Boat Ramp Docks

10 posts in this topic

Hopefully the weather improves next week to get the boat out. If anyone notices docks in at the boat ramps around the area post it here.

I would think the more popular panny lakes are the ones they put in first.

You could check with fisheries, to find out when they will put in docks at different lakes.

Sparcebag,

I used to work at trails and waterways, during the summer while in college, and they just picked a day after ice out when we had time. There are 3 guys working there. 1 working year round and the others working I believe 8 months. When the 3rd guy comes back on around this time they put the docks out. We were based out of New London but we put in all the docks in around here. We go all the way out to bigstone, then follow the river to the docks on Lac and over to artichoke, we continued to mow access all the way down the river to the access on the river where Highway 71 crosses. But no docks on the river to put in.

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
