Walley Master, you weren't on the North End launch, you were at the west end launch...the North End Launch is nice if you ignore that someone defecated in the urinal who knows how long ago and is still there, the ramp is so steep one can hardly load a boat....as far as section 11, there is a staging place, stop about 3/4's of the way down, get ready and go down, same with coming out....except you will be behind the other "fisherman" that drive around you and do what you said, get the boat ready at the launch...glad you at least caught some "medium" crappies, guess that means 8-9 inchers...

I 2nd your thoughts, walleye master. I will add that it's dissapointing to see the summer help ride around in thier little brown ford rangers giving tickets and sitting chatting while the bathrooms at north end and the beach at absolutely gross and unusable. How about a coat a paint or bleach or a hose down once a year? I know it doesnt get done because I planted a gum wrapper 5 years ago....guess what-still there!
We arrived at Northside landing (Section 11) at about 11:30. I was surprised to see all the rigs in the parking lot for a Monday. Drifted in a strong easterly wind, even using a drift sock we were moving too fast. Picked up about a dozen medium sized Crappies. I think we would have done better if we had picked up the pattern a little earlier and hadn't had the strong wind. Just a side note; if there is a launch fee being charged, I would think the facility would be in better shape. One pier was under water, but the ramp was good and the other the pier was good but the ramp was all torn up from peoples tires tearing up the asphalt. Also no staging area to prep boat so people did it right on the ramps.
