Ne w Landing in Works

2 posts in this topic

The DNR is in the process of purchasing a tract of land approxiamtely 10 miles northwest of Hallock to install a new boat landing facility. The landowner is willing to sell and in the process of finalizing the sale arrangements. The Kittson County Board of Commissinors must approve the land transfer. Hopefully, they will do so as a new landing is needed here in Kittson County. The current landing is at the Golden Grain Bridge straight west of Hallock on HYW 175. The DNR never got the ramp cleaned there last summer due to silt problems. The current landing is in a poor site as it is basically a dishbowl that is a magnet for heavy silt deposits when the river comes up. The maintence cost and constant challege to keep the old site free of silt so it could be opened has finally resulted in the DNR seekin a new boat access site. The old site would be maintained for shore fishing but the ramp will be closed if the new ramp deal goes through. The new site will have a parking lot at a higher elevation and there will be slope to back down which should be easier to mainatin. Should things go as planned the acess would be developed this summer for possble use as earlier as this fall. Will keep you posted.

More and improved landings are well overdue on the whole run of the Red and it's tribs. It has been a hard fight to get either ND or MN to cut funds to do them.

Sportsmans clubs and comunities have been the best bet to get new areas open and maintained, then the states at least look at matching funds.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!
