Fish houses

Anybody else pilling there permanent off? I am not sure if I should pull it or not yet. This warm weather makes me a little nervous. I am out on Maple.

2 years ago on Buffalo, we woke up to 3" of running water on the lake. It looked like we were floating on a river! Make sure you've got tire chains or a studded snowmobile to pull it off. We didn't. One of the wheels got stuck in a hole and about an hour later, we finally got the house moving.

Ugh. I remember tugging my house off in a windy, warm, winter day in goloshes and ice cleats a couple years ago... Nasty.

i dont have to hehehe its stil in the yard. and if we have learned anything about warm temps and winds it is that the ice on the down wind side will melt very quickly and could cause your house to drop in like many i have seen. ice hasnt been to favorable as it is. at least make sure you get them moved off of your holes the wind swirlling around under a house with holes already open will eat ice fast as well. good luck and keep them dry. .... paul

That same day on Buffalo, I watched a portable that somebody left out there float across the lake in the mini-rapids.

Mine has been sitting in the yard all year too, the lake tried to eat it a couple years ago. similar conditions, Not again, been fishing out of the portable all year. If I had a permanent out there I would be checking on it.

I was thinking is this even minnesota anymore?? This is not even close to funny anymore. I would love it to be around 20 right now with 6" of snow on the ice. Tomorrow if there is too much water I will bring my house a few feet from shore or on shore. I HATE THIS ARRR mad.gif

I left my shack in the garage, i'm using my fish-trap to get out. This is not the minnesota we had ten to twenty years ago. If some didnt plow a road guys without snowmobiles you didn't get there. I think this is the winter they once had in southern Iowa.

I pulled it off on Friday along with a few others. Like you said, "Better safe than sorry". I left it sitting at the landing. I guess we'll see what this week brings for weather. Man, this is the most frustrating winter I have ever had. What the heck is going on?

      The mayflies are just starting in Frazier Bay.  We could see a few in the boat the last couple of days.  Then started seeing big trails on water yesterday and today.  I just got done cleaning 3 walleyes and they were full of them.

      Have the Mayflies started.  We are coming up end of July and trying to see what the time line for them are this year.  Not sure how the late ice out would effect the hatch.  Thanks in advanced.

      67 degrees today in big bay. No fish today for me.

      Just an update, walleye are still hanging on the week edges.  I caught mine in 8-10FOW again.  Lost one that was 4-5lbs.  Best part, I have yet to use livebait this open water season.  Basically the same technique as last week.     Only issue is finding the weeds that hold the fish.  Same as last week, just looking on SI, finding small transitions between weed edge, soft/hard bottom ect.     Once you find them, then you can spot lock/talon down and cast at them.     And, as before all fish were released.

      Saturday and Sunday were tough days on the water, NW winds post cold front. Got better yesterday and today. Took a retired friend out today and sent him home with 4, should have been 6 but I was off my game. Water Temps around 70. Unfortunately can only fish Thursday as I have to work a few days, this weekend. Safe travels on the Independence weekend!

      Wasn’t quite sure how this week would turn out because of all the reviews but have had a blast and caught some awesome fish. Very weedy in most of the lake canoe out to less weedy area and fished around the weeds caught multiple 4  even heavier bass in a row definitely recommend it
