Fort Francis River Landing

5 posts in this topic

It looks like I might be shut down for landing my boat on the american side of Rainy River, anyone know conditions for the Fort Francis landing near the dam? I know it faces south, might be better shape than the one in the falls. Any help would be appreciated. The boat is just begging me to be put in....Sturgeon are waiting for me. Thanks....

Not sure about boat launch but check about changes to sturgon regs for this spring, changes where made to season dates and size restrictions

I just checked it for you. You can launch care free as the ice has been removed. Yep, the sturgeon rules have changed to overall length instead of fillet length and the May is no longer open season.

      Got more picks? Not sure with just this one. First glance, looks like an emerald shiner. Welcome to FM!

      I have an Eskimo and love it. I fish a lot and punch a lot of holes most outtings. I had to rebuild the carb this year, but I've had the auger for 4 years or so... Always starts no matter how cold...I've drilled with jiffy and can't stand them... The blades on the Eskimos last a long time and are cheap when you have to replace them... I drilled with a SM last year and really liked it, but they are so pricey. I got my z51 shark dirt cheap ($220 shipped to my door) from Glens Army Navy in Rapids. I'd go Eskimo or Strikemaster if I was you.

      I have Frabill Icesuit (Large) for sale. Never worn in the elements. I am selling it because with the warmer temperatures here in the south (I'm from Georgia) This suit will be in the closet more times than it will be used and on top of that my dickies coverall with under layers kept me warm just fine for my winter fishing trip. I bought this suit from Presleys Outdoor online for $250. Willing to let it got for $220. (Shipping included in price) I can send more pictures of the suit if you need.

      Sound fair?? Let me know....
