Allstate is a sponsor on FM.maybe you could get an online quote from them. I personally have all my insurance with American Family. I like them because of the few times I have had claims and have never had a problem with the claims department.

Everything I have insurance on is through Allstate. I've used them for about 20 years now. No complaints. They have treated me well the few times I had to file a claim.

I have been with American Family for 35 years with no problems. A friend switched to another insurance provider with all of his policies and they doubled his boat premium after about a year. He went back to American Family with everything.

Went with American Fam for just my boat last year and was pretty cheap. Had a problem with one boat and they covered it with no hassels. I would recommend them.

insurance guy is partial to the "Good Hands" people since I am an Allstate agent but there are lots of good companies out there. The most important things to consider are your liability coverages and also making sure you have "replacement cost" for your boat versus "actual cash value" if you have a newer boat. Not all companies offer that but be sure to discuss this with your agent. I recommend no less than $100k of liability and the premium you pay will vary with the boat's value and deductible as well as your driving record and credit history just like car insurance. As you know boats don't stop so well and if you were to hit someone in the water like a swimmer or someone who fell of a jetski you could lose your house, car and everything else if you're not properly covered due to a lawsuit or settlement. You could also hit someone elses boat and have a liability claim that way just like your car. Many homeowner policies will automatically cover your liability on small boats, usually 25hp or less so check on that with your agent also. Don't forget personal effects/boat equipment coverage either. Ask your agent questions, shop around and be careful out there and most importantly, get insurance.

      Was the bad rotator cup cause from catching to many big fish?If that's the case I'll take one for the team

      Heck of a float today!  I released 22 and biggest was just over 19.  Lotta nice sized fish.  My friend was out for the first time on the river and just 2nd time in a yak and he had a ball. Ended up with 8 after he started using my stick baits and got the hang of it.  First time up on that stretch this year.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
