Default Muffler laws on LOTO

I have a 35' Fountain with 575's and would like to take a weeks vacation at LOTO. I was told by some friends that I would need mufflers. Is the water patrol stopping boats for this? I would think there are quite a few boats on the lake that don't meet the noise requirement. I will use silent choice around docks and idle zones.

If you are there in the heart of the summer you probably will not have any problems. If you ar there in April you might get checked.

Your fine just don't bring a cat. That's a fact Jack.
Ask any big power cat or tail pitching V on this lake. Or you will be kicked off.

I can attest to what X said, especially early in the year, have had plenty myself and know ton's of people who have had multiple tickets and some that have been kicked off lake. bring your turndowns if you come to loto, and do not drink .

Ask Wiggler 4490, he knows a lot about the laws on the lake.

I coudn't agree more. I have a 46 Skater and they will stop you for any thing they can come up with. If your not a local watch out and don't drink!!! Those guys are AZZ HOLES. Other than that it is a great lake to have fun on. Next time I'll let you know how I really feel.

You got that right, I've had my fair share of Noise tickets in the past, but since I put on the turndowns no tickets so far. I agree with Jimmy and be very careful pulling into frankie and loui's cove, they hide around the corner.

They just look for world famous Jim Lee and the big 46.
He's bound to be doing something wrong.
Or just getting beat by a 36 in the big water.
