I'm not really in favor of participating in a hijacking of this incredibly important box fan thread, but perhaps you've heard of my holiday bakery, "Season's Eatings"?

Dang it... Do you think they have picked up the garbage yet????

My brother-in-law has a small row boat with holes. If the blad was in good shape, I could have used it to rig up an outboard for him! It is too hard to row and bail at the same time!

[image]839724001525md.jpg[/image] The box fan in better days, found doing a family search. It was found in a cigar box at one of the cabins here at Lake Iwanttobethere. It was first used to cool a cabin then was relocated never to return. It was noted as being the only heir in some recent documents uncovered. There were some identifying stickers..

That old fan loved baseball, always sported a K.C. royals sticker, even during the down times,(all the time). That old girl just quit running on me i sure wish someone could have put in a new motor and cleaned her up so she could run again.............

Bobby, I don't think that's the same fan. The one in your pic has 5 blades.

I am sure if this fan had 5 blades, it would have gone in a jiffy.

In my heart of hearts, I feel this post should be stickied to the top permanently. This post is what has me coming back to the free things only section to browse. It puts me to tears from laughing. It really does cheer up a bad day with a re-read.

Sorry TRZ

I hope nobody gives away the secret spot where the fan is, or everybody will be hooging it, and somebody else will whine that the best spots are always given away. My guess is this fan is located in MN and is giving off some cool air.

Are people attracted to fans as bad as they are to bouys? Maybe have to start setting out dummy fans... tongue.gif

The fan was thrown in a dumpster behind Cub. It either went to the garbage burning facility or is in a land fill. Either way it is gone. I bought one a couple weeks ago (after I could not get a response back form owner of fan) and paid about $6.oo for a new one.

It sure is keeping me cool now and exhausting fumes out of my garage at same time. !

The way TRZ talked about the fan, one would think he is a fan pimp! grin.gif

Heartattack caught on....It was supposed to be a play on the many posts where you aren't supposed to give away honey holes. If somebody lets out the whereabouts of the fan, the whole forum and anybody that just reads the forum will be there hogging all the cool air and not doing C&R.

i did finally let the fan go to a better place aka "fan heaven". i was able to pry off the unicorn sticker for my new fan but the poor roayals sticker is in about the same position as the team=SOL . Too bad somebody sure could have stayed cool during this hot dry summer, it was great for blowing dust as well....... grin.gif

The fan is in "fan heaven" cooling St. Peter and pushing all the rain away from here so we can fish and people can rebuild from the flooding.

once it cools down you could always use the fan to blow warm air up from the warm basement. It would help save on heating costs!!! Low and behold there was a year-round use for this fan! I am sure others didn't realize it before it was left at those GPS cords!!!

It's going to be a warm one this weekend and I'll be up at the shack. I sure could have used that fan with the stickers. (Contact Us Please)....!

      Rick G, how many times did Hairy bite until you hooked it?

      If you intend to fish past Sunday, you'll need a new 2021 angling license.   Additionally, the deadline to remove permanent/overnight fish houses is Monday in the southern half of the state.  If found unattended over night beyond the deadline, enforcement officials can confiscate the house itself.

      Was that you out fishing by the mouth of H.O.L. Bay last evening? We went out towards Wakemup, marked a few but not takers.

      Well I sure picked the wrong week to be up at the lake! I certainly enjoy the coldest of days more than this spring weather in February. Seeing the sun is nice, but I'd rather see that at the end of March versus now. What powder there was on the lake is virtually gone. On the plus side, the snow base is solid and good for 4-wheelers as well as sleds. Hopefully we get 6-12" of snow soon and then we will have some great riding conditions. I didn't ride the trails, but did ride quite a bit in the woods. Things are getting bare.   Edit - I just walked outside....it's snowing! I should have complained sooner...

      At the risk of sending this thread further off the rails, let's talk "slots". There is nothing majic about a protected slot limit (PSL). It can be a useful tool if your spawning stock NEEDS some protection, or if there is demand for growing larger fish.  All of the lakes you mention have had a PSL in the past, and some still do.  The most used PSL originally, protected all fish from 17-26 inches, because that protection covered almost all the mature females in a population (and lots of mature males). The thought at the time was that if some spawners are good, more is better, or at least can't hurt.  Wrong! Almost all those lakes have since adjusted those PSLs, or eliminated them. Red closed the fishery during restoration, then used the PSL while spawning stock still NEEDED some protection. Upper Red has since abandoned the PSL all together for much less restrictive, one over 17", or 20" regulations. Both allow considerable harvest of spawners. The other lakes mentioned have all experienced some stockpiling of excess spawning stock and suppression of new year classes, causing managers to make multiple adjustments to allow more harvest and free up productivity. Lake of the Woods, which you didn't mention started out with a 19.5-28" PSL to be more compatible with Ontario's regulation (50cm). That worked out well because it allowed considerable harvest under the PSL, reducing spawner density before they grew into the PSL.  Finally there's Mille Lacs which has continued with very restrictive harvest regulations, currently with a closed summer season, no PSL, but insted a two inch harvest slot limit.  Lot's of large fish, an abundance of spawning stock, but recruitment of new young fish has been dismal.  Now can we get back to discussing why a statewide bag limit reduction applied across all Minnesota walleye lakes, natural or stocked, makes no sense?

      Thanks everyone for the reassurance! Everything was fine but not a thing was biting and nothing even appeared on text book perfect sand bars 😭

      If Smurfy thinks it’s safe you could drive a car hauler full of Ford Rangers on it. 🤭

      Two feet of ice is going to take a little bit to damage it.   You will know when it's time to quit driving out.  access points are usually the fish to show how bad the ice is deteriorating.
