Brad Emmanuel and friends set up a stage on a sandbar. There were hundreds on people there. If you launch at Beans and just follow the River to Dubay, you couldn’t miss it
Hey Dude, could you explain to us what Brad in Sand is? I assume it a pontoon party place but not sure.. and where is it? Also had to comment on your great “handle” . Kinda surprised no one was offended!
The two launches that are close to the sand bar are Beans Eddy and the one on Seagull Lane. Both would work for a pontoon, but expect the lots to be very full so get there early and expect a crowd. Also, make sure to have life jackets and a sober driver for the boat. They were checking as many boats as they could that were leaving there last year. If you've never been to Brad on the Sand it's a blast. Have fun.
Family wants to go. Is there a different launch that you would recommend? I assume Beans has a concrete ramp?
if the river as at decent levels, which I believe it is, should be fine, must be headed to brad on the sand this weekend lol
Am I able to launch and pull out a pontoon boat at Bean's Eddy relatively easy?
Lithoman, I've complained to Johnson Outdoors several times about their Lakemaster chips. When I had all Lowrance units on my boat, with Navionics chips, they showed contour lines in every river and tributary that fed the lakes I fish. With Lakemaster they end where the tributary meets the lake. Never got any satisfactory answers from them but when you own Humminbird, Minnkota and Lakemaster I guess they can do what they want. Navionics are far superior.
My LakeMaster chip will not work in this stretch of the river. It shows contour lines at Dubay and BEP when I zoom out, but it shows solid red from Mosinee dam down to Dubay.
Any thoughts on this?
How are the water levels? Do you still have to back off the end of the ramp to launch? Hows the bite been? Thanks for any info.
FYI they are getting bigger boats in at Beans by backing off the ramp about halfway down onto the sand of the north side of the ramp. Don't know if they are catching much though..
