Opening Day Launch Traffic

7 posts in this topic

Can anybody give me advice on launching from the Bluff's opening day? Does it fill up and if so how early does a guy have to get out to avoid major backups? This is my launch of choice, but first attempt at the opener.

Not likely to happen on opener... But I have seen the bluffs full more than once. Had to turn away, no place to park the boat.

Will Prescot or Hudson be worse than the bluffs? Is there a landing south of Stillwater that will get more pressure then others?

Thanks for the encouraging news about the bluffs launch.

Beanie's is a great launch site... a bit pricey but you get what you pay for. If there parking areas by the launch are full, they'll shuttle you back from more remote parking up the road. Plus, there's a baitshop right there!

With that being said, I'll be launching from the Hudson Lakefront Park! (I don't have to drive across the bridge!).

      Be cool if there was such a thing. Being people are getting so much more interest in pout it wouldn't be a bad thing I'd say.

      I don't personally own a smmity sled but I've herd many great things about them.

      Thats what I thought.  But I am sure that is what the guy said

      I think some people are obligated to keep what they catch. Me I'll keep fish but not very often at least in the winter. (Not on Mille lacs) Mille lacs you have the chance at catching a trophy sure maybe it would be cool to keep it but for a lot of us letting a trophy go is as good as keeping it at least IMHO.

      Very disappointing for the resorts as well as anyone else with a financial interest in the lake.  Me?  I release 99% of what I catch anyways, so the rule doesn't affect me much at all....well, I suppose it means I'll have my favorite flats all to myself for at least one more year.  I just really, really wish they'd let us troll after dark in the fall.    Why walleye fishermen aren't more amenable to catch and release, especially on a lake like Mille Lacs that's been on fire for, what, three years now, is beyond me.  Who wouldn't want to go and catch dozens of fish a day even if you have to let them go?
