|What is the best ramp for when the water is way down in Lake Chickamauga? My boat is 22 feet long and I dropped the trailer off the end of Chester Frost ramp a couple weeks ago. I had to go swimming to get the trailer unstuck, it was cold. |
And BTW, thanks to the pier fisherman, Logan, that came down and helped me. He saw me in the water, walked over, offered to help and started taking off his coat to get in the water with me, I was up to my chest, but I asked him to just pull up the truck and trailer when I lifted it up and we were successful. He saved my butt. Bent the crossbar on the trailer a little but other than that I think everything is ok.
Back to my question, which ramp is best for low water with a 22' boat?
|Had the same problem at Chester Frost a couple of years ago. Was able to jack-knife the trailer enough to get one wheel back on the ramp. Mext trip we made there was a warning sign on the ramp. I launched from Holly Circle ramp in Soddy last winter with no issues. The ramp needs to be steeper but you shouldn't go off the end.|

|Boat ramps, like interstates, were designed when boats were smaller and not as much traffic. Looks like a general note to twra and corp of engineers about upgrading ramps from the membership might get a ball rolling.|
You will never accomplish anything if you don't try. First step is getting off your butt!! Show a kid what fishing means to you and share it with them.

|The ramp at Grasshopper campground is good. I haven't had any problem with the ramp at Harrison Bay since there replaced it.|
