Freee Dockage for Put-in-Bay Fishermen

To better encourage spring fishermen to come to Put-in-Bay, the Put-in-Bay Village Council decided to offer free dockage to fishermen with boats under 25 feet long until May 14th. The idea is to let fishermen know they can stop at Put-in-Bay for lunch, to stretch their legs and use the facilities. For those fishermen staying the night on the island at local hotels, they'll be able to launch their boats and keep them tied up overnight at the Village's A and C docks.

The Put-in-Bay Village council has also frozen dockage rates at $1.40 per foot at A and C docks for the 2009 season, so with the cost of gasoline down, it will be more affordable to come to Put-in-Bay this season than last.
