  5. Skakedown - I will be out on the lake on Sunday. I would go out on Saturday but with the Buckeyes playing at 12:00 I decided to go out on Sunday.
     
  6. I heard the water was drawn down quite a bit. Any chance of launching my 20' glass deep v (Targa 2000) at any of the ramps, or is it out of the question? Looks like Erie is out agian this weekend and I need to get out.

    Tim, I launched at cheshire with no problems in my glass stratos F/S last weekend, and I think the lake was only supposed to be dropped another foot. Granted, my boat probably doesn't take as much water to float like yours, but I think you'll be fine.
     
  8. Thanks Shake! My boat probably doesn't draft too much more than yours, so I should be fine. I usually launch at Cheshire. Looks like Alum Saturday afternoon/eve.

  9. I was hoping to get out this Saturday but I'm unsure if I will have the boat pieced back together. I need to wire in a new battery for my trolling motor and I have to adjust to 24 volt instead of 12. I guess I shouldn't have any trouble putting my 16' f/b in at Chesire, huh? Are the other ramps tough to put in and out of?

    Cheshire is 100% dockless, but last weekend Galena still had a courtesy dock in. Galena might be the best bet if that dock is still in. If not, take your pick.

    last Thurs. the ramp was still in at the marina. If I get a chance tonight I'll ride by to see it it still is since I only live 1.5m away. Good luck guys hopefully I'll be hunting.
     
  13. If anyone does get a chance to take a look at the lake before this weekend, could you report back on water clarity. I would think that with the water level drawn down and the pretty good downpour we had that alot of those exposed mud banks released quite a bit of silt into the lake. Been pretty windy, doubt if its been able to settle out yet. Thanks. By the way, has Hoover also been drawn down? What's it looking like?
     
  14. Marina area is locked up. Walked the dog around the marina area this AM. They are putting up Xmas lights. Courtesy Dock still in. One of the workers told me that if your car is in the lot after 4:00 PM, it will be towed. Bummer

    say what??? they already locked up hollenback??
     
  16. Yep, they close the marina area every year around 11/1 to get ready for the xmas light show. Bummer, used to catch some nice saugeye right in the marina area this time of year. Still can if you want to hike in.

  18. muskeye, i fished hoover last night(thurs.)did not notice what boaters would deal with but water is down quite a bit more than last year. this will be my 2nd year fishing hoover for the fall winter hog hunt, so i do not know if last year's water mark was normal or this year's?
     
  19. Shake,
    Erie Addict & I will be on AC tomorrow but not till after 4pm. I'll probably give you a holler on your cell when I first get out there just to see how you guys did. Good luck.
