Opener around Stillwater

3 posts in this topic

What is the best spot to launch on opener. I used to go out by the boom site north of stillwater. That lauch and area was always pretty shallow and I bought a new boat this year. Any other launches or is that launch improved from 4 years ago? Thanks in advance.

the boomsite- the crown jewel of public landings! a whopping 15 or so parking spots, a 1/2 mile walk up a half mile vertical drop, 6" of water to try and launch your boat into, and a fairly good chance of getting your window smashed and your stereo stolen. And the only friggin public launch for the next 20 miles or so downstream. Honestly, I would bite the bullet and buy a launch at any given marina.

      As far as I know every vechicle at every access has to pay a road fee .

      I use my 1660 Lund Pro-V Tiller for fishing Superior all of the time. I have 2' of track on both sides to hold my 4 aluminum rod holders and my triple trees. If you start using magnum dipsys with the ring they can pull hard enough to break most plastic rod holders. In the spring you are basically fishing the top 15' with plugs so any rod holder will do. Once you start trying to get to 40' and beyond is when you need to beef things up. I also have a mast and use the single big boards that Marine General sells for getting a good spread with you plugs. Once summer rolls around I will use Yellow Birds with 5 colors of lead on the outside  and dipsy's with 65lb Power Pro or steel depending on what depth I am trying to achieve to pull spoons or flies.

      I see that the Royal Dutchman website had a blurb a couple days (2/17) ago that said nothing was happening yet, they also don't know how thick the ice is.  As usual hoping for a long spring season before it closes for walleye.  On a positive note most of the snow must have already melted with the record warmth so maybe won't be so much to cause runoff later on?
