A little help please.......  

Lot's of boat ramps to
keep an eye on, so if you have an observation or
report that you think will help your fellow fisherman
on a particular boat ramp, please send me an email to:
I am particularly looking for information about
launching at the ramp, any hazards or other things
to watch out for.
You will get full credit for the report or any photos.
Help a fellow fisherman out who is not familiar with your
area and that will make it that much easier for you when
you visit a new area.   Thanks . . . . .
