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.

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner

      Never heard of that in all my years! They look delicious! I take my dad to Rainy Lake ever June for his birthday and do a nice shore lunch. Walleye wings will be on the menu this year! Thanks for the thread!

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?
    • Bigfatbert
      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T
