Yeah... the landing will be closed from July 6 to Dec 1 for parking lot reconstruction. There is the city launch by the island that charges a fee and is very shallow. The fee is $35 for non white bear lake residents $25 for residents. The landing has about 16 spaces to park, they will be full once Ramsey closes so prepare to walk a long ways from where you park.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
