I guess the only problem is that putting the boats in on Friday when it is nice and having the wind pick up on Sunday are two different things, but i like waves anyways . I almost forgot about jello shots, THANKS RaceGirl

Cameo actually has really good pizza, and they deliver it to your boat in the wee hours of the morning.

My bet is this 4th weekend will be one of the busiest ever. People have been putting off boating and spending money, but come the holiday they will be out in full force. Come the following weekend it will probably be one of the slowest weekends at the bay. I can't wait for next weekend to avoid all the crazy people.

You must be hauling ass because from what I remember Bay City was 3 hours from Toledo, and PC is about another 45 mins to an hour from Toledo.


And say you do drop in at Bolles and go over, and things do kick up Sunday, it just gives you an excuse to stay and extra day and call in sick to work on Monday!

This time of year you stand a decent chance of a good 48 hour forecast. It's not like Memorial Day when the weather and the jet stream are still in transition. There are more pop-up storms this time of year, but they have less of an overall effect. A passing shower will not turn the western basin from 2 footers to 8 footers for the rest of the day. It takes more time and a wind shift this time of year.
They post updated weather reports and wind and wave information on the big shower/bathroom kiosk. You should be able to stay informed, and if necessary, change departure times.

YA,

I am set on going out of Bolles if the weather is nice/ok and will play it by ear while there. I have to come through DTW and pick a guy up on the way to Monroe is right on the way and it gives a chance to get some running in before bargin up for the weekend. The more i read the more excited i get!!

Bolles Harbor or Lake Erie Metro Park boat launch are both good.
Both about the same distance to PIB.
Lake Erie will have better security and have never had a problem leaving my truck and trailer for the weekend.
I have used both.
