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.

Most of the lakes around my area docks go in toward the end of April

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.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
