MA10 launches
« on: May 28, 2024, 06:47:14 AM »
Decided to have boat day with my wife on Sunday  2 June. Dockside lunch after a morning of coho fishing the Jeff Head area looks fun. Never been and was wondering what launches were available for 21' boat within 20 miles. Coming from the south and Kingston looks close but don't wanna deal with zero parking or mega early launch. Any insight is greatly appreciated.

Everett boat launch is probably your best bet. Lots of parking and shouldn't be to busy in June. Check the tides before you go.

Edmonds is a pricey launch that is a lift, only open certain hours, but is a great marina.

Shilshole Marina might be your best bet if you're coming from south of Seattle and trying to hit Jeff head.

Everett is an excellent option except at really low tides, but seems like the extra drive in your truck and trip down to Jeff head would not be worth it.

Kingston has tons of parking and fresh water wash. It only starts to get full when king's opens..
The Port Orchard launch is good. As is Manchester. They have less parking but generally don't fill up in the "off" season...

There is also Don Armeni on Elliot Bay. It shouldn't be busy this time of year

Thanks a ton. Kingston ramp looked great. I was just worried it being full with the area opener.

Yeah, I'd just do everett, but that's because I live north of there, I'm sure if I lived further south I'd be looking at a different launch..... I do like everett boat launch, plenty of parking and plenty of lanes, not to far to run down and fish area 10 if you don't mind a short run.

Any good dockside eats. Boat day gets spendy when my wife joins but treat her like a Queen, and It's good to be the king  ;)

If you're coming from the south and food is a priority (as it should be), Don Armeni is tough to beat. Marination Mai Kai is next door, and there are a ton of other options near there around Alki.

Skip the drive through north Seattle (I5 to Shilshole can have traffic on a nice weekend day), and it's still an easy run up to Jeff Head.

Suquamish dock and walk up to Sully's...
Bremerton has the boat shed... limited dock space though
Bainbridge public dock walk over to Doc's or the harbour House.

Gig Harbor has the Water Front Inn and Anthony's Home Port with Boat mooring if you are on the south end.

The Boat Shed on Rich inlet (Bremerton) has amazing food. As Fishgamereaper said, the Dock is tiny and the current rips through there. Watched a 40 foot sailboat loose its mooring rope and before the owner could get to the dock, his boat was hitting the Minette bridge pilling.
Only 2 defining forces sacrificed themselves for you:
The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

My rock,
He trains my hands for war and my fingers for battle.

Armeni has about 80 slots for trailer parking only and people also park on the street if full. Spot Prawn opener it was full. Two nice docks supporting four launch lanes was nice. $12 launch fee if I recall correctly.

Halibut called on the opener. Ended up launching from Kingston and explored the area. Fishing was really good and kept 3 silvers about 3lbs each. Plenty of good sized Bmouth in the area also. Wife enjoyed the town even with all the pirates about.
