  1. Hello all, I am looking for some help with an older boat I have. I would like to get my 1984 Rinker back up and running. It was not winterized last year, and it unfortunately felt the full affects. It basically needs a new (used) motor or at least a few new parts. It currently has a 140 hp Mercruiser inboard in it. I would also like to have a new floor and carpet put in. I am looking for suggestions on where I could take it for each of these projects. I would prefer a place as close to Mankato as possible, but understand I will probably need to travel a bit. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks guys!
  2. Renting a Pontoon

    Does anyone know where I can rent a pontoon in Southern Minnesota?
  3. NS - For some reason I can't send a PM...I would love to talk to you about any spots you may know of (or even 1) The only spots I know of are the ones EVERYONE else knows as well! Send me an email or PM anytime -
  4. No luck last night..was only out there for a few hours though. I am anxious to get something on the rod that is bigger than a crappie though!
  5. I have a night off and no fishing partner...thinking about throwing a line in for a few hours and seeing if a flathead will bite. ( I know it is early ). Let me know if anyone is interested. I have one spot in mind, but it may be pretty early, so I am open to going anywhere.
  6. Hey guys, I am heading that way from Minneapolis, and hoping to get some ice fishing in. Anyone out there have any ice reports for this area on the local lakes? I am going to be staying blocks from Random Lake, so that is the first one that popped into my head. Is it worth haulin my gear down there, or is it to early yet? We have at least 11 inches on most of the smaller lakes around here, but I think we have had colder temperatures as well. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
