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.

      Split ring pliers  .... get them at Wal-Mart in the fishing section by filet knives.  makes it super simple!!   Was using them on small spoon taking off treble hooks for single hooks so I could throw a 2" Gulp minnow on it.   Makes it very easy   Bob

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
