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".

Surface Tension

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.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..

      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.
