Way before the Eastern Basin was "discovered" to be a walleye hotspot!(say back in the 70's when everyone went West), we started putting in at Mrs. Rutherford's! She was a wonderful person and gave us an honest, current fishing report each time. I assume the place is in different hands by now!
I talked with Mary every time I launched. She was giving me free launch because of helping her out, taking care of her, fixing some things, and printing her launch fee envelopes for her at no cost. About 2 years or so, ago she was transferred to an assisted living place. Her relatives did not want to run the ramp. So they were going to sell the property. Could be the new owners tearing everything out. Or the estate finally settled and they are clearing it out to get a better price.
