I bought a 79' lund last year which has the rounded aluminum front and have seen people take these out to put a flat piece of plywood up there to mount a front trolling motor. Does anyone know who i could contact to do this kind of work. Ive heard of a guy in St. Peter if anyone knows his name. Thanks

Wait a few days & I will post a picture. This past weekend I worked on a bracket for my 14' lund to mount my transom trolling motor up front, It turned out nice and was a piece of cake to make, (If you know someone with a wire feed welder).

Pretty simple even without a welder. Take some lumber, 2X2 or 2X4, and bolt in to the boat horizontal with a couple of bolts, cutting a piece of 3/4 plywood to fit into the boats front and screwing the plywood to the lumber with screws. On mine, I needed to use two pieces of plywood to get that 1.5" to get the trolling motor over of edge of the gunnel. This was for a bow mount on a 14 ft lund....the concept is pretty universal and very easy though.

I dont have photos, but your more than welcome to swing by my house sometime and take a look-Cougar Estates, Mankato.

Is this Allan A?

Redrocket, here's some pictures of the bracket I made. I wanted a bow mount troller without the loss of space a bow mount creates. As you can see, I don't have a lot of room up there anyway.

In the last picture you can barly see the plug in in the front of the seat. I think It will wrok pretty well.

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.

      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.

      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
