But if you corral a couple of skanks from the Roundhouse and do them both in the Miller Ferry pavillion, you'll probably get a pass.

This is about the best links I found for Bolles Harbor. The DNR site is useless, do a search for boat launch and you can't even get a list. I spoke to the gal at the contact number for Bolles she did not know about overnight parking. She said a man was coming in later that would call me. Bolles is easy to get to and very close to the LasPlasisant exit off of I 75, it really is a good place to launch and they have over 300 parking spaces, so not being able to leave a trailer is ridiculous. I argued with them last year and got no where, they said that they have to make the rules the same for all DNR ramps not matter how large or small. I don't think that rule has changed but I am just wondering and a little worried what the consequences are if you do it anyway. I will investigate more since we want to use it tomorrow, and let you know.

What part of Detroit will you be driving from, if you mean you are going to be by the Detroit Metro Airport, then Erie Metro Park would not be a bad drive, and it is definately better to keep your rig there.

However that being said we plan on taking a chance this Thursday and launch there to head to Toledo for two nights so we can join up with LEOPA for the the fireworks on Friday. Ian thinks if we get a ticket it will be cheaper then towing to Toledo and launching at Minkies.
Has anyone tried leaving their rig over night at Bolles I can't imagine they would tow the truck and 43' trailer.

Who plans on doing the LEOPA thing on Friday?
Go to trouts accross the canal. He'll let you keep it there all weekend.

Do you mean launch at trouts, can you launch a Black Thunder there? We used to belong to Monroe boat club which I believe is by Trouts. We would launch at Bolles and then because I can not dock a 43" boat or park that long of a trailer, we would either have to hike around or get someone at the club to give us a ride and would park everything there. Even when we used to have the LEOPA Poker Run out of Monroe, they would have park by the club.

I just got a call back from the guy at the Sterling Park, he works for the launch sites and is not even sure about overnight parking, he radioed some one and they said it closes at 11, but then the guy says to me just leave it I don't think they will tow it or anything We will probably just chance it, what about people that plan on pulling out and then break down.

No trip to PIB would be complete without eating a freshly plucked seagull from the Patio beside the Roundhouse.


OH, and take the keys out of your boat if you leave it at the city docks

if its 4am and the police tell you to be quite and if they say"if i have to come back one more time, someones going to jail" well they wont be lieing, someone will goto jail, and you have to wait till monday to get them out, other than that, all the basics have been covered, last time i was there the police were really cool, they didnt mind drinking on the docks, as long as you were in front of where your boat was rafted and not wondering the entire dock with a live cocktail
