Casino Launch?

8 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone has launched out of the Casino launch lately. Just debating if I could make it out of that launch with the main motors up and using my electric.

A friend of mine put in there last week with a 18' Pro-V and 175hp motor. He made it out fine when it was calm but was banging the bottom of the boat on the rocks in the waves coming in. I'm not sure if the water has risen slightly due to the rain last week or not. Somebody else can probably give you a more recent report on that landing.

We fished Indian point that night and it was downright treacherous out in the main lake; the fishing was poor and not worth the risk of poking holes in the hull. Watch out guys & gals!

Yes, I'm originally from Moorhead. Instead of going fishing last night I went to the Spuds football game in Buffalo. First spud game I've been to since we won state in 87.

I'm assuming we must know each other? I looked at your profile and yes we do. I remember you used to be big time into one of the hard rock bands. I can't remember the name of the band right now though.

Are you going to be up on Mille Lacs this weekend? Chad Tabatt is meeting me up their.

Send me an email

I got in and out last Saturday night w/o touching bottom in my ProSport 1675/Y115. It was deal calm that night though. With any kind of wind I'd expect to get out and push becasue the "channel" is real narrow.

      I've been going to the Landing regularly for the past 10+ years. I think that ownership has changed due to bad management more than anything. When Jack bought the place again, it was hopping because he gave everyone what they wanted...a fun place with good value. That was only four or five years ago. That in itself proves that the cost of entry doesn't preclude reasonable prices. I've had one interaction with the new owners, or more specifically one of them. He was extremely nice and help me out when I was in a bind. I'll still go there for a beer or two but in general don't frequent fancy places because I save my money for other things in life.   I think why people complain is because it is the only option on the west end of the lake. There are off-lake options like the Crescent but it's not on the water. With The Landing it's like someone took something away from the lake. I believe that is the emotion that is being tapped. If there were three on-lake options on the west end of the lake and one went fancy, then probably no problem. That's my take.   One would hope that local economics would guide decisions at such a place. If the majority of customers want X, you provide X. The new owners have been providing Y for a while now and don't seem to mind if that hits them in the wallet. That's their choice and I'm fine with it. I just won't eat there often if at all because it's not what I want when on the lake.

      From what I understand the walleye population is still a little high for the long term health of the Red Lakes.   A perfect example of that is that Buddy just got across that pressure ridge Sunday so Hillman's road is just now getting to their normal fishing areas. Awesome pictures once a cop. I'm getting old but I can remember when if there were 10 of us fishing on Center Bar it was too crowded.   Since those pictures were taken both Hillman's and Beacons have extended out another 2 miles.

      I dont think you will have trouble. Just be careful. There are a million trucks driving all over the place now

      Big Pine as of 1/15 had 16" of ice on the north side.  Only drilled 5 holes and all were around 16" according to my ice scoop.  Just placed fish house out there for the nephew and called it good.  Sorry no fishing report.
