Anybody know where to rent a metal detector?

6 posts in this topic

I may have dropped an important metal piece out ice fishing. Anybody know where I can rent a metal detector? Hopefully I will find it in the house and not have to worry about it. Hopefully karma is good to me after finding a ipod on the ice this year and returning it to its owner.

I know people that have rented them from south suburban rental in Newport. I would give a call to the equipment rental places in your area to see if they have them also.

Ruddys rental on the south side of Forest lake has them. I assume it is for your shack out on Forest Lake. I rented one there a few years back to find a gold ring I lost while mowing the grass. Good luck!

Thanks guys. It is for a ring also. I try not to wear it when I go out because its a little big and comes off pretty easily so I took it off and put it in my pocket. Bad decision probably. I just hope its in the house so I don't have to tell the wife. Well on a good note its an excuse to make another trip out. Tunrevir- We moved the house again (I was against it though) over on lake 2 in the hole looking for some crappies. Have been catching fish but not many over 9. If you see the shack stop on my I still owe you a cold one.

My kid got a National Geographic metal detector for Christmas. It'll pick up a coin in the carpet. I think they're around $20 and available at Target. They probably won't work in the water thought.

      I may get a big ration of doodoo for this post, but here goes.  As a business owner (not food related) I guess I'm a bit confused by all of these negative posts.  The new owners (remember, they invested their money in the place) have evidently decided on a business model that they feel will work for them to be profitable.  I don't know them, don't know what their background or experience is, and it really doesn't matter.  It's their business, so they get to do with it whatever they choose.  If their model doesn't work, it stands to reason that they'll change their model, but that is entirely up to them.  There's likely a reason that the ownership of The Landing has changed several times in the last decade.  Trying to drive these owners out of business won't bring back 1980's priced cheap food and drink.   There are lots of places in many towns and cities that I choose not to eat at or visit because I don't want to pay the prices they charge.  But I don't go on the Internet and demean the owners and their places of business because I choose not to buy from them.  I'm a few times a year visitor to The Landing, and it is generally for lunch off the lake.  If I thought it was too expensive I simply wouldn't go back.  Vote with your dollars, not your posts on this forum.  Get a Trip Advisor or Yelp account and post a review if it's that important for you to vent.   The alternative for all of you of course, is that if anyone else has a model where they can charge half as much and still make a profit (not likely), well maybe that person ought to buy The Landing and give us all cheap food and drink.  We'll line up at the dock for you.  It's the old "put your money where your mouth is" adage.  The fact is, most of the old favorite local establishments you talk about have been in the same family for years or generations, and the owners make a living because of low overhead.  Someone investing in a new venture has lots to pay for, and as you all know, owning anything on a lake, and especially on Vermilion in Greenwood Township, is not a low-cost endeavor.   Let's support those who choose to invest in these expensive pieces of real estate on our lake (or at least not disparage them in these posts), and help them to keep them open.  Time to forget about getting $1 tap beers and $2.50 hamburgers, when the owners have to pay 2017 overhead costs.  Guys, the 80's want their lunch tab back.

      It's pretty driveable out there.

      I must have missed it, but where are the fish pictures?

      And when they do, they'll hire a guide.
