Use the launch on the NW side of the lake.

Why that one as opposed to others?

Deeper, you won't have to swamp your truck to launch. smile.gif

North side is a DNR access. East access is a City of Buffalo access and it is way too shallow right now. The County access on the south side is an unknown for me, since I live on the north side - someone else want to comment.

The south one is earthen I think. It is by the channel to either mink or deer(can't keep them straight) which ever one is the most eastern.

I don't mind the city park launch as long as its not to shallow.

The DNR launch you have to drive across the street to park.

I always liked the southeast launch 'cause if there's room, and you don't mind getting yer legs wet, you can launch on the beach and then pull yer rig forward a touch and there it is when you get back; no "holding pattern". I didn't like the city launch, 'cause that was often the amateur hour, or nasty-yelling-at-yer-neighbors ramp. The northwest ramp is a good one, but there is the issue of parking across the hwy and schlepping yer stuff across.

The east ramp is ok, ONLY, if you have a small boat. Or you need to wash out the floor matts in your truck. If guys think walking across the street is a far? Check out the ramp off kings road going to minnetonka. Its only 200 yards parking lot to ramp, with a steep hill. The northwest access is the best on Buffalo lake. The south ramp does have a concrete slab but some people like playing in the water.

I prefer to float the boat, walk on a dry dock, step into my boat to launch. When I load up its drive boat on trailor. Step from boat to dock, then get into my truck and pull out then drain boat and finish tying down.

      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.
