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!!!

      Quick question about the DNR launch on the very north end of Big Sauk in Sauk Centre. Is there ample parking? Also, is the launch in good shape? Too steep? Too shallow? I plan to go up this weekend with a 16 ft deep V.   Any fishin reports or water condition reports are welcomed too :-)   Thanks in advance!!

      Was out opening weekend walleye fishing. Caught walleyes in 10 -12 ft slow trolling minnows. Looked like the spawn was over and this coming weekend should be much better. Water was 55 degrees in the area I was in and didn't  get any other species.

      Good evening hooked up as a non resident you are allowed one walleye between the sizes mentioned per day no matter what license you posses. As others have stated, the smallness should be off their beds and the walleyes will be transitioning to the deep water reefs. Wind blown points or current are always good places to start.

      I'm not a big bass chaser, but last year I started tossing senkos rigged wacky around rock piles and docks and did pretty well on Smallies.  Green Pumpkin color seemed to work the best.    Stay away from white bouys, they mark hazards..... Unless you are creeping up on them with your trolling motor to pitch senkos on top of the rock pile.  I'll be on Trout Lake June 7-10 so if you want to text me when you get up to Vermilion I can give you a report on how it went for us.   Lots of resorts on Vermilion rent 25 HP fishing boats.     matt 612-868-1282

      Boat traffic isn't all that bad, there's a million places to escape it on that lake anyway. Bugs are usually pretty bad that time of year, and we've had a pretty wet spring so far also. But they're not an issue out on the water. You can launch at a different access each day, and it'll be like being on a completely different lake.

      Thats a great view

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff
