The only way to Put-In-Bay is to boat or fly over unless the lake is frozen. South Bass Island, where Put-In-Bay is located, is exactly what it says, an island.

There are multiple county ramps in the area where you can launch and also leave you rig. Contact the Ottawa County chamber of commerce or department of tourism.

Below is a web page that lists the various ramps. I would suggest picking one on Catawba or Marblehead.

http://www.lake-erie.com/launchramps.shtml

Not all are listed on there but it is a start.

Marblehead: Mazurik's is a great ramp. Lots of parking for trailers. I ramp my 39 cat there with no issues.

Roger's run is a good one, and the people are great. If you can't make that one there will be a LEOPA (Lake Erie Offshore)Poker Run on the weekend of July 15 th It will include Friday and Saturday dockage plus meals and runs around $250.00 for two people.

You can not tow your boat to Put In Bay, you would have to put in somewhere and go over by boat. Private marina's are in short supply so it is very hard to get a reserved spot. The municiple marina is a raft off situation, could be 12 or more rafted off, if you leave you have to wait for a spot again. There is a state park on the island that used to have the winerary you can stay in the marina there and take a short Ferry ride back and forth to the island. Some of the more local guys can give you that info. By the time you add up all the expenses for food and dockage the poker run winds up being a pretty good deal, plus you wil have fun and meet a lot of people that know the area.

You'll love it up there. Last time I was up I used East Harbor St Park launce and overnight parking. They also have trans docks, but you would be happier overnighting on the islands as there is more to do/see. Stay on Kellys one night, PIB or Middle Bass the next. PIB is kind of expencive docking on weekends and very buzy/crazy. You may like Middle Bass st park which runs a ferry over to PIB. Better dockage and still able to do both islands in one day/night.

must go here for an evening then putt around the corner for overnight dockage w/hookups.

If you have older kids, Ceider Point would be a good place to drop them for an afternoon of fun while you and the wife get some alone time. Great marina w/limo serv to the park.

July 8-9 is an offshore race in Mentor (hour drive east by truck)
Don't know how long your going to be up but might be a fun day on your way there or home.

ENJOY! You be back a second time!
