Lake Superior / Re: Anybody know if Altrain Dock is open
« on: March 06, 2017, 08:10:04 PM »
With this warm weather we've had I was able to get into the parking lot today.  It looks like it'll still be quite sometime before anyone is launching though.

I drove past it on Friday.  It is not in and does't look like the shoreline will allow it for quite some time.  Can't get into the parking lot and the shoreline has lots of ice and snow.


Finn Tackle Company is proud to be a sponsor of the Great Lakes Angler Super Salmon Schools.  Captain Dan Keating will be bringing his seminar to Munising, MI.  I will be there with a display of Finn Spoons ready for purchase, including all of our new spoons for 2017.  Capt. Dan's seminars are geared towards Lake Michigan tactics but will certainly help in Lake Superior, too!  Register today because Dan's seminars often sell out.  Dan & I look forward to seeing you there.  All of the detailed information is listed below.

Lake Superior / Marquette Boaters & Fisherman
« on: February 26, 2017, 02:18:31 PM »
I thought that all Marquette boaters and fisherman should be aware, if you're not already!  Whether you're a power boater, sail boater and/or a fisherman, this will or does already effect you.  For those of you in the Cinder Pond Marina that think all the headaches and struggles we're going through up at Presque Isle Marina has nothing to do with you, this has to do with you too!  We (both PI Marina and CP Marina boaters) will all be hit with yet more price increases and reduced services.  Even though we've seen a 6% increase annually for the past 6 years, that still apparently is not enough.  In 2018, both PI and CP Marinas will see a 15% increase and a 5% increase, annually, until 2024...when it will be voted on again.  We already pay the highest rates on Lake Superior!  And for those who launch in Marquette look at what they did to the Presque Isle boat launch before anybody knew what they were doing...what a shame.  So, anyone with an interest in boating/fishing in Marquette please come show support at Monday nights meeting.  It's sad to say but the consistent theme seems to be downsize boating in Marquette!  As someone who's lived, boated and fished their whole life in Marquette, it's so sad and disappointing!

For those who haven't seen it yet, their is more info available in today's front page story in The Mining Journal.

I also thought I'd share an email I received on Friday with some more details...

On Monday, Feb. 27, at 6:00, at City Hall, in Commission chambers, the Commission is set to finalize plans for the downsizing of the Presque Isle Marina. (Recreation Master Plan Update –Marina Plan) Plan calls for even greater reduction of services and the loss of over 40% of marina slip capacity, which means that about two dozen small slip renters are scheduled to lose their slips. Several people are planning to speak at this meeting, and they are deserving of our support.

I have 133 of these stackable containers in a variety of colors and 3 different size.  These sell for  $5-$7 a piece new...asking $2.00 a piece.  Picked up in Marquette.  Respond here or send a PM.

Great for organizing your shop... :thmb:

Lake Michigan / Re: Manistique July 18th thru 20th
« on: July 17, 2016, 11:06:27 PM »

Here's the number for the marina in Manistique (just stayed there Friday night)...just call before you leave or on your way up and make your reservation.  It is across the river from the boat launch, so having the slip reserved and slip number a head of time might save you some time and energy.  Good luck and welcome to the U.P.!
