Take Advantage of the Season to Fix Up Your Boat!
Who has time during the summer boating season to give their boats the attention they need? By scheduling your boat repairs during the winter, you can hit the water as soon as the ice clears, without having to worry about mechanical problems. Northern Edge is taking appointments for everything from engine rebuilds and paint jobs to full antique outboard cosmetic restorations.
The owner, Leonard Cirese, explains that these antique restorations are becoming quite popular, as people get boats that have been in the family for generations fixed up and refurbished for display. Although it is difficult to restore the antiques to working orders, many enjoy showcasing the historic pieces, and Northern Edge actually has some in their showroom on display.
The best part of fixing up your boat in the winter – big savings! Northern Edge offers a 20% discount on winter labor rates. Visit their website to see a full explanation of boat repair services and rates. And save yourself time by bringing in your snowmobile for seasonal maintenance at the same time!

Find Handcrafted Musky Lures, Made With Care!
There’s no arguing that Vilas County provides some of the best musky fishing in the country, as musky hunters travel from all over to take advantage of our freshwater lakes full of big fish. Every fisherman has his favorite bait, and Leonard recommends his homemade glide bait, the Phoenix.
Leonard grew up helping his father to create a similar handmade lure, which is how the Phoenix got its name as a rebirth and evolution of a previous design. He makes each lure personally, hand-painting every detail with care. “It’s a nice change of pace from fixing motors”, he explains. This means that there is a limited availability of these durable multi-use lures, but Leonard assures us that there are some currently available that would make for a great Christmas present for your favorite fisherman!
A Northwoods Tradition Creates a Lifetime of Experience
When it comes to any service of product, you want a professional who really knows what they are doing and that’s exactly what you get at Northern Edge Sport & Marine. Leonard grew up in the Phelps area, and boats just come naturally to him. “I grew up on a lake, grew up on boats. I can remember always liking boats, and started taking them apart to see how they worked at a young age, which I’m sure my parents were just thrilled with,” he says.
For Leonard, boats are more than just a career; they are a life-long passion. He spent some time working on cars after college, but it just wasn’t his calling. Although he’s only been running Northern Edge for 8 years, he has more than 30 years’ experience fixing and working on boats (and we aren’t counting childhood tinkering!). And the whole staff brings the same level of knowledge. Team members Pete and David both have over 25 years of experience, as well.
