Public launches

Recommended Posts

Petey923

I tried to find the public launch to Sylvia this weekend and ended up on French lake. This is not the first time I've had trouble finding the public launch to a lake. I have a link that gives me general information but is limited to "SE part of lake". Are there any other sources for this information other than the local bait shop?

You have to get on a road on the north west side of the lake which runs (south) parallel to the west shore. This road will lead you to hapiness...

Petey923 - you were quite a bit east of Sylvia. The easiest way to get to Sylvia is to take the 2nd left out of South Haven (if you are headed west on HWY 55)and cross the railroad tracks and just head south. When you go through a bunch of residential areas close to lake on your left, that is Twin Lakes. The access is towards the south end of the lake.

Once you get on the access, head north and northeast on the lake and you will come to a no wake zone. Go through this and then when you are able to open it up again with the throttle, you should be on Sylvia. To my knowledge, there is no public access to Sylvia.

Thanks for the info! I'm gonna delete the link that told me there was an access on Sylvia. I'll use the link provided in an earlier reply from now on!

Your right Captain, there is no access on Slyvia, there talking about putting one on the north east side of the lake. Still in the process with the Lake Assocation. Just thought i would let you know.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.

      Called baitshop, he said people are going out from beach and a couple houses out. Wouldn't say how much ice. Who's got an ice depth?

      Had great fishing out from McKinley in 28 FOW on Friday-Saturday.  Caught a great mix of dinks, eaters, and slot fish.  I ended up catching five 22-25" walleyes, but my guest on Saturday (Chris Larson) caught the largest at 25½".  Best action was using a chub on a plain hook, but small jigs and rattlers also had action.  Walleyes still didn't like the sucker minnows. I had 8½" of ice where I was (was 6½" the previous week).  But be very careful out there because there are bad spots as people have mentioned.
