IS there enough water to run a mile for boat testing

Recommended Posts

swampbuck

Can any one tell me if there is enough open water to be able to run a few boats for testing purposes? We need about a mile to a mile and half to run new booat models?

thanks

I think you got hosed by the cold weather. I think it'll take a 3 for days w/ temps staying above the single digits. then your problem wil be finding an access to launch from. In hastings the Mississippi has the biggest bend in the river. It is usually wide open most of the winter unless you get cold snaps like we have had. Off the top of my head, I would say thats is probably one of your first bets under 3 hours from brainerd. Hopefully someone has some better info for you.

I would get ahold of Evert's Resort in Hager City, WI. If there is open water it would be there.

I heard one time that there is open water year round by redwing because of the nuc plant. Don't know if that is true or not. i would be grateful to know if this is true as well so i could get out yet

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
