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.

      Many people come on this forum asking for help, but I'm begging much more sincerely.   60 years ago at the age of 10, I used to read the fishing ads in Field & Stream about fishing in Minnesota.   I always said I would go one day, but as you know life and things get in the way.   Well, I'm 90% retired now and ready to make the long trip from way down south to go fishing in Minnesota, my lifelong dream.   I always wanted to go to the BWCA, but I'm simply not able now due to health problems. I can't do hiking, portaging, etc anymore.   Here's the deal....  I would love to find a small remote cabin (in Minnesota) on a small lake to stay for a week or more, next spring or summer.    I don't need anything fancy... rustic is the best for me.   I want to fish for smallmouth bass and big bluegills and I will bring my boat along too.   If any of you could recommend a small lake, with a small cabin and good fishing to rent for a week or so, I promise I will repay you somehow.   A guide would be nice for a day, or I'd gladly pay one of you a NICE tip and take you along in my boat fishing, as many days as you want.   I'm still begging.... could you please help make my 60-year dream come true?  PM me if you wish.   Thanks in advance.

      Thanks @knoppers.   I’m about to head over to that general area.  Makes me wonder if I should load the wheeler.

      What length of the HT BLUES are you looking for? I've seen some 24" @ Walmart stores. Some in the rod/reel combos n some just the rod itself. I got my 30" frm Frankie's bait in Chisago so if you're in that area you can check it out or give them a call. I remember seeing some @ Blue Ribbon baits in Maplewood also. You can also give them a call. I hope this helps.

      Fish went deeper durring the day today. Not easy cracking the code this year

      I shoot through the bottom..  Use plumbers putty to make a ring and use some to keep the diversity in place.   I just add enough water to make a good conductor.  Works great.  No worries about snagging the ducer outside the boat.  As for finders I have an old fish eagle, buddy just picked up a battery operated color unit from amazon says it worked good.

      I just got a report from nextdoor that we have 8-10 inches.
