Help me out

3 posts in this topic

I was thinking of hitting the river on Monday. I would be coming over the 94 bridge. I have never fished the river, just been over the bridge and seen all of the boats. Can someone tell me where I should launch my boat at? Is there any free launches anywhere?

How about where to start for some walleyes/crappies. Just looking depth and whether to go up or down after launching my boat. Thanks to all for the replies.

And hey, good fishing

Beanies right off of the highway is a decent launch spot though you got to get there early. Or you can go to the launch south of Beanies in Bayport just take 94 to 95 and go south a little ways you can't miss the launch it's a bit pricey though.

As far as presentation goes and spots, try the channel by the railroad tracks- lots of boats there can't miss it. I'd try jig and minnow you can catch almost anything on that presentation. 15-20 FOW would work good this time of year.

Goodluck, I will be out there this weekend too.

Nice tip Eyedeas, The town of Bayport is north of Beanies however not south, thought I'd clarify that as to avoid angler confusion.

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
