St Croix Boat landings??????

9 posts in this topic

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)

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
    • delcecchi
      That is a strong possibility...

      Here is a photo of the foot.  Looks like a toothy gator.

      http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/21/fish-injury-island-lake/   DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery to repair damage to her foot which might have been caused by a fish in a northeastern Minnesota lake. Maren Kesselhon suffered nine deep lacerations and tendon damage when she was injured while sitting on a paddleboard on Island Lake north of Duluth Wednesday. Maren’s dad, Ryan Kesselhorn, says his daughter told him she could feel her foot in the mouth of a fish and kicked at it with her other foot to free herself. The Dickinson Press reports doctors at Essentia Health, where Maren had surgery, say the razor-sharp cuts, some down to the bone, probably were caused by a fish. Island Lake is home to large muskies and northern pike. A Duluth fisherman caught and released a 47-inch long muskie Wednesday.
