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:

fishingdestinguide@cox.net

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 . . .
