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.

Keep your hook sharp, Tommy Tadpole

He will be. His name is Eric Olson and he's a great kid. Give him a chance.....

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

      1-18-17 Fishing Report. The fishing on LOTW remains fairly consistent in the last week with several Walleyes and Saugers in the 12.5-16 inch range being brought up the holes mixed in with a few larger sized perch,pout and tullibees in the 30-33 feet of water range. Meanwhile,in the 16-20 feet of water range the bite remains fairly steady with both smaller and keeper sized walleye and saugers being caught. The bite in both depths seems to not really pick up until around 10 am most days and seems to almost slow down around 4 pm. Live fat heads have been the bait of choice using a plain red hook or a glow in the dark pink or gold gem-n-eye on a dead stick,jigging a minnow has been effective as well using clam jigs or a demon jigging spoon or charmer with glow in the dark pink,green or hammer gold being the colors of choice. Heading into the weekend with the warmer weather continuing to move in we remind you to please,check with a resort,outfitter or bait shop before venturing out on the big lake as the ice conditions may change daily. We hope to see everyone on beautiful Lake of the Woods very soon!

      Wondering if anyone has been out on Christmas yet this year. Thinking about going this weekend and live a ways away. I know it is one of the later lakes to freeze up. Thanks in advance.

      It sounds like there definitely can be a worthwhile night bite.  The type of structure seems to dictate how good it can be. "Smaller" humps, or structure by itself seems to produce better then the breaklines along the numerous flats.  It seems "smaller" structure topping out 10 to 15 feet surrounded be deeper water is best.   Good luck, and report back.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.
