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.

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
