BOAT LANDING ON THE WEST SIDE

4 posts in this topic

I'm bringing up my boat for the first time this year and wondering if there's a good/safe place to put in the water on the west side. I realize us "city folk" aren't particularly welcome up there these days but I thought I'd give it a try. I'm a catch and release guy anyway so the slot doesn't bother me a bit. Any info on the west side would be greatly appreciated!

Public: Garrison is Ok. Casino is HORRIBLE. By far the worst I've seen for shallowness.

Private: Don't go to Terry's (explained all in the other post you prostitute). Eddy's is ok as is St. Albans Bay Resort.

I've gone out of Garrison many times this year with no problems. With the slot, you will have almost any flat to yourself.

Thanks a bunch for the response! I will, of course NOT be going to Terry's for anything. I have used St. Alban's launch service a few times this year and Dennis has been awesome! I wasn't sure about putting my boat in there though. I'll gladly fish the flats by myself!!

You may also be able to launch your boat at North Star Resort in Wigwam Bay (about half way between the casino prostitute ramp and Terry's).

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
