Good Landing?

7 posts in this topic

I am heading for the big pond this weekend and I have a 175 sportfish. I am looking for a landing that hasn't been power loaded so many times. I don't want to tear my trailer apart.. Is it better to pay to land? I would like to be on the west side by Garrison or around there. Anybody know of any hot spots? Thanks..

Red door is good. I thing $10 to launch, worth it.

Where do you plan on fishing or are you neutral there? Also it is going to be hard to find a power launching free access. The lake is full of large boats that can not be loaded any other way. Where ever you decide to go north or south I think the $10 is well worth using a resort launch. They have a stake in keeping it clean and safe.

The Red Door is on the north end. Highway 18 in the town of Wealthwood.

I am gathering info for our yearly Garrison/September trip. We normally launch at Garrison. Yesterday the Garrison launch only had one trailer parked there, and the restroom was fenced off. What problem is created by boats powering on? I am going to guess that holes and rock piles are created? Last year Wealthwood was too low, I would expect worse now. A few weeks ago Vineland had a full parking lot. What is the report there? Thanks for the help.

I launched 175 deep v at garrison on saturday the 25th. It was mighty shallow. We made it though. Power loading creates a deep hole at the end of the slab. If you drop your trailer tires in there you will rip something apart if you can get it out. Or get lucky and nothing bad happens.

      Me either but I have given a few a chance to be! Like the time one just opened our door up on LOW and stepped in at the same time as saying DNR. I did not see a badge and said where's your badge? He had a mini one inside his coat on his shirt!  We all laughed, showed him our lic's and fish and he went on his way!

      Had a wheelhouse rented out of Isle Saturday through Monday AM.  Went several places in search of shiners, they were hard to come by, so had a mix of suckers, rainbows and fatheads.   Was set up in 28' of water. 3 eye's total (2 in the 16" range and a 21.5").  Two came on rattle reel with a rainbow and plain hook, the other came on a bobber - same set-up.  Caught a few perch jigging.     Everything came on a whole minnow.  Nothing on heads, maggots, waxies etc.   Popped a bunch of holes in shallower water and got nothing on tip-ups or hole hopping.  Planned to go east of The Graveyard, but I thought I should get home before the ice storm hit.

      I'm sure it will be pretty slushy this weekend. But it will refreeze next week end. If the forecast is right anyway!

      I'm not really complaining, just sharing my experience.  And i never had any preconceived notion that all CO's were pricks, it just sucks that the one experience I had was far from pleasant.   One of my favorite shows is North Woods Law - the one where they follow the Maine DNR around.  Anyways,  not sure if they're just being nice because of the cameras, but they all seem like stand-up guys and are pretty good communicators.   I've always had respect for those guys and the work that they do.  All I would ask for in return is mutual respect and a simple "have a good day".
