Early this spring while launching my boat some guys told me about a huge boulder in front of Mac & Ray's that lies just below the water surface. I fish in that area a lot and have always been nervous that I would hit it.

Last weekend that boulder was about 1 foot above the water. I took the opportunity to slowly pull up to it and hit a way point and mark it as a hazard. Next Spring I'll know EXACTLY where it is.

I think this weeknd I'll cruise around a little and see if there any other hazards that I can mark. I'll post the actual way point on this thread later when I get home so you can all enter it as a hazard into your GPS.

Maybe if some of you have coordinates of known hazards you can share them too.

Marke,

You may have to wait a few years for that boulder to get back under....lets hope it IS under next spring.

Does everyone know about the submerged sea wall just North of the Clinton River?

Is that what is down there? I quit coming out that side of the launch after sandblasting the paint off the prop, it is just too shallow coming out of there.

If you hit the wall, it wouldn't sandblast your anything. It would take your lower unit and keep it...

Just don't go to the left of the point under power...

Sorry Dan must have read funny. I was referring to the depth of the water when you come out on that side of the launch not striking the wall. I've had my share of prop changes not to mention the loss of a lower unit to know what the ramifications are from striking things harder than aluminum.

There are worse things than that.Might not have anyplace to launch your boat.Here in Windsor there is the city ramp & nothing else.Some ramps have 1ft of water if that.Mitchells bay is near useless.Better stay in the channels also.Next year could be very bad if we don't get a lot of snow up north.I already bounced my engine off a ramp.

Wasn't picking on you fish tremble. Just a note for others not to go left. I rarely go out that way because I have enough problems keeping whole motors on my boat!!!

Hey guys,

I wrecked a prop this summer in about 4 feet of water east of the mouth of the Salt River. I checked my hot spots map and the hazard is charted, but I'd love to have the GPS coordinates (I didn't have a GPS at the time of the wreck)

Any help?

I just checked the Charts Anywhere feature on the home page and noticed the obstrucction you are talking about. Without zooming right in on it it got the following coordinates:

42^ 38.95" N
82^ 46.925"W

Try the feature yourself and maybe you can pinpoint it better.
