Sartell 7/21

Recommended Posts

Rivernut

Fished the upper 'sippi for year's. Fished Sartell for the first time today. Launched at the county park launch, more than deep enough for my 16 ft. Caught several smallies, a bunch of snakes, and a walleye. Various baits from jig and crawler, spinnerbait, tybes, and topwater. To the 3 punks in the yellow and white ski boat who thought it would be funny to run full throttle to within 10 feet of us while fishing 10 ft from shore and laugh their ---- 's off, I have your reg. # off of your boat. Hope it's not your parent's. Anyway, aside from that it was a fun trip. I must add that I know they won't see this, because no FMer would pull a stunt like that. Thank's for letting me vent. Mike

Reminds me of the old days when I would fish for eyes and be anchored on a corner north of the paper mile a couple miles. Usually a boat or 2 would go between me and the shore 40 yards away and 150 yards on the other side. I'd just shake my head if they waved. Nice fish MSRD! I saw a picture some other place on the net wink.gif.

The part that urked me the most, they made a 90 degree turn, just to buzz my gal and I. Anyway, I like that area. I'm thinking it is probably a good late fall spot. I"ll be back. I did see a post a way's back, and it said that there was a launch on the east side of the river about a mile north of the paper mill. Any idea if it is there, and how to get there? Anyway, take care and thanks for any help. Mike.

Yes there is a nice boat access there. Just turn north at the 4 way stop on the east side of the river in Sartell. You take a left after going a couple miles (don't know the name of the road) and cross the RR tracks. It's then another half mile on your left.

The sartell part of the river is very good for fishing, but on the weekends when it's warm and sunny there is a lot of boat traffic. Instead I like to fish the river on a weekday, the river is much more enjoyable with less boats.

Weekend fishing out there can be really frustrating. If you know your way around north of the county park traffic is less and fishing is just as good. Just boater beware there are some shallow rock bars and this year the water is way down so there might be some new ones as well.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
