Questions on Minnewaska

Recommended Posts

1. Where is the weigh in going to take place? It looks like the State Park is about 3 miles from the lake so we wouldn't be able to do it there.

2. I wasn't sure that I'd be able to make it so I didn't make reservations and now the campground is full. Does anyone know of any other campgrounds in the area?

3. When are we going to start on Saturday (11, or 12?) I will be arriving Saturday morning and want to make sure that we are there in time.

Thanks in advance!

Capt'nJosh

Hey guys! Is there a hotel/motel close by? If not, I would be intersted in a resort also as I don't have any camping reservations made.

I still have my golf ball - I probably should have turned that back in - but just so you know I still have it.

Also - I have a question about the second day start up. Is it reverse order from the first day or lowest weight of fish going first - there was some confusement in that so I wanted to check to be sure.

Now I suppose I should try to find a partner for this event...

Hey guys, thanx for rattling my cage...it's comming up quick isnt it!!
We'll be doing the launch and weigh-in at the access in Starbuck. It is the best one of all our choices.
We'll be having our meeting/drawing at 11 am and start at noon. We will also be doing a break at 4 for an hour, then fish from 5 to 9. Suday will be from 7 am to 11, then from noon to 4.
See you there!!

Clueless, I believe we draw golf balls before every event. You better bring that golf ball to Minnewaska! smile.gif

Big Jim,
I have a campsite reservation at Woodlawn (Woodland?) Resort for Friday and Sat. night. I called in a couple days ago and they had at least 3 campsites still available for that weekend, and it was $20/night. Includes electricity, showers, docking, etc. They also rented boat lifts for a reasonable price...$10?
I couldn't find any other resorts that had openings, everything seeming booked solid (that was semi-close to Starbuck).

CD, Do you have the contact info for that resort? $30 with a lift sounds great!

Is there more than one public access in Starbuck? I could swear I saw an access just off of Hwy 29, near the swimming beach, and two more ramp sites in Hobo park canal/boat slip area. Which launch site will we be meeting at? Thanx

Not the ones in Hobo Park. It's the public Access in Starbuck. As far as I know, you have to pay to launch at Hobo Park. I'll check with Paul to make sure, but I think the regular public access is the one he picked out. I'll email everyone as soon as I check with him which should be tonight or tomarrow.

It's the regular P.A. in Starbuck. It is just off of Highway 29. FYI there are two bait shops within 2 blocks of this access. We haven't figured out what where we are going to do the dinner yet. We were going to do it out at the State Park, but it sounds like not too many of you are camping out there. We will unfortunately probably still have to do it there, but we are working on alternative sites.

Rumor has it CD has a big camping spot right on the lake. We could all eat there! I am sure there is room. Plus, if you eat to much grin.gif and can not drive back to your site, you can stay with CD. I am sure he has lots of room in his camper.ScottS

GullGuide,, there is some room at the lake end of the channel,, We talked to the gent in charge of the park and marina area. He told us they typically have lots of vacant slips for the weekend,, Appeared to be a nice picnic & park area next to ramps ifyou're looking for a place for supper...

I like Hobo Park better. It had two different launch sites/parking sites in the canal and it is a public launch (I never saw a sign to pay any fees, or anything that it was private...tons of people were coming and going all day launching boats), in a canal, that is very protected. Parking 12 boats in the canal at once might be an issue, but a heck of a lot easier than on the Hwy 29 access if you get a stiff easterly wind.
I think we could easily park boats off any public launch area (at 4 p.m. break) at the launch sites....it is relatively shallow and sandy bottom in case we need to beach boats.
I will be out there on the Friday B-4, so I can look at possibilities too...

    • That's awesome!  Many congrats to you both. 
    • A cougar absolutely but a puma? That might be a good time to call SSS outfitters.
    • Maybe if no one was looking
    • It hasn’t been a hay day but I’ve managed a limit of ducks each day plus a couple geese today.   Its always impressive coming out and seeing birds literally by the thousands but they aren’t fools!  Plus, anyone who hunts out here knows, you have to work to be rewarded.  Lots of scouting, lots of decoys, and lots of analyzing.  And then, lots of patients can come in handy.   40 yards out here looks 20 in Minnesota.  Its amazing.
    • Whatever it is, it looks to be over 50 and I’d like to see more. 😉😁
    • Day 1. We got back into my favorite spot around 615am...waited on the trail until sun up, plenty of bear sign around we didn’t want to push it. Legal shooting was about 715. Not very many hunters out here this year. One local told us it’s due to the bears...anyways we sat til about 10 then starting moving ridge to ridge. Didn’t see anything. I may have taken a small nap after lunch for a few mins according to my son. Around 1pm we moved to cliff edge where we could see out around 300 yards and sat until dark. About 430pm mulie does moved past us...probably 20 of them. Then all was quiet until 530 when I thought I heard a cow. My son then says ELK!! 3 cows were 40 yards from us but with the timber he couldn’t get a shot off. They then bolted back to where they came from which was a big clearing. Cole looked at me and said can I go look...I said ya... you crest the top and I will call and see if we can get them to stop. He disappeared from sight and i let off a small cow call and the woods erupted with cows making all kinds of noise and half hearted bugle.  I was waiting with anticipation for what comes next. I hear his rifle bark and then a flash of orange on the cliff above me....huge grin and I nailed hear. He waited for about 5 mins never saw the bull come out, there was 30 cows in the field and he got a dandy. Elk down on day 1 of his first elk trip. We gave each other a huge hug and some high fives! Then the work began. Finally made it back to camp around 10pm. We are worn out and ready to get back out in the morning to find that bull! Stay tuned it’s been everything we could ask for and it’s just beginning! 
    • its interesting thats for sure. puma for sure me still thinks. Leaves are about foot and a half would put the head at about 3 feet or so. Me double thinks cougarumamountainlioncatamountpuma ! 
    • Can-ya-mount a panther in Minnesota? 😉
    • be careful Eyeguy!! I would like to ice fish with you a few time this winter.
    • Well, that was pretty pathetic! Regardless of Annexstad’s health status, Morgan has to be the starter next week! Offense looked so much better with him under center. That’s about the only positive thing I have to say.
