Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon.
Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!
Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.
I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price. If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down. Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
New Ice shelter coming this fall from Otter and Polaris specifically made for full size Rangers. This will be available through Polaris Dealers.
Sure I do Dave.
You take a lot of nasty old rotted left over wood from torn down houses or where ever else they scrape it up from? Sweep it up off the floor and turn it into little compressed pellets usually for heating stoves, then Dave makes his food with it! 😜
Because that's the technical term. I can't help it if you don't know what a pellet grill is or what it can do. I'm more than happy to educate you though.....
BTW, those St. Louis spare ribs were a 5-1/2 hour smoke.
