I've found that the Cook County Forest Preserve webpage is one of the worst I've ever encountered! There's no information and no contact info.

I've looked all over the web, and the only phone numbers I can find concerning boat rental on Busse are no longer in service.

Can somebody please help me out!! I'm looking for how much the rental is and when the rental facility opens.

Thanks SOOOO much!

Can you bring your own trolling motor and just rent the boat there? Maybe we should have one of the WCTT outings this month at Busse?

If I can make that tourney it sounds good to me too. Always wanted to fish Busse by boat, but never have.

That would be awesome. I may be able to even squeeze that one in now. Much different then the almost 2 hour ride home on the construction riddled Edens :p Also love the idea of fishing a new lake. Besides the WWD I have never been out, but heard the scenery and structure is great once you get off the shore.
