Fishermans Inn Landing....

Recommended Posts

CrappieJohn

want to take a minute to remind those who use Fisherman's Inn landing that this is NOT a free launch site. Things have changed from last year as well.

If you launch and park in the spaces at roadside, the fee is 3.00.

If you launch and prefer lot parking, the fee is 5.00.

The annual fee has increased to 50.00.

Remember that towing is possible for non-paying violaters and that the annual pass is good only for ONE boat. Lending the pass will result in revocation!

While this launch site may be handy, the public (free) site is at the other end of the lake near the power dam. As yet the Sandy Point launch site is not open.

I think the Sandy Point access is a joke! A guy really has to back her in a long way just to get the boat off the trailer. Unless you want to wade in the muck/silt I wouldn't use that ramp much. I'm sure some guys will still prefer to use it but the Ponderosa ramp is by far a much better facility!

Tom, does Fisherman's Inn still have the honor box or will they have an attendant. Also how do they know if you paid or not? Is there some kind of window tag showing you paid.

Another thing when the water is low you have to be careful not to back in too far because your trailer wheels will fall off the end of the concrete ramp and then you got trouble.

Its well monitored. I think they will be writing the trailer reg. number on season passes this year. Those with no number or a different trailer than what is on the pass, invalidates the pass. As for day users, they know whos paid and hasn't.

The sort ramps? Buy a smaller boat. The lake isn't so big that they need those tuna skows out there anyway.

I use ponderosa to launch anymore. I'd be willing to use and pay for the fisherman's inn one if it was kept in better shape quality I believe. The drop off and lack of good docks at times combined with lack of good parking when its busy and difficulty turning around all contribute towards this position.

I think people would have to be crazy to pay money to load a boat where the "skiers" own the water. I'm not trying to cause an uproar...but it is amazing how rude people can be around that landing. i'll wait in line an hour at ponderosa, much nicer people.

I don't fish afternoons or weekend out there. This landing has it's benefits so I use it, but you are right. The ski club is a pain in the rear and it would be nice to see them relocated to somewhere else.... like Florida.

      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.

      Now that sounds like a plan.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.
