Yeah, I was a little surprised at the $20 launch fee at Lakeview.
By fishing "new" do you mean fishing "really tough?" That was my experience. Not knowing the lake and launching at Lakeview, I stayed pretty much on the North half. Might should have gone south, 'cause the water mid lake and north looked awful. In 4 hours I caught one dink. I had plans to stay the day, but decided to cut my losses and get off the water early before even more skiers showed up.
