Talk to the guys at Dalton boat dock place. They have a nice used dock they took out last fall for me. I needed something slightly different. Ask for Bill. I'm sure you can buy it reasonably.......dang it!!Ha! frown.gif

There is a guy near Vergas that has three or four used docks. His name is Kyle. He was reasonable with a boat lift I got from him last year ($250 - lifts my 19.5 pro v). I went back for a dock and if I remember right, he wanted $10 a foot. I declined so that may motivate him to decrease the price a little bit. It is definitely worth checking out though? He is a welder with a yard full of odds and ends.

Now that I think about it, it was $20 a foot. It wasn't worth that, but he is a bargainer. I would've paid $10 a foot.

Yeah... at least I did last year. I bought a trailer between Lida and Crystal last Sept. so I will be there this year. My lift is still over on Star and he is going to modify it for me in the next few days.

Hope it works out for you... Kyle is great to work with. He has at least one really decent dock and has been really great to work with (he wasn't going to charge me for the work I needed done on the lift, until I told him that I made my own modifications to it and created a new problem that needed some welding crazy.gif)

Ya It looks like it will work out great.I thought you might be someone I met on star ice fishing at the end off the year he was from Fargo but I think he had a cabin on the west arm he has been there for 20 years I thought if that was you what a small world If you fish star in the summer look out for a 18ft blue fine stop and say HI there are not to many people with blue fins boats around here it's written right on the side in blue and once again thank you for the lead.

Sheldon is by the Nursing home on the NW corner of Otter Tail Lake, just up the road from Ken's bait. Do not know if he gives any deals on used docks but he has a ton on hand.

      Shagawa in Ely has a public beach.  That's the closest to Bear Head that I know of.  You'd have to launch a ways across the lake but you could just motor over to it.

      Sorry for late response.  The Gander in Eden Prairie had quite a few...

      Catfishing is pretty stable right now. The water is getting very low making the north end of Grand Forks begin to get sketchy for travel.  The lack of current has the fish spread out also.  Stay on the move and when you land of fish you should have no trouble catching them.  The best areas have been anywhere you can find more current than the surrounding area.  The middle of the River in mid range holes has also been a good place to look. 
        Bait has changed for me this week with frogs being the hands down number one so far.  Sucker and goldeye have been working too.  I still believe getting bait in front of the fish is is the key more than what the bait is but try it all.   Remember the I-29 Catfish Classic is in just 2 weeks.

      Made it out last night. Beautiful night. Caught a bunch of Crappies, sunnies, a norsky and a few walleyes. All CR. Amazing how quiet the lake was. I was the only boat out for the most part. First boat in parking lot at 5:30 and no AI inspector this time. Have not seen them for quite awhile now.... Water temp was 78. Panfish were caught on simple Jig/plastic in about 12 feet along shoreline weeds. Walleyes on spinner/crawlers in 17-20 on midlake structure.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.
