Which resort to launch from on SE side?

9 posts in this topic

Planning on going up to the pond this weekend and would like some ideas for launching and if shallow rock piles are the way to go. Any input will be appreciated.

With the water as low as it is... I have been most please with Sunsetbay Appledorns.. They hook a tractor up to your trailer and put the boat in for you.. you can then call ahead when you are ready to come back in and they will pull you back out... pretty darn slick!

Thats who I was kinda thinking. I've been through these guys for ice fishing and they are top notch. The only problem is that we have a guy who just got out of the hospital and might not be able to climb UP into the boat. Paul if you read this is there anything to park the boat next to at the resort so he could step down into it?

Thanks Deitz!! smile.gif

They have a dock that extends into the water. Go on their website, look at photos and you should see it.

Are they done with liberty yet? Looks like a nice access.

Liberty is done but the DNR hasn't, nor do they plan to dredge the entrance into the lake.

So does that make it pretty unaccessible to large boats?

      I wondered if I had stepped thru a time warp and  was back in 1997............really fun day today about 5.5 miles off the south shore. LOTS of action and some nice fish. Two overs and 2 nice keepers at 17" with 6 very nice saugers to fill the bucket, plus 1 sumo perch. Quite a few littles but the action from 10 to 2:30 was much like it used to be. Also several tullibees and they were the biggest I've seen here in a while. Zero fish jigging but glow pink Geminis and glow red Northland forage things were working very well. Wow, is that snow hard.......if it rains at all on Saturday, the snowpack will be like cement.   Good luck.

      Fished Pike Bay this afternoon and did ok, caught 3 walters and a ton of perch that we sorted through, ended up with a half a dozen solid keepers. Didn't move, set up in 19' and stayed there all day. Lots of folks out there tonight enjoying this beautiful weather.

      The real problem with jerky is it just does not last long? I try to store it to make it last longer and the next thing I know it's gone!  Who's eating it! My wife doesn't like it and I'm the only other one home.  Aliens or Big Foot?

      I agree with Rick.    I would not venture to any of the lakes with a current with a wheeler without knowing how the ice forms in these areas.   koetter, zumwalles, and Krays especially.   Plus the bridges or channels that connect them are usually not passable.      I have made it to the 2 cat holes in koetter but the entrance from cedar island is very dangerous.   You can get there from the winter access on cedar island.  about a 2-3 mile drive by wheeler.  (do not go near the bridge at the end of koetter   Don
