Deep Boat Launch?

4 posts in this topic

I have read a lot about the poor Launch conditions etc due to the low water but I am wondering if anyone has an idea of the best Launch free or pay to expect to take out a 22ft deep V cuddy style Glass boat, I typically need 3ft minimum with the motors fully trimmed up to even begin to get it off the trailer, a quick drop off is also a plus. tried Garrison last fall and nicked one Prop and from the sounds of it it has only gotten worse? any info would be great

Thanks Jeff

Nimbus,

Hunter Winfields in the town of Isle has a deep ramp, as well as Mac's Twin Bay.

Good Luck and let us know how you do.

Agate Bay is always nice.

I would say I agree, Agate bay or Mac's Twins bay.

With water levels this low, I figure a resort would be your best and possibley only option.

Good luck

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

      Shields and Mazaska are now ice free at the landing.

         Gentlemen, hope things go well this weekend. I, on the other hand, GET to go to St. Cloud for a surprise birthday party for my MIL. I know you all are jealous..

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.
