Henderson landing = be carefull

4 posts in this topic

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.

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.

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.

      I've got a 53" ski...41"pike and an accidental 22" smallie on V. I have caught a 31" eye but not on vermilion.  Id  like to get a 30 out of there.

      Sunday was more of the same.  Morning bite was strong than waining midday.  Isaac and I managed 30 more walleye sunday morning before heading home. Our biggest for sunday 27" 8lb 4oz.  We caught 6 fish over 23" sunday, (2)23, 24  , (2)26, 27.   River is now open past Wheelers point.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.
