Anyone else pulling houses off?


TV BOY

Question

I pulled my house off the other night, not enough snow to bank it anymore. Now with the rain---what a mess. I didn't want to deal with a house frozen to the ice.

more so thru the ice as the temps AND warm winds will melt away fast on the side away from the wind. with minimum ice that we have this year two to three days will be enuff to get them droppin in.

you made a good choice to get yours off. mine has been and willl be parked in the yard. rain in january could bring pains in feburary. i read that some where. .... paul

I was on Washington south of St.Peter last night and today and yes many are taking thier permanent houses off or pulling them to shore.There is a fair amount of water on the ice this aft.,and probably worse as our april weather hits next week.Better safe than froze in.

I regret to say that I have pulled my house off also. Wading out to the house isn't bad, but It was as good a day as any to take it off, and I still don't feel comfortable driving the family out, so I guess I'll call it a year and dust off the suitcase for now. Oh well, it just means I have a better chance of getting on a bite and following it. Good Luck! McGurk

Its been so warm this year a person doesnt really need a house to stay reasonably comfortable while fishing. I cant remember the last time I used my heater in my portable.. its been more of a hassle to drag the extra weight than it is comfort of heat when its 40 degrees?

A year like this it might be wise to get the house off early, especially if it takes a truck to move the house. The ice might not stay good in many locations for a vehicle. Better safe than sorry.

      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
