The lake is a BIG lake.
Six miles is a fairly large lake. But that's still a big boat. Attracting attention cuts both ways. If I were you, I'd attempt to be the most responsible, most polite and most friendly boater on the lake- both to everyone else and especially to the watercraft guys. (you should be doing that anyway, but most don't) It's hard to f- with Mr. Popular.

But in the end, the open ocean is way more fun and worth the tow.

Sorry to hear about your hassle.
And here I was being pissed that the USFWS officer we saw on Sykes Creek on Sunday was getting paid to go FISHING!! Yep, we idled by with the Nordic and my buddy John C. in the Seadoo jetboat, and there he was fishing off the back of the USFWS flat's boat! Your TAX dollars hard @ work.

Maybe it is easier to use a rod and reel to get a fish in the boat for scientific/research/etc than to lower a swim ladder and put a welcome fish sign on the drive.

Did they say it was your wake?
or physical contact?

CG (rubber boat ) wake damaged our Pantera, in a "No Wake " Zone, they paid.
Lake Weir it was!

They said I contacted dock--I didn't and have several people to back me up on that one.
