Some friends are bringing there boat over for the jobbie nooner party and want to launch as close as possible to the island to avoid crossing the lake in a small craft. (ski boat) What launch and route do you all think is the best choice?
There is a launch in Little Muscamoot near Browns but it is a sand launch.......I doubt you will have any fun with a ski boat. I would suggest putting in at either Algonac, The North Channel Access, or Metro. Just go early and you should be fine.
The DNR ramp in Algonac is the best one, just cut over to the Middle Channel, I used that ramp a lot when I ran my Hydrostream. Do note there is a sand bar across the front of the ramp where it gets deeper before getting shallow and you need to keep the motor up and idle out quite a ways.
You beat me to it Wiz!! Walkers is definately the closest. I was by the launch by Browns on Saturday, lot of people there. If you go through little muscamoot STAY TO THE LEFT when you exit the cut into the bay. There is a lone cottage on an island on the right with weeds ahead. Cut left ONLY. I hit bottom in my dinghy on the right side so even a jet boat probably wouldn't make it. My overall suggestion... go under the bridge, back by Brown's down the middle channel off to gull.
