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.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
