Boating the river

4 posts in this topic

Looking to take the family out to the river for some boating/sight seeing. We have never gone to the river so I am looking for some advise. We will be going during the middle of the week to avoid the masses. Any place to swim? Where is the best place to put in at?

Go to the St. Croix, cleaner, more scenic, good areas to a swim and you won't have to decontaminate after swimming.

i agree. i dont think i'd be swimmin in pool 2. there is a reason there arent any public beaches there like there are on the croix.

Sightseeing on pool 2 is best in the fall. The tree colors along the river are great. not a swimming pool. wink.gif

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
