Launching from the Road

3 posts in this topic

I've got one and love it. I'm planning a little trip and have been trying to do a little map scouting just to make the best use of my time.

I've noticed that some lake show boat launches. I've also noticed that most of the smaller lakes/marshes do not show boat launches on the map. If I find a lake that I like that has a road that goes right next to it, can I go ahead and launch my boat and park right there on the side of the road? Do some lakes have launches that aren't on the map?

I don't want to get yelled at by the local residents but would assume that this is alright to do. Has anyone done this and is it that big of a deal? Thanks.

Asked that question of a warden on opener. He was very vague and said it depended on if it was a township or county road. I was always under the impression if the water abutted the road right of way it was legal. If I were you I would call the dnr main office to find out for sure.

Best is to find the property owner and ask. Most people will help you out. However, if you want to go the road route, the key is road right of way which does vary between state, county, and township roads. If it indeed does abut, then you can legally float it. Parking is another issue though, as well as the ground under the water.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
