Bouys

2 posts in this topic

This past weekend my fishing buddy and I were up on the pond. We caught some nice picture fish and brought 1 home for eats. We battled the east wind and of course left the rain gear at home. It was a very enjoyable outing (all be it wet towards the end). On our way back to the landing (Cove) though, we noticed that the bouys were not lit at all. It was around 11:00 so it was pretty dark and we strained to see any of the markers. Has this always been the case? If so, with the increased amount of traffic on the lake wouldn't you think they should be lit? confused.gif

cove is very difficult to find in the dark. if theres any wind it only makes it harder. the markers have reflective tape on them but you need a big spotlight... of course if you have a gps and remembered to turn it on at the landing, you just have to follow your trail in. last saturday i noticed the green bouys were not all that green. you can still tell the difference though.

just read the slot report... maybe that will ease the pressure and traffic?

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!

      I don't have much skin in the game here.  I take 2 trips a year to Vermilion and absolutely love the lake, area and in particular the West side.  Without question, our goal is to own a property on this lake for retirement.    People hate change.  Simply don't go if you don't like the prices or the new owners.  The restaurant/bar business is a bitch so I say kudos for trying something different.  With any business, previous owners don't let go of gold mines so there was a reason it was for sale.     I'll be a patron the few weeks I'm up there.  If I don't like it, I won't go back.  Premium prices demand premium quality and service.  I hope they succeed.

      Don't believe I've made one single point actually. I've just been honest. Very rare thing on the internet. I'm sure you understand that.
