I never get down to Jones Bay landing in the summer, I use the small ramp just North of the Breezy Resort. That bay is getting shallow, but I got my 18' fiberglass off and on the drive on trailer easy enough the other day.

The one I use is up by breezy. Its not he marina but the one north of there. It always seems to be in good condition. The channel coming out of jones always tends to get shallow so you got to take it slow, but you should do fine.

Good luck!!!

The access at jones bay is still good you should have no problem getting a boat in and out of there.

Just heard from a friend who works at Breezy Point that a few cabin owners on some of the shallow bays on Pelican Lake had helicopters carry their boats because some of the bays are so shallow, they are no longer navigable. I wonder what that would cost!

A lot of cabin owners are going to be in for a real treat if they haven't been up here for a while!

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
