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....

      Made it out to Upper Prior just as it was starting to rain.  Set up my hub in 9 feet and got out of the rain but nothing moving on flasher or camera.  When the rain let up I drilled a bunch more holes in different depths but couldn't mark anything. Felt like the Dead Sea out there.  Got wet punching holes and no sign of fish so I packed up and left about 12:30 in a steady rain.     Landing was beat up but still has some ice to walk out onas of about 1 pm.  Found ~12" in each hole, some ice better than others but lots of candling.

      Leftover spring turkey permits go on sale March 20 The 105,464 leftover permits for the 2017 spring turkey hunting season will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Monday, March 20 at 10 a.m. Leftover permits will be first issued for sale by zone, one zone per day. The following zones have leftover permits, and scheduled sales dates are as follows: Zone 1 - Monday, March 20; Zone 2 - Tuesday, March 21; Zone 3 - Wednesday, March 22; Zone 4 - Thursday, March 23; and Zones 5, 6 and 7 - Friday, March 24 (due to the low number of permits left in these units, sales have been combined into one day). After zone-specific sales, all remaining turkey tags will be made available for purchase Saturday, March 25. Extra turkey tags can be purchased at a rate of one per day until the zone and time period sells out or the season closes. Leftover turkey permits cost $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents – each will have equal opportunity to purchase over-the-counter permits. All hunters are required to purchase a spring turkey license and 2017 Wild Turkey Stamp, unless they have previously purchased the license and stamp or are a 2017 Conservation Patron License holder. Leftover permit purchases will not affect preference point status for future spring or fall turkey permit drawings. Leftover permits can be purchased online through GoWild.WI.gov   and at all license agents. Hunters with any questions regarding permits should contact the DNR Customer Call Center, open 7 a.m. through 10 p.m., seven days a week, at 1-888-WDNRINFo (1-888-936-7463).

      Raining hard up there too JI'm?  Been raining here all day with a couple thunderstorms rolling through to boot.  Hope to still find some good ice up north before it's over.
