Best Place to Launch near Kato?

3 posts in this topic

Is the best place to toss a boat in on the MN River at the 7 mile park area? How is that launch? I don't have a big ol 4x4 truck or anything so would I have any issues here?

How is the river level right now too? I have a small 14ft boat with a shallow draft (can skoot in about a foot of water).

Think I will have any issues?

How has the bite been on the MN. I know you cat guys have been having a bit of luck the last few days. How about those green carp (bass, lol) Any luck chasing those buggers around in the area?

7 Mile isnt the best launch and I havent been down there in a month but you probably wouldnt have too much problem puttin in there. As far as how the fishin is, well I have to have another decient night before I give it a thumbs up but any given night might be your night. As far as the "B" fish, if you are talking about in the river I havent ever seen one.

Where ever you put in at, head upstream.

Land of Memories and Judson and 99 in St. Peter are your better bets. 7 Mile has a sandbar that makes it very difficult regardless how small of a boat you have.....Did it last Sunday and it was not a very good plan. Your only option if you do hit seven mile is up stream, you cant even get downstream as its too shallow.....Best bet, Judson up stream--stay on the left run, as when the river divides up, the right stream get shallow right at the division, and you wont get all the way up with anything but a riverpro or a tunnel type boat.

      Well I am going out fishing today if ya want to tag along.

      They should not be in the deep holes anymore now.   The should be moving to that mid range water.   I saw one surface by the 22 bridge as i was driving by.    It was in shallow water.   Don

      it is open from the 22 access to the 22 bridge and i assume the channel down stream to cold spring.   Don

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......
