boat landings

2 posts in this topic

are the boat landings at Maiden Rock and/or Bay City good to use? I haven't used them before but am looking to fish Lake Pepin within the next week.

what are the water temps and water level like? has the river come up since end of Sept?

liphooked The boat ramp in maiden rock is very shallow maybe for a small fishing boat. Bay city I don't know much about that ramp. There is a small boat concrete boat ramp in stockholm below maiden rock also iffy no dock. If you are going to put in I would suggest Pepin Wi on the south side of Lake Pepin (if you are fishing mid lake to the south) and Red wing if fishing mid lake and north. The one in Pepin is by the pickle factory bar restraunt very nice with a dock also a fish cleaning room free for use. Their is a marina by there also they charge. The free ramp is south of the restraunt. You might find some crappies around the pepin marina also. A good ramp in red wing is collville park (sp?) on the south side of town off of hwy 61.

hope this helps

crappie getter,

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.
