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.

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...

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.

      The quality of walleye on fish has really amped up since the slot. I would put it up there with the St. Louis River now as far as local waters that produce quality walleye. Sometimes it's hard to catch an eye under 17"...its kinda the opposite of Island Lake. I wish the protected slot was a little longer as I don't see many over 26".

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.

      Wind was howling when we left the dock this morning and I was pretty shook up about it. A nice steady bite with decent fish made the day a real pleasure.   Good news going into the big weekend, the fish are biting.

      Is it the LaCroix Ranger Station where you pick up the permits now?
