Launch at Beach House in Bayport

8 posts in this topic

Just getting ready for the 9/22 River Rat tournament, and I figure it will be hectic at Beanies that morning. Looking through the posts I saw a few of you launch at "Beach House". Can you give me some information such as directions. I know where it is on the river, but I wonder where you turn off 95. Also what are the fees, and can you launch early enough to make the tourney. I guess I also need to know the parking situation and if it is open to the public. Thanks for all replies.

If you are heading north into Bayport from I-94, turn right before you hit Woody's Bar. Holiday gas station is across the street and north about 1/2 block. Then head east about 3 blocks and you'll pull into the marina.

There is a box you drop your money into so you can come and go as you please.

Weekdays are $10

Weekends are $20

I might have missed a few details but that is the bread & butter of it. Real nice launch!

Oakdalefmr..you can get to the beachouse launch easy enough.You turn on central ave off 95,left coming from hwy36 or right coming off hwy 94.Head into the bayport park and when your just about to the end of the road the Beachouse is on the left.Its about a twenty minute ride by boat down to beanies,and most of that is the Hudson no wake.Its ten bucks to launch there if you get a spot in the lot to park.There are around 8 or 9 spots,there is a paybox at the launch that you use.There is also a pay launch in Hudson,bout the same price but more spots to park.Hope this helps...Hanson is correct on the price at Beachouse on weekends,its 20bucks on weekends if you get there after 9am.10 bucks before 9.

Thanks for the information. I thought it might be a nice spot to launch for the river rat tourney to be out of the crowds.

Because of the no wake, do you think it would be quicker for him to launch near Afton? I think its Windmill marina down that way?

Yea,it would be a little quicker from there.You still have a nowake to go thru but its not as long as Hudsons.Im not sure what they charge or how they operate the early launching stuff though.

Decided I would launch out of Beanies. I was there on Saturday and only about 10 rigs were there. Nice ramp and good people so I will stick with what I know. Pre-fishing was difficult on Saturday with the south wind. Thanks for all of the replies. Always nice to know there are other options.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
