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.

         Couple from prospecting some virgin ice, not a hole in site. Mission accomplished!         .....
    • Borch
      Just got off the ice and there were several cars driving around.  We ended up with 1-2 inches. We found a few willing cats today.   Enough to get a head start for the fish fry.  Keep posted as we did not find much for cats in the methhole area.

      sounds great. I hope everyone had fun great job Hoey red lake was slpw Saturday kept 2  
    • AlwaysFishing23
      I agree. With ice that only leaves foot or two max of water fish are either extremely stressed or it already winter killed. Sounds like a real nice spring gill lake though. Defiantly would try it again this winter and as other stated drill lots of holes. Good Luck!
    • eyeguy 54
      popped out for a couple hours this afternoon. first fish was this nice gill. last fish was a bit smaller. brought a nice northern home to fry up.  bite was a lot slower today than what it has been. my wiggle must have been off a bit. LOL 
    • JBMasterAngler
      Considering the lake is only 5 ft deep, the fish are probably stressed out. Once things start melting, and oxygen starts pouring back in, the fish should really turn on. It’s possible the lake may have winter killed though.

      We have Hoey, but it's easier to go off the Warroad access to get to where we normally go.

      Nice video. Thank you @papadarv NOTE:We will be updating the forums and all videos uploaded here will go straight to a player that folks can just click and watch instead of downloading and watching.

      Out Saturday afternoon doing some sight fishing with my camera on one of Chisago County lakes. Water was a bit dirty and with 26 inches of ice camera clarity was a bit lacking. Did get some nice video of the afternoon. Battery augers failed after a couple of holes so went with the Eskimo gas. Lots of fish above the weeds in 10 FOW.  EazyCam site fishingHB.mp4
