Hamilton/south end lake o boat launches?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I had plan to boat out of Humber bay boat launch this weekend but the forecast has taken an absolute turn for the worst. Lake O now has a gale warning out with waves building up to 2 meters tomorrow. 

Plan B looks like launching somewhere out of the south end of the lake. I know that the launches down there close up for the winter. Can anyone guide me to an open launch somewhere between Burlington and Niagara Falls?

 

let me know what you guys have got! Thanks!

Dalhousie, Forans, etc etc.  Lots of them are open.   Bring your planner boards!

I'm with OI, Usually when lake O is blown lake Erie is ideal, and vise versa, Maitland is a great spot for walleye too.

Southern shore of Lake O will fish, problem is that wind is going to push any warm water out.  Fish will scatter.   I'm going to give it a few more weeks before I pull the boat down there for some fun.

After looking at the wind forecast today, I don't think I'd be out in a boat anywhere.

50 Pt. is open as of yesterday but launch fee is $24.00.

Launch at Forans 2 weeks ago was free, not sure now. Sign there says $15.00.

Was out there yesterday from 9 am. to 4 pm. Nada. Stayed in close fishing the shore 10 to 15 FOW.

Water was to murky and very windy from the south. I trolled from 50 to just passed Grimsby and almost back, had enough.

If that was you that launched out of Forans on Saturday morning then that was me in the bass boat ripping around there...

The wind was absolutely nuts ripping from the south. I went out maybe 500 yards off shore to test the boat out and there was already a 3 foot chop rolling. Was great for testing out the new boat in though!. 

A warning to anyone launching out of Forans, a sand bar has formed at the entrance to the marina, water wasnt much more than a foot deep. I ended up bumping the sand with my outboard in a bass boat. If you have a big draft you could end up stuck on the hump there.

Hey AKRI, 

Where abouts do you usually launch to fish humber bay? I recently moved to a condo at lake shore/park lawn area and am looking to get my boat out there in the next couple weeks. 

I've had success fishing lakers and browns in the stretch between Grimsby and St Catherines but hoping I can stay closer to home and find them near the mouth of humber/credit/bronte.

Feel free to PM me if easier. 

Thanks,

FF17

I launched at 50 as they opened the launch early this year was great because I have a pass there.

Like you say it was very windy so I stayed in close.

      I'm currently on week 2 of my extended summer vacation and have been hard on getting some cabin building done. First thing needed was a dry, shady and bug free zone to chillax in when the working was done.   Threw up this temporary shack in a weekend.   Now onto the cabin building segment. Took a lot longer than expected to layout the foundation. Drilled 1/4" holes in the granite to drop my nails into to run my string lines.   Then it was time to dri

      Hey folks, Renting a cottage on big gull this summer and had a question..    I know it has walleye in it and the usual players, but does it have a sizable musky population? The GF's father is wanting to target them.   We will be staying close to the town of Arden at Hyatts resort (former co-worker owns the place)    Any tips or tactics for fishing this body of water are appreciated!   G.
