Launched at Hunters' Nest.  First trip to BM in a few weeks.  WEEDS!  I have never seen the lake so clogged with so many types.  Had a difficult time getting from point A to point B.  Used the trolling motor raised to the surface to get around.    Ended up fishing surface lures around some of the large weed growths.  Early morning productive--a dozen bass, largest a tad over 18".  As soon as sun up above the trees, you could see bottom clearly, and fish shut down.  Only a foot deep in many spots.  Lots of rain is welcome.

Happy Birthday to Hunter's Nest German shepherd--Baron is 13 today.

No, some require a fee for any watercraft,  depends on who runs the launch.

Snorkel-

Regarding the carry in kayaks not requiring a launch fee...is that the case at all boat launches?

eze, yes if you carry on, no fee.

Are you talking about Little Muskego?  they have a parking fee for all vehicles there(idle Isle), there is no parking fee at Boxhorn.

No one has every checked me for a receipt stub at Boxhorn without a trailer.   

If you trailer your Kayak or canoe and back it into the water then the fee applies.  If you have a utility trailer for your yak or a dedicated kayak trailer with crossbars you also don't have to pay a fee as long as you don't back it in the water, however you have to get a letter from the city of Muskego to display in the window so they know you are not backing in.

what the city told me was that if the tires of your Kayak trailer touch the concrete on the launch you have to pay the fee.  So if you back in but don't actually go in the water you have to pay the fee, if you pull in a parking spot (with a kayak trailer) and then carry or cart the yak to the water no fee but you need that letter displayed in the window.  I had to send them a picture of my Kayak Trailer so they knew it had cross bars and was not the type that backs into the water.

Really? Carry in kayaks dont have to pay the launch fee? Anyone done it? They always check my truck for a pay stub every time I'm there even if I dont have a trailer.

I always use the north side of launch for my Kayak as it's not concrete and does not scratch up the bottom of the yak.

you do not have to pay the launch fee for carried on kayaks..

and using the north side of the launch doesn't inhibit trailered boat launchers .

Im with everyone else on topwater. Its an awesome lake for frogs. Also, I do very good with a texas rigged stick bait. Natural colors work good but I love black and blue on this lake. Hope that helps. Good luck out there
