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.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
