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 have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
