Sailboats and Cruisers Beware...

1 post in this topic

Just wanted to let you sailboaters and cruisers know that on Saturday and Sunday one of each type got hung up on the rocks out front of Izaty's. The channel depth is at least 3.5 feet but the sailboat rudders must be deeper or it was driver error. Also, the cruiser apparently didn't take the advice of the marina manager during the gale force winds Saturday night and proceeded to head out into the narrow channel and the wind grabbed the boat and racked it up on shore. Lots of damage, wet people and tarnished egos. Kind of sad but it was weird that not one of the 200 fishing boats in the two-day MTT tourney at the resort had any issues getting in and out of the harbor. With low water levels, this ain't Lake Minnetonka these days...

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.

      I would be cautious about removing seats and decks as they are usually part of the integral strength of the boat . If you remove anything make sure you add brackets or such to help keep the boat strength intact . For example bench seats that run the entire width of the boat are attached to the floor and both sides and help to strengthen the boat, if they are removed the sides of the boat are weakened, your modification should include a way to compensate .

      The waves have been bigger than i've ever seen the past 3-4 days on Ottertail.  Don't know how that is affecting the walleye bite... but its a mess out here.
