet but mom won’t let me go anymore😳), I mean really!? I could still drive my truck out What’s more dangerous late ice or being out on first ice on 2”-4”? It’s just water, mud and by far my least favorite time of year. This winter just went by way way to fast! But it is what it is. Can’t believe it, but so long winter 18-19😭🙋‍♂️. In summary probably one of the top ice seasons for me! It’ll make me feel better if I can share some pics with y’all. Enjoy! This is only a VERY few select pics from the winter. Biggest walleye- 21” (caught 3 total all caught while fishing for crappies or gills). Biggest gill- 9-3/4”. Biggest crappie- 13”. Total ice outings 29. (I wanted one more to reach 30). 26 angling outings, 3 dark house spearing outings.

      I am new to catfishing, and live near the stretch of the Mississippi river above the Ford lock and dam to the Marshall Ave. bridge. I have walked along the shore, and found some spots I think would hold some catfish. My only concern is how shallow the river is here. I will be trying these spots within the next two weeks. I am curious if anyone has had success in this section, or will I be wasting my time?

      Didn't go out of resort was on my own off the edge of gull rock reef

      I just wrote to those five people. I am amazed at how I live in the South Haven area and yet every time I learn about these meetings after they happen. And they don’t understand why we feel they want us to stay off “their lake”.  Need to be more open and up front publicly about these meetings. As I have stated before in another forum, I have not fished Sylvia since this was implemented. Also I have not bought bait or boat gas in South Haven the last 2 years. I will spend my money where it is welcomed. I have been cleaning my boat at landings for years, plus power washing it when I get home. I am sure many good anglers/boaters do as well and for them to make us go through this inspection, which is out of the way and not even open 24 hours is rediculous. I am all for stopping the spread of AIS, but there needs to be better ways of doing a it than keeping the lake from all users.  We need everyone to get involved in this even if you don’t live near these lakes.  AIS is affecting us all but we need everyone to speak up about how it will be dealt with, or more lakes will be “closed” to the public with this inspection program.

      Ten Point what resort were you out of?  Thinking of going up this weekend.
    • gimruis
      I haven't seen many yet. I did see a good number of pheasants on a drive to and from Pierz the other day though.

      My point was that I don't want ANY ethanol in an engine/motor that gets used for a while and then sits there - that's why I run ethanol free premium in them.  The ethanol sits there and gums up vital engine parts.  All of my irregular use engines are modern 4-strokes that run very smoothly and use a minimal amount of fuel and I'm going to do everything I can to keep them like that.  I use normal 87 or 89 octane unleaded in my truck because I use that almost every day all year round.

      Got 5 nice 12"ers to fill my special regulation lake limit.. Morning bite was as good as evening bite has been. Released another 7 smaller 10" class fish. Fished 545-700 am. Crappie minnows were the bait of choice today. 1 rod was all I could handle with these suicidal slabs. Had one snap my 4# test flourocarbon leader on the hookset.
