Tom's Harbor?

15 posts in this topic

I've read and heard some things about Tom's Harbor that aren't very good. What is going on with that place? I saw they were holding a auction for some of the places...........is that true?

Hey Jim,

I honestly don't know what the deal is with Tom's. I think the auction was back in early September, and you had to have a $1,000 money order or something like that just to get in. I also heard something to the effect of $160,000 for a lot that's 100 feet by 40 feet. Everytime I went by there on the lake, it seemed like there was some sort of work being done on the cabins there. I'm sure soon enough all the rich playboys from the cities will show up with their jet-skis, "runabouts", and "pleasure boats"......yuck. We have enough of that already.

Yep. Us "city folks" are wrecking your lakes.

Hanson,

#1. Please point out in my post where I said that Cass was "my lake".

#2. Where in my post did I group togather the recreationalists and fishermen?

I'm not trying to be a jerk. Just please answer those questions. The "rich playboys" I am talking about are the people who come up every weekend and have absolutely no respect whatsoever for the lake or other users of the lake, no matter what region they are from. These are the people who will spend all afternoon out at Star Island getting completely drunk and tearing around the lake mindlessly. And that whole bit about the "stereotype", well, sadly it is true. A vast majority of the people who vacation here during the summer are from the cities. Some of them are very decent people, others not so much. It's the "other" group that annoys me. But this is just coming from a stereotyping, stuck-up local.......

MuskyTail,

I agree with you to a point o the city folk, BUT I also see a lot of people on the water that have boat licenses from out of state. These people rent, time share, or buy for what ever reason these places that are WAY to highly priced... But, we need these people here to help our communities survive. I know you never mentioned anything about that, but I'm just adding my two cents worth... I'm originally from Apple Valley and have been up in god's country for 14 years now... Yes I also agree with Hanson-- This is a major stereotype and I don't know when it will end... North Dakotan, Minnesotan, Cheesehead, and Farmers or Wine Makers from Iowa we all use these waters and we all have a different theory to what we call rest and relaxation... Hopefully people use common sense and enjoy the resource we have here...

On a side note:

The only accident or situation that I heard/saw this year on Cass was when one boat at half throttle took out another boat.. Everyone survived and one lady had a messed up shoulder/arm... Point is not bad compared to all the boats that were out there this year crazy.gifcrazy.gif

To elaborate a little bit more on what beef touched on, (the boat collision) ironically enough, I took the son-in-law of the guy who got hit out fishing that morning. We saw the guy drive past us about half an hour before the accident. And just when you thought there couldn't be any more irony, the topic we were talking about when he drove by was boating traffic/accidents. Twilight zone stuff, huh?

Oh and LABS....before you go on and on and on and on about the wonderful, blessed, all dominating Packers.....the deer hunting is depressing. I do, however, have 3 pounds of 50/50 beef-venison if we could make something outta that...

Lots of those Megansers on Cass. But if you can hold off the real ducks eventually show up. laugh.gif

There are Bluebills showing up but I think this year we will see most of them head to the west a little.. The report coming from the NW angle on LOW is there is between 20 thousand to 40 thousand and that they are or will be heading towards Warrod instead of Baudette... I will be back out again this week looking but I know one lake last weekend had a bunch of Bills(500-2,000) on it... With this warm weather, I'm guessing we will be duck hunting up here until the last day(I think the 27th).....

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      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.
