Welders?

7 posts in this topic

Anyone know of someone in the area that is good at welding and building stuff? I've got my own welder and can use it but I'm lazy and busy fishing blush.gifsmirk.gif

I've got an old camper converted to a fish house and want to put crank up wheels on it. I also have a Boss plow mount that's cracked.

Scott --

Tried to call you back and kept losing you. I would call Tony's Repair just north of Hawley on 33. He does a little of everything and he has fixed my fishouse a couple of times. Tell him I sent you.

Also -- ask him if he dumped his "Old Mill" habit for Coors Light yet. cool.gif

There is a guy near Vergas that is good and CHEAP! I bought a boat lift from him that lifts my Pro V 1900 and paid $150 (he has more!). He also has docks and other misc. stuff. Now back to the question... he owns and operates a welding business. The name of the company is Northland something... Fabrication? Anyway, I would definitely check him out. He has the welder on the truck, so there would be no hauling involved.

Sorry this took so long to respond... I have been busy lately mad.gif There are a few ways I have come to know a few people in the area. We rented a cabin on Star this past summer... and I have an aunt and uncle that live about 5 miles from Vergas. My uncle actually found this welder on Swap and Shop grin.gif The ol' uncle is a Swap and Shop junkie and loves to call in. I told him that I was looking for a boat lift and the next thing I know I got one for dirt cheap.

      Like the food and like the menu. Like the fact there are places to eat on the lake and will continue to support them.

      Thanks, cigar guy.   Might check into it next year.  Or maybe not.   They always used to have some expensive entrees but we just ignored them.   

      Even 12 for a burger is sort of high for the area, but the view is worth something.   Probably stay with the Crescent.   I don't see how there are enough tourists for the landing to make it.

      I have put my guide clients on lots of pike this summer. So far largest bass is 21"- 5lbs  Pike 36" Approx. 8-9lbs, Walleye is 23 inches 3lbs. The walleyes will get better as the water cools. Time to start jigging, everything you got. I'm even started using my crankbaits.

      I'm a local and yes we boycott the place. Friends have been told that they aren't wanted there that they only want the tourist business. Wife and I boat to Wolf Bay when we go out. We live 2 miles from the landing and wish it was still run by Jack.

      Well I made a decision to put the trolling rods away and go do some jigging.   It seemed to be a good one.  I concentrated on rocky transition areas.  I had three slot fish in an hour.  Went back in for some VC pizza and picked my kids up and went back out for a evening trolling run and that produced as well.  You have to love this lake.

      We have friends up and they wanted to take us out for dinner, via the boat.  With the wind, the only place was the landing, I tried vetoing It, but lost out.  Had $12.00 burger and fries.  Very good and the service was fast-only 8 others in the dinning area and a few at the bar.  I checked the prices on the wings-$16.00 for 1-1/2lbs.  Del, they had a pretty good burger menu.  I asked about the 20% off deal and the waiter blew me off and said he didn't know anything about it.  I asked who I should talk to, he said the manager or the owner.  We paid the bill and left without asking.  I liked it a few winters ago when they had ,25 wings and 2.00 beers.

      First off I am not a waterfowl hunter, so this info is second hand.

      Here in the Morrison/E.Todd cty area, the hunt really seemed slow considering the weather conditions.  Although a few birds were shot early in morning the day seemed slow by most accounts around here.

      Good luck to all.
