Recommended Posts

Whats the best ramp to use around Saugatuck for a 27ft amberjack? Also any Idea where I could keep the trailer over the weekend. Coming into town for the tournament.

The downtown ramp is the closest but its steep, not sure of the condition of the Douglas ramp. I live about 20min away and you're welcome to leave your trailer by me. 138th and 43rd nearest cross street, 49419. (Hamilton area)

It has been a few years since I launched in Saugatuck. Used the ramp downtown near the Big Lake Outfitters shop. The ramp was plenty deep but the concrete under the water is pretty short. Launched okay but put the back tires on the trailer past the concrete to get in far enough to get the boat loaded. No parking other than the streets near the ramp -- not a good idea on a weekend in Saugatuck.

I was told that the ramp up river out near the I196 expressway is very shallow and havigation to the lake can be an adventure.

I would contact some of the big marinas to see if they have a ramp, dockage and trailer parking. Tower Marine has a good size operation there.
