Folding bunk/bench

Question

riverwader

I am starting to get my final plans together for my wheel house and I would like to get folding bunks that I can fold up out of the way when not in use and that I can also open the bottom one down to have a bench when we want to eat or play cards. Does anyone know if this is something I can buy or am I going to have to get creative? I want the house to be wide open for a cargo hauler when I am not fishing so the folding bunks should work the best plus if I place them over the wheels I would have enough space for 2 cots at the rear of the house.

I wonder where Portaville found the fold down spring bunks they have in their rental houses at Red Lake they look like a nice deal?

I was in Monticello RV the other month and they have some metal foldable to the wall type bunks they just started displaying. Talk to Bruce there. I don't know if its the same exact manufacturer but they looked like they'd work very nice.

They are real easy to make. Piece of plywood, 2 door hinges, frame the bottom of plywood with 2x2's,a2x2 on each wall for support, and a small eye hook to hold in up position. If you add a mattress you might have to cut plywood and add hinges thickness of mattress away from the wall.

Go check out a lodge fish house...there is a dealer up in Fridley.

They have the dinette set up which is your bench on each side, then the table comes down and makes a bed. Meanwhile the benches fold up against the wall for the cargo hauling.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
