Boat Lift Removal Service???

4 posts in this topic

After our first try on boat lift removal this weekend, I think I'm ready to see if there are any pro's to hire in the area. I got it out with the help of my neigbors, but next fall I would prefer to watch and drink a beer!

We're about 9 miles east of Walker and 15 miles east of Park Rapids. If any of you know of a reliable service (and preferably insured) please forward some information to me. Also can this service be done only in the fall? Getting our lift installed in the spring is relatively straight forward. Thanks in advance!

Solbes, I have been installing and removing docks and boat lifts in the area for about the past 5 years. I would be more than happy lend a hand in removing your boat lift!

Kenny Clyde in Walker provides this service also. Don't have any contact info but he should be in the phone book.

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff

      Assuming the ratios given to Cliff by the hatchery are accurate, then:   With Hatchery:  708 quarts X 100,000 eggs is 70,800,000 eggs.  Survival rate is (low end) 75%, so total fry is 53,100,000.  If 10% go back into Vermilion, that's net +5,310,000 new fry this year.   Natural reproduction:  70,800,000 eggs at 3% (high end) survival rate would be net +2,124,000 for vermilion this year.   5,310,000/2,124,000 is 2.5X the walleye fry in vermilion this year compared to natural reproduction.   I'd take a 250% return on pretty much anything!     Ancillary benefit is +47,790,000 fry to other MN waters.     I'm sure there's a downside, but I can't see it.

      We got onto the ice down there this winter one time and it was really easy to get on and off of the ice right there.  Looked very friendly for boat traffic and the way the rocks jog out to protect the access it is on my hit list if I need to find an access to launch from this summer.  If you use google earth you can check it out.
