boat landings

Recommended Posts

liphooked

are the boat landings at Maiden Rock and/or Bay City good to use? I haven't used them before but am looking to fish Lake Pepin within the next week.

what are the water temps and water level like? has the river come up since end of Sept?

liphooked The boat ramp in maiden rock is very shallow maybe for a small fishing boat. Bay city I don't know much about that ramp. There is a small boat concrete boat ramp in stockholm below maiden rock also iffy no dock. If you are going to put in I would suggest Pepin Wi on the south side of Lake Pepin (if you are fishing mid lake to the south) and Red wing if fishing mid lake and north. The one in Pepin is by the pickle factory bar restraunt very nice with a dock also a fish cleaning room free for use. Their is a marina by there also they charge. The free ramp is south of the restraunt. You might find some crappies around the pepin marina also. A good ramp in red wing is collville park (sp?) on the south side of town off of hwy 61.

hope this helps

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
