Are you talking about the Battle Point Public access? If so, then I personally haven't had any poblems. I have been there a couple times recently and have not had a single problem. Just be smart about what you leave in your vehicle etc. There are a lot of higher end houses and new housing developments in the area, which means some watchful eyes. Good luck.

Yeah, its on Battle Point (technically)but the DNR map says Sugar Point Public access. I was the only vehicle there today, so I just went and launched from the Sugar Point Resort. Landing is kind of steep, but the owners were really cool about everything. I called a "certain family owned" resort on the south east side before I decided to launch at sugar point and some crabby dude answered and said its 10 bucks to launch IF they have room. I asked is it busy this time of year and he said no, not till the end of july.....WTH then!! LOL whatever!

I have stayed at Sugar Point Resort for many years and they are always great. It is steep but, your truck will definitely be safe there.

I've used this launch a lot over the years and never had any trouble but you always wonder...

Just take everything out of the truck, as long as there is nothing inside you should have no problems. I do this at every boat landing, the problem is becoming more evident statewide, not just in this area. I even just leave it unlocked now, that way you wont have broken windows when you return. Happened to me last summer, (not on this landing), guess that bag of shorts and t-shirts was pretty important. Now I just take everything out of my vehicle and even leave my doors unlocked and have never had a problem.

Heck, you could go one step further and remove one battery cable (or install a cut-off switch). Least this way your empty and unlocked truck won't be missing.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.

      Here's a couple pictures of one of the 14' boats I redid, a 25hp will be plenty of motor for a 12' boat.  The14' bat in the pictures with the additional weight from the wood would go 26mph with just me in the boat.  As you can se  left the compartment open for the gas tank, so I could monitor the level and so I could breathe better. Send me a message if you have questions.  It's really a fun project to work on these old boats.

      Do you have any pics of the process or finished product by any chance?

      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.
