Boat Rentals


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of some lakes in the metro area where you can rent small motorboats for an afternoon of fishing? I have a buddy who's future father-in-law is coming up in a few weeks and they wanted to do some fishing. They posed this question to me and I was unsure so I thought some of you would be helpful. They aren't looking for anything spectacular, just a small boat and motor to get around an area lake and wet a line.

Thanks for your help!

Check out Harty's on Medicine Lake. Joe is a very nice guy who really works hard at catering to the angler. He has a baitshop and boat rental station available at the lake. And Medicine Lake can be an excellent fishing lake. A good choice if you're targeting bass, pike or panfish...

Good Fishin,

I thinks Howards point marina on Tonka rents boats, if my memory is wrong on the name somebody will correct me.

There are a couple of rentals on 'Tonka... not sure if the names though either. I know one of the locations is in Mound. Not sure if that's the same place that buzzsaw is referring to....?

Gander Mtn in Lakeville rents boats out. I think you can take them to any lake (not 100% on that). The prices looked kinda spendy though.

I think there's also a place on White Bear Lake that rents boats. Not 100% sure on that though.

There is a place on Bald Eagle (near WBL) that rents boats as well... I just don't know the name of it.

The place on White Bear is called Talleys @ 651-426-9909, and the place on Bald Eagle is called Bald Eagle rental @ 651-426-0365. (Used to be called Bobbers) There's only the one place on each lake.

Cupper,

Check out In Town Marina in Waconia. I'm pretty sure they still rent boats and pontoons. (952) 442-2096

      Was out the last 2 days. Saw some Crappies caught in warmer bays. Not much action outside the mouths of bays today. Hoping it picks up this week. Trying to learn this lake over the summer.

      The creek is still very high and dirty. Prespawn smallies don't seem to mind😁 Morning bite has been very consistent this last week.

      Any new reports from this past weekend?  Heading up Thursday for a long Memorial Day weekend. Looking for a place to start. Going out of Bayview RV resort. First year fishing vermilion.

      Looks like your neighbors old pontoon is in some trouble, only a couple inches of the motor is above the water.

      Nice fish, but sad for the property owners.

      On the south end...  A great week of walleye fishing with good numbers of fish and some big walleyes and pike caught as well. Most anglers are finding walleyes vertical jigging.  A jig and emerald shiner or fathead did the trick.  With the naturally "stained" waters of LOW, gold, glow, pink, orange, chartreuse or a combo of these colors works well. Some anglers catching good numbers of walleyes trolling crankbaits over shallow sand, 5 - 12' of water.  Regardless of what technique, a lot of good fish on shallow sand this week. Walleyes are being caught in 3 - 31 feet of water.  Some walleyes are still spawning while others are well past that point.  Different things are happening depending upon what part of the lake, bay or river you are fishing.  A mixed bag for walleye anglers including walleyes, sauger, pike, perch, and sturgeon.   On the Rainy River...   The river has a lot of current with the dam wide open and high water levels.    Typical spots in the main channel are still tough to fish due to high current.  Finding current breaks adjacent to shorelines or the mouth of bays has been productive for those fishing the river.  Once you find fish, there are normally good numbers. Sturgeon fishing is closed until July 1st.  July 1 - Sep 30 is a sturgeon keep season with one fish per calendar year 45" - 50" or over 75". Up at the NW Angle...  A great jig continues.  Fish are being found in various depths from 5' -  30'.  Shoreline structure, neckdown areas and on some shallow flats are producing fish. Again, a jig and minnow was by far the most common method vertically jigged below the boat.  Trolling crankbaits over 5' - 12' over shallow flats or sand has been productive. Various ways to travel to the Angle. 1.  Drive through Canada to the Angle  (must be vaccinated, no covid test required) 2.  LOW Passenger Service (charter boat service across the lake avoiding customs)  3.  Lake Country Air.(fly from various Midwest locations to LOW and NW Angle) 4.  Take your own boat.  (Safety first, this is a 40 mile ride over big water)

      We will be up for our yearly trip June 4-11.  Just seeing if it's the usual baits so far fishing.  Anyone bobber fishing?  Lindy rig?  I'm assuming the water is told cold at this point for Leeches. Thank fellas.

      I spent last week on Kabetogama and the conditions are hard to believe. Water keeps rising. The forecast was for another foot rise. We stay at Northern Lights Resort and they went over and above for the guests. Built bridges to the floating docks! Fishing was amazing! Hard to catch small enough fish to keep! People up there are battling to protect and save what they can.

      I'm not getting any good reports on the lake conditions there. Friends on Ash River have water in their cabin. Hope all losses are at a minimum.🙏
