Ramp Conditions

14 posts in this topic

Headed up to the pond this weekend. Can anyone suggest a decent ramp on the West side? I have a deep-V that pulls a lot of water and have already fouled the prop once this year. I don't mind paying to launch if the ramp is decent and less crowded.

Has the bug hatch slowed the fishing?

Thanks,

Bob

First, welcome to fishing Minnesota and Hot Spot Outdoors. Yes, the hatch was big but the other day we still caught our fish, slots and the bigger ones also.

Go to Myr Mar and put in, protected and plenty deep.

Garrison (public) has taken some pretty big boats along with Terry's Boat Hardor. Avoid the casino public access(very shallow).

Watch out for the rocks at the Garrison public landing-- if you aren't trimmed way up there are rocks right off the channel' s edge.

The casino ramp was very popular and very shallow last weekend. You will run at 1.5 feet deep from the opening of the little harbor till a ways past the bouys. A good wind from the east would make that ramp very intersting. If I recall correctly Eddys dredged their harbor as well. Myr Mar was the most crowded ramp I saw last weekend next to the Casino ramp.

Also, when there was a real flurry of bugs the fishing seemed to slow but when there wasn't a hatch, the fish bit pretty well. I wouldn't worry about it.

What does it cost to put in at Myr Mar Marina? I thought it was closed.

I put in today at the Myr Mar access and it was windy. As a result, a wave lifted the boat and set the spinning prop down right on a rock. That was the end of that prop. I was able to run the boat with remainder of the day but the lost of performance from the one bent fin was interesting in that wind. I know have a nice new shiny black prop.

Does anyone know how the Red Door launch is? I'll be going there in July and am just curious. I'm sure the launch itself is ok but i know it's shallow coming out of there. Anybody know for sure?

Thanks

I just got off the phone with them and they told me that they dredged it to depth off 6' and 5 - 6' out the channel but she said with the wind it probably blew some sand back in.

She also said there are some pretty big boats in there harbor and have not heard any complaints.

Update: I spoke with a gentleman yesterday and he asked when they dredged at Red door because he was there on opener and said it was real shallow.

$8 or $10 a time. $100 a year at MyrMar. I haven't used the access since 6-9 but think it would still be fine. Harbor is 3-4' deep opening into lake 3' deep. With all the rocks out front I'm pretty sure that no sand has washed in. I paid the $100 this year after busting up 2 props & 1 skeg last year at the public access by MyrMar. Worth every penny especially if the wind comes up out of the S-SE when you try to load out!

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      This bass likes 50F weather and a Senkos

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
