Default New Albin/ Lansing





Getting ready to make a trip over there next weekend. Seeing what boat ramps are open. Last I read the New Albany was closed. It's been a couple of years since I have been over there. Been itching to get back there. Any information would be nice. Thanks guys

Ran up Minnesota slough last Saturday and there were outfits in the New Albin landing. River levels look to be the same as last weekend so you should be good to go.

if you hunt a boat blind, keep in mind there's little cover this year. high water knocked everything down

Hunted there last weekend. Water level was at ~10 (currently around 9.5) and ramps on both sides of the river were open around Lansing. Had to put miles on to find the birds; good numbers but they were very difficult to finish. Get the Angry Chicken pizza from the safe house!

We plan on making blinds or using layout blinds. The boat we going to use doesn't have a blind on it. Thanks for the info guys. Kept it coming we'll be heading over next Friday morning so we can scout Friday day. Hopefully we can get on them. Thanks again guys.
