At Aurora it isnt launching it is landing the boat is what I think Jay is referring to...

Jay about the only way to do it by yourself is to tie off the boat over at the docks away from the ramp...go get your trailer and back in until it is the right depth...I tie a 75 foot rope to the bow...untie the boat from the docks...and shove it off in a 45 degree angle out into the marina bay towards the boat ramp and towards the middle of the bay...hold on to the end of the 75 foot rope and run down the dock along the shoreline to your trailer...and then pull it over to your trailer...you are going to have wade and get wet and pull it on to your trailer...cinch it up tight...if your trailer doesnt have guideons get a pair...makes it a lot easier...kind of like kicking a field goal...you just have to get it between the uprights...my boat had a pair of metal ones and I put a pvc tube over both of them to give the boat more protection...it really gets complicated at aurora with the usual either southwest or southeast cross wind...hope that helps...it isnt much but it is the best I have to offer...it is how I do it when I have been by myself...and I just have a 14 foot Lund Rebel...

Thats the problem...Aurora is electric only...so you cant jam it on the trailer with an electric motor...unless you have it hooked up to a turbine from hoover dam... :eek:

[Is that lake REALLY worth all the trouble?]

I have either caught or been with someone who has caught the following fish there...a 10 pound rainbow, 10 pound walleye, 4.5 pound smallmouth, a 14 pound wiper...I also know there have been Channel Cats caught there approaching 20 pounds, a 14 pound and change walleye, and have seen wipers approaching 20 pounds but havent caught them yet...not too bad for a reservoir on the edge of town...and there are no lake lice (jet skiers)...you take the good with the bad...oh and I only recently have a boat...all those fish were caught from shore...I still have to figure this boat fishing thing out...
