how long boat ride from Lampe to Walnut creek

I just got dock space at Lampe and I am used to launching from Walnut.  I go due north out of Walnut to 50'+.  What kind of drive time to get to that area from Lampe?

    12 mile the way the crow flys (or rt5). +/- a few miles.

    The navionics app has a distance finder if you want to know exactly how far it is. Then its pretty simple to figure out how long itll take you

    I would say to expect at least 25-30 minutes on good water, and double that if facing west wind seas.. . Speed is totally dependent on wave conditions and boat abilities.

    psu is right on the money. No need to go much further than the lighthouse/weather buoy. I'm a walleye noob and they are jumping in the boat.
