There are 2 ramps at shell mound. The one in the camp ground is concrete to a point then mud. This ramp is where most of the airboaters launch. The second ramp is more of a kayak, canoe launch next to the pier. It's all mud, but I have seen trucks launch in the mud and get out. Personally, if I were you, I would go out there on low tide without a boat and get the lay of the land. No water is one thing, but there are certain times where low water is really no water for long stretches.

Is your mud motor an SPS frame? If you have enough HP on it, probably not an issue. Wear waders so you can help your boat in and out of the ramp without getting wet. I think you posted your motor on the Big Bend forum before, boat is aluminum and light. However, I have the same boat I hunt out of (not the one I fish out of), that frame has a skeg that does not like sand bottom and if you can't get your prop in the water, you'll be pulling instead of power loading. I actually honed off some of my skeg so I can get a better bite in sand and really shallow water. But that was for Merritt Island and not for fishing. My mud motor wears my old **** out. I fish with an outboard with jackplate.
