Fishing in Minnesota – Boats & More
Fishing in Minnesota would not be the same without Boats Available for Rent: We have two new boats AlumaCraft…16 feet long, with electric starting motors – 15hp Mercury (Steve said Merc and I Googled and discovered that meant Mercury). As you can imagine, Steve is quite proud and excited. Oh, BRAND NEW, not just new to us…thought I would clarify that. They are available for rent for $350 per week and $100 per day.
The classic boats are free with the cabin and you can bring your own motor. Prices do not include gas…at least it is not over $4 a gallon now – whew!
We also have a “new to us” 24″ party pontoon – great for big groups. It is available for $125 a day or $450 for the week, as always gas is extra. Just ask and Steve will get it ready to roll.
KEY 15HP FEATURES of the Mercury Motor
Large Displacement Design: At 21.4 cubic inches, this engine delivers the strong low-end torque needed to get the hull up on plane, with quicker throttle response and acceleration.
- The 15hp Mercury ProKicker features a compact, integrated power tilt and a heavy-duty transom bracket for maximum strength, speed and durability.
- Additionally the 15hp ProKicker sports an updated graphics package designed to compliment the OptiMax Pro XS and Verado outboards. Installed next to a Pro XS or Verado outboard, the improved ProKicker graphics will make your rig stand out from the rest of the pack.
- Patented Centering Straps. Holds the engine straight without additional hold-downs when running in the rough conditions or trailering (Standard on Tiller Pro Kickers).
Fingertip Control: Mercury FourStrokes are designed with a boat load of user-friendly features, such as our multifunction tiller handle. This tiller handle gives you easy one-handed operation of shifting, stopping, throttle, throttle friction, and tilt. More control equals better maneuverability.
Wishbone Mounts: Mercury’s “wishbone” style motor mount system cradles the powerhead and absorbs the torsional rotation of the crankshaft. By isolating and reducing the vibration transmission to your boat, it provides a smooth driving experience.
Long-Lasting Gearcase: Mercury’s 15hp FourStrokes have dual water pickups. So even if you end up in the shallows, your engine will keep its cool and not overheat.

We have plenty of room for you to park your boat here at Dancing Bear Resort. Plus, there is no extra charge for you to park your boat! You can launch right here from the beach. If you don’t like backing a boat up, Steve will be glad to hop in and do that for you. Like I always say, “Just ask.”
There is also a Public Boat Ramp on the north side of Balm Lake, if you prefer. The link will take you to more info on the Boat Ramp on Balm Lake.
