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.

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
