    I'm on the ODNR website for Alum Creek - It says they offer boat rentals...

    Where would I go to get a boat to rent for the day? Anyone know the rate?

    Also thinking about doing a day at Trapper Johns... Anyone know if they frown upon bring fishing gear onboard during the trip back to the main lodge to where your car is?

    Thanks - PERCHY

    Man - Thanks...

    I found the number and called the marina and the prices they quoted me aren't anything like that....

    Just curious - were the prices much higher (likely) or lower?

    If I remember correctly - They were about 40$ higher....
  5. I personally don't like trapper john's. The owner was going to double charge us for a canoe because we needed it for a little longer than his rates covered, and we were $1 short of his "double charge fee" and he wouldn't let us use it...pretty poor business if you ask me.

    So we just got my buddies pelican and took it through there for free, much more comfortable fishing out of that anyway.

    Have Fun!

    Oh, don't tell me if we take longer then the "2-4" hours that we are going to get changed extra.....
  7. If you use it longer than his rates apply, then yes you will probably get double charged. Maybe if you don't tell him you need it longer he won't notice when he picks you up down the line, but bring extra money incase.

    That's the owner, if someone else is running it that day then you might be in luck.

    We plan on taking the upper route.. and floating back down to the center point... So who knows...

    Unless its pointed out somewhere on signs or I sign something to that effect... saying i'll pay money if I take longer then X amount - I won't pay the extra cash.. I'll tell you that.
