it's not cheap, but have you thought about wrapping the perimeter with composite fascia board?

You may want to look up dock rules and sizes that the DNR enforces.
I had to remove a 8X8 platform because DNR rules did state 6 ft width is the max.It can be 100ft long as long as no section excedes 6ft width.
Look up docks on the DNR site


weird, the regs specifically say up to 8' wide is ok

Issues Related to Docks
Docks are commonly used access structures on Minnesota lakes and rivers. No permit is needed to install, construct, or reconstruct a dock on shoreline property if the property owner complies with certain restrictions PDF icon..

Design and locate your dock and boat lift to avoid interfering with your neighbor's use of the water. Docks and boat lifts should be placed so that mooring and maneuvering of watercraft can normally be confined within the property lines as if they were extended into the water.

The DNR has regulated docks and other structures in public waters for several decades. In recent years, the DNR has witnessed an increased number of "dock platforms," which are structures over public waters that exceed longstanding statewide rules that limit docks to a maximum of eight feet in width. Following several months of information dissemination and the gathering of public input, a General Permit was issued by the DNR in January 2008 which authorizes, under certain conditions, the installation of a single, temporary platform at the lake end of a dock.

I'm picking up a Floe 4' x 24' long with a 8 x 8 "patio" on the end, 6' shore ramp, can't wait so sick of beaching my boat

Fished Devil's for my first time last week with 5 other guys. Tuesday the perch were very finicky, had to be very slow on your presentation, managed to get our limits by 4pm.
Wednesday they started off finicky but then went into a feeding frenzy later in the day, as fast as I could re-bait and drop down to 33' it was fish on, constantly 2-3 on the Vex. Had a big fish fry that night. Thursday went after walleye at first light and got 15 in 11', then went back to perchin', finished out our 2 day perch limits by 2pm.
Four guys went back out after walleye from 4-6pm and ended up with another 16.

I'll definitely be going back, incredible fishery.

Definitely wasn't the best welcome for the first trip to Devils Lake. Fishing was bad, as best. No change from the reports I heard from the week, lots of lookers, very few takers. Did get to see a couple of the Jumbo Perch I had always seen in pics, and a couple of big Crappies, but not the best fishing trip I have ever taken. That being said, "that's why they call it fishing, and not catching". At some point soon, those fish will have to start eating, every fish I cleaned had empty bellies, so someone will score big. Nice fishery, poor welcoming.


Did you go out on your own or out of a resort/guide?
I'm headed up with a group next Monday thru Friday, fingers crossed fishing heats up

Snow,

quite sure our boats are different in model and vintage but can you give me a ballpark what Lund charged you? An '04 is long out of warranty.
I do like the idea of them looking it over as I'd also like to upgrade my stinky gas tank....the whole hull and compartments always have a faint smell of gasoline...especially in the summer when it warms up.


I have the same gas stink in my '04 Fisherman, a buddy of mine bought a '04 Mr. Pike the same time as me which had the same problem, he took up his floor and found that they only put ( 1 ) hose clamp on the hose, he added another clamp and was fine after that, for what its worth.

Those lakes are closer to Duluth. Springhole is a very small one off County 4. If it's the same one I'm thinking of it's so small that you could just about cast from one side to the other. Briar I have fished many times but not in the last few years. But I still think the lakes I mentioned would be a better choice. The closer those trout lakes are to a city the more they get hammered. They all get stocked and are put and take. The lakes I mentioned have splake as well. good luck.


I emailed the DNR earlier this year regarding Spring Hole since I didn't see any recent stocking or surveys, they stopped stocking it several years ago due to it being infested with Northern and since it is connected to a trout stream.

Final update from St. Louis County 8-3-16

Weather dependent, paving should be complete on Monday, August 8. There will still be delays through next week as shouldering and the chip seal are taking place.

Update as of 7-31-16

The entire section has at least a layer of blacktop now, some areas are low yet that need another layer so where they have a sign posted BUMP, there's definitely a bump, also shoulders need to be built up. So nice and smooth now.
If traveling during 8-5pm (maybe later) be prepared for delays 15-20 minutes
