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.

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.

      I never got a chance to get down to Superior in the morning to fish from shore, as it was always a little too rough every day. I did get up early enough to make it to the devil track river, finally for the first time. Was nice to check it out, although my time was short. Caught 1 little rainbow, and lost 6!    Also checked out the Poplar River for the first time, off the caribou trail, at the campgrounds. Only fished it for a little bit, but caught 2 brook trout, one of which was about 12 inches. River was surprisingly deep, was wading in waste deep water.    My dad and my son are still up there. But they haven't really been able to fish due to the rain on Saturday and Sunday. If it was nice today, they were going to go back to Greenwood Lake. Otherwise, if the weather was bad, they were coming home a day early. Haven't heard from them yet, so hopefully they were able to get out.

      Yes just north of Cook.  They are open 7 days 8:00-4:30. Y-store is open 5am - midnight.

      Wind was howling when we left the dock this morning and I was pretty shook up about it. A nice steady bite with decent fish made the day a real pleasure.   Good news going into the big weekend, the fish are biting.

      Is it the LaCroix Ranger Station where you pick up the permits now?

      not something I consider when eating as I don't eat fish weekly.  I feed them to my kids and my wife ate it while pregnant.  Not sure if there really is a concern or not but the basic guidelines are out there more for kids and pregnant women.  Unless you are eating fish daily or every other day then I don't think you need to worry a whole bunch.  Heck if you die because of mercury poisoning from eating too many fish, well at least you had one hell of a time before you died! HAHAHA   A few years back a local lake close to the metro started producing a lot of crappies and people drove all over to fish.  A lot of fish were taken and eaten.  The lake had been traditionally known as a dumping pond for farm runoff and other things like that...I ate a limit or 2 from said lake and never had issues with anything and the fish tasted like they should.  Point being that unless they say "DON'T EAT FISH FROM THIS LAKE" just follow the state guidelines for your kids and prego wife but other than that enjoy a meal or 2 a week if you are lucky to catch enough!!  Good Luck- Ozzie

      I think day use motor or camping requires a permit, not self service. 
    • blue_healer_guy
      speaking of a terova with spot lock, where can I buy one, cant find anybody that has them and what do they cost.
    • portageguy
      Day trip canoe only can fill out and use permit at portage. October 1 - April 30 permits at portage cover all trips. We have all been driving to Cook for permits so Y-store would be great.

      Minnesota state parks have made it easy—and free —to experience the fun of fishing.  “We’ve eliminated some of the barriers that were keeping today’s busy families from getting out fishing,” said Erika Rivers, director of Minnesota state parks and trails. “Now, you and your family can try your hand at fishing – at no cost – before investing in equipment or purchasing a fishing license.” People are able to fish from shore without a license in most state parks on a lake or river that doesn’t require a trout stamp. Other rules and regulations still apply, such as the number and size of fish that the person can keep. Details, including a map showing where to find the free fishing opportunities, can be found online. Free fishing kits, which include a rod and tackle, are loaned out on a first-come, first-served basis at many state parks, thanks to funding from the DNR’s MinnAqua program. “These fishing kits make it easy for families,” said Jeff Ledermann, education and skills leader for DNR’s fish and wildlife outreach section. “The many fishing opportunities state parks offer are a great way for families to have fun, learn together and build a tradition that connects them to the outdoors.” Beginners and those who haven’t fished in awhile can brush up on their fishing skills at one of many I Can Fish! programs this summer. These hands-on learning opportunities ($5 for adults and free for children under age 12) cover fish identification, casting, knot-tying and more. Fishing gear is provided for use during the programs, and fishing licenses are not required. Experienced anglers will demonstrate skills and then give participants time to practice. Participants will also get a small tackle box to take home with them. For a complete schedule of I Can Fish! programs and information on how to register, visit www.mndnr.gov. For more information, contact the DNR Information Center at info.dnr@state.mn.us, 651-296-6157 or 888-646-6367 (8 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday).
