BOAT LANDING PARKING !!!!!

Question

gregg52

I was at a BOAT landing yesterday this paticluar one was on Leech

There should be signs posted NO SINGLE CARS !!!!

There was 2 single suvs parked in trailer spots

I had to park down the road and back up a 1/4 of mile to get back to the

landing to load (not a big deal for me as I drive truck) could be a problem

for some and a nuisance in the roadway of passing traffic

there was also a trailer just sitting in a spot this I dont have to much of problem with if some took the vehicle somewhere, but if for some reasopn they split that the need a kick in the a$$

Some will say I'm going with guide,then you park down the road outa the way

or meet the guide some where and ride with him these are pulbic landings not free parking for businesses

not to mention I had to walk and extra half mile,which is not a real big deal ,but still

So it didn't actually say 'no cars'? Then no foul in my opinion. Someone could park car to shore fish, or go for a walk, swim, whatever. And you know what- they got up earlier in the morning than you to get the spot ;-)

On the other hand. I was with my kids at the lake/park the other day. There ARE signs saying trucks/trailers only and separate area parking for vehicles only/no trailers. Some A-hole that couldn't fit in the trailer area took his trailer off and took up two 'vehicle' spots. So, we couldn't park and use the playground equipment. It takes all kinds of idiots that's for sure.

Yeah, it's frustrating when people park where they're not supposed to. But like Alagnak asked, does it say "No parking without trailer"? Or "Trailer parking only"?

Don't take this personally Gregg but I'm going to share my story:

I was left a nasty note on my truck at Burntside in Ely one day when I parked (without a trailer) on the lower level and jumped in a buddy's boat for the day. The signs in front of all the stalls clearly states "No overnight parking", nothing about without a trailer.

The note said "These spots are for not for car parking...." and some other comments... I just had to chuckle and go about my business. There are no car only spots at Van Vac access and the rule is if you're overnight parking, you stay on the upper level.

Whether you're pulling a trailer or not, it's still the same walk for a person from the outskirts parking to the ramp. Why should you get a break if you show up later because you're pulling a boat? First come, first served is the rule for public parking. When you show up early to jump into someone elses boat, you take what's legally available. A person has no idea how many people will be trailering in for the day and it's not their responsibility to be a parking monitor.

Read the signs.

Peace out. grin

Fyi...if u do not not have a trailer and another vehicle does' t either, please park in the same stall as not to waste 2 spots. Saw 3 vehicles waste 3 spots at farm lake access and pretty sure they were staying at the cabin down the road...

Yep if there is no sign then the courteous thing to do is pull all the way to the front of the spot so someone can park behind you and double park whenever you can.

I could be wrong but I thought it was illegal to park a vehicle without a trailer at any "long" stall at a boat ramp?

I had to chuckle to myself (again) when I saw these new additions at Van Vac last weekend.

I should've parked on the upper level though since I pulled my boat with a truck. wink

Bottom line here fella's is this: 2 things which seem to unfortunatly getting in shorter and shorter quantities in society today. 1)Good old common sense 2) Common respect for your fellow man. If a person uses one or the other or in the best case scenario both at the same time, issues like this and many other petty issues would be less abundant. It goes for just about anything! We shouldn't need a sign or a list of rules or somebody standing there telling us what to do or where to do it in order to do the right thing out of respect for everyone else........carry on!

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys
    • Wanderer
      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
