as far as i know colvil is under construction and the launch is closed. bay point is a good alternitive and you should be able to launch with a 2 wheel drive. i rarely put mine in 4 wheel usually only when the ramp is icy or lots of sand on it.

the launch at bay point is a public lauch. well it depends which way you are going. If You are goings south on 61 you would take a left at perkins follow the road underneth the bridge and ikes is to your left just after the hotel I beleive it is a green building with a couple of shops in there and if you are going north just take a left at perkins. Bay point is not that far from ikes. There is a four way stop at ikes just keep going staight and you can't miss baypoint

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.
