Good Morning Sunshine!..Your weekend awaits.

What a forecast for a weekend. Mother Nature is serving up a great one as both the sun is shining and the fish are starting to bite. That is the perfect combination for fall. Now add to that the bigest one day festival in Ohio, with Vermilion’s own Woolybear Festival this Sunday and there is no reason to stay at home this weekend.

So get outside while you still can and enjoy all the fun here at your homeport, Romp’s Lake Erie Marina! Because cool weather may not be that far off, so take advantage of all this sun. See you dockside!

Get hooked on Fall!

We said goodbye to a pretty nice summer and hello to what we hope is an equally good fall. These first couple of weeks since Labor Day weekend have seen the sun shine and the Perch start to perk up.

IMG_20140925_074123_357

But before you head out this coming weekend, know that the Annual WOOLYBEAR FESTIVAL is on tap for Sunday. Which means about 100,000 people will head to Vermilion for this big one day event. Those of you coming out to the marina should start your day early to avoid the traffic. Of course this will not affect your ability to get to the boat. We will have some parking for Woolybear, but it will be in the front field away from the docks.

So if the perch are biting, don’t be afraid to head out to your homeport this weekend to get hooked! We’ll be open 9-5 this weekend and hope to see you dockside at Romp’s Lake Erie Marina!

A couple of nice mid-week days here at your home-port!

The sun came out and the fish have started to bite again here at your homeport. How long it will last is anyone’s guess, but we’ll take each day we can get on the water. Because even a so-so day on the lake is better then a good day at work!

IMG_20140917_084101_217

There’s a couple of business items to bring up briefly so bare with us. If you have not recieved your Pull-Out information please let us know so we can get you a copy. Those who have theirs be sure to turn in your oil change order soon as those will be done in the next week prior to the first week of Pull-out. That way we can get you on the schedule and all taken care of.

Stop in and let us know if you need assistance filling out your order, or any paperwork, we’re here to help.

Also make note: Tonight is Vermilion’s last Third Thursday Event so be sure to stop in downtown and enjoy the free music, flowers and a sunset!

Time to cool down?…fall temps arrive slightly ahead of schedule.

Of course one never knows what Mother Nature has planned as she can be a bit of a fickle business partner. Thankfully for everyone this year already has featured a walleye season for the ages. As we look forward, even though there is still quite a bit of perch fishing to be done, it’s time to admit we need to plan for pull-out season. So here at your favorite Lake Erie Marina we have started to talk pull-out.

As everyone should have received their pull-out paper work, now would be a good time to review your records to see what you typically need done. Please be sure to fill out and return the oil change order first thing as those are done in September prior to October pull-out. This will help us get everyone scheduled.

Next you will need to be sure to check the services on the Pull-Out Order and circle a date prior to turning it in. Double check it just to be sure. Also Included in the paperwork is a handy-dandy checklist to help guide your through the pull-out process.  If you need assistance or have any questions be sure to contact us.

We are in the ship’s store from 9-5 weekends. Hope to see you dockside.

First up, if your out and about at the home-port and wanting to make a splash this weekend, please do so as this will be the last weekend the pool will be open for the season. We will close and winterize the pool after Monday of this week.

Next, tomorrow will also be Putter-Ports last day of the season, so be sure to get out on the back nine for some last putts of the season as well. Also, Dairy Dock will be open till 9pm for the next week until it closes for the season Sunday Sept 7th.

Finally, as the kids go back to school, which includes much of our staff here at your home-port. Our newly revised fall hours will be 9am to 5pm seven days a week for the office and Gas docks. Please plan accordingly.

There is still a lot of good boating left, and we hope to see everyone at the Lake in the upcoming weeks. Till then, see you dockside!..
