Brule Narrows navigating

3 posts in this topic

Hi Guys,

Looking at heading east on our 44-foot houseboat late July through Brule Narrows. Just received my Hot Spots map and it looks like the Narrows could be tricky. How difficult is it navigating through the Narrows? Also, are there particular spots on the east side U.S. that are great tie-up spots for families (ie sandy, good swimming, etc..) THANKS AGAIN!!

Most of the Narrows isn't tricky at all. The hardest part is on the upstream side/east end of the narrows where you have to make a couple 90's, but even that is not too bad. I have driven many houseboats through those narrows, and they are not as intimidating as they appear, just take it slow and you'll be fine.

As far as a good place to park the boat once you are through the narrows. Saginaw Bay, Kempton Channel, and Big Island are home to many nice sand beach houseboat sites. Finding one that is open on the other hand, can be a little trickier.

Take Care and Good Luck Fishing!

We have gone thru several times and it is several sharp turns but not real tricky. Go slow and watch the bouys.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
