Moderation, Shorlander is all I know from experience and really like this trailer. I trailer a lot and it loads and unloads with ease. What size boat are you talking here?

Looking at an 18' Lund Fisherman. I've had Holsclaw, Northwood, Built Rite, and anothers, never had much trouble but I just don't know what trailer is the best now.

I'd go for a shoreland'r as well...

They stand up better over the years, and don't start squeaking like a ez loader... plus, IMHO, they load the best when set up properly as compared to any other roller trailer...

I've owned a few Shorelander roller trailers and they've been great. Wouldn't hesitate to but another.

I have here a Tabban trailer, which is made by Tabban Trailers a mfg of many types of trailers, and I have to admit I am very impressed the way it's built. Very good quality trailer.

I always liked Shorelandr but I changed my mind after this, if you do a search check their web site, or find a dealer to inspect one.

Certain manufacturers are now coming out with trailers that are coated with products like Rhino-liner or Herculiner. Defineately worth checking into if you're buying a trailer. I'm not sure which ones it is, but those products would be great to have on the trailer frame. They all seemed to get dinged up by rocks and get rusty in just 3-4 years. I might even try doing a Herculiner coating on my trailer frame soon, it worked great on my truck bed.

Shorelander is all I have ever owned and would not choose any other brand- zero problems for many years running...

I've had two Shoreland'r trailers and they've been great. The only problem I've had is the trailer bottoming out on my current setup when I used some questionable ramps. Other than that I haven't had any problems. I didn't even have to add or change the bearing grease on the previous trailer and that was inspected yearly.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?

      Drove through Annandale last Tuesday and was really bummed to still only see the old cement slab at Little Jim's. Hope they can get it built-back-better! 🙂

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick
