Campbell/Otter lake

3 posts in this topic

Hey the lake up above the dam -- is it deep enough to launch a pontoon boat for slow-boat pleasure riding around the campground / sanctuary area? There's a relay for life event there next Friday and I was hoping to get the pontoon in there that evening. I heard they were drawing the water down on the resovoir and didn't know the status as of yet.

Any help would be appreciated. Is the water much much lower than normal up there? The ramp is over by Cenex in that little lagoon, I wonder if there's even water there.

The water isn't flowing over the dam, but I would guess it's deep enough for a pontoon. I saw a ski boat out there a week or so ago cruising slowly near the park where they do the water skiing.

I'll check out the ramp at the park, but there is also a ramp on the west side of School Road bridge by Robert's Field (baseball diamonds).

Great, thanks for the info. If they're skiing out there, then slow pontooning should be a cakewalk. If you get a chance to check out the ramp, let me know.

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
