GillPill20,

Please don't bash CPT Tom on a forum like this. If you have ever talked with him at all, you would know that he is a great business man who BRINGS alot of money into the local economy and more than that, he is a great fisherman who will show anyone how to catch fish from the mighty Mississippi. He is very genuine and truely cares about his customers and the river. Next time you see CPT Tom with his big ol pontoon parked at the dock, go up to him and tell him that it is BS that he gets to park his pontoon there. I think he would be happy to explain the business model to you. But I guess it is alot easier to complain on a forum than it is to actually talk to a real human being in person.

I love it when pissy people stick their foot in their mouth. Thanks Captain Tom for your extras.

@gillpill20, The DNR allows captain Tom to park his boat there because he is the one who moves the docks when the water level changes, pulls them out of the water when the ice comes, puts the docks back in when the ice is out and has even spent $4,000 on an extra piece of docking so boaters like us don't have to get our feet wet while coming and going from these docks during high water times like these. It is captain Tom who keeps the landing in the great shape it is, so therefore the DNR doesn't seem to have a problem with him keeping his boat there. The area where Tom has his boat parked isn't a spot where you can load your boat anyway. Maybe the big holdup is just the people in front of you who are loading their boat. I understand your frustration as this happens to everybody but patience is key in times like these where it seems everybody wants to be out on the river. If you have anymore questions consider consulting Captain Tom, I know him personally, and can easily say that he is a great guy who wouldn't mind discussing this topic into further detail with you. -Keaton

Can anybody tell me why Captain Tom gets to park his pontoon boat over nite on the dock at the public landing at the Dresbach Dam. This takes up room on the dock when waiting for others to launch and land after 6PM when his float closes. This is B.S. Angry

Can't park below the I-90 bridge. The road is under construction and therefore closed. If a person wants to launch near the dam, the ONLY landing that can be used is the Upper landing. Gonna be that way for a LONG time yet.

Park below I 90 94 bridge near dresbach and fish between sand and start of rockwall. Got one of my biggest eyes on a twister down there at 5 am. But caught many eaters at sundown. Of course that wall has to be above water a bit.

Was out at the Pettibone wingdams tonight from 6-8. Was targeting walleyes but anything would have been nice. One carp scale was all I had to show for my effort. Any tips/advice?

OPENING DAY!!! The float will be opening on Friday, April 4! After working for about a month repairing damages done to the float due to ice damage Captain Tom has the float in great condition again, and is ready to start another great year. See you out there! -Keaton

The condition of this landing is poor at best. The will be a very little room to park and tempers will be flaring. Good luck finding a place to park! Worried
