Looking for a Mille lacs Fish house on Skid

Recommended Posts

Chumba

Back to the drawing board after another weekend of searching. Ive seen all the Craug list houses.

If anyone has any info on a Skid house around 8X14 - 10x16 in the $1500-2000 range let me know. jmbirke3m at hotmail dot com

(Figured i would start another thread on this)

Chumba, Just trying to be helpful, so please accept this with that in mind....As for searching, have you called resorts directly and asked what they have for sale? (This time of year they can be hard to reach...but they also might know of clients looking to sell now that season is done.) Also, from my view, I think you will be very lucky to find a quality house at this size for the price range you list. However, some sellers also can be very eager to deal this time of year because they don't want to sit with the house until late summer/fall - the prime time to buy. In short, if you see a more expensive house listed, check it out and make an offer. All they can say is "no." Good luck!

Thanks. I have done some of that. I have not called all of them. I got out this weekend and drove through some lots on the lake, checked out a bunch for sale, and not for sale just to get a idea of what I am looking at. I know the price range is low, but if i find the right person looking to sell... I am fully aware it would need work. I just want sound foundation.

As an example there is one on Craug list at the red door with metal skids 8X12, open on the inside, only $500. Im tempted, but really want something bigger.

Imho,I would go with a 10 foot minimum width.The extra room is nice for four or more in a larger house.Some of the resorts don't like medal skids..........they seem to tear up and move bridges from time to time.c63

Nothing wrong with having a 8 x 12. It just all depends on how you lay it out. That's what I have been fishing out of for the past 20 years. The resorts love smaller houses also. I only was charged 1/2 the going rate for having my house moved to different spots cause it was so easy for them to pull mine. I also got on the ice a week or 2 earlier than the bigger houses. full-38115-18341-oldoffcaitlinsphone1103 Here is my house out on 8" of ice. When I was at Twin Pines they would pull it out on 6" with a wheeler.

If you go less than 10ft wide you will regret it!!! There are plenty of 10x16 houses out there in that price range. Rememeber you may spend several DAYS at a time in this house. Nothing worse than a small dank house. depressing.....Big windows are also a big plus.

      Been seeing a few between us and Coborns that is about 4 blocks away for a few years now.  Rare that they come to the yard but have seen one twice now here this week.  Today I got a couple pics before a gray ran it off. Had one in the mulberry tree for about a week 3 years ago. No pellet for these.

      Although no children of my own, I am incredibly thankful for my two nephews! They are my best pals and both like fishing, actually they like casting and playing with the worms. All part of the experience. I'm thankful for support from my mother and sister and to have friends that take me fishing. The last two years have been long days at the libraries and the hospital for graduate school so this forum has been nice to visit, read the reports, the stories and see pictures, essentially I've lived vicariously through many of you and I am grateful for that

      Mice the goldies are starting to color up again. They ate well here this winter. Cranes sound so cool!

      As I get older I find my appreciation and respect for time over material has grown tremendously. I appreciate long sunny days fishing with good friends. I appreciate my family, not nearly as m a's ny as there once was... but I love who's left❤  I appreciate my health, have been very healthy up untill this last yr😊 Hopefully I still have a few good yrs left😏  I appreciate my friends, some of them have been putting up with me since I was pretty young...lol   Very fortunate to have some close buddies. I appreciate HSO/FM...and all the great people I have met and or shared time on the water with because of this site😊

      Been many years since I had done the smelt netting, I was 15 at that time with the boy scouts of New London, mn.  Saw a program of guys doing it through the ice,  now that ice conditions are getting iffy, now I'm getting the bug to hit the lakes.  The Ice went out today on Buffalo lake, the water is going up, the crow river is backing up into the lakes.   Has anybody tired smelt fishing grindstone lake?  Looking for other lakes that may have those tasty little fish.

      Bert... chill out dude. Too much doom and gloom on tv, no need to bring that here too, man.... We can all hope and pray for the best😏😊

      Finally did a quick walk of my main hunting property yesterday evening.  Plenty of turkey sign even though I didnt see or hear any turkeys. Looking good. 
    • PeachyHans
      The red-wing blackbirds and robin's are back at my feeders with the dark eyed juncos hopping around. Lots of yellow finches this year! Plus I could have sworn I heard a sandhill crane the other day while hiking.
