Hunter's Nest channel is completely socked in by a big bog. Nothing will be getting through there for a while. The water is as high as I've seen it all year. As it lowers over the next week that bog will get more and more stuck. The only hope is that if today's high winds change direction.

I told the owner, but he didn't show much concern. He mumbled something about it'll be a while because he doesn't have a boat that can push it.

The water is not as high as you would think. maybe an inch or two at the most from what I recall.

With all the rain the water lever should be up nicely on BM.

I have not fished it in two months because I have been river fishing for smallmouth instead :-)

Have to get out there again.  Have not caught many pike in the rivers.

Dropped in @ Big M yesterday, 6 Bass and 1 pike midday on topwater. The photo attached is on the big lake...acres and acres of black dead sludge like weedgrowth. Its attached to the lake bottom, water is fairly clear around it but aesthetically its a total bummer.

Good luck to all the goose hunters next weekend.

I have a 14' boat with a 20 hp  and have used this launch over 30 times this season.  Felt a bump on one trip out.  Otherwise, no problems in or out.  Stay in the center and the weeds are no problem either.  I feel that the channel makes for a quiet, easy launch on a windy day.  And if I am going to Bass Bay, this launch is by far the best to use.

I've always launched at Hunters Nest with a 16 and 40 HP.

There may be a log at the end of the channel, every once in a while I will feel a bump with the motor if I forget to trim it up a bit, but never any issues.

In my opinion, Hunter's Nest is the best launch, but everyone has an opinion... Yes, it's very shallow and very weedy, especially this time of year. It can quickly get frustrating if you get stuck in the weeds (lures or motor).
