35 Ramp

8 posts in this topic

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.

It sucks.... but they "Bloom" needed an area to bring all the debris from the Wind storm "80 mph" that wreeked havoc in the area....

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?

      Finally making it up this weekend to the cabin since January.  Looks like hit and miss weather conditions over the weekend, but I'm hoping to get some decent time in the boat...as long as the father-in-law isn't cracking the whip too hard  . That's good to hear about the success in Frazier, Matt.  Always seems like we are fighting for walleyes, but I'm hoping to change that and try a few new spots this weekend.  Hope everyone has a safe and good fishing holiday weekend.

      We are from Indiana (land of terrible eye fishing). Staying in a cabin in the oak narrows June 3-10.  This is our fourth year fishing the big V, but have always fished the westside.  Never had great walleye fishing yet.  We normally stay father on the westside like around wolf Bay or Norwegian, so we wanted to find a cabin closer to the Eastside.  Figured the narrows would be closer so we can fish spots on the west side that we've already learned and also venture to the east where I've heard the walleye fishing is better for keeper walleyes.  I'm looking for any tips or locations to try.  Maybe someone could help us out.  It would be much appreciated.  Thank you

      Hi everyone I am new to this chat. I was wondering what stage you think the panfish are in right now anything helps. Thanks Luke

      There is spots in the parking lot for roughly 7 vehicles with trailers. When that's full, you can park on the side of the road leading up to the access (I don't know if it's legal but have never seen tickets given out nor have I received one). The access is fairly steep but  in good shape. A 16ft will go up/down and launch no problem. 20'+ fish houses can make it up and down.    The access on the south side (past the Bear trap) on Highway 71 has much more parking and is a flat landing with 2 docks.   Water clarity is good. Fishing is mediocre.

      Haven't tried fishing there but I would love to go there someday.

      Basskisser, You will love the lake. Compared to other sizeable lakes in MN the traffic is much lower.  Plus Vermilion has so much shoreline with great bays everywhere.  I always have a rod rigged with a Rapala DT6 in red crawdad color and another set up with a fintech jig and tube in either a crawdad brown or green pumpkin.  The Rap works great if you want to cover water and just bounce it down a rocky shoreline.  The tube is perfect for throwing under docks or submerged rocks that your sonar points out.  Good luck and have fun.  There is some great bass fishing on Vermilion.
