Which boat landing?

5 posts in this topic

If I wanted to get to the "pump house" or "the pump" with my 16' boat, which would be the best boat landing? Rices, Knife river or some other one?

I was contemplating dropping the boat in at the knife river landing but not sure of there is one closer to Duluth thats near the "pump".

Around 20 years ago they was a proposal to put a safe harbor in at Brighton Beach. Wouldn't that have been nice.

As of now Rice's Point is the closest access.

Wade, I'll be out there this weekend with my 16' boat. I am out there most weekends, and never look back on why i did it. some say your crazy in a 16' boat..i don't think i am.

Also, yes, Rices is the best launch point around.

Make sure you have atleast 1 drift sock. you may need more than that depending on how slow your can go. (unless your going to try jigging as you posted earlier)...then you just need long...long....long rope with a heavy anchor!

Also, yes, Rice's is the best launch spot around.

If your going out, and wanna follow someone, let me know. I can cruise about 26-28 MPH with my boat and a 50HP Merc.

Unfortunately i didn't make it out today, and tonight isn't lookig good either. I'll be out between 10am and noon hopefully both Saturday and Sunday.

Email me and i'll keep in touch. It sounds like a few might be out and about on Sat and Sun from the board if the wind cooperates.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.
