I used to hunt from shore with a canoe down there. But I don't know of any launches at that end of the lake. Also it may look a lot different by the time the second split starts (both birds and ice wise) as things can change fast this time of year.

So I decided it's time to stop spying on you guys from from afar via these forums and create an account and weigh in.
There is a launch at the south end of Skinny. It's the Scott town park. Unfortunately, unlike the lake it freezes pretty quick being a canal. There used to be a blind down there. For all the time I spend down there fishing every spring I can't tell you if its still there or not but it was pretty much trashed anyway.
If it's not frozen the town of Scott asks for a 5 dollar donation to use the launch. I never have because I grew up in Scott and my family always paid property taxes there. Figure that's what the tax dollars go to. Probably not a terrible idea though.

Guy I work with was there the other day and took a 3 man limit. Mix bag of mallards, buffs and a goldeneye I guess. Hoping this warm up unlocks a some water before Sunday. I'm still seeing a lot of ducks down here. They're just all hanging out on the river in town unfortunately. It would be nice to hunt south skinny again next year, blind might be salvageable if the pilings are still there. God knows I have enough left over lumber to make it happen.
