Rock Out With Your Dock Out


Let us introduce you to a great company that has found a way to give back to their customers, and the residents of the Fergus Falls and surrounding lakes area communities, all while showing off the versatility and durability of the dock and lift products that they sell, service, and install in the area.

Dan Johnson, owner of DJ’s Dock Service, an authorized ShoreMaster and PolyDock Products dealer serving the Otter Tail County Lakes Area since 2005, understands how important the dock and lift industry is to the Fergus Falls area economy. After all, a large portion of Dan’s business is the sales of new docks and boat lifts, the maintenance and service of existing docks and lifts, and the seasonal installation and removal of waterfront equipment for the area’s many waterfront property owners. With 1,100 lakes, Otter Tail County is, after all, one of Minnesota’s premier boating and vacationing destinations, and Dan Johnson has found a way to lead the area as a premier waterfront equipment sales and service business with DJ’s Dock Service.

“Rock Out With Your Dock Out”, an on-the-water summer concert series, featuring music from local band Confusion, is one of the most notable ways that DJ’s Dock Service gives back to their customers, and the community. “Rock Out with Your Dock Out is a thank you to our customers that we serve on the lakes. On average we get about 70 boats out on the water enjoying music for the afternoon. We have a lot of fun.” says Dan Johnson, owner of DJ’s Dock Service. The events are held on various lakes throughout Otter Tail County. The four 2015 Rock Out With Your Dock Out event locations were Otter Tail Lake, Lake Lida, and Big Cormorant, with Otter Tail Lake benefiting from two shows. The band Confusion has been the primary headliner of each event. With a clean, upbeat sound and an ability to play a diverse musical set, depending on the audience, Confusion has been able to watch the on-the-water events grow with each show, and they hope to continue playing the events as more and more people discover what it means to “Rock Out With Your Dock Out”.


The “Rock Out With Your Dock Out” stage, as conceptualized by Dan Johnson, uses 5 of the PolyDock Products 4’ x 10’ dock sections to create a 10’ x 20’ floating platform for the band to play on during each event. Dan chose the PolyDock Products dock sections for the stage in large part due to their:

Incredible Flotation Capacity – Each 4′ x 10′ section has a capacity of up to 2,625 pounds giving the stage a total flotational capacity of over 13,000 pounds. While we don’t recommend it, that is probably enough capacity to park the band’s tour van on without getting the wheels wet.

Superior Stability – Because when you’re rocking out with your dock out, the last thing you want to do is end up in the drink with your sound equipment.

Firm Slip Resistant Surface – The herringbone brick pattern looks great and features a shot peen finish so it’s slip-resistant and should keep your bass player on the stage and not in the water, even when they are channeling Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers during a moment of musical brilliance.

Extreme Durability – As Dan Johnson, and the crew that installs and removes the PolyDock Products “Rock Out With Your Dock Out” stage can attest to, the PolyDock floating dock system is incredibly durable and can withstand quite a bit of abuse and still look as good as a 1958 Gibson Les Paul Standard sounds.

ShorePort Parking For Hungry PWC Riders Now Available at Zorbaz On Otter Tail Lake

Pizza and burritoz can be all yourz quicker and easier now at Zorbaz on Ottertail Lake.

Riding a Jetski, Waverunner, or PWC can definitely make you hungry. When you’re hungry, you usually think about pizza and burritoz. When you think about pizza and burritoz, you think about Zorbaz. And when you think about Zorbaz, you think about finding the fastest way to get there. For many northern Minnesota lake-goers, a personal watercraft is the fastest way from point A to point B.  Personal Watercraft riders on Otter Tail Lake, the famed Northern Minnesota boating and fishing destination, now have a great place to park their personal watercraft while enjoying delicious pizza and burritoz.

Two Shoreports, or should we call them ZhorePorts, are conveniently positioned alongside the dock at Zorbaz on Otter Tail Lake. Tyler Currie, proprietor of Zorbaz’ OtterTail Lake location said “We saw how hungry our guests who ride personal watercrafts always seemed to be, and until this week we didn’t have a convenient location for them to park their ridez. Now, with the addition of the ShorePorts, PWC riders can ride in, park, enjoy our great waterfront atmosphere and delicious food and drink, and then head back to the lake place happy instead of hungry, and that makes UZ happy.”
