Gonna be a long time before this is usable again.

I did. I stopped and was going to get some pics, but surprisingly the ramp still had water on it. The dock was way above the water, but pics wouldn't have shown much, so I didn't bother taking any.

I know it's low but does that mean you can't put in at all?

No way at all that you'll get a boat to float off the trailer. I looked out from the bottom of the ramp and it was shallow as far as I could see.


I guess if you wanted to risk backing into the lake to see if you could get out far enough to float the boat off the trailer, that would be an option. But I personally wouldn't risk it myself.

Thanks for the info, Frank. Knowing the bottom is gravel is good. And ya.. water is definitely getting a bit too cold to be in it without boots  (giggle)

I'm assuming you had to put the entire truck in the water to get the boat to float?

Took my crawdad to Tucker 2 days ago.....water level was still waaay down but fine for my boat.  There were 2 other boats out there......another john  and the other one being a real nice fiberglass boat.....the real deal.   He managed to get in so its doable......I guess cause of the gravel all around the ramp?

Sadly we only managed 1 bass and a bunch of pickerel.  Awful way for me to end the year as its most likely the last day I had enough free time :(
