Near the Mouth of the Mamee River, Heading downstream!
Yep! Almost out to the lake, I messed up and didn't have my camera on burst mode tho, oh well. Got a couple good ones.


RWS where do you spend most of your time in the area?

Any time my friend!

Is it worth it to come down to Toledo for a weekend to boat the river and the toldeo boardwalk area?

Is there anywhere to stay on the boat?

What about wood tick- How hard is that to navigate too?

The Docks are cool, nothing spectacular but a cool place to stop at.

Good question! There is a new marina downtown that is awesome but not in the greatest part of town. Supposedly they have security up there, I can't remember if they have gates or not

Can be, we did see somebody up on a dredge shoal last weekend but I think it was the guys first time out on the boat period. Its not too bad if you have some idea where you are going or a chartplotter with low-water datum, we could draw you a map.

Although I did get warned about cutting in from the channel on another site, but so far I haven't had a problem with it.

Everything brent said was about right. Except thanks for telling me about the WARNING! Was that after we went thru there Sunday?
the Docks are fun place to eat and sit around and drink for the evening or day. Every now and then they will have boat and car and bike shows. You could also spend the night at one of the many Yacht Clubs on the river also.

Mosi sent me a pm Monday over on GLO saying I was crazy to cut in from the channel. But I read deeper water going in that way than the cut-through, and its not like I just cutover wherever, I only do/did it in one specific spot. I've heard from other people that they cut in right between those cans too (36 and 38) to head to the beach.

He said most people stay between the island and the dredge shoals until they get out by Turtle but if you look at the charts (chart 14847, 2005 edition, corrected 5/31/2007) its just as shallow out there so who knows, you can go shallow anywhere. Not that I discount his advice, he has probably been running around out there longer than I have been alive...

Obviously we made it from the channel back to the island a couple times and I'm confident in the route, would I stray off my plot line? Hell no.

I was seeing 7 and 8 ft all the way thru there. I think even if the wind was blowing it wouldn't be a problem. Coming thru the cut it is like 3 to 4 and then around the corner all the way to wood tick it is 4 to 6 most times. There is a way to the channel from Ottawa River because you see all those big cruisers going that way and also my first wifes dad used to go that way all the time, but that was so long ago I don't know what he used to line up to head out there.

Ken the docks are right down town and they are fun to hang out at, there are 6 or so resturants and a most have outside eating and bar areas. There also is a bar down river called the Six Packs but it is a pain to get to and alot of steps to climb to get up there. Plus the summer Reggatta season is starting next weekend and they are always fun to goto. We are planning on going to TSC's Friday night or Saturdy early afternoon if you want to make the trip down. All the clubs are up and down the river so wind isn't a problem. Also if you go the way most people do to Wood Tick it really isn't hard and shouldn't be a problem at all.

And the most important thing is all these places on the river have BUD LIGHT!

Sunsation98 - I think we are going to try to make it up to LSC some weekend, my couz wants to take his big boat up and Dan and I talked about trailering up. We'll have to get something figured out for some weekend.
