Shakopee Launch is Closed

7 posts in this topic

Just a heads up to you guys fishing out of Shakopee.

We launched friday night to fish the BP Cat League and there are road construction "road closed" signs with a sign indicating that the boat launch is closed as well. We drove around and launched anyway and didn't get ticketed. However, it appears that there is some significant work about to be done on that side and I'd imagine the launch will be down for awhile.

Got to love it. Belle Plaine & Shakopee both being closed at the same time.

The sign said that the ramp is being reconstructed on the north side of the river. Hopefully we can continue to get around the road closed signs for a little while longer.

Looking forward to the "new" ramp though.

Hey Wastewater,

Howed you come out last friday. I was hoping you would have swung down by us. It was nice meeting you at the launch. Sorry I thought you were someone else for a second. smirk.gif

We got a really nice channel cat and a couple carp. Had 3 or 4 wimpy runs but no flats. That was kind of a waste of some beautiful bait.....Let me know if ya want to hit that stretch together one of these nights.

I was about to head down there 4:30, 5 a.m. tommorrow morning. I don't want to drive from Apple Valley to find out I can't get around the construction anymore. What about Jordan? There is a launch there right?

I would say it is definitely closed as of Friday night 8-26-06. Possibly you could launch by going over the curb, but you could also get a ticket. The police are patrolling, and the road is totally blocked off. We ended up launching by I35, and Jordan would be the another option.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
