Ice house Johns (crappers, toilets...)

This is my 2nd year with a permanent house on Mille Lacs (8x16). Last year I used a 5 gallon bucket with a garbage bag liner, tied up the bag, let it freeze and then stuck it in a heavy duty garbage bag for disposal. Just curious on any more innovative approaches to the call of nature.

Well........ I have sometimes used a one man. If you're lucky it'll sink. There's only one problem with this.... You have to know who your true buddies are. On one occasion I was in the makeshift pooper, And my buddy thought it would be humorous to pull the sled around. Talk about being caught with your pants down. There I was going for ride with my drawers at my ankles and all of the by-standers watching and wondering why there was a guy hollering in the one man being pulled around. Now I make sure i've got a good distance between us. That way I'll have everything tucked away before he gets there. Of course pay back is a son of a gun. Instead of pulling him around, I just flipped the top.....The moon was out a little early that day.

Sounds like quite an event.

I put together a kit to use on the ice when old Ma' Nature calls. Pretty simple, trash bag in a 5 gallon bucket, some paperwork of course, and just let it freeze and take it home in the back of the pickup.

When ya got to go, it just really doesn't seem to matter how elaborate the facilities are.

Just out of pure curiousity,...Do you remember where his house was?

Most all of the resorts I fish out of have public restrooms ranging from heated flush toilets and showers to just plain old out houses, but in a pinch a plastic bucket lined with a plastic trash bag works just fine. Just remember to take it home with you when you leave the lake, there is way too much crap left on the lake to suit most of us.

I believe you Big Guns.

This is in the way past, so lets leave it there.

People should really think before they do something so stupid.

His names mark and I haven't seen him since I met him out on eden. He came out with a friend of mine I hadn't seen in a while. Windier than heck that day. So hes lookin and can't hold it. Never said anything to the guy. I was only foolin about payback, but you gotta admit it would be pretty **** funny to give him a big steamer on his door step.

Two years ago I bought the Luggable Loo from Fleet Farm for $10, its a 5 gallon bucket with a snap on toilet seat. We just put a small garbage bag inside of it and off you go! Sure beats digging a hole in the snow bank, and it makes it really easy to help keep the lake clean. Just toss the bag on the ice to freeze and then throw it out once you get to shore. I am pretty sure FF still has these, well worth the $10 and really makes it a lot easier than the chemical toilets since these have to be emptied and the chemicals tend to freeze.

Good luck in your selection!

      Arrowed my first in the fall of 1968, just a few days ago it seems. Last year did not go. This year not going. I could write a book with memories from archery and rifle and slug.   Withdrawals are bad but been slug hunting with son in laws family for 3 years now.  That is helping the addiction big time.  I wish you all, whatever kind of kill that deer method you prefer,  a nice smelly gut pile.

      Hows the action. Got out a couple times and it was fun.

      Thinking of trying a few spots like this tomorrow. I’ve covered the whole lake so hopefully that works. I know once I find em I’ll hammer them 
    • eyeguy 54
      I have good luck on a couple spots with steep drop offs and weeds close to the drop. I anchor shallow and cast out to the drop.

      There were a PILE of big fish caught out there today, but yeah, that wind was still pretty tough despite the warmer temps.  My boy caught a 28 1/2 and a 29!  He bested his best on the same day!

      Awesome! Sounds like fun. Staying on a lake I’ve fished a fair amount last few years and struggling. Can’t get nothing to go. Fished from 4-16 ft. Been reading some articles to use electronics to mark fish in deep water (20-30fow) so maybe I’ll give that a try tomorrow. Tried trolling for pike to and again nothing. Also tried bass fishing and yep your right nothing. Man I’m really struggling but I’ve never fished this late in the season so that doesn’t help. But I don’t think I’m the only one struggling quite a few anglers out and didn’t see any fish caught.

      Hi my name is Royce. I was a live bait addict for many years and just could not kick the habit. Every day I would have to stop at the bait store to get my fix and every night I would come home with minnow and wax worm juice all over my fingers and a lot of fish to eat and let a lot go that were YUUUUGGGGGGGe 😝😜🙃

      I was on the windy side of a small lake for the action. hit 3 spots calmer and the 4th paid off. my money spot was a snooze. LOL anchored in 10 to 12 feet and bobbered down 4 feet above the weeds.  1 inch gulp alive minnows in emerald and chartreuse on a 4mm widowmaker ice jig again. the bigger ones were biting crazy light. any small change in bobber action and set the hook for the nicer fish. Smaller ones smacked it. gills and crappies acting the same and in the same area give or take a few feet. Pinched off a weight from a different bobber and put on the comal ( I am really liking these). Just the yellow stayed above the water and easy to see the nibble. Had a boat next to me with round bobbers and they struggled bigtime.
