I usually use Soldiers Point ramp because I usually fish solo and I can tie up there while parking/retrieving my car and trailer. Best ramp in the Bay but a longer run to the heads. If I have crew to hold or drive the boat, I use Little Beach or Shoal Bay, depending on tide, surge and sand.

Little beach this time of year normally gets a bit of extra grooming due to the tourists! Just watch out for any strong westerlies in the arvo! It normally means storm and strong winds! Makes for difficult retrieving! 

Cheers scratchie!!!

i use little beach cos i stay at halifax, and i do it solo as i got the boat catch, but beware of little beach, at low tide tide u will 100% get bogged. because it's a ramp that build into beach. the ramp is wide enough for 4 lanes, but as 2 side of the ramp is beach.. at low tide u can only use the center 2 lane for a lesser chance of ur trailer wheel in sand. in middle lanes i was able to pull a 17ft glass boat out with a FWD but it requires some skill. not sure about shoral bay but soilders point is the best and more modern with floating pontoon while the little bay is not floating pontoon. anyway but if ur fishing near the head or offshore. soilders point is a long run especially when it gets rough
