Thanks Muskrat. Put me down in the hopeful column. I went through every page of the last thread and found lots of good info on the logistics.
We have a family place across and down from goat island at one of the new campgrounds. Looks like a couple mile paddle if I leave my truck there. Shouldnt be bad in May, but crossing the lake in summertime in a canoe from there might be interesting with the boats stirring up the water!
