Can I get a boat in at the gap this weekend?

4 posts in this topic

I heard that it looks like I should be able to put a boat in at the gap this weekend---can anyone give me the low down on the ice conditions in the gap/four mile bay?

Yah, I don't know if it'll be open or not? I can tell you it's getting closer! I was looking at the Clementson Resort Web site and they are saying the river is open past Clementson a little ways. So it is moving and opening up, but...There is a lot of river to go before reaching the bay. Something like 14 miles of river opening in two days??? I dunno, ya might have to fish the river.

I'm coming up this Saturday and personally it doesn't matter to me. Bay or river, theres more than enough water to fish in the river and the Sturgeon fishing is just as good if you know where to look!

I'm just hoping it's not gonna be pouring rain all day on Saturday...Common nice weather!!!!! grin.gif

I called Schusters this morning. He said the river is open to Baudette. It is also open across from the resort and 4 mile bay is all open. He thought by tomorrow you might be able to launch and get to 4 mile bay.

      7/24/17     Got my son and one of my daughters out with Grandpa Smutka on Waconia this afternoon (I have football practice every morning this week). We targeted panfish alongside a weedy reef. Small jig spinners (1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig with a #2jig spinner and a 2" Powerbait Minnow) slow rolled over the weed tops caught tons of crappies and a bonus bass. A 1/16 ounce jig with a 1" Power Grub suspended 4 feet below a slip float caught crappies and sunfish, Caught numbers and some nice ones--beautiful weather and great time for the kids spent with Dad and Grandpa. Good luck, take a kid fishing, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I know back in the day, late 90's, people camped out along (approaches beside it)the forest road along Birch lake.  The road on the right, right before the dam on hwy 1 south of Ely.   I dont know all the legalities of thr forest there, they may or may not have been legal.

      The local state parks are also an option. Very modest yearly fee there also. Cliff

      Absolutely. I'd never get mad at a guy squirrel hunting while I'm deer hunting. Thats just public land hunting. Now if he shot at squirrels very close to me that's different. Maybe the guys I talked to had a bad experience but it isn't that frequent. That's what I hope anyway.

      Looks like the forest service campgrounds charge a modest fee.  But the are pretty nice.   Fall lake, fenske lake are a couple to consider
