Went out on the boat with some friends this wekend and went to a different lake than we usually go to. Our regular lake is a private gated community that only residents are allowed access (i have my boat registered to my dads house, lol). its a small lake, about 300 surface acres, but still lots of fun. the rules are pretty lax but the one rule everybody follows is that the rules of traffic apply on the water, go up the lake on oneside, come back down the other and stay right of the bouys. the lake we ventured to saturday was much larger but by far more dangerous. people were every where!! I spent the better part of the day just making sure nobody was coming at me head on!! at one point two jetskis passed by each other so close you couldnt get another one between them. another guy was in a big baja that read "A$$HOLE" across the stern and it was no understatement!! The boat was loud and all he did was run in circles makin noise and trashin up the water. dont get me wrong my boat is loud too but i would rather stretch its legs and let it run for all to hear than drive in little circles wasting fuel and being in the way. I was wondering if anybody else has had experiences like this or was it freak accident that i went to the lake on "moron day"?
The DNR was nowhere to be found until around dinner time when everybody was pretty much gone and i think all they were doing was checking for beer at the campsites. I really hope not every lake/river is like this because while we still had fun we definitely were concerned for our safety. please reply with other interesting encounters!!!
