New hobbies...

The dwindling attendance at bike week may be due to a transition of hobbies of younger folks. As mentioned earlier 3 tv channels & no social media made for more exploratory fun. While bass fishing...

North of Dow

Very close to that spot is the passage between Dow island and the "mainland". My first week on the lake I tooled into that stretch and was baffled, befuddled, & possibly even flabbergasted. Ahead of...

Ice fishing

This looks like its on track to be the fanciest bob house on the lake. Anchor over a winter hotspot, let it freeze in place, drill a series of 6" to 8" holes & rent jiggin poles. Serve hot...

Did that 4 years ago...

I was able to rent a slip for a 22' boat for exactly $1800 4 years ago. A diff slip at the same place became available for purchase the next year for thin money so I jumped on that. If you truly...

Choices...

So 2019 is doable but I would start now making contacts. You might have to wait for fall to sign a contract but it has become a more competitive env in the last year or two. You dont want to be "boat...

Season

Oh, a "season" is usually at least memorial thru labor day.
Many times its May 1 to some time in October. My slip season is May 1 to last weekend in October.

Just tow it.

I think most ramps are around $20 for round trip launch & recovery. For you its 2 to 4 hundred dollars a season + wear & tear on your towing vehicle.

No shortcuts...

You dont need to drive to them but you do need to call and/or email all of the marinas in your acceptable area.
Moorings seem to be mostly private or attached to a membership organization. There...

Just got seat covers from Amazon

I just bought "cheap" seat covers for my 4 pedastal seats from Amazon. They are basic but surprisingly solid @ $20 each. Saw many variations of center console covers of all sizes too.

Last 2 sundays found smallmouth deep into bays off the main lake on 4 to 5ft dirty sandy flats. Jerk baits were very good but water temps were mid 50s so give them time to bite. Got my biggest...

Samsung Note 8

The depth map options take a long time to load and are very cluttered. The regular map works fine. The satellite view loads quickly and could help locate where on a doc that the pump is located. For...

Boat store...

Bass Pro/Cabelas should place at least a small store along with a boat center, either there and/or with water access. Nitro, Alumacraft, & Ranger sales could be impressive if you didnt have to schlep...

Wafting burger smell...

Sooner or later you'll be out boating and catch a whiff of grilled burger wafting over the waves, imagine a cold one to go with it, and you will buckle, once. 😎

Three years...

I would think 3 years is the max for this. First year "everybody" will visit, say "that was cool" and likely not return. Add in 2 seasons of it being rented for summer lakeside weddings & such I...

I agree with the point that this is F&G doing their job, and, I wish they did this a lot more often.
