Happy Labor Day..Celebrate by not Laboring!

Just Chill’n and Grill’N

President Abraham Lincoln once said that “Labor is the superior of capitol” and boy did he get that right. As all the hardworking folks who dock at Romp’s can attest, this weekend is well deserved time off from the daily grind and, more importantly, time to relax and have some fun.

Labor Day also brings with it a change in seasons at our home-port. This may be the last weekend of the season for the pool as it closes for the year sometime in the following week. So we hope you get out and make a splash!

Finally, we also have to add that Putter-Port will be open from 11am to 10pm Sat-Sun-Mon this weekend, then will close for the season as well. So now is the time to get the crew onto the back 9.

Something’s Fishy in Vermilion…

We’re already hooked on the idea of a great walleye season..

With the temps finally headed in the right direction and with every passing day we cannot think about anything but the one that got away (AND the one’s that didn’t). It’s time to talk fishing.

Reel good news….

Last year’s boating season allowed us to see some of the largest Walleye catches in a decade. The thing that was even more exciting to anglers is the amount of Walleye caught that were just too young to keep and had to be tossed back. Meaning, this season could shape up to be one for the record books as those fish mature.

Tarter Sauce sales expected to rise…

Even though it is only February, you can already feel the anticipation when our fisherman stop in to renew their docks. It is like they kept track of the number of toss-backs in those hot-spots and are chomping at the bit to get back out there.

Now these pics are what we call the greatest hits of 2017 (that we had a chance to view).

Yet most every weekend at our gas docks you can see that the theme here is one of excitement for anglers in the coming season. So grab your favorite tackle box and pole and mark those calendars, Spring is just around the corner.

Believe us, it’s not just “Fishfull Thinking”… Time to get hooked!
