Just wondering if anyone has heard or knows when the ramp will be open again. Was there yesterday and there was a policeman hanging out so they must be enforcing it pretty good. Thanks

No idea when it will open. I thought that they might not care about a few late night catfisherman, but I guess they do as I've heard tickets were issued recently mad.gif

Seriously???

What these Cities don't realize is us fisherman do have other places to spend our money. There ARE other options. If Bloomington won't let me fish on the river at night, I'll either move up or downstream to a city that will let me. Pretty simple.

A couple calls to the city would go a long way in "fixing" this matter.

They are not being consistent with the enforcement. No citations last night. Luckily.

At least the season is about wound down. I honestly think that if the patrols are fishing guys. No tix. But if they don't fish...... boink.

On a side note...

When we pulled off the river in Shakopee on Friday, local PD was checking vehicles and hanging out in the parking lot. I had a real nice conversation with the officer and informed him about the break-ins earlier in the year. PD wasn't aware that vehicles had been broken into, or at least this police officer.

What was also sort of funny was he wasn't aware that people actually fished until 2,3,4 in the morning. grin.gif I told him that this parking lot was full of trucks/trailers for the better part of the summer until the wee hours of the morning.

He also told me that the PD was receiving mucho complaints about young kids drinking and loitering around by the launch, but not that school is back in session, its calmed down. I thought that was weird as I have never seen that activity down there.

Anyways... was good to finally see a friendly face at the boat launch!! Keep it up guys and keep that garbage can at the launch. The city is actually keeping it maintained which is unreal!! Good Job!!

I have met a couple officers that patrol in early AM at 35w and found same thing as Hanson. They do not know about catfishing. I have had two talks with officers after coming off of river this year. I figured they were not fisherman and gave them a little run down on what catfishing entails!

Now, park is closed and some officers feel compelled to up hold the law, but I figure a little info on what I am doing down there at 3:30 a.m. goes a long way. Way beyond getting me out of trouble at the time!

I don't get it. Is this launch closed for the season?

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.

      Here's my new boat.  Saw probably 30 Verados in the past 3 days on the east and and west ends.

      We had two fishing tournaments this weekend. Walleyes on Saturday and bass on Sunday. I met the bass winners today and talked to them about their walleye win Saturday. That’s right, they won both!  On Saturday, they entered the walleye tournament but just because they were on the lake to pre-fish for bass. They fished with stick baits in shallow water, looking for bass beds. As shallow as 4’. And dang if they didn’t keep catching walleyes. Big ones, including 2 over 26”. 21 lbs. in all. Apparently, they’re pretty good at finding bass, too. Big $ weekend for them!

      Ugly Saturday on Norwegian Bay. One Pike off of Windsock Island, nothing else much to speak of. Cold and windy but finished off with a beautiful Evening. There were a couple of good eyes caught near the north end, a 27" and a couple in the slots but most boats didn't see much. I saw 2 caught in front of the beach at Life of Riley in a matter of a couple minutes.  Sunday morning we met up with some friends and went out of Tower. Dragging bottom bouncers with minnows in 24-32' produced 11 keepers between the 4 of us, largest about 16" and lots of throw backs. Best luck just off of Priest Island. 4 hours of fishing with everyone except me pulling them in the boat until the last 10 minutes I put two in the livewell. I broke off with 10 minutes to go and was going to quit when everyone said "no, keep going!"  Glad I did cause I finished strong and redeemed myself. Never give up!
