#1. I know of a certain Eliminator that is rumored to be attending. If it is, YOWSER!!
Cant remember your name but I met you a couple of years ago on the Muskegon (sp?) River when I towed my 24' Sonic to see my friend Kevin M. who lives there on the water.
Have'nt seen your new baby but Kevin has told me about it.
If you are coming, yikkkkkkeeeesss! (three Eliminators on that pool with the slowest one running mid 120's )
#2. They drop the water level at Alum every fall so the Winter ice does'nt erode the normal shore line.
The water is now down around 8' or 9'.
For those of you coming that don't know the lake it's just and old flooded farming valley.
If you follow the contours of the shore line you will be able to tell where its shallow.
It's still over 50' deep off shore.
The ramp at the marina where you are meeting at is one place to be carefull.
As you head out of that cove, go straight for the middle of the lake. The penninsula to your left will either be exposed or very, very shallow.
There is a gravel bar to your right that runs basically straight out towards (east) the lake from the break wall of the ramp. This bar runs approx 50 yds out, and then turns straight south towards the damn. This will also be exposed or very,very shallow.
Another similar area is the first main land mass north of the s.e. ramp by the damn. Give this area 100 yds. (I hit a cement block here with a 14' O/B while at least 50 yds off shore!)
Most of the lake is very deep, just remember the farm land/valley scenario.
If you give the shore line 100 yds, you'll be fine.
See Yah all there!
