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.

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.

      Was the bad rotator cup cause from catching to many big fish?If that's the case I'll take one for the team

      Heck of a float today!  I released 22 and biggest was just over 19.  Lotta nice sized fish.  My friend was out for the first time on the river and just 2nd time in a yak and he had a ball. Ended up with 8 after he started using my stick baits and got the hang of it.  First time up on that stretch this year.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
