EP Lakes, Riley/Lotus

5 posts in this topic

How are the ramps on these lakes? The options are a 20' new heavy Skeeter or a old 14' Lund, both towed by 4x4 so that isnt a problem.

I've never launched at Lotus so I can't speak to that, but you can get your skeeter in at Riley. Our Fire Dept launches a 20' Lake Assualt on the Riley launch. You'll be fine there.

Both seem to be pretty good but I've seen some funny things from the wakeboard dudes trying to load their boats :-)

The Lotus launch is pretty nice you can get your 20' in no problem, I was there a week ago or so and the water was low so that made it tricky w/ my 2x2... also there is a dock on lotus where as riley doesn't have one...

We were out on Riley on Saturday evening. Launch was fine, they did have a dock. Fishing was OK, not great. Handful of bass, 1 decent pike, 1 keeper walleye (released) and a crappie.

Great lake, great weather, nice night.

      I think with the current forecast there will be ice fishermen/women on URL by the 20th. It'll be bitterly cold, which is excellent, but the snow puts a hamper on things...

      all good advice, but with first ice I will avoid going out in the dark until the ice is a thicker. Ice is never safe, play it smart. looking forward to getting out soon

      I also use braid for my decoys and suckers  I think I even have a steel leader on one of them and never had problem with them spooking,  I built a wood floor for my but and use PVC poles to hand my decoys, GoPro, spinner etc works great and can slide them out of the way when not in use.

      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.
