where to park-

2 posts in this topic

may be a bit of an odd question- but does anyone have any wisdom on where a guy could park a pickup and boat during the weekday while at work within a quick walk of the U of M East Bank campus? I work on campus and would like to get out on the water down here some days after work, and somehow I don't think that the university parking people would appreciate me bringing my boat into the ramps!

thanks in advance~

Good luck. Non ramp parking within a quick walk of east bank? HA! cool.gif And if you leave it in a street spot, you are just asking to be ripped off - Dinkytown, Stadium Village, etc. I'd bring it in the big ramp on 4th ave SE and 17th and head to the roof level, the h3ll with 'em, just watch the swing arm. I lived down there for 6 years, West Bank, East Bank, Como Ave - my locked truck got broke into on the street three times in three years, I eventually left everything out of the truck, stripped off the tint, didn't replace the radio, and left it unlocked to save my windows. If parking on the street or in a surface lot, I'd make sure everything is locked and out of sight! And don't ever park on the same street in the same place with the boat twice - it's the second or third times that you will get ripped off! mad.gif I'd put it in a suburban park-n-ride and take the bus, myself!

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
