    Default Help! New Tritoon guy at Stockton

    Without getting too long winded here,
    I used to own a fiberglass Bass boat 4-5 years ago so I知 not completely a newbie to the lake and fishing but last month we purchased a tritoon and I知 really looking forward to getting back out there.
    I知 launching and loading by myself (wife says she壇 rather not. Afraid)
    What would you guys say is the best launch area on Stockton for a tritoon newbie. I知 sure I will be rather slow my first few times.

    Will probably launch around 10am and load around 5-6pm if that matters.
    Pulling boat with a Ford F-150 4x4

    Thanks in advance.

    I like the Stockton state park marina. There are two ramps and a dock you can park your boat and go back to your vehicle and move it.

    I agree and most I've been to are pretty easy. State park only issue I've seen is most people want to turn counter clockwise while some will try the other way?

    Ruark Bluff was easy also just steeper but closer to the main hwy.

    Masters, Crabtree and Cedar ridge are easy also I like it when they have the dock in the middle so you can back up next to them and float your boat off by hand. Remember you need a pass.

    Old state park has a very gradual sloped ramp and less traffic than some with a two lane and a dock. One might be able to take there time and load and unload there easy enough.

    If the toon is like my deck boat, gradual ramps are not so good. I just about need my front tires in the lake to unload. My boat rides pretty high on the trailer like the pontoons do.

    Well since you said your a newby be sure to rig your boat ready for launch at the staging area, and since your unloading by yourself, get you a big rope, tie to front of boat. back down ramp driver side closest to dock. back almost all the way in leaving room to stand on dry ground, unhook boat, take rope to truck back rest the way in tap brakes boats slides off trailer, you step out, hook rope on cleat, move truck/trailer to parking lot, find a spot away from everyone else. enjoy the day.

    second teach wife to help.

    This ^^^ but teach wife first and if the ramp is busy tie you boat off out of the way so others can use the ramp while you're parking.
