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.

      Leftover spring turkey permits go on sale March 20 The 105,464 leftover permits for the 2017 spring turkey hunting season will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Monday, March 20 at 10 a.m. Leftover permits will be first issued for sale by zone, one zone per day. The following zones have leftover permits, and scheduled sales dates are as follows: Zone 1 - Monday, March 20; Zone 2 - Tuesday, March 21; Zone 3 - Wednesday, March 22; Zone 4 - Thursday, March 23; and Zones 5, 6 and 7 - Friday, March 24 (due to the low number of permits left in these units, sales have been combined into one day). After zone-specific sales, all remaining turkey tags will be made available for purchase Saturday, March 25. Extra turkey tags can be purchased at a rate of one per day until the zone and time period sells out or the season closes. Leftover turkey permits cost $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents – each will have equal opportunity to purchase over-the-counter permits. All hunters are required to purchase a spring turkey license and 2017 Wild Turkey Stamp, unless they have previously purchased the license and stamp or are a 2017 Conservation Patron License holder. Leftover permit purchases will not affect preference point status for future spring or fall turkey permit drawings. Leftover permits can be purchased online through GoWild.WI.gov   and at all license agents. Hunters with any questions regarding permits should contact the DNR Customer Call Center, open 7 a.m. through 10 p.m., seven days a week, at 1-888-WDNRINFo (1-888-936-7463).
