Boat Lift Removal

6 posts in this topic

I am on the East end. Who would you recommend and how much should I expect to pay...would like to have the boat lift lifted out and stored as our shore line is pretty steep. Thanks in advance for your help.

Go to lakevermilion(dot)com and look for Lakeshore Services, there should be a couple of barge services listed there.

Or eat more Wheaties.

I have found that it is pretty easy to do yourself using a cable and comealong. I attach the cable ends to the 2 legs nearest shore, and then pull in the center, being careful not to get hung up & bend the legs. The closer you pull to the bottom the better.

Otherwise there are dock services in the area that will do it for you.

I have used Eagle Docks for the last 14 years. They just sold the business to a new owner and I am hopeful that he will be as reliable and dependable as the previous owner. My last few bills have been $85. for fall removal and then another $85 for Spring install.

I recieved a letter from Wally (the old owner) thanking me for my business and recommending the new owner. The new owner also sent a letter and I am looking forward to many more years of great service from him. Thanks for the "nod" on the new guy and best of luck to him.

Bobber down, Tommy Tadpole

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I sent you a private message.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
