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

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.

      Thanks All.   No big plans this weekend and and the weather has been putting a damper on outdoor projects and choirs.    Still I might sneak out for a few hours this weekend.

      In and around narrows is where most people were fishing.  Lots of fish under 14 though.

      I guess I will have to call the dnr about the couple spots I am in question of. Ones a darn and you can easily pick them off all day almost year round

      Thanks for the great report.  We fished up there all last week, and we found shiners to be the only bait we *couldn't* get bites on. Very, very strange, but by far our best bite was on crawlers.  I think our total was something like 8 fish on shiners and 80 or 90 on crawlers (between two boats).  We didn't start fishing with crawlers until Thursday, either, so all those fish came on our last two days, with the windier Thursday being best.
