Pontoon rentals

10 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone knew of a resort or somewhere I can rent a pontoon for the weekend of Oct. 11th to 14th. I know they take all the buoys out of the lake before that and some resorts don't rent out boats because of this, but I was hoping there is a resort who will. Any info would be great!

you could call moosebirds and ask if they have them that late.

How are you gonna camouflage something that size?

I already tried Moosebirds and they said they would be in Alaska at that time so they wouldn't rent any boats out at that time.

We are just trying to rent a pontoon so we can take all the kids bobber fishing during the day and the fishing boats don't have enough room in them for the kids to move around.

You could maybe post a request to someone on the forum willing to rent/guide their own personal pontoon for the day. If I owned one, I'd take you out for the price of the gas and a six pack! cool.gif

We don't rent pontoons at Shamrock any more. You could also try Fortune Bay Marina...

SkunkedAgain, thanks for the offer! I would have no problems paying for the gas and a 6 pack! But lets make it a 12 pack instead! grin.gif

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.

      Hey eyes one thing nice is you have reveres to help clean out your holes

      Thanks Cliff! I've been very closely monitoring Pike Bay the last few weeks I'm not far from you as the crow flies right on the bay. Still sitting at 4-5 inches of ALL refroze slush. No good ice. It's flooding over pretty good with 1-3 inches water with the couple inches snow still on top. Hopefully the cold penetrates that snow and gets things going so I can run the sled right up the bay to McKinley by next weekend.

      The ice on the small pond on the west side of the road heading into SJU was able to hold my weight (which is substantial, alas).  I didn't have a chisel, and I wasn't about to go any further out.  Still, very good sign.  I'm sure there'll be guys out by the end of the weekend, if not sooner.
