Is anyone aware of changes at the municipal launch this year? Is the parking fee staying the same? Can't remember if it was $7 or $10 last year. Are they doing any maintenance or repair projects on the parking lot or docks?

What about the channel? Is there a site that addresses any planned dredging this season?

12 hours to late Kroppe , I was just in Frankfort yesterday. There were 6-10 boats out front and in the harbor, perhaps one of them can report.

Frankfort city launch is $10/day. A yearly pass is $60 for non resident.

They drench the channel mouth for the first time in many years in 2019. Use to be a regular occurrence when the ferries were operating but that stopped in the early 80’s. Only limit info from last year, but liked it better before they drenched as fish would be stilling either right on top waiting for the bait as they hit the up welling where it went from 30’ to 22’ right between the pier heads or sometimes sitting on the deep side ready to ambush bait moving off the self.

With the water receding some, there should be no issues with any of the ramps this season.

Thanks @mincmi some of the docks required an Olympic long jump last year to avoid wet feet, because of the high water.

Shakedown cruise went pretty well tonight. The new ulterra performed flawlessly and once we found the trout it was quick going.

There is only dock open at the moment as they are working on rest of the ramps.
