If I wanted to get to the "pump house" or "the pump" with my 16' boat, which would be the best boat landing? Rices, Knife river or some other one?

I was contemplating dropping the boat in at the knife river landing but not sure of there is one closer to Duluth thats near the "pump".

Around 20 years ago they was a proposal to put a safe harbor in at Brighton Beach. Wouldn't that have been nice.

As of now Rice's Point is the closest access.

Wade, I'll be out there this weekend with my 16' boat. I am out there most weekends, and never look back on why i did it. some say your crazy in a 16' boat..i don't think i am.

Also, yes, Rices is the best launch point around.

Make sure you have atleast 1 drift sock. you may need more than that depending on how slow your can go. (unless your going to try jigging as you posted earlier)...then you just need long...long....long rope with a heavy anchor!

Also, yes, Rice's is the best launch spot around.

If your going out, and wanna follow someone, let me know. I can cruise about 26-28 MPH with my boat and a 50HP Merc.

      Tried my luck on Lory lake for some pan fish. trying to catch a meal. didn’t find any sunfish over 7” and a few 9” crappies. Not what I was expecting hoping for a little better. Might have to try a littler bigger lake for some better results.

      @cherokee muskie-mike is spot on the dog food... When I use to camp at hoodoo point campgrounds I tend to use nightcrawlers if I have any to spare (in a minnow trap). Caught too many rusties while fishing.

      6/22/18     West Metro Water temp is in the 70's and sunfish are up on the beds. Look for harder bottom areas inside of or adjacent to softer bottom with weeds. The smaller females will be staging over the weeds--you may see them boiling--and the big bulls will be guarding the nests (beds) on the firmer bottom. Got my son and Dad out to catch a bunch this morning.  Ultralight 7' spinning rods/reels with four pound test Berkley Nanofil works great to cast to these bedding fish from a distance and get a good hook set. We use a 1/16 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig tipped with a 1" to 1.5" soft plastic (minnow, grub, tube, etc.) under a slip float to adjust for beds at different depths. Usually you will be targeting 2-8 feet of water, depending on water clarity. Take care not to keep everything you catch. It is fine to keep a fresh meal once in a while--sunfish is awfully tasty--but put plenty of fish, including the biggest bulls, back. Needed to keep the natural cycle of reproduction going. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Thanks everyone for the feedback. I was beginning to think I lost my touch. Took a beating this winter, but hopefully it will come back again. Also would like to see some more restrictions on the crappies. Time to start checking the deeper weed beds I guess. I know the water temps have been fluctuating a lot this spring and maybe they skipped the spawn.
