Went out early morning. Lots of clouds and rain expected. Launched for the first time in years at Boxhorn since I was planning on fishing the east side of the lake and wanted to be close to 'home base' if an electrical storm came up. More northerns than bass. Fish active until front passed by and rains came, but got a couple good hours in. Biggest Northern was 32". Donned rain gear but friend along had radar on his phone and major storm nearing from SW. Off and home before storm hit.
Young eagle very active along east shore. A real beauty in flight and dives toward lake. Good to see guide and avid fisherman JL on the shore.
One event occurred, leading to a question. I paid the $7 launch fee. I noticed a bigger fishing boat stop a ways off the pier and make a phone call. Minutes later, moving quickly, a car and empty trailer pulled up. The boater and car driver picked up the boat and left hurriedly. These are facts, as is the fact that I have no idea if the boater paid any fee. Is the fee at Box Horn a fee for parking, or parking with a launch, or only a launch fee? IE If no vehicle is parked there, then the 'drop-off-a-boat-and-go' is free?
