Henderson landing = be carefull

Got a look at the landing tonight and just a little advice, BE CAREFULL. The river has actually undercut the cement a good 10 feet on the left side. I know River Rat and Softshell Ed have been out of there recently and the landing drops straight off a good 2 feet.

Blue Kayak

It looked pretty hairy when we launched there on Friday for the BPCL. The cement pads are all undercut on the left (as you look down the ramp) from a gully. On the right there is the two foot dropoff that Brian mentioned.

I would think with the extra rain we've had this weekend the undercut area will have gotten even worse. The higher river level might make it easier to launch on the right side if you can keep on the cement pads. Get out and check the ramp throughly before backing your boat in.

Blue Kayak

I launched my kayak out of Henderson on Monday morning. Quite a difference from last Friday. I'm guessing the river is up 3 1/2 feet since Friday night. Looking at the ramp this morning I could not see any problems. The undercut area is totally underwater, and the two foot dropoff is quite a ways out. I'm not saying it is safe to launch a boat here. You just can't tell there is an undercut area by looking, as that area is underwater.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
