Some of the misinformation in this post needs to be corrected or you could put a fellow LSFer in a very controversial/potentially dangerous situation.

All docks are NOT public property. Lakeshore property owners have riparian rights to the water and, in most circumstances, own the lakeshore down to the low water level mark. As part of their riparian rights, property owners are allowed to install private docks from their property into the lake. This dock remains their property as part of their rights of owning lakeshore. Property owners cannot exclude people from fishing navigable water around their dock but they can certainly stop people from using or anchoring on their dock.

In regards to the original post, I would retrieve the lure from a public safety perspective. While the dock remains private property, there are exigent circumstances to enter into private property to retrieve a potentially dangerous piece of property. It's the same rule for trespassing. As a dock owner, I would be very appreciative of your efforts to retrieve a lure before my daughter ran out there and then I have to deal with a treble hook in the foot.

To simplify, a dock in a public lake is like a car in a public parking lot. Other individuals can walk around it or park next to it but simply by being in the public space, you don't lose ownership or the ability to stop people from using your car/dock.

I hope this clarifies the issue since walking onto someone's dock and fishing is a one-way ticket to being verbally assaulted, arrested, or, with some of the nut jobs out there, possibly shot.

If you're running a single house, it's probably not worth it for the headache/costs/etc. You won't need any special guide certification but make sure you have good insurance. Both to cover your property and to cover injured individuals who are renting your house.

Most estate planning can be completed electronically, if necessary. With that being said, my office has one of the best estate planning attorneys in the state but we are located in Willmar. If you can't find anyone close, I can certainly ask around as it's a fairly close-knit group that practices in that area of the law.

I really don't have sympathy for this guy as everyone else was able to get their houses off. If you can't get it off, pay to have someone else get it instead of just taking a wait and see approach. You have to take responsibility for the situations you get yourself in.

Staying in a house through Fred's Beds next week for the first time and it's my first time to LOTW since I was a kid. Any important advice I should know before I go? We decided on a sleeper so we could try to catch some pout in the evenings.

We are planning on doing most our own food but might want to drive in early in the morning to use facilities before it gets too light out, any good spots to go for breakfast that are open early?

Says bait is provided but should we bring some of our own too? They probably just provide fat heads I'd assume, should we get some shiners or something too? Is it worth setting a sucker out on a tip up trying for pike during the day?

Reading through the LOTW forum looks like gold and red and anything glow are the colors to start with. Do people use plain hooks on their set lines or is glow jig better usually.

Any help is appreciated, really just excited to get up there since the season ended a little early down here... Thanks.


I've been staying with Nels for a handful of years. I would recommend taking matches, extra trash bags and hand sanitizer. If you have a generator bring it as the houses are generator ready and have a tv/dvd player in them.

Morris Point, the resort you launch out of has a great breakfast and the omelets are awesome. Nels provides fat heads but I would bring some shiners too. Outdoors again in Baudette is a great place to stop for bait. You'll likely be fishing in 28-32 fow so pike may be hard to come by. You'll also want as many lines as possible during the day for eye and saugers since it's a heavy day bite.

Gold is always a hot color. I had a gold gem-n-eye that was magic in January. Plain red hooks are also very good.

Im purchasing a new ice castle today, I am getting a quote of $432 a year through Farmers, does that seem high?? Can anyone help me out?

2018 Ice Castle Lake of the Woods 16 feet plus v. Ac/fridge/oven. Value around 19k.


That seems way high to me. Most of the policies I've seen and been quoted are in the $100-$250 range.

Ice on most is fine to walk out and some are holding up well even for wheeler traffic. Last I checked, non-aerated lakes were holding 12-13 inches with about the first 3 or 4 being pretty rotten.

Just a thought if the total weight of the house is 4900 is it possible the frame weighs 1000 or more of that total weight?


Jriegel is spot on. The dry weight of the house is 4920 but 1500 of that is frame. The capacity of the frame is 5300 lbs. So the 17 ft rv edition is 3420 lbs of house on the frame. So you're well under the 5300 capacity.

Non rv castles in that size usually come in around 4200 lbs. The 4920 is the dry weight which includes the hydraulics. I have a very hard time believing the Berlin frame is only rated to 5300 lbs as the rv version with full propane, water tanks and gear would be over the limit. I think if you went to another dealer such as Milaca, Smokey Hills, Bullyans, you'll feel much more comfortable with the castle. Those guys sell a lot of them and know their stuff.
