Bloomington boat launch

Recommended Posts

Flaco651

I just got back from Los Angeles yesterday and I'm trying to get out in the 'Sota tonight. As far as I know the shakopee launch is still under construction and was wondering how to get to the launch under the 35W bridge. My buddy is kinda scared about the barge traffic that runs through the Blackdog area. How far upstream toward Shakopee would we have to travel to get away from the barges? I would like to just head down to Jordan, but my buddy doesn't sound up to it for a thursday night mission. I haven't been out catfishing in about 2 weeks and need to wet a line tonight!

Barges go up a little ways from 35w... leave your boat lights on and use common sense and the barges wont be an issue.

NO change at the Shakopee launch mad.gif

Couldn't they coordinate these construction projects a bit better.

I read recently that the geniuses in Belle Plaine keep hitting Artesians when trying to set the pillars for the bridge. Now it sounds like spring or even summer of next year. crazy.gif

Heard Wednesday night that they might have it done October 1st. MNDOT gave them some incentive to quit whining and get going on it. We'll see.......

Take the first exit off 35 after you cross the river heading north and go east to the stop sign. Turn right and drive down to the river. You can't miss it....

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.
