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.

      Sounds like putting the gear away wasn't a bad idea. Didn't relize the ice has deteriorated that much. Guess I've been to caught up in thinking about summer. Sounding like maybe get the boat out next weekend hard to say yet would like to get it on the water first as possibly taking it to lake superior in a few weeks. Thanks all for the reports keep em coming. Ooh forgot drove past crow wing lake yesterday and the north side was melted a ways from shore and away from the reeds. Just in a few hours the ice turned from white-black to dark black. With the temps forcasted it shouldn't take long now.

        You got to stop by! One of the best fisheries as far as multi spices lakes in MN. The fish that come out of big V can be monsters. With that being said the scenery all over the lake is like none other. It's truly one of the most scenic lakes I've ever fished really makes you sit back and really enjoy what nature has to offer.

      I'm hanging it up for the season as well. Yesterday we hit 371 bay of North Long. The walk in was a bit spooky. The ice is very rotten. It takes about 8 toe kicks to make a hole hole through the ice.    With that being said, the 371 bay is the first of the area lakes to freeze and first to melt. So, I think it's reasonable to say that a guy can still get out on larger lakes, like Round, Gull, or Pelican. That's just my two cents.    It was a great year with many memoirs made. Good luck to those that still make it out, and again, be safe!

      My goal is to fish Vermilion again someday.   I keep driving past it.
