BOAT LANDING PARKING !!!!!

Question

gregg52

I was at a BOAT landing yesterday this paticluar one was on Leech

There should be signs posted NO SINGLE CARS !!!!

There was 2 single suvs parked in trailer spots

I had to park down the road and back up a 1/4 of mile to get back to the

landing to load (not a big deal for me as I drive truck) could be a problem

for some and a nuisance in the roadway of passing traffic

there was also a trailer just sitting in a spot this I dont have to much of problem with if some took the vehicle somewhere, but if for some reasopn they split that the need a kick in the a$$

Some will say I'm going with guide,then you park down the road outa the way

or meet the guide some where and ride with him these are pulbic landings not free parking for businesses

not to mention I had to walk and extra half mile,which is not a real big deal ,but still

So it didn't actually say 'no cars'? Then no foul in my opinion. Someone could park car to shore fish, or go for a walk, swim, whatever. And you know what- they got up earlier in the morning than you to get the spot ;-)

On the other hand. I was with my kids at the lake/park the other day. There ARE signs saying trucks/trailers only and separate area parking for vehicles only/no trailers. Some A-hole that couldn't fit in the trailer area took his trailer off and took up two 'vehicle' spots. So, we couldn't park and use the playground equipment. It takes all kinds of idiots that's for sure.

Yeah, it's frustrating when people park where they're not supposed to. But like Alagnak asked, does it say "No parking without trailer"? Or "Trailer parking only"?

Don't take this personally Gregg but I'm going to share my story:

I was left a nasty note on my truck at Burntside in Ely one day when I parked (without a trailer) on the lower level and jumped in a buddy's boat for the day. The signs in front of all the stalls clearly states "No overnight parking", nothing about without a trailer.

The note said "These spots are for not for car parking...." and some other comments... I just had to chuckle and go about my business. There are no car only spots at Van Vac access and the rule is if you're overnight parking, you stay on the upper level.

Whether you're pulling a trailer or not, it's still the same walk for a person from the outskirts parking to the ramp. Why should you get a break if you show up later because you're pulling a boat? First come, first served is the rule for public parking. When you show up early to jump into someone elses boat, you take what's legally available. A person has no idea how many people will be trailering in for the day and it's not their responsibility to be a parking monitor.

Read the signs.

Peace out. grin

Fyi...if u do not not have a trailer and another vehicle does' t either, please park in the same stall as not to waste 2 spots. Saw 3 vehicles waste 3 spots at farm lake access and pretty sure they were staying at the cabin down the road...

Yep if there is no sign then the courteous thing to do is pull all the way to the front of the spot so someone can park behind you and double park whenever you can.

I could be wrong but I thought it was illegal to park a vehicle without a trailer at any "long" stall at a boat ramp?

I had to chuckle to myself (again) when I saw these new additions at Van Vac last weekend.

I should've parked on the upper level though since I pulled my boat with a truck. wink

Bottom line here fella's is this: 2 things which seem to unfortunatly getting in shorter and shorter quantities in society today. 1)Good old common sense 2) Common respect for your fellow man. If a person uses one or the other or in the best case scenario both at the same time, issues like this and many other petty issues would be less abundant. It goes for just about anything! We shouldn't need a sign or a list of rules or somebody standing there telling us what to do or where to do it in order to do the right thing out of respect for everyone else........carry on!

      I had an absolutely beautiful day on the water. The crappies I caught were over 12" . I personally have to say pink and white, and white on pink is the way to go for spring crappies. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/o19q4K1urBE

      Where the heck was this advice a month ago when I was booking our trip!  I knew nothing about Kabotegama and really only had a few choices of campsites available for the dates we wanted to go. Wood Duck Island looked as good as any. After I made the reservation I had read that the west end of the lake had better fishing earlier in the year since it was shallower than the east and the water warmed up quicker. Goes to show you can't trust everything you read on the internet. Even though we got skunked on walleye it was still one of our favorite trips. My buddy and I typically stay at a resort or one of our family's cabins. Camping got us outside doing stuff a lot more. If we had a roof over our head and a TV we would have spent a lot less time fishing when the weather stunk.

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.
