Feeling tired?… Go see the dock!

Water you waiting for?

We have had another sunny August week as temps have hovered right in the 80’s, which means anglers have made some more progress getting those freezers stocked full of some choice Walleye. Next up, we are hoping that a record Walleye haul will be followed with a great perch season, the only problem is there enough tarter sauce?

When the catch of the day is done, just relax at the dock…

The forecast for the weekend does call for some spotty showers, so bring along the rain slicker just in case. For the most part we have been very fortunate as the later part of the summer has left us with some dazzling evening light shows, with towering effects.

Flip Flop to the dock…

One of our favorite things is seeing long time docker Bob and his dockside blender go to work, just another way to beat the heat and spend some time with friends at your homeport.

First up…Environmental Studies.

Of course we know that the “Back to School’ season will soon be upon us, but long before that happens the kids can get quite an education just by getting some fresh air and interacting with nature. How about aquatic studies say in a nice refreshing lake?

Our uniform policy means causal dress and no shoes required…

Everyone will be stuck indoors soon enough, so why not get outside and load up on the sunshine while it lasts. Now is the time to make some lasting memories with family and friends.

When less is more….

So the forecast is out and it looks like another winner as 2 feet or less is the norm this weekend. Along with that friendly lake we should also be able to enjoy some cooler temps dockside for any cookout or just hang out with friends that you may have planned.

Operation Open Heart and Romp’s a decades long tradition…

We also had a chance to catch up with our friends from Operation Open Heart as they visited Putter-Port this week, as you can see it was a very active day with some fierce competition on the links. Best of all was the very high “Smiles per hour” rating we received. Thanking everyone who contributes to this great day.

Wake up your weekend!

Sea what we mean?

The sun has been out for quite a while now and the temps have been very favorable here at your home-port. To add to that, Anglers have seen one of the best Walleye seasons we have ever had, but that’s just the beginning.

There’s a whole lot of summer fun left….

Being out on the lake whether swimming of fishing, tubing or skiing, is only part of the equation. There’s a whole bunch of dockside fun to be had as well. For instance, you can hit the links…

Or make a splash…

Of course, if that’s not your speed you can just relax in the blue waters of “R” pool while enjoying you favorite beverage.

Plus there’s Third Thursday downtown Vermilion tonight with bands and other live entertainment sprinkled throughout the downtown for your enjoyment. Best of all it’s free! Either way, we hope to see you dockside at Romp’s Lake Erie Marina!
