Any story behind....

Anyone know the story behind the wrecked drop-down house just south of Waskish? Spotted it last Friday and saw it was still there on Monday. Just wondering...

I was wondering the same thing. You'd think the guy would at least want to salvage what was there.

Maybe it's that section of road between Waskish and Kelliher. I almost lost a snowmobile trailer with 2 sleds there last spring. The trailer ball came off of the draw bar at 55 mph and the trailer was wagging like a tail on a dog being held on by the safety chains. Unhooked, went back to Westwind, bought another ball and was on the road again. Total pit stop time was about 40 minutes, but the pucker factor was priceless.

Hard to say what happened. I do know the closer you get to the lake the faster the wheel houses go. Passed one guy pulling a wheel house south of Grand Rapids doing 55. Stopped for gas in the Rapids and passed him again doing 60-65 by Sqauw Lake, then HE passed me between Kelliher and Waskish just screaming.

What gets me is how some of the houses can stay together bouncing up and down the highway then banging across rough ice?

I'm guilty of that. I don't have a perm house I am towing. Just the portable and sometimes the 4 wheeler. But I usually haul a$$ the whole way there and get passed by pedestrians on the way home. grin.gif

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?!

      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
