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.

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
