I'm Back

Well it has been 3 months since i broke the transom of my boat in half. Tonight I put the finishing touches of my massive reconstruction project together, slapped on the earmuffs and started it up. Felt good. Gnna go out on Sunday but I suppose it will be raining, guess I will have to get out my unbrella. I hope my boat doesn't leak would be hard to tell in the rain. When I pulled the motor off with my cherry picker and tried to pull the broken transom out in once peice so I could trace out the new wood, the existing wood transom came out in handfulls, I actually used my shop vac to remove most of it. I have never seen anything like it. Well 60 trips to Macs hardware and Lowes, 2 stops at sears to replace broken tools, and 27 stainless steal rivots (my hands still ache) I am ready to fish. Any one had any luck anywere Latley?

      Noon hour today a skid steer on tracks was down clearing the bottom of the awesome boat ramp at Wheelers Point.  This NCOR Update features Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts....It is "game on" all the way along the river now.

      I've wondered why there are no saugers on Vermilion.  Lots of them up at lake of the woods and fun "bonus" fish to catch.  Probably an easy answer but wondering thoughts.

      River is open to the Wheelers Point Boat Landing today (backhoe was working on it at noon so it is only a few minutes away).  Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts joins me on this update.  Lots of good info here.

      Good luck!  Always a fun time of year!   I just finished my last day of ice fishing this season on 19 inches of ice yesterday in Ely.  Today I drove to Maple Grove and saw three boats on the lakes on the way down.   I used to be one of those guys.
