Lake Michigan launch date

SO maybe another silly queston from me, but I have been an inland sailor of Lake Geneva WI most of my "career", and my wife and I just bought out first new-used 31ft cruising boat to try out hand on Lake Michigan.
We have a slip and are very excited to learn. I would like to launch late April, but my question to other Lake Michigan sailors is: when do you normally launch and is late April going to be too early in regaurds to storms and such, I am not too terribly worried about the cold besides hard freezes, but I do not want to be putting our boat in a situation that it could become damaged?

Any suggestions or reasons why you guys launch when you do would be great!
Thanks as always
