Here are the places that our boat storage customers have had great luck with:

Central Lakes Docks Service- 218-824-6033 or 218-820-5812

Matt's Dock Service-218-232-4088

Just tell them you talked to Jason and Dave at Sportland. They'll take good care of you.

Matt is Da'Man!!! He came out promptly and got my stuff in the water. Thanks for the referral Jason. I already gave Matt's Dock Service 3 more jobs.

So is anyone still putting docks in on Pelican before opener? Bradow's decided they didn't want to do ours after agreeing to do so. They just left it out after doing all the others on the lake, making us not very happy. We are trying to get it in this week or the beginning of next week.

Walleyedan, I have a word to put after classic, but I would most likely be kicked off this site. And a word to the wise, I wouldn't suggest him publicly again. Friends or not.

All is not lost. Matt is helping us out. We will be on the lake, ready to go.

Sorry for your bad experience. They are the busiest dock service around the Gull Lake area, they must be something right. It's hard to please everyone all of the time I guess, I do know that they are hard working people and I enjoyed fishing with Carl, Lon and some of their crew on Mille Lacs last year.

As you can probably guess my frustration was getting the better of me. When I found out that my dock was not in and the earliest would be mid June, I kind of lost it. I am sure they do a good job, but then again they didn't do mine, thus the bad opinion. I am much calmer now that I know that Matt can get it in this weekend. Now the only thing I can get mad about is the water level. Who is responsible for that and I will be sure to give them an earful. Just kidding.

Sorry Walleyedan, you give great advice all the time, I was just upset with the lack of performance from those guys. Hopefully it was the exception not the rule, and from what you say about them, its probably true.

Now I just have to get on the lake and lower the blood pressure.

      Thanks for the update , Don.  Some of the smaller bodies of water in our area capped over last night. I'm hoping there will be walkable ice somewhere by the weekend

      The deadline for firearms wild turkey hunters to apply for early season spring hunting permits is Friday, Jan. 27, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The spring season, which runs from Wednesday, April 12, to Wednesday, May 31, is divided into six time periods. Only people age 18 and older who want to hunt using a firearm during the first two time periods (A or B) need to apply for a spring turkey permit. Permits for the remaining time periods (C-F) can be purchased over-the-counter. Archery and youth turkey hunters can hunt the entire season without applying for the lottery. Permits for the last three time periods and youth licenses are sold starting March 1. Surplus adult licenses from the first two time periods, if available, are sold starting around mid-March. People applying for permit area 511, the Carlos Avery State Wildlife Management Area, are advised that the sanctuary portion of the WMA will be closed to turkey hunting except for the special hunt for hunters with disabilities. For turkey hunting, a person may only use shotguns 20 gauge or larger, including muzzleloading shotguns. Only fine shot size No. 4 and smaller diameter may be used, and red dot scopes and range finders are legal. Visit the turkey hunting page  for more information about turkey hunting.

      We did some roadside scouting in the Chippewa national forest on Sunday. Put on a pile of miles driving the forest roads with the fresh dusting of snow and never cut a track. Kinda disappointing, but my daughter wasn't really up for it.    Season is still young.

      well we found a small amount of ice. But it was only about 1"thick. And only reached out a couple hundred yards at best. The swans were loving all the open water that's for sure.    Those that did come up to the GTG had a good time despite the lack of ice. Mostly hunting for grouse and rabbits. Plenty of both seen, but the shooting was less than stellar.
