Manitou Island Parking Permit


Recommended Posts

You need a pass to launch boat not park. You can get one at city hall on HWY 61 and 2nd street. 35.00 for season non resident. Also they dug out the landing at ramsey beech its better than the one at Manitou. Just did it on Friday.

I just fill out the form at the ramp and leave a check. The cop than puts a permit sticker on my trailer when I'm on the lake or they will mail you the permit.

If you are parked in the lot with a boat trailer, and it doesn't have the sticker on it, you will get a ticket. No need for one if you don't have a trailer though, and just parking in the car spots. Also, don't park in a trailer spot if you don't have a trailer, even if you have a canoe on top of your vehicle, that is sure to get a tickie too.

And watch out for the prop blowout holes with this low water. You can launch fine and lower you motor to start, but at the end of the blowout it gets shallow quick. Raise that motor or get dinged wink

I was watching a guy yesterday, would not wrench up the last 12 inches, just hard the throttle harder. Is that lazy or what? Maybe it was a new rig and he does know how deep he needs to have trailer. If I only have 12-18 inches I'll wrench my ranger the last bit. Beats causing a blowhole, Next time it cost me a prop, lower unit or drag bottom of boat on it a screw-up transducer.

Yep Jim, we basically stopped power loading a few years ago due to not wanting to cuase blowouts. Now we just idle up to trailer as far as "idle" will bring us, and winch the rest of the way. It's not hard and doesn't take more than a minute.

But on windy, rainy nasty days, we will give it a bit o juice to get a bit farther smile but not often. Those blowout holes mess up ramps good, and make for prop dings when folks don't know how shallow it is at the end of the hole...

cjac, you can just buy it from the guy sleeping in the cop car at the launch when you go put the boat in there.

      Might not have to wear ear plugs when I mow!      That’s a spendy one.  It wasn’t hard to find one of those for $6k.  Comparatively and Ariens of the same size is $4,200.  A home owner grade JD for $3,900.  You could get into a commercial grade Z700 for maybe $8k.   I think the work I did today with mine would’ve killed that one there.

      On the south end...   This year's MN Fishing Opener weekend was not only great weather wise, the walleyes and saugers were caught in good numbers.  A main fish gut hauler working with a number of resorts commented it was one of the most productive opening weekends he has seen based on the amount of fish guts collected after the weekend. The goto presentation was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   Four Mile Bay held good walleyes in 12 - 18'.  Not a surprise as the walleye bite on the river during the spring season was good and as of late, sturgeon anglers have been reporting catching walleyes on sturgeon rigs.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 12 - 15'.  Across the south shore, 18 - 22' was holding good numbers as well.  As you can see, there are lots of fish around.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well.   As a reminder, the limit of walleyes and saugers is a combined limit of six fish, up to four of the six can be walleyes.  All walleyes between 19.5 - 28.0 inches must be released.  One fish over 28.0 inches can be kept.  The possession limit in MN is one daily limit of fish. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers hit the lake.  10 - 15' of water was the norm.     Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River has been excellent.  The catch and release season continues through May 15th and then closes until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes were caught in 18 - 25 feet of water, a little deeper than anticipated.  Points were good as were areas with structure.  The morning and evening bite was best.       As water continues to warm, go to spots for walleyes will be neck down areas, shoreline breaks, points and bays.     The goto presentation was a jig and minnow.
