Launch at Beach House in Bayport

Recommended Posts

OakdaleFMR

Just getting ready for the 9/22 River Rat tournament, and I figure it will be hectic at Beanies that morning. Looking through the posts I saw a few of you launch at "Beach House". Can you give me some information such as directions. I know where it is on the river, but I wonder where you turn off 95. Also what are the fees, and can you launch early enough to make the tourney. I guess I also need to know the parking situation and if it is open to the public. Thanks for all replies.

If you are heading north into Bayport from I-94, turn right before you hit Woody's Bar. Holiday gas station is across the street and north about 1/2 block. Then head east about 3 blocks and you'll pull into the marina.

There is a box you drop your money into so you can come and go as you please.

Weekdays are $10

Weekends are $20

I might have missed a few details but that is the bread & butter of it. Real nice launch!

Oakdalefmr..you can get to the beachouse launch easy enough.You turn on central ave off 95,left coming from hwy36 or right coming off hwy 94.Head into the bayport park and when your just about to the end of the road the Beachouse is on the left.Its about a twenty minute ride by boat down to beanies,and most of that is the Hudson no wake.Its ten bucks to launch there if you get a spot in the lot to park.There are around 8 or 9 spots,there is a paybox at the launch that you use.There is also a pay launch in Hudson,bout the same price but more spots to park.Hope this helps...Hanson is correct on the price at Beachouse on weekends,its 20bucks on weekends if you get there after 9am.10 bucks before 9.

Thanks for the information. I thought it might be a nice spot to launch for the river rat tourney to be out of the crowds.

Because of the no wake, do you think it would be quicker for him to launch near Afton? I think its Windmill marina down that way?

Decided I would launch out of Beanies. I was there on Saturday and only about 10 rigs were there. Nice ramp and good people so I will stick with what I know. Pre-fishing was difficult on Saturday with the south wind. Thanks for all of the replies. Always nice to know there are other options.

      Welcome to the forums. It's great to see you here.  Check out the Minnesota Fishing Reports Club for more specific information on that. Generally they will share general fishing report information in here. Otherwise too many lurkers see the info and specific locations can get crowded in a hurry. Check out some of the reports, follow the guys you're interested in and feel free to ask in their fishing report threads. Especially follow those who are part of the Official Fishing Reports Team.  Again, check out the club for the best info only members can see.

      Hey there, i'm new to the forum and very passionate about bass fishing! I'm from the saint cloud, MN area and i'm looking for good bass fishing locations? I prefer to fish ponds and lakes and im definitely willing to travel. Anyone willing to share a few spots? 
    • FishandFowl
      Thanks guy's. Good to be back. Sometimes life just keeps you busy. Didn't pulverize it just not ideal connection. Nothing a little Hickory smoke and some Cajun Spices won't cure. Here is a pair a friend of mine and I got a few years back. Lucky day to score 2 Toms in the same morning! Heading out tomorrow for some Walleye's hoping it goes well.   Thanks, Greg

      i cant narrow it down, just ordered a new regulator  and hose assembly instead; cant find replacement hoses locally anyhow that i could test out
    • SkolVikingsGuy
      Wondering if this coming Memorial Day weekend would be a good weekend to come up or if the fishing is slow?  Would love to have the kids catch some easy walleye if possible.

      Got a reply from the DNR to my last question, which included a reference to tournaments. She forwarded my question to another and I'm still waiting for that reply.

      In case anyone is interested. The link says 2017, but inside the link says 2018 https://www.cityautoglasswalleyeclassic.com/copy-of-2017-winners

      A region-wide effort to better understand West Nile virus in ruffed grouse is getting underway in Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.  “In the Great Lakes region, West Nile virus has been found in a small number of grouse with no known population-level effects at this point,” said Charlotte Roy, grouse project leader with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “Still, we want to let hunters know we’re in the first steps of monitoring the virus, and we’re planning to do some limited testing of birds this fall.” In 2017, West Nile virus was identified in more ruffed grouse in the Great Lakes states than in the past. The virus has been present in Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin for about 17 years. West Nile virus has been documented in more than 250 species of birds; however, not all birds develop clinical disease from the virus. Corvids (including blue jays and crows) are very prone to illness and death from the virus, while other species may be less so or may not develop symptoms at all. Last year, Michigan had 12 positive cases of West Nile virus in ruffed grouse. Prior to 2017, only one positive ruffed grouse had been found in Michigan, and that was in 2002. The virus was confirmed in one ruffed grouse in the early 2000s in Minnesota, and is yet to have been detected in a Wisconsin ruffed grouse. West Nile virus in ruffed grouse has become a topic of concern because of a recent study in Pennsylvania reporting that the virus may have contributed to population declines in areas of lower-quality habitat or where habitat was scarce. Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin are in the early stages of planning to test samples from grouse this fall but at this point there is no evidence that the virus is having a population-level impact in the Great Lakes region. “By monitoring birds at a regional level, we will be able to gain a better understanding of this disease in ruffed grouse,” said Kelly Straka, state wildlife veterinarian with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. Ruffed grouse are hunted annually by around 300,000 hunters across the three states. Preliminary reports from 2017 hunters were mixed across the Great Lakes region. While the virus could impact brood survival of grouse, other factors such as cold, wet springs during nesting and hatching; drought conditions; or habitat decline can also affect birds seen and harvested. Biologists in the region are optimistic that the great habitat for ruffed grouse in the Great Lakes states will help populations thrive despite the virus. “We are looking to hunters and outdoor enthusiasts to help us in this endeavor,” said Mark Witecha, upland wildlife ecologist with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. “This is an excellent example of agencies and organizations taking a proactive approach and working together to expand our knowledge about WNV and ruffed grouse.” Recently, the Midwest Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies Health Committee held its annual meeting in Traverse City, Michigan. West Nile virus was one of the topics for state wildlife health leaders. More than 25 wildlife health professionals from 13 Midwestern states and Canada were in attendance. Individual agencies are currently reviewing ways they will be monitoring their grouse populations for West Nile virus, and additional information will be shared when more details are determined. Like humans, wild animals can be exposed to West Nile virus and survive the exposure. Currently, there is no evidence of humans becoming infected by consuming properly cooked birds or by handling birds. Research has shown dogs can be infected but are very resistant to developing clinical signs of the disease and are considered an end host. Ruffed grouse hunting is open in the fall and Minnesota hunting information can be found at mndnr.gov/hunting/grouse. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Isn't that something how they don't recognize the blind as a problem?  I've had turkeys walk literally right next to it too.  Nice bird FishandFowl, hope you didn't pulverize it too bad.
