Bloomington boat launch

5 posts in this topic

I just got back from Los Angeles yesterday and I'm trying to get out in the 'Sota tonight. As far as I know the shakopee launch is still under construction and was wondering how to get to the launch under the 35W bridge. My buddy is kinda scared about the barge traffic that runs through the Blackdog area. How far upstream toward Shakopee would we have to travel to get away from the barges? I would like to just head down to Jordan, but my buddy doesn't sound up to it for a thursday night mission. I haven't been out catfishing in about 2 weeks and need to wet a line tonight!

Barges go up a little ways from 35w... leave your boat lights on and use common sense and the barges wont be an issue.

NO change at the Shakopee launch mad.gif

Couldn't they coordinate these construction projects a bit better.

I read recently that the geniuses in Belle Plaine keep hitting Artesians when trying to set the pillars for the bridge. Now it sounds like spring or even summer of next year. crazy.gif

Heard Wednesday night that they might have it done October 1st. MNDOT gave them some incentive to quit whining and get going on it. We'll see.......

Take the first exit off 35 after you cross the river heading north and go east to the stop sign. Turn right and drive down to the river. You can't miss it....

      Jim you are still alive? Long time no see....   Truck went through on Buffalo last night I guess. Saw the pics on facebook looks like the dude drove right into open water good thing it was shallow. That fog was brutal that would be scary dropping in with that fog like that.

      Went out with a friend today. Looked like it was the month of March with the temp and water on the ice, and they bit like it was March as well! Ended up with 30 sunfish (7 1/2 to 9 in) 6 crappies and 2 perch! Was a lot of fun best bite I've had yet this year! If your going out I would advice to wear cleats espically when that water on top of the ice freezes.

      The DNR should post a sign telling those unfamiliar with the lake that driving out from the main public access is unsafe. I don't recall ever seeing anything like that over there.
