Lightning knocked out my Stanley chain drive which I never had a problem with. Replaced it with a Chamberlain chain drive. I think a door in good working order is probably more important. I bought what was on sale and something that had the a remote light switch and two remotes. I piggybacked an outdoor light to it.

I have a Wayne Dalton chain drive for an aluminum door. It does the job, but it sounds like the house is about to fall down when I open/close the garage. If I had to do it over again, I'd definitely get a belt drive because they are the most quiet and least maintenance. You will eventually need to replace the belt, but you're talking years down the road (10 years or more). You can get a fully loaded Chamberlain Whisper Drive for under $200.

Good Luck!

      It is a bad idea.  It can spread disease and invasive species.   Don't do it.     Besides, the minnows swim away and within a short time are dispersed so the fish wouldn't see them as a big attraction.

      For the summer trip, there are many nice resorts to choose from.   Depends on what you are looking for.   If you want walleye, choose something on the Tower end.  If more Bass, Musky, or Northern then either end of the lake.       There is a fair amount of variation in amenities and price among the various resorts, with many to choose from.

      Would love to get together, but still in recovery from shoulder surgery. I will be attending the Ruffed Grouse Society Birds and Brews gathering and the Pheasants Forever Greet and Meet in Cambridge at the Pizza  Pub and Sidelines respectively in February. RGS on the 2nd at 5:30 and PF on the 20th at 5:30. No cost - just fun.

      As far as I know there are no resorts that rent fish houses on Vermilion. You could try Pike Bay Lodge though. Great place! Cliff

      Ha. Nope. Those are just my numbers. The other guys got 25-35 each per day.    The purpose of posting the info I did is to point out that the sky is not falling. There are still a ton of fish in the lake, just have to find them.
