694 bridge?

Recommended Posts

kais24

I think this is the right forum... Does anyone know of a 24 hr place to launch a boat so I can fish in the area of 694? I used to fish there when I lived in St. Anthony and I used to catch quite a few catfish from shore.

As far as I know there isn't a ramp open 24/7. I wouldn't really trust that area anyway because it is quite shallow.

Maybe if fish-n-geek has a chance to get online he'll be able to help you out better than I can. He's a tad bit more familiar with the area.

There is the Camden Launch on the westside of the River they have a nice fishing pier and plenty of parking. But like Lost said it's shallow North of the launch heading towards 694 if you use it be careful that strech of river just loves to eat props and lower units

If I'm not mistaken, there also used to be a launch area behind the apartment complex on about 75th and West River road? I know there is a park there and it seems to me, a launch also? You might want to check this out before you make any big plans with the boat, it's been along time since I've been in that area.

Wherever you go on that river, you might want to keep er idled down and have someone in the bow, with a life vest on, as a look
out! I trapped that river by canoe, for alot of years, and there are alot of shallows, boulders and old pilings that can tear up a lower unit, in short order!

And believe me, if you end up in the water, that current is alot faster and stronger then it looks! It will definately wisk you away!

I think the launches do close at 10PM in that area, well the park launches at least. The one below the 694 bridge and the one near Camden.

I used to be a park ranger in that "river front park". The park closes 1/2 hour after sunset.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
