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!).

      Went up to lake for week of fishing fished Adrian's  Morris point and Long point  6 days on lake. Fished Morris 3 days 18 ft of water west of resort. Did very well on good sized 16 to 18 in. walleyes. Slid out into 22 ft one day and did o.k. there too. Long point was just as good to me if not better fished 30 ft there. We had fish for a few meals and we brought our fish home. Didn't seem to matter what you had on. I used white glow  and pink glow.Sometimes minnow and bobber worked and sometimes jigging worked best. In my opinion fishing was good had no trouble catching fish.
