    I have never been here before so I was wondering if there is a usable ramp with dock to get a 19' boat into. I would like to get my boat out and try it before I hit the river.

     Did reasonably well for largemouth and crappie this evening, no bluegills to speak of. Was just fun to get the boat out again and work bugs before I hit the river. The east landing is tricky at best, way to shallow. Back tires were in the water and boat was damn near dry, just the prop in the water. Had to use the west ramp.

    Took my boat out as Wednesday as it was quite warm. I was out there to target some largemouth.

    I had my boat in the water at around 11am and spent about 2 hrs trolling around. Once I had my first bite at around 1pm. I landed about 10 more LM in the next 2 hrs. I missed a couple of bites and had a mid 20'' pike following as well.

    The largest bass was a 3 lbs 8 oz

     Has anybody been out to do any bass fishing this spring? I'm from Alexandria, MN and want to get the boat on some soft water. I used to go to Nelson every spring but haven't in 3+ years. Any info on the bite would help!
