Buying a cabin on Pine Island. What would you consider the best marina for storing my boat during the season when I'm not at the cabin? Any other thoughts or comments also appreciated.

Depends on which part of Pine your cabin is on... it's a BIG island! I keep by boat at Shamrock Marina. I love the people there and it's quieter than Moc Point. The owner, Randy, and his family give first class service. If your cabin is on the far east end, Glenwood resort is closer (but the car ride is longer if you're coming from the south).

One thing to consider about Glenwood is their lack of dock space. We just returned from there a few weeks ago and had a few occasions where we returned from fishing and had no dock space for our boat. With the bar traffic (especially on weekends), the folks that use the docks/ramp from the islands and the resort guests, it can get a bit tight. Good people and adequate ramp, but maybe already a bit over utilized.

You may want to contact Gruben's Marina. They have a few covered slips and a ton of dock space.

I second PortageBay. You get Great Service at Shamrock. A phone call on your way up and they will have your boat out of the building (by forklift) and in the water and full of gas. You can load your boat right from your car. Its nice not having to haul your stuff down to the dock and then out to your slip. Shamrock gets my reccomendation everytime I am asked.

Shamrock gets my nod also! smile.gif

Good docking space, gas, and as safe as it can get on the lake.

I don't have any experience with Shamrock, Glenwood, or Gruben's; however, I would not recommend the (for now un-named) marina along Pike Bay drive. Probably too far away from your island anyway, but I just wanted to mention that I experienced some really poor service there when I stored my boat there for a season.

      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
