St Croix Boat landings??????

Recommended Posts

Guest

Looking for a decent boat landing on the St Croix between Hudson and Stillwater. Our monday night fishing league has 10 boats. Looking not to pay if we can avoid it. Thanks in advance.

I'm not sure if this is out of your way or not, but I launch from the Bluffs. One if the nicest launches I've been on and it's like $25 for a 1 year pass. Just get a washington county pass and it works for several parks.

I'll second the St. Croix Bluffs regional park. good well protected launch and slips. Gets pretty crowded at times. may be a little further south than you are looking for; but a quality palce to launch.

There's a public access just north of the marina in stillwater. Can be tough going if the water level is low, but otherwise a nice spot. The parking lot (about 15 trailer spaces) is right on 95, you can't miss it, then the launch is down the hill.

As posted above,the public launch on the north end of Stillwater is the only free launch around these parts.It usually gets pretty full though.Beachhouse marina in Bayport is 10bucks during the week for fishing boats but if you have to use the park for parking your trailer thats another 10.You can get a season pass over in Hudson for the launch at the park,I think its around 75bucks, less if you are a resident.Beanies is on the Mn side,Im not sure what their weekday rates are,but those are your options up in the area you want to go.

Benies is $15 on the weekends, nice and deep but gets busy. They do have several different summer packages. I think the unlimited one was around $450 for the season.

Otherwise further south is windmill in Afton but that's $19 but they do a good job. They have some there to help launch or load your boat (works well if your alone) and they will pick you up in a golf cart from where you park.

Welcome to FM, oldguy!

Good luck with the fishing league this year. I'm the new guy in the league this year, but watch out!!! grin.gif (Who are you)?

My vote...Boomsite (north of Stillwater). Its free, and shouldn't be very busy during the week. Beanies is right by I-94 if you want to fish further south, and I think it is $10 during the week.

Team Undecided (for now)

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys
    • Wanderer
      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack

      Tried to buy it last Friday and they were not available. System was down/messed up
