Hey guys and gals. I have a question and might need to just be told to settle down but am really upset about my home lake of Lake Weatherford. I was going to head there early to try and find some crappie early but the boat ramp is locked up and only open during normal business hours of the marina. So during the week the lake is only available starting at 8 am and the ramp is closed and locked again . In this heat...I normally only go from about 6 till 8 or 9 when that heat sets in. In order to get around this, you have to purchase the $135 yearly ramp pass that gives you the gate code. I was a little taken back when they were explaining this to me and I cannot seem to get over it! I just have never seen a situation where they can literally lock up a lake at night and open it back up according to a marina's hours.

Am I right to be shocked?

This is news to me, and if true, I am also not happy, because the lake is 10 minutes from my new house, and I also would only be able to get on it 6pm or later.

Try posting in the Bass fishing forum, that one gets more traffic.

For $11.25 a month I would have me a gate code and unlock it at 6am with a smile!

Been complaining about it ever since the put the gate on it. Not sure how they can close off the only access to public waterway.

Bad part is they will close the gate even with trucks/trailers in the parking lot. Ive seen the lock cut more than once since they locked people on the lake.

Glad to know I am not alone. Just was a bit shocked when I was told the lake was not open at 6 to come fishing.

Crazy!

On this one its not the City, although I'm pretty sure they are allowing it to continue. The ramp is on the marina property, not the cities. it's the marina owners worried about the one guy that wont pay with the honor box (that is there, just not used anymore) so we all have to suffer.
