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.

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting

      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.

      Great job guys!! I got 8 shots off the first one was good then I missed 7 in a row. Gordie got one and well river rat got zero. It was a hoot to hunt with them.

      I have a 2018 ice castle with the GS trailer frame. Are you supposed to drill holes to let water out of the tubes or do the new GS trailers have holes in them already? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
