Just wondering if anyone has heard or knows when the ramp will be open again. Was there yesterday and there was a policeman hanging out so they must be enforcing it pretty good. Thanks

No idea when it will open. I thought that they might not care about a few late night catfisherman, but I guess they do as I've heard tickets were issued recently mad.gif

Seriously???

What these Cities don't realize is us fisherman do have other places to spend our money. There ARE other options. If Bloomington won't let me fish on the river at night, I'll either move up or downstream to a city that will let me. Pretty simple.

A couple calls to the city would go a long way in "fixing" this matter.

They are not being consistent with the enforcement. No citations last night. Luckily.

At least the season is about wound down. I honestly think that if the patrols are fishing guys. No tix. But if they don't fish...... boink.

On a side note...

When we pulled off the river in Shakopee on Friday, local PD was checking vehicles and hanging out in the parking lot. I had a real nice conversation with the officer and informed him about the break-ins earlier in the year. PD wasn't aware that vehicles had been broken into, or at least this police officer.

What was also sort of funny was he wasn't aware that people actually fished until 2,3,4 in the morning. grin.gif I told him that this parking lot was full of trucks/trailers for the better part of the summer until the wee hours of the morning.

He also told me that the PD was receiving mucho complaints about young kids drinking and loitering around by the launch, but not that school is back in session, its calmed down. I thought that was weird as I have never seen that activity down there.

Anyways... was good to finally see a friendly face at the boat launch!! Keep it up guys and keep that garbage can at the launch. The city is actually keeping it maintained which is unreal!! Good Job!!

I have met a couple officers that patrol in early AM at 35w and found same thing as Hanson. They do not know about catfishing. I have had two talks with officers after coming off of river this year. I figured they were not fisherman and gave them a little run down on what catfishing entails!

Now, park is closed and some officers feel compelled to up hold the law, but I figure a little info on what I am doing down there at 3:30 a.m. goes a long way. Way beyond getting me out of trouble at the time!

I don't get it. Is this launch closed for the season?

      @YBOutdoors have you tried ice fishing it yet?
    • Hoey
      I really do not do anything different.  I use red UV glow rattle jigging spoons with a minnow head under the Vex.  I use a large fathead on a lightweight, large hook jig under the bobber.

      At this time of the year they are full of eggs and forage.  Not surprised.

      Anyone ice fishing the pike river flowage this year? Main lake or narrows upstream of Hwys 1 or 77? I may go this weekend. Thx
    • Wellesy
      It was pretty "healthy" fish I would say...quite a gut on it.  I'll try and post a pic later.

      So I purchased a 23 inch SUL tickle stick this years model with the white handle ( actually I wanted a 27 inch UL and got home and the rod was a SUL but the box said 27 I’m 200 miles from the store I got it from so can’t juse return it). I got it At the beginning of this season and the very first trip out with it the paint started peeling off the tip. I contacted 13 and they said I had to pay to get a new one because it was my fault and that never happens. That rod has never been abused. I’ve still been using the rod and now about half the paint has come off. I’ve tried sharpie, highlighter. Nothing works the blank of the rod is black so hard for things to show. Has anyone had this issue?

      I use a fish oil that comes in a pump bottle from Menards or FF. This stuff makes a huge difference for my dog. It calls for one tablespoon or 1 pump per 10 lbs so my pup gets 7 or 8 pumps on his kibble.  i also try to run the poor mans humidifier (boiling pot on the stove) on the really cold days. It has been extra cold and dry so far this year though.

       Flooded,  inlet valve is not seating from being warn,  debris in the valve, or improper metering lever height. The later is what I would suspect since you've already had the carb apart.  The meter lever is the link from metering gasket to the inlet valve. This controls the flow of fuel.  That adjustment is normally level with the floor of the carb body.   An incorrect setting will allow fuel to freely flow into the carb with engine off. Or it can starve for fuel not allowing enough fuel into the carb.
