sully, thanks for the heads  up, can't afford to damage a lower unit. maybe in the fall with some more rain.

Sportsman's is tough right now with low water.  The channel is less than 20" with several rocks and obstacles in the path that are not easy to see.  I would recommend rowing out to the deeper water.  I found out the hard way and did not have an extra shear pin with me.

depending upon the handicap issue it could be a tough situation.. the water level is so low from lack of rain that the boat reference to the pier/ramp (that is only about 15' long about 7-8' is out of the water ) ) access could be a challenge !   normally there's enough water to have the full boat along side of the pier.. at his point that could be difficult.

the water level for boat launching is greatly reduced and there are big concrete blocks in the water at the end of the launch..  maybe 20"s below the surface that are visible from the pier. bigger boats "could" experience prop damage loading..

As mentioned Sportsman launch on the north side of the lake does have an extended pier out in the water more..  I do not know the depth there however.

I would have to say "no" to that. Yes, there is a short pier at the public launch but it's really not for fishing purposes. Too narrow and too shallow and it's not a T-Shaped pier. I don't know if Sportsman's has a pier--I haven't launched there in years. I think Lower Phantom has a handicapped-accessible fishing pier.

Fished yesterday 7-11 am and ended with 36 gills for 3 people 8-10" and threw back another 10 or so under 8". Fished 1" gulp minnows on ice jigs 2-3' below rocket bobbers over weeds in 6-8' of water. Pink was the hot color.

Does anyone have an idea what depths the big gills are hiding? Been a few times this year and couldn't find enough for a fish fry.

A long cast will put you in 5 feet of water. Its usually pretty scummy. Not worth it in my opinion. Youd probably be better going below the waterford, burlington, or Rochester dams not to far away.
