Yes the launch is still there. You need a park sticker to launch out of there though. There is another launch on the Bloomington side under 35.

No sticker is required for the bloomington launch. The closest launch to St. paul without paying would be the Lilydale launch. They close the gates at the one at Lilydale at night though. Not sure what time.

Also there is Hidden Falls(St.Paul), but that closes at night also. There is no fee there either.

I have been night launching out of lillydale for about 3-4 years, and have yet to see them close the gate if there is boat trailers parked in there. A sign is posted for 11:30 close time, but have yete to see it closed. Do not test the hours at hidden falls, you will be sorry. They patrol very close there.

Thats too early for us. You know how I fish Gary. Me and riverhog have been called things like "extreme" and "hardcore". When we go out we are normally in it for the long haul.

      I often run into rusty crayfish when I'm in the boundary waters.  I tried to dig up some solid info on them but are they safe to eat? same as southern crayfish i wonder?  Suck the heads and everything?  It'd be a nice side for a pan full of fish in the BWCA.

      Maybe that's my problem, I'm not trying shallow enough.  Good report and hopefully I'll get a good report after my four day fishing outing this weekend.  Hoping accesses stay safe enough.  Wednesday night around 22-23:00 is supposed to start freezing and other then a few hours on Thursday and a few hours during the day on Monday we will be below freezing the next 10 days.  I just hope as its freezing people are not out there rutting up the ice and it can freeze smooth for safer travels.    BB did you do better with minnows/spoons/jigs/wax worms?
