Closing of Sturgeon Pt for 2023

Recommended Posts

Sturgeon Point is indeed open for 2023.

I stopped in yesterday (Aug 9) to see what breakwall repair looks like.

Hope it works, because it doesn't look much different to me than it was.

Launch fee $15 as stated above.

Wet Slips are about 1/3 full

Only about 10 boats in dry slips.

Harbour opening looks wide and deep from launch area.

Sign at launch says they have ice and worms at $5/doz

Watched some poor dude slide his boat off the trailer into the concrete way too early because he unhooked his winch and safety chain before backing down the ramp. Heard the lower unit or hull crash into concrete in shallow water. Parked his trailer and boat was still floating when I left. Hope he didn't go out into lake because it was pretty rough and windy. Maybe he was just going to his slip for the season.

As the Lake Erie surface waters  temperatures increase, the better fishing moves to the west and deeper waters. By the Fourth of July, the better fishing moves west of Sturgeon Point.  Trailer boaters pay to the state sales taxes, registration fees, fuel taxes and assorted sport fishing sales taxes. Yet our elected officials are ignorant of our needs and use the revenues generated by trailer boaters and others without a good response to our needs all along the lakeshore. There is no one best site for the year and we need establish more sites, not just dump money in the same old established sites.
