water depth - landings

Recommended Posts

rollin

want to fish the south end on saturday morning 9/29. Anybody have ideas where to put in on south or east sides. Would rather pay extra to be able to park and not run a ground- 18' alumacraft with 150hp

i do have a state park sticker- father hennepin?

new landing on east side looks nice but shallow and maybe too crowded, any thoughts

thanks

Hunter's, Macs Twin Bay, and the Wharf, all are pay, but are a good launch, and your tuck will be safe.

We launched an 18' Lund at both Hunters Point & Macs with no problems. Both were $10.... cheap insurance knowing you're not going to nail some rocks. Good luck.

Yeah, the public launches on the west side are just downright shallow and dangerous!! The ol Ranger had a hard time at some of the launches last weekend!

What are the best options then for a guy wanting to put in on the west side? Public or pay - either is fine. How's the Garrison landing? How's Casino? If water levels are low I'm sure that one's really bad.

It's up about 5 inches from it's lowest point a month ago, but only a few inches from the level in August.

I'm lookin to launch my 620 but have had troubles with past launches as far as depth. I've heard to stay away from other launches cause of problems (theft, break-ins). Launched from Red Door & Malmo? on the north side. My question is places like Eddy's or Macs Twin Bay launches near the south end, are there drop boxes there if I want to launch late night? I don't suppose there is an attendent on duty at 11:00 at night? Also, how is the security at these launches? thanks in advance...

Went out of south end 2 weeks ago with 18' alumacraft with 150hp and looked at father hennepin but was too shallow to launch. stopped at a small resort just out of isle and was too shallow also. Ended up at walleye dundees and barely made it out. It might be ok with smaller boats. Beware of large pot holes at landing, it makes pulling out a real pain. Landing is uneven.

Esox,

You can put in at Hunters Point Resort. Deeper protected launch and you can pay the access fee in the bar.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?
    • biff
      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.

      Heard about these. Have done the cheeks but this ill have to try.

      While ice fishing on Caribou, I was gobsmacked that I could see my jig over thirty feet deep when peering down the hole.

      Funny and it worked.  Say, how did you get out without Mommy and the kids?

      Went up this morning. Taking the boat out in the morning on the 22 access I wont get out to far but it can be great for cats where the ice is.  lots of dead matter etc. we will see.

      Snow is definitely going down things are looking up! B season should be really good saw 3 strutter Toms this afternoon comeing home from fishing. 
    • IceHawk
      My opinion no. Nest maybe but time will tell.

      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell
