“Water” your plans this weekend?

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.

Shhhh…..Finally revealed, our secret recipe for a great weekend!

Just add water, sprinkle in some sunshine and mix until well done…

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.

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.

In the meantime, our staff here at Romp’s Lake Erie Marina has sent us some pictures taken this week to make sure you don’t get left dockside.

Celebrate with a bang…

And although Vermilion has already had its fireworks season during the Fish Festival, there will be more from nearby Huron or Cedar Point for you to view if traveling on the water this weekend. All we need is some favorable lake conditions. On another quick note, Vermilion Road has re-opened for travel to and from your family fun marina, and just in time for the busy holiday.

Orange Barrel season hits close to your homeport….

We wanted all of our Captains and Crew to be aware that Vermilion Road (Right next to Dairy Dock) is closed at the Railroad Tracks for road repair and resurfacing. This will effect all inbound folks who use this path from Route 90/2.

Instead we want you to know you can still come by Baumhart Rd, Sunnyside Rd, and Route 60 north to Liberty Ave.

Splish to the Splash of it….

That said, we are back in action here at your homeport as the season’s fishing has seen some great catches. Like this pic sent in from Lynn, talk about your smoked Walleye.
