LAUNCH

7 posts in this topic

I want to take a launch out yet this year, but have never done it and am not sure where to go out of. Does anyone have any pointers? Would like to stay on the East side preferably. Thanks for the advice.

Check out Appledorns. An FM sponsor!!!!

They are on the SE side and I'm fairly sure launches come and go from there.

FYI- It's less than 1 1/2 hours to Appledorns from St. Francis.

I don't know if they will be running launches out of there anymore this year. Remember seeing them pull the launch boat this weekend? They might, but if you really want to get into some fish, going out with Tony Roach would probably be a better bet. Whatever your choice, make sure it is set up for the evening, probably two hours before and after sunset.

If a launch doesn't work for you, let me know. Send me an e-mail and perhaps I could help you out, depending on how many people we'd be talking about.

      I would suggest concentrating on panfish this spring from a boat or shore. Your chances of success vs trout would be astronomical! These are hard earned life experiences. Learn how to fly cast. period. Trying to learn fly fishing on  trout stream will be a lesson in frustration as you will be tangled in more trees than the stream. Fly fishing from a boat or shore allows you to figure out all of the nuances of the sport before moving on to a tree canopy!     Good luck on your journey!

      Wow that stinks. I see Springsteel put up a pic in fb of 27 lb pike caught out there yesterday somewhere. Are big suckers easy to find in town right now?

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
