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.

      We really need some new leadership handling regulations and a change on who they are obtaining input from. Find me one person that does not believe that Mille Lacs Lake is one of Minnesota's top 5 walleye destinations and yet it has the most screwed up regulations year after year for last 10 years or so.   Catch and release for walleyes? No problem. I can deal with catch and release but these closures I am sick and tired of. Give us back night fishing and surely give us back fall night fishing!   If you want to reduce hooking mortality then it should be done with some common sense regulations and not through closures.  I can't think of another lake that this type of logic of closures is being used to reduce hooking mortality.  Barbless hooks seems to be the most common attempt at other locations. No live bait is another common but more extreme method. Find me 1 person that would disagree with the effectiveness of reducing hooking mortality of these 2 methods. No, surely not is effective as every one sitting at home on their couch or out fishing on another lake.   I almost gave the DNR some credit last spring with the announcement of no live bait. Quite a ballsy move I thought but surely effective but then they caved................   I would like a honest conversation with the state of the walleye population in the lake. It surely has some holes in size structure which we can argue on what is to blame this on but it surely is loaded with walleyes.

      north an hour on monday was about 15 to 20 inches. really weird drilling thru it.

      Nothing open except the river in the LF area. Checked a small lake a few minutes from the house monday and was still 11-13 inches of ice. Was getting very honeycombed and melting quick. I would guess it shouldn't be too much longer if not far south things are opening.
