there was a smaller bog blocking the ramp when I got tere this AM.. pushed it back far enough w/boat/trailer to get the boat in  then moved it out w/boat.... the south side ofthe ramp for NOW is open..

water is very dirty and not much visblility after about 6"s 44*s...  and very high.

the channel to Bass Bay is wide open.. Much better water clarity there but the water is cold 42*s as well.

NO bites....  plastic and waxies..  today

If the bogs are too big too push, a handsaw can work wonders......Just depends how anxious you are :)

I have been able to push some bogs out of the way with my boat.. Other times I have gotten stuck on top of them trying to go Dukes of Hazard style over the top of them.

I have to ask a question, how do they clear the channels when the floating bogs block them ?

I always launch at Hunters Nest with a yearly pass. Getting sort of anxious to get the boat on the water.

Took a ride to Boxhorn.  Small bogs blocking the center and right part of the launch.  Left side is open enough that a boat/trailer could launch.  No pier in as of 3/25.

Hunter's Nest has a large bog IN the channel; it looks to be about 30 yards in from the lake opening.  Cant tell how long it is.   Water is a bit high.  Since the blockage is within the channel, it may take a boat or two to work to get it open.  When anyone learns anything about the opening of this channel, please post.

Did not check out the other launch SE of Hunter's Nest.  A friend said it was blocked as well at the mouth.

Anyone know if the launch at Durham is clear? I know bogs tend to block it during the spring, just wanted to be sure before I put the boat in


Thanks

Anyone looking to improve panfish growth and size structure please read up on it and implement the practices of the pros... 

here are a few good links to start!

Does any one know if the lake is clear of ice yet? I'm itching to take the boat out and am wondering if it's do-able on Big Muskego. Thanks for any information.
