It does beg the question....

Was it a portable? (I hate the word porty, sounds like it needs potty after it)

possibly stolen?

Well did not lose it just north of the big pile of rocks sticking out of the ice but about six miles north on Hunter/Winfield Resort, but just what to know if that pile of rocks has a name.

Doesn't Hennpen Isle (sp) have rocks that stick up as well? Must have been one heck of a evening trip if you can't find your way back to your "porty" house! wink

I was going to ask you if it was white but I guess thats kind of a dumb question this time of year.

Its white in summer but Im not sure if thats seagulls, bird [PoorWordUsage],or white rocks. Never drove in that close.

Well maybe you should go out there and follow YOUR tire tracks. How do you lose an ice house. Or next time you should borrow your nephews gps.

P.S. My step dad is not going to be very happy when he finds out you lost his fish house!!! smile

It has to be Hennepin Island as that is south and west of Big Point and it is also a big pile of rocks sticking out of the ice.

Wait until late in the day on February 27 and scope around with some binoculars. I suspect it'll be a lot easier to find then.

You guys are brutal. With the name “harv65”, I am guessing his name was Harvey and he is 65 years old. Without knowing the truth, it is so easily to cast stones. If I was 65, what is a GPS?

severa; years ago we were at Macs Twin Bay and a fella came in and asked if anyone had seen a blue portable go by. He was sober as could be, mid morning. He said he had set up the house on the north end and it was windy and no snow. he turned around and the house was headed south. He chased it with his ATV for awhile but soon realized he wasn't going to catch up with it, so he came south hoping someone had found it or seen it cruise on by. Don't know if he ever did find it, but I would suspect eventually it came to rest near Isle if it didn't tip over and destroy itself. Felt sorry for the guy, it was his first house and first time out with it. cry

motley man

Flip overs and pop ups don't like wind. If you get out of them they fly. I use 4 boat anchors to tie down with on my pop/up. They work great and i don't have to drill anchor holes for spikes. Gives extra weight in back of truck when not using them on ice.

I am so confused, entertained and amazed all at the same time. What the heck is going on with this thread? Harv lost a house, but didn't actually lose it, but just wants to know what a pile of rocks is called....I love it, but I wish i knew what Harv is talking about. smile

      We're heading to the East side of Rainy, boat camping next week. Just curious if the walleyes are on the reefs and what baits are being used? Any updates would be appreciated.
    • Trump 2020
      Muskies-  Any advice on a good place to stay on Rainy? Was supposed to stay on Canadian side this week and obviously didn’t go. So now I am trying to put together a quick trip with my Dad on MN side maybe later this month instead...

      It was in about 12 feet of water I estimated. 100 feet or so I'd say off shore. I kick myself....I wanted to get the pic so bad I didn't hit a waypoint. But it would be easy to find again.

      How close to comet island was it?  If I remember the story correctly comet island was named after one of Aronsons early motor boats named “comet” hit the island and sank.  I think the story was in one of the lake vermilion history books the timberjay published about 15 years ago.

      Hi, guys, I've written a complete guide on offshore fishing that will be very helpful for the newbies I need you help to make the guide better so everyone can have benefit from it. This is not a spam so I request the admins please don't remove my post. Offshore Fishing Guide

      Just off the west side of comet

      I was able to talk to my Father about his days at LOTW.  He and my Mother caught 12 walleyes in 3 days over 27 inches, plus numerous other smaller ones.  Didn't catch a single sauger.  They caught them jigging, spinner rigs, and on lead core.  Lead core seemed to catch the bigger fish as they use bigger crank baits that weed out the smaller fish.  It was calm all 5 days so they could get to and fish just about anywhere they wanted to without any difficulty.

      Vermilion is a "no brainer" when it comes to smallmouth. You'll be fine in early August. What is your favorite way ti catch bass? Start with that and work from there. One of my favorites is a white/pearl fluke...they eat those things up.  
    • jkrash
      is that out front of Mckinley park?
    • HunterFisher11
      So looking at some property on long lake right by Ottertail lake and wondering how the fishing is on it and the depths on it? Thanks for any information!!!!
