Wabasha Launch Question


Recommended Posts

Some time ago I heard that major improvements were planned for the launch in Wabasha. Were these improvements ever made. What does it cost to launch from there, it used to cost over 5 or 6 bucks when the city owned it.

Law.... I'm not positive of the use status, but they did a real nice revamping late last year. The winter had them on hold and they may have it completed by now.

As for the dockage fee, I could not tell you.

Launch is open, they still need to put on one more lift of blacktop, but it is very usable, and very nice. Last year the city charged $8. There is no fee now.

Be careful at Wilcox landing (Robinson Lake) Last year we had a rash of break-ins while people were out fishing! Most of the time it was during the week when very few rigs were around. Makes me think it was local kids. Just a heads up.

Do you think that by making the ramp free it's going to be a lot busier? It was sometimes very busy when it was $8.00. I wonder if the neighborhood is going to feel an impact.

You also made a very good point about Wilcox. That ramp and parking area is pretty remote. Thanks for the heads up Blackduck!

As far as the ramp being busy, you are right, it was busy at $8. I don't see it changing that much since you can only fit so many rigs in the lot. I bet neighbors will start to take notice if people start parking up and down all the streets. I have never had a problem during the week, and on the weekends I would be out by 0600 and return sometime in the afternoon usually, so I always got a pretty good parking spot. The pleasure boaters don't usually show up until after 1000 anyway. It might get pretty interesting this summer, I guess we will just have to wait and see.

One more side note about the new ramp. I was pulling my boat out last week. (17' with 75hp tiller) If you are standing looking at the launch I was at the one on the right, and when I powered up onto my bunk trailer my motor hit bottom, and it was river rock, not sand. I wouldn't have expected that with all the bass boats powering up on trailers. I haven't tried any of the others yet, so be mindful of that when pulling boats out.

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.

      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.

      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
