The bog had broke loose blew into the landing. I checked it two weeks ago and there was 20 yards of cattails in front of the landing.

Thanks for the info!!

Not the first or the last time that has happened on Clearwater. Have seen some big islands of floating bullrush over the years smile

Any updates as to the condition of the landing? Is the bog cleared yet, or still obstructing?

I have been told it is still blocked but havn't been there to witness for myself. Supposedly the DNR is going to blow up the bog-explosive style. That would be fun to see!

My son and I visited the "Black Pool" via boat two weeks ago to witness the Bog. I was very surprised by the size of it. It will be interesting to see what will be engineered and exercised to displace or move/remove the mass.

Although we have not had a launching/parking issue at the Bay Club landing, possibly the DNR could negotiate temporary overflow parking with what appears to be a vacant and for sale structure directly across the road.

that lot a cross the road from the access can be used but they ask that you park in the back row. I parked over there the last time I was out there.

Sounds like they are going to take care of the bog this week or next before the fourth of july. I heard they were going to blow it up(not sure the truth of that) it would be cool to witness though.

This will help out tons as the bay club landing has been packed just about every weekend now for just over a month. Two weeks ago I had to wait for over a half hour just to get loaded coming off the lake.

Still dont understand why they made that landing a one boat landing now when it was two before. The cement work is very slippery especially in the fall when temps flirt with freezing.

Word around the campfire is one of the cabin owners in the black pool there pushed that bog over infront of the landing because it originally ended up in front of his cabin. He's been bragging about it, not sure how to prove something like that but I hope he gets the $8000 bill to remove it.

Why don't they just get a group of boats to hook up to it and pull it out of there?

That thing is so big, I don't see how a home owner could move it on his own.

All i know is my buddies dad wants to put the houseboat in and is all PO'd because this guy was bragging to him about pushing that bog over infront of the landing. I heard it from my buddies mother. So whatever thats worth. I would think a guy with time and a bigger HP motor could do it. It originally floated over there from the wind, as long as its floating I would think a guy could push it.

That's a lot of good cover they are going to trash. So they can launch a barge or 4 at another ramp and push that thing back where it came from? I don't think one person could move that even with a 250H.

I think they are doing the right thing with this by removing it. Moving it only sounds like a temporary fix to me. The lake is full of cover, so removing it won't upset the fish too much! grin

It'll be interesting to see how that bay is reconfigured structurally after this event is all said and done.

This is the report I recieved from the DNR on this past Monday. The bog removal was advertised for bid and last week an award letter was sent to the successful bidder. We are in the process of collecting the necessary documents from the contractor and upon receiving them, the project can proceed. The contractor will have a couple weeks to complete the project.

This landing is still in ROUGH shape. It's basically a mud/muck puddle, with decaying vegetative particulate matter and loose chunks of bog. I used it today, but I won't use it again any time soon. I can't imagine how much little pieces of grass and dirt got sucked into my intake vents.

      We have Hoey, but it's easier to go off the Warroad access to get to where we normally go.

      Nice video. Thank you @papadarv NOTE:We will be updating the forums and all videos uploaded here will go straight to a player that folks can just click and watch instead of downloading and watching.

      Out Saturday afternoon doing some sight fishing with my camera on one of Chisago County lakes. Water was a bit dirty and with 26 inches of ice camera clarity was a bit lacking. Did get some nice video of the afternoon. Battery augers failed after a couple of holes so went with the Eskimo gas. Lots of fish above the weeds in 10 FOW.  EazyCam site fishingHB.mp4

      Weather forecast looks to be consistent starting Wednesday with average temps in the  mid 20's. Consistency typically good.  Right now anglers are working fish hard and putting fish in the pail. Electronics are playing a huge roll as some walleyes suspended as far as 10 feet below the ice. Most resorts are out in 31' with some in a touch shallower. More saugers in deep mud with walleyes shallower. Reefs to the west also productive with a few perch being pulled in as well. Rattle and flutter action spoons doing well. Gold, pink, and other glow colors best.  Pike already active in shallow water.  Auger extension needed if fishing on your own with 3+ feet of ice in most areas.  Snowmobilers stay on marked trail, big ice chunks off of trail. Ice houses allowed to be left on lake through March 31st, walleyes open through April 14, pike all year.   Rainy River pushing out some bigger walleyes in the morning/evening with an occasional sturgeon.  Local fish houses along the snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point to Baudette Bay.  Morning, evening bite most effective.   The NW Angle continues to put nice fish in the bucket. Walleyes and saugers in good numbers.  20-24' early and late, 26-30' during day.  In Ontario waters, crappies in deeper holes of 28-32' on light tackle set ups. Mortality rate is high for released crappies in 25' or deeper, catch fish and move on.  Walleyes all over!  Snowmobile trails on and around the lake are marked and groomed.

      Hi all hope to make it this Saturday. Depending on the snow coming we should be able to drive on correct?
    • Hoey
      This past weekend, only two were caught by our group of three fishermen and they were small, in the 10" range.  
    • Hoey
      Why not go out of Swift?  I nothing about the Warroad access, sorry.  
    • Hoey
      OK - we made it back!!!  Every trip is different with it's own potential perils.   I finally got into my house on Friday around 11am.  My guests were rookies, so i spent time with each of them, getting setup, heaters started, Vexilars set, houses banked, lines prep'd and set, bait, etc...  The bite was somewhat slow and many small ones.  The day got better 3 to 430pm.  Ended up with 6 nice eyes (19, 18x3, 17x2), 13 jumbos (most ever for a day), 12 small sauger which we ate for dinner.   On Saturday we headed up to the south shore of the Angle, longer ride, so again did not get started too early.  Ended up with our 6 eyes for our limit, these ranged from 15 to 16 inches and a 4-pack of sauger.  Again the bite seemed to pickup at 3 or so and was done by 430pm.   Ice as 3 foot or so.  Snow depth varied a lot, depending on the condition of the ice.  Smooth areas were blown off to crusty 6 inches or so.  Rough ice surely held a lot of snow.   The drive back on Sunday was somewhat tough from Baudette to Emily, winter storm warning.  Slow go, low visibility, and icy roads, sometimes down to 15 mph.   Next scheduled trip is with my wife, son, and three of his Gopher swim teammates for spring break in three weeks.

      Those were caught from a shallow lake (17’) in 9 feet of water at the bottom of the first shoreline break. I was using a UV buckshot and minnow head since the water was murky. The crappie is still swimming the walleye not so much. I didn’t get the exact location. Sorry

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week, 

      Sunset Lodge
