Where will U be staying ???? There are many boat launches around the lake. I would think U would want to launch and fish close to where U are staying. With a 16' boast U dont want to be going across the lake, even if its calm because the winds can pickup at anytime and its a big lake. So please let us know where U are staying and then we would be able to guide U in the right direction. If U can spare $250 ( I belive thats his rate) I would hire a guide to fish for muskie. There is a local guide that will take U out casting for muskie in anchor bay. Depending on where U live this may be the best chance U have to catch 40-50" fish. The muskie fishing has been great this year. I will check back later to get your location and try to help U out.
