Default Lake Michigan Apache sighting

Seen an apache 36 ft. saturday leaving and returing to the channel in Grand Haven. Water was really big, you could get water over the bow in the channel. Seen a couple big cruisers, and was suprised to see an apache. It didn't seem to have a tough time once out of the channel. Musta been a thrill ride. There is some serious rough water on that lake. You had to be carefull near the end of the pier if you were walking.

I guess the lake michigan regulars see this all the time, I was just suprised to see a performance boat heading out.

I went out Saturday in New Buffalo for the last ride of the season. You are right the water was huge.

Looked liked another perfect day in Grand Haven.

I have been up there one day when it is flat as a board then the next day head back to Chicago in that crap. Looked like fun!!!!!!!!!!!

And people say Lake Michigan doesn't get rough LOL
