Grays Bay boat launch

Recommended Posts

wmn luv me walleye fearme

Does anyone know when the boat launch opens up? It looks like the gate to the parking lot is still shut and locked. I drove by Grays last night and it looks like by this saturday we might have the southern third of the bay open. (A lot of it is because of the water they pump to keep the docks by the launch open) Was thinking of getting the boat out on saturday or sunday and seeing if I could get some panfish
thanks

That's a good Q. You may want to contact the DNR and ask them.

Thanks for the info Trailblazer, Looks like I'll be leaving the boat in storage one more week and i'll probably be under the bridge fishing the channel on sunday instead.

It will have to be open by APril 24 as that's when the Gander Mt. crappie contest is on Minnetonka.

I was around Tonka on Monday and the ice will be off by the end of the weekend. I'm sure they will open the gate very soon after. There isn't a gate at Spring Park

Answer I got was: When ice is completely off the lake. They said typically around mid April, Bummer..... After complete ice out, maintenance has some work to do and it will open. If the weather cooperates, I bet mid April - otherwise could be end of April.

Wmn Luv me walleye fearme, hows it going? I,ve been trying to find the crappie hole for the spring fish but no one wants to give me any info. Stopped at Winnie on the way to LOW 2 weeks ago and fished for a few hours caught 18 over 10" my kid thought it was great. LOW kinda sucked. We kept 14 fish between 4 guys in 2 days. Also went to URL since I seen you did OK there too. Go easy and good luck with the women.

Hows it going Bobberboy?, I've never been to URL so their must be a wmn luv me walleye fearme imposter floating about. Hopefuly now that I live near Tonka I'll be able to find a couple good crappie spots on Tonka , if not I'll be heading out to buffalo or Charlotte probably. Once we get some open water shoot me an email at [email protected] and we'll meet up to slay some crappies (or get skunked i guess depending on the day.)
The only luck I need with women is to make sure my wife doesn't come up with projects or other crap to do so I can spend more time fishing
have a good one

There's a boat landing at the Wayzata Yacht club that doesn't have a gate that I know of. If it's Grays Bay you want to fish, put in there and motor over, it's only about a half mile.

Maxwell and North Arm ramps aren't gated. You might try them.

Heard the ice is off Excelsior bay also.

called hallburg marine to get me boat out of storage, they told me I needed to give them a 3 day notice to get it out (lady was extremnely cranky to boot) so looks like I won't be able to get it until next week so if you see a guy in a Yankees cap fishing underneath the bridge on Sunday say hello

Ok, we just got home from a little drive around Tonka.

Trust me, it wasn't by boat!

Earlier I'd posted that Excelsior is open. Sorry, I got incorrect information. You may be able to get around the shoreline using a small boat.

We checked Browns, Maxwell, North Arm, Crystal, Excelsior......

IMHO, you're not going to be able to move between bays this weekend.
You might be able to navigate via the shore line, but there's alot of ice and junk floating.

We need big winds and rain to break it up. Saw a lot of ice that has turned dark, but there was more on the larger bays that was still white.

I took a drive this afternoon an most of the ice that was around just this morning seems to be gone this afternoon. The most I saw was a couple hundred yards of slush by brackets point. And the gate in grays bay was still locked this AM. From what I understand the city of Minnetonka is the ones that open it up...so be a pain and call them I guess.

Gate open, but can you launch as of yet?
When I spoke w/ DNR, they told me that even though the gate may open, they will have some clean up prior to officially allowing boats to laucnh???

I drove by it on my way home last night and there were about 12 trailers so any work that they had to do looks like they did it

If the gates open I use it! I was told if it's open they can't lock you in they have to leave it open! I will be using close to daily now until the crappie bite quits.
Tight lines all.
