Carver Launch

6 posts in this topic

Hi gang,

Hey, I'm taking a newbie out fishing tonight and was wondering if anyone may know the status of the Carver launch? Also, is the trestle passable? Last weekend we had problems launching at Carver because of the mudline at the bottom of the ramp, I kept banging the trailer lights into it (good thing it was the FishinLogician's trailer grin.gif).

Thanks for any updates. Good luck fishing tonight!

I know a couple guys who passed through there the other night and they had to have gone through the tressle, so that is passable, as far as the launch, I can't help you with that, but I do know the water level has come down quite a bit, so either it's worse, or they cleaned it and it's better. Not much help at all. frown.gif

I think they might have cleaned it up a bit. We took the dog down there the other evening for a run, and lots of the mud around the landing appears to be gone.

We launched there last night (Friday) and it was just fine.

Manage a seven pound walleye and two small flatheads. One cat was almost cute. He was around 4 pounds. The other flatty was 10-12#.

The tressel is clear. Go through on the left; going upstream.

You are prolly done fishing by now but if not, the launch was fine and the tressle was good on the left, as stated already. Good luck!

Thanks for the info everybody. We decided to go out of Shakopee and had a decent night. We had 5 or so runs, and managed to land 2 smaller flats. As usual, it was great being on the river, but it sure was warm last night. We had the river water temp at 83 degrees! Bumped into a couple of objects, but we were going slow so no worries. The river sure has dropped a lot, even since last weekend.

      Thanks for the update , Don.  Some of the smaller bodies of water in our area capped over last night. I'm hoping there will be walkable ice somewhere by the weekend

      The deadline for firearms wild turkey hunters to apply for early season spring hunting permits is Friday, Jan. 27, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. The spring season, which runs from Wednesday, April 12, to Wednesday, May 31, is divided into six time periods. Only people age 18 and older who want to hunt using a firearm during the first two time periods (A or B) need to apply for a spring turkey permit. Permits for the remaining time periods (C-F) can be purchased over-the-counter. Archery and youth turkey hunters can hunt the entire season without applying for the lottery. Permits for the last three time periods and youth licenses are sold starting March 1. Surplus adult licenses from the first two time periods, if available, are sold starting around mid-March. People applying for permit area 511, the Carlos Avery State Wildlife Management Area, are advised that the sanctuary portion of the WMA will be closed to turkey hunting except for the special hunt for hunters with disabilities. For turkey hunting, a person may only use shotguns 20 gauge or larger, including muzzleloading shotguns. Only fine shot size No. 4 and smaller diameter may be used, and red dot scopes and range finders are legal. Visit the turkey hunting page  for more information about turkey hunting.

      We did some roadside scouting in the Chippewa national forest on Sunday. Put on a pile of miles driving the forest roads with the fresh dusting of snow and never cut a track. Kinda disappointing, but my daughter wasn't really up for it.    Season is still young.

      well we found a small amount of ice. But it was only about 1"thick. And only reached out a couple hundred yards at best. The swans were loving all the open water that's for sure.    Those that did come up to the GTG had a good time despite the lack of ice. Mostly hunting for grouse and rabbits. Plenty of both seen, but the shooting was less than stellar.
