East End Public Access

5 posts in this topic

Let's say a person is looking to launch the boat on the east end in October or November. Where would be a good place to launch? Some of the landings look like they're in areas that would freeze early. And then there's the McKinley access. They close on the last day of September. Does their ramp stay open?

Thanks,

Aaron

McKinley ramp stays open but there may be no dock. Also it's sort of steep so bring a pail of sand for the ice on the ramp. Only other option once Pike Bay and others freeze is Moc Point but then you may have to break ice from there.

The new ramp out here by shamrock is usable too. Should stay open later because it faces north...Probably need sand once it gets cold...

      Down visiting in southern WI with family and our neighbors just watched someone go through ice and drown on a small lake near Lake Geneva. Everyone please be careful when checking ice!

      Has anybody gotten a look at area lakes? Any of them locked up yet ? A buddy said he seen a couple guys a little ways out on Bakers Bay and a couple guys on Eagle. Seems a little crazy to me. There can't be much more than an inch or two. Maybe a little more on Eagle since its shallower.
