Ranger boat on Lake Michigan?
2/15/15 @ 11:38 AM
I wanted to try fishing inland, walls, and discharges in my 17' Ranger. It is a typical bass boat low to the water. On a calm day, is this possible or a bad idea. Just casting and jigging. I was thinking about areas between Kenosha to Oak Creek. Any input or advise is appreciated.

Where can I find a public launch and safe parking area to fish in Lake Michigan. I am interested in fishing breakwalls and areas close to shore for smallmouth bass. I do not live in Illinois but visit family there several times a year. I have a 19 ft Skeeter with a 150. Thanks.

You could always give the area between the national street launch, and the south shore launch a try. I have seen bass boats inside the breakwalls before, it might give you a feel for what to expect in a more controlled environment.

My ranger 17' boat is either on the bay or lake, but then again it's a fisherman series, so a little different. But as long as the wind looks good and you check it before your trip and while you're fishing to make sure it's not going to change on you, you should be fine.

Dang, I didn't know ranger made a 17 footer.
As long as the conditions are good, you'll have no issues, just be smart about it. I've been out there dozens of times in 14ft boats without issue...heck, I've had my old 10ft johnboat out there a few times.
