Boat landings

7 posts in this topic

I've never fished Red in the summer and want to try to get up there sometime this year with our boat. I was just wondering which resort has the best boat landing or if there are any public landings? Thanks for any info

westwinds has a harbor and launch...probably the best bet otherwise the tamarac has a public landing can be tricky with the low waters.....

The DNR dredged a channel to the lake late last fall so acess is not a problem at the tamarac

I've stopped at that access in the fall while on my way to grouse hunting up in beltrami state forest, the the access is on the river...I'm just wondering because of it's location on the river if that's a safe access point in the winter?

not in the winter......there is always moving water there and there are rocks in the area that keep things warm and unstable (pretty shallow)......people have claimed they use it but for 8 bucks no thanks i will use a plowed road on ice that is a little more stable!!!

As for Channels ( Canals! what the ? crazy.gif) West Winds has a great harbor/marina with a good canal out. The mouth of the river can be good also for summertime use.

Before this last cold snap the only open water on the lake was along the shore and in front of the river. I was geting excited I would have a 50 yard hole to drive my boat around in then it refroze.

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely are that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.
