Chunkytrout's new boat (pics included)

Recommended Posts

Steve Foss

Well, we've all waited a long time to see pics of Chunky's new laker taker, so here she is. I shot these off the Van Vac dock Sunday as Mr. Trout pirhouetted and spun the queen around like a dancer. Well, OK, a really big, heavy dancer. grin.gif

I'll let him fill you all in on the specifics of said boat. grin.gif

Healed over is right. In 1956 deep V hull wasn't part of our vocabulary. She spent her first 20 years on La Croix as a freighter. Mostly hauling propane and ice. There's a guy in Ely who actually worked out of her up there when he was "much younger". He said she had a Merc the size of a Maytag on the back of her way back then. From there it's a mystery where she's been. I've had people tell Vermilion and other people tell me Basswood.

Well she'll has some more stories to tell when you get done with her. I'm sure she'll still be freighting ice and plenty of methane gas too.

Thanks man. It's a 56 Alumacraft Queen Merrie. Pride of the fleet when it was built. That lake is Burntside.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Hey Kelly can I fish of your dock opener
    • jkrash
      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
