Default Testing lakes Ind,Mich ????????

Looking for a testing Lake with 1 - 2 footers and some room to wind her up to finish dialing in the SKATER ,Lake Michigan has been 4 ft - 16 footers the last 2 weeks and is'nt co-operating at all. Lake shelbyville is 2.5 hours and usually flat as bath water .Kentucky Lake is awesome and 6 hours away so if were gunna do that kinda drive may as well keep on going and hit the St Johns river there has to be something around local within a few hours .
thnx in advance

My vote is for the St.johns. I live a mile away from it just south of Jacksonville in Orange Park. I would love to watch that beast run. It's still in the high 80's to low 90's here.

Right now I'm in Sullivan and it is raining I could check and see if there is some wind for the weekend. You would probably get some good numbers with the cooler temperatures and probably be the only one on the lake (it is bow season so all the fisherman are hunting).

Forecast for tomorrow (Saturday) is 60 sunny with 5 to 10 mph winds out of the south which would give you a couple good spots to run with the wind at your back. Come on down I'll meet you at aunt b's for breakfast.
Breakfast Na Lunch at the Red Roof Amish Buffet on 57 now yer talkin
I hear ya BIG Daddy ,its been raining here since last sunday and windy as phuch. give me a zip code 4 sullivan so i can check mondays forecast 60s dont bother us bro i'm leary of all the tree stumps in your lake and by eagle creek i've ran past tops of trees stickin out of the water .. I've been there a dozen xs and have never seen any chop other then a houseboat wake.are the marinas still open to launch ???
