Hey Everyone, we're trying to assess potential damage to our launch ramps, so we spent some time visiting the ones south of the bridge the other day. For everyone's info, in case you're wondering for this weekend, here are shots of our facilities on the south lake.
It appears there are only two viable options out there: the south ramp at Larabee's and Chipman's Point. McCuen's Slang is a maybe. If you choose to go out, be careful. There is alot of floating debris, and other stuff just under the surface you can't see. Go slow and wear your PFD's.

Last night I talked a buddy out of a planned 3 day trip to Ti. I forwarded him these pictures. The subject line was "Decision Reinforcement." Man. What a mess. That is cancellation #2. One of these days we will make it. Bob

thanks so much for those incredible pictures! Even though I live in Rutland I had no idea it was that bad on LC just west of me...I have been shore fishing just a week and a half ago at some of those locations and am amazed at the water levels. we wait all winter for it to warm up and now there is too much water to launch the boat.

We can try again in a couple weeks Bob, has to settle down by then. I new we were in trouble last fall when the water levels in October/November were where they usually are in the spring time. I had no idea it would be this crazy but the writing was on on the wall water levels would be very high. Remember when the water came up 3-4 ft over a couple days the first week of October? I was up there and watched it instead of getting out to practice before Brock's year end tournament.
We doing that outing again this year? That was fun even if we didn't do so hot. They like our money.... Let's touch base later in the year. I have another outing to Montauk around then too but that should be mid week.
Thanks for the photos and update unbelievable been home with the wife the last week she had a operation takeing care of her maybe get out in a week.I was wondering can you launch at MCCUEN"S SLANG if the water doesn't get higher?
