Docks

Question

Guest

I have had both. Roll-a-Dock is almost a one person job (24 ft with L). That is what we currently have -- however, if you fish from your dock, don't get aluminum deck. It is impossible to sneak out to the end of the dock without making too much noise. On the other hand, they are no maintenance.

I have sorry memories of the old wooden beasts in 8 foot sections. This meant driving posts and setting set screws. Much too much work for a guy my age.

Good Day all- Am looking to buy a dock for our lake property. Have heard plusses and minus for the roll-in type vs. non roll-in. Any suggestions on this and anyone out there know of any place that sells used docks as well.

I agree with Clayton! In the resort business I had the pleasure of putting in and taking out docks that required assembly as well as the roll-in type. With the roll-in dock, you have gravity on your side to put it in and you can use a vehicle to pull it out. They are also MUCH easier to adjust when the lake leves rises and falls. You will happy that you spent the extra cash for a roll-in.

Glen, There is a place that sells some nice looking docks at Waterville Mn. He is located on highway 60. I know 3 people that have bought these docks so far and are very happy with them. They have wheels and you just roll them out. I'm lucky my husband built ours himself saved us hundreds of $$$.
We have a seasonal camper in that area and in the spring and fall they all get together and put the docks in and take them out in the fall. It only takes them a couple hours to put in and take out a lot of docks that way and then we have a pot luck afterwards.

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!

      For those looking for some decent perch they seem to be hanging in the reeds chasing crawfish and minnows.   Some real dandies in there if you're in the right patch of reeds.  Not many out on the flats yet.

      Been a tough bite the last couple days for me. Catching a few here and there but no consistency. Caught fish on crawlers leechesand jigging raps but for the amount of fish I’m graphing not near enough catching All my bigger fish have came on the jigging raps. How is everyone else doing?

      Tried my luck on Lory lake for some pan fish. trying to catch a meal. didn’t find any sunfish over 7” and a few 9” crappies. Not what I was expecting hoping for a little better. Might have to try a littler bigger lake for some better results.

      @cherokee muskie-mike is spot on the dog food... When I use to camp at hoodoo point campgrounds I tend to use nightcrawlers if I have any to spare (in a minnow trap). Caught too many rusties while fishing.
