A little slow to respond to the launch question, but as long as there aren't any cars in the handicap spots, I have enough room to do a U-turn at the bottom of the hill with the Silverado and 20ish' trailer. Be careful of the bridge when you go under. It sneaks down on you!

F3 sent you a PM - it's an easy launch and yes pulling in and backing down is the best way to approach.
Going to try heading out here this afternoon. Never fished here, and to be honest it's been a bad season for me. Not asking anyone to hand me anything, but if you have a rough idea of current working presentations for panfish/walleye, it would be appreciated. My normal go to is slip bobber with crawler/leech, or sometimes slow jigging live bait for bottom walleyes. My assumption is they'll be in that 15-25 FOW range. Also am I seeing correctly that you pull in and back all the way down to the launch, right? It's a long narrow launch it seems. :)
I verified with a police officer for the town of summit that it is private property. However, the right-of-way from the center of road gives you legal access.
Anyone have insight into multiple persons any day of the week accessing "Ganja Bay" from the overflow parking area west of the launch? Legal or not?
Signs have always been posted but looks like it's pretty free flowing this summer. Kayaks, swimmers, float tubers, etc. Can that behavior be duplicated during ice season? Park in Overflow and access Upper ice?
Well that certainly would explain the lack of decorum perceived on my part, Night Eyes.
Stupid law IMO, but as long as it's there I'll capitalize on it when I can. Speaking of capitalizing, I'm starting to like it when another fishing boat anchors right near me, and sometimes I'll anchor near others in well known spots. Keeps the water skiers at bay.
Problem is, people keep trying to raft up to us and swim.
Slow no-wake on Sundays and holidays from noon to 3 is only on upper.
Went out on lower today before noon for the noon to three slow no wake on Sunday's, but the slow no wake part was a no go. It's funny, there were fewer skiers and jet skis at 11:49 than there were at 12:30. The cop boat was out yesterday? Go figure.
Anchored in 15' and casting deeper. Missed two strikes right off. Only had whatever on for a second or two. Then I had a don't need to measure sized walleye about 15' from the boat and right on the surface when the hook came out. That sucker rushed the pull and I just did not reel fast enough. I got a good look at it and it swam away. Next I caught about a 14" eye and a 28" northern, a couple bluegills. All released.
Lots of floating weeds on the surface stirred up everywhere getting hung up every other cast. Lots of traffic despite the slow no wake ordinance. But there are some fish out there. Got scared off by rain at about 1:00
I'll let you know if I ever decide to brave it again!
Nice video, 262 Fishing. Nice boat too. I live right down the road from that launch. Take me with you sometime and I'll put you on the pike. You need the ballast anyhow.
