Which Launch

Looking for advice on which launch to use on Chautauqua. It has been years since I fished this lake,was docked at Dunkirk for several seasons. Now the wife and I bought a deep V19 footer we can trailer. Hoping someone can help me out with advice on a deep enough launch where one can feel comffortable dropping in and pulling out. Thanks in advance.

On the north end there is a launch in mayville and another in long point.  Both are nice.  I'm not sure when they put the docks back in the water in mayville in the spring.  The docks at long point are in year round.

Most of the time I launch at Prendergast.  It is a great launch for the summer and would have no problem handling your size boat.  I find that it can be too shallow to use in the late fall, so I normally switch over to Long Point.

Long Point is no doubt the nicest launch on the lake, but you have to pay an entrance fee to get into the park during the summer.  These fees are waved if you have an empire parks passport.

Guys are correct that Long Point is nicest launch-deep water and 4 ramps.  DEC has a double ramp in Bemis Point that is not too bad and is free.  Only downside is that it gets busy in the summer.  Prendergast is shallow and is tough with a north wind.  I use Bemis until it gets busy then go to Long Point (I have a park pass) when I'm not on the lift.
