Boat Rentals & Info

Our Boats

The boats we use at Pine Ridge Resort are 14′ aluminum Crestliner’s. They have four seats and can handle an outboard motor up to 15 HP. Boats come with oars and an anchor.

Of course, our guests are welcome to bring their own outfits. We provide docking space for your boat generally right in front of your cabin. There is no charge for docking your boat but space is limited so I need to know before you arrive how many boats you will be bringing.
 
All docks have electrical outlets at the dock for recharging batteries. Check out our Fishing Page for Guide Services!

2003 Crestliner Angler

The most popular rental is our 14″ Crestliner Angler fishing boat with a color Hummingbird depth finder and a wireless control for the bow mount trolling motor. Flat floor covered with non slip vinyl flooring, three cushioned pedestal seats, navigation lights, aerated live well, rod locker, depth finder and a trolling motor. To power the package, we installed a 30 HP Mercury 4-stroke with electric start. It’s a great package and far more comfortable than the old boats with bench type seats.

Boat Motors

We do not charge for the use of our boats for guests renting a cabin. However, if you want a motor to use with the boat, we do rent those. The motors we run are 15 HP Mercurys. We have two of them and they were new in 2002. They are two-cycle engines and very easy to start and to run.

Motors are reserved on a first come-first served basis. Normally, having two motors here takes care of everyone’s needs but there always seems to be one week each summer when everyone at the resort wants to rent a motor. If I do not have enough to fill the need, I can always run to town and rent more.

Gas for the motors is mixed 50:1 and we have that for sale here at the resort.

Motor Rental Rates

$35 Per Day
$175 Per Week

We include the first tank of gas for registered guests with the rental. 

 

 

 

Boat Launching
 
Because of the ridge line that runs through the resort, there is no room for a launching facility here at the resort. Fortunately, there is an excellent public access just across the lake in Longville.
 
Once all your gear is unloaded from the boat upon your arrival at the resort, it is a quick trip into Longville to the launch. Back at the resort, Pine Ridge Resort has five docks in front of the cabins where your boat is moored during your stay. Trailers are brought back to the resort where we park them for the week.
 
If your spouse is not comfortable helping with the launch, Terry is around to help with the task. He especially likes it when he gets to drive those big outfits with 150 HP motors on the back.
 
One advantage to launching in town is that the launch is right next to the bait shop so you can pick up your bait and whatever tackle you managed to leave at home when you packed in such a hurry to get to the resort.
Water Hazards
 
A major concern of all boaters, and especially those of you bringing your own outfits to fish or play in, is the potential hazards in the lake that can damage your boat. The Cass County Sheriff’s Patrol does an excellent job on the entire Woman Lake Chain of marking potential rocks, stumps and other items with large buoys  Hazards should not be a problem if you are paying proper attention.
The Docks
 
All of our docks are made of treated wood and are in excellent condition. To make sure, we have our inspector, pictured below hard at work, check them out each week. 
 
As you can see, we use old tires as bumpers. They work very well for the most part but can leave marks on some boat surfaces.  If you are concerned, you should bring along bumpers to protect your boat. An old seat cushion hung on top of the tire works great.
