Canvas boat covers in the area

7 posts in this topic

Hey guys, I need a new cover for my Alumcraft Pro Tourny 175. I would like to stay in the area if possible. Have any of you used the local Mankato establishments for boat covers? Any suggestions - snaps or straps?

Thanks...

Mankato Tent and Awning does a good job. They are in North Mankato on Range St.

I can't remember the name of the guy, but if you get a hold of Lee at Drantel's Sales and Service, they have a guy that makes custom fitted covers, has several colors to chose from, and they are well made and fit great. They should be able to hook you up with his number and he is right in Kato.

      Sounds like putting the gear away wasn't a bad idea. Didn't relize the ice has deteriorated that much. Guess I've been to caught up in thinking about summer. Sounding like maybe get the boat out next weekend hard to say yet would like to get it on the water first as possibly taking it to lake superior in a few weeks. Thanks all for the reports keep em coming. Ooh forgot drove past crow wing lake yesterday and the north side was melted a ways from shore and away from the reeds. Just in a few hours the ice turned from white-black to dark black. With the temps forcasted it shouldn't take long now.

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!

      My goal is to fish Vermilion again someday.   I keep driving past it.
