Maintenance On Public Access Channel Markers

3 posts in this topic

Having returned recently from another trip to Mille Lacs I can't help but notice that the channel markers at the Sha-Bosh-Kung Public Access have fallen into a state of disrepair. I fish a lot after dark and in the past having the lighted channel markers has been helpful since the channel is quite shallow. Being able to line the markers up is useful in keeping the boat in the middle of the channel. This year, however, the lights on both markers are out and with this last trip the red marker has disappeared. Who is responsible for the maintenance of these markers? I'm thinking either Mille Lacs County or the DNR but does anyone know for sure?

How do you like that comment about being happy you have anythng at all. The resorts and marina's that have their own ramps don't care about public access. They would rather you pay to use their's. I probably shouldn't get started on this one.............
