Watch how hard you pull!

One of my Lake Brothers and I were diving on the Lady and I managed to get the Misty's anchor stuck. Nothing would get it up. So with a bit of air left in my tank I dropped down only to find that I...

Thanks Cate

The drowning message has to be said over and over again.

I will repeat myself, again. Kids and PFDs. I have never heard of a child drowning from a vessel that was underway. Yet, that is the...

Save the Lake

We spend big $$$ to fight the influx of milfoil in the Lake. Lots of money and lots of manpower. Why?

Because it is plant that is invasive and is not native to the Lake. If it is allowed to go...

Looking for work?

We are looking for a few licensed captains to operate a small tour boat out of the Wiers this summer. Just a day or two a week, sort of a fun retirement job.

Good questions to ask.

Why have a VHF radio on board? Well we pretty much all have cell phones today and if you are in trouble on the Lake dial 911. This will give you the state dispatch who...

Ice question.

OK, here is one for you science folks.

The ice on the Lake was solid as steel this winter. So when it breaks up due to sun, temperature and wind how does it get full of air bubbles?

I understand that the NHMP was the first to arrive on the scene. Oddly enough I was on the phone with them when it happened. They pulled the pilot from the plane and got him to a hospital fast.
