Maintenance On Public Access Channel Markers

Recommended Posts

Squid

Having returned recently from another trip to Mille Lacs I can't help but notice that the channel markers at the Sha-Bosh-Kung Public Access have fallen into a state of disrepair. I fish a lot after dark and in the past having the lighted channel markers has been helpful since the channel is quite shallow. Being able to line the markers up is useful in keeping the boat in the middle of the channel. This year, however, the lights on both markers are out and with this last trip the red marker has disappeared. Who is responsible for the maintenance of these markers? I'm thinking either Mille Lacs County or the DNR but does anyone know for sure?

How do you like that comment about being happy you have anythng at all. The resorts and marina's that have their own ramps don't care about public access. They would rather you pay to use their's. I probably shouldn't get started on this one.............

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
