IS there enough water to run a mile for boat testing

5 posts in this topic

Can any one tell me if there is enough open water to be able to run a few boats for testing purposes? We need about a mile to a mile and half to run new booat models?

thanks

I think you got hosed by the cold weather. I think it'll take a 3 for days w/ temps staying above the single digits. then your problem wil be finding an access to launch from. In hastings the Mississippi has the biggest bend in the river. It is usually wide open most of the winter unless you get cold snaps like we have had. Off the top of my head, I would say thats is probably one of your first bets under 3 hours from brainerd. Hopefully someone has some better info for you.

I would get ahold of Evert's Resort in Hager City, WI. If there is open water it would be there.

I heard one time that there is open water year round by redwing because of the nuc plant. Don't know if that is true or not. i would be grateful to know if this is true as well so i could get out yet

      I know the lakes are open and that means some the first open water fishing spots are producing. Any one out there catching em yet? I will be riggin the ultra light up today so I can stop on my way home from work.
