House Orientation

Recommended Posts

Mike L

My heater vents out the starboard side. Any thoughts on setting up the house when then wind is honkin' like it was on Saturday? Vent downwind or crosswind?

I'm scared of CO poisoning as my mom's neighbor died in a fish house a few years back from the CO.

allways leave a window open a couple of inches, i know its a waste of heat and you might have to keep hot water going to pour over your holes but it's worth staying alive smirk.gif

buy a carbon monoxide detector....this is a must in a fish house IMO!!!! even with the windows cracked you can still get carbon monoxide poisoning.....not as likely but still possible.....

Mike, I have a vented wall mount as well, with a baffled outlet. (cover about 1 inch off outlet) I have not noted any change from wind, but I would suggest somewhere between cross and downwind, thus allowing the air flow to easily carry co2 vapors away and not push them into the house.

You can never be too careful, good luck fishing, Brent

      We fished the small lake a few week back the water was really high. No luck with bass around the pads tried Texas rigged worms and spinner baits, we did find crappies in 8-10" around Lilly pads and reeds crappies were caught on panfish leaches and small glow jigs.

      Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

      A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you.
