Boat Trailer Work

10 posts in this topic

Calling Mr. Axel (or anyone) - I am going to be up in the area again for a week this year. I would like to get the boat trailer sandblasted/painted while I am there since my trailer just sits in the parking lot all week. I was just wondering if anyone in the area does this kind of work? THX

Be careful on how you promote a business, part-time or not, without being a sponsor. Thank you.

The trailer is for a 17' Basstracker. Not sure how to measure the trailer for size.

MT - I will email you.

TO - Sorry, did I put something wrong on here?

JD, you're fine but thanks for asking. Mountaindew was walking a thin line on some of the information in his original post, so I edited.

I hope you guys are able to connect.

MT - You have mail.

TO - Thanks, I did not notice the edit until after I posted.

I am going to be up there chasing walleyes on Tetonka from May 16-23rd. Hit the lake for the first time last year and after about a day had a good pattern going. Hopefully, I can get on another good bite this year. If anyone is in area during this week and would like to hookup just let me know. When my wife does not go out in the boat with me I usually have room for one.

TO, Whoops! blush.gif Sorry. I didn't read all the fine print on the rules. Sorry. I didn't realized that. Won't happen again. I haven't check the forums till this morning.

JD, you'll have to keep me posted on what's happening. I'll be guiding down here May 18 - 20, so perhaps we can bounce some ideas off one another because you'll be a few days up on me. My cell # is 612-756-2184.

Mountaindew, no sweat. Thanks for understanding.

TO - Have your number written down and put in boat. I'll try to give you a ring Thur.night 17th or early Fri. 18th. When is too late/early to call? It would be fun to kick around what is working and what is not. I'm hoping same pattern will work this year as last however we all know it is never that easy.

Couple questions for you? How are the water levels up there so far? Has it ever been a problem getting between Tetonka and Sakatah?

How far a drive to Reel Fishing and Tackle from Waterville? I would like to visit the store with my wife and daughter one of the days we are up there. I can always use some new tackle (who can't) and sometimes find lures you don't see in other places. Also, would like to meet a few of the people there.

Thanks and really looking forward to the trip.

Sounds good. You can call up to 10:00 pm and as early as 5:00 am. I'll be fresh off a trip to Mille Lacs so we'll definitely be banging ideas off one another.

The water levels are decent right now but there's plenty of room for improvement. Personally, I've never had an issue going between lakes but anything more than an 18' boat could be a little challenging in a few places.

To Reel Fishing and Tackle from Waterville, you're looking at 15 minutes tops. Tell Joe, Matt or Katy I sent ya'.

Talk to you soon.

      X2 for the big minnow net.  I got mine at Wally world or FF for $5.  Bend the wire frame to fit.

      You posted this on Friday so I don't know if by "next Saturday" you meant the 14th or this coming Saturday the 21st.    Osakis might be worth a look. Perhaps the Alex chain (Victoria, Geneva, LeHomme Dieu, Carlos, Darling.

      I agree. Completely careless! My uncle could have died...  It broke though he said the ice was to the hood of the truck. He crawled out the window... The window was level to the ice.... He stood up turned around and he said "All I could see was the cab. I watched it for about ten seconds and then it sank." He is extremely lucky to be alive. He still likes ice fishing but he walks on now.

      Fished 2 1/2 weeks solid for NP, and panfish.  Found lots of bites on larger suckers, but almost all were dropped.  Gold and silver shiners were preferred by all sizes.  Usually get the bigger ones on 4-8 suckers.

      I can't tell if it has a second dorsal fin or not based on those pictures, it could be laid down onto the back. But from the looks of it to me, I think its a Brook Silverside. We sample these in central MN streams and the Mississippi River. If you were in Wright County, definitely within its known range. Just a thought based on the picture
