Baudette to Clementson

6 posts in this topic

If you dump your boat in at Baudette, can you motor to Clementson area without any hazards or low water? Have always put in at Vidas or Frontier so just curious. Thanks

Stay on the correct side of the nav buoys near Silver creek, watch out for deadheads and you should be okay.

Nav buoys should still be in up there? Dutchman would probably know, I have'nt been upstream of the airport at all yet this fall.

Slammer,

Just above Silver Creek (3-4 miles above Baudette) on the US side, there are something like 19 rock piles and a row of pilings down the middle. There are Nav. buoys which direct you to the Canada side & as long as you stay between the buoys you'll be good to go.

There is a rock pile on the Canada side at the mouth of the Rapid River. You probably won't hit it but logs like to pile up on it so head down the middle there.

Watch for dead-heads even if you just ran the area 'cause there moving all the time. We've had level fluctuations of over 2 feet this week as the North wind stacks the water up in the river and then lets it go. Should break a lot of dead-heads loose.

Good Luck!

Thanks alot for the info guys. We might just play it safe and put in down the river some where. I have never fished between Baudette & Clementson so had no idea what was there. Thanks again!

Just a note on the buoys, the DNR usually pulls them sometime in October to retrieve them before ice-up. Might want to check with the DNR of Baudette, Royal Dutchman or Clementson Resort to verify if they have been removed. smile.gif

Not that it matters, but I believe the county is the one that pulls the channel markers, but the DNR office is usually in the know on this as well.

WAR EAGLE!!!

      I also needed to buy a receiver so my total cost was $500 but they did have them at Scheels beginning of the year but you can buy it from dish. I think they charge $7 a month for use of the receiver.

      I was out last night in west metro and the water had mostly either frozen again or gone down the open holes. I was pleasantly surprised. We lost about an inch of ice though the top few inches were starting to soften.

      I would build a frame that your current otter sled would fit in that has downhill skis on the bottom of it.  I did this for my setup that is very similar to yours, I can pull 100 pounds through 8" of snow with very little effort.  Side note I wouldn't pull it with a four wheeler, mine slides to easy and wants to hit the back of the wheeler when I try to stop.

      I've got an Eskimo 949I which I love. We occasionally go deep off the trail to isolated lakes and my otter sled is too much like dragging an anchor when we break new trail or if there is deeper snow on the ice. I am in search of a slender long sled that pulls easier and can still accommodate my hub house, auger, buckets, poles etc.   ive looked at gander, FF, cabelas, Joe's and the like without finding exactly what I want. Does anyone know of a sled that fits my description?  Thanks and tight lines.
