Boomsite Landing At Night?

6 posts in this topic

It's been a few years since I've been there, is it lit up at all at night? Easy to find in the dark? I'm thinking about doing some nightfishing below the bridge but am concerned about getting lost trying to find the access in the middle of the night.

I stayed out to late one night, and although easy to find if you are familiar with the landing. However I also found two nice size sandbars and I am glad I was going slow because one was pretty difficult to get my 17 footer off of without getting out of the boat.

My map shows one in bayport, but is that even open anymore? If so, what is the exact location of it?

The only launch in Bayport is the Beach house marina.Its 10bucks mon-fri,and 20 on weekends unless you are there b4 9am.It sits right next to the Bayport park and is a very nice launch.If you know someone who works for Anderson windows ,they have a launch there to but its pretty shallow.The only other pulic launch which was just south of Sunnyside marina was closed but it is still listed on the hotspots map.There is limited parking at the Beachhouse so you need to get there early on the weekends to get a spot,otherwise the city wants another 10spot for parking in their lot.What a scam!!!!

It's not lit up at night and I would guess it's pretty shallow around there about now. Beanie's is usually a safe bet, but costs $9 during the week and I believe around $15 on the weekend. It's worth the money when the river is as low as it has been because the launch is nice and pretty deep.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?

      wow, that is one dark walleye!

      And no reports make forums no good. Participation is what makes this place great.   Do not discourage that!
