I'll go out in anything. Only the Coast Guard can keep up with me. I hope you are right but I live 1/4 mile from the lake and it is still really blowing. If we are lucky it will die and the waves will space out more. 5ft waves with a 3ft space makes for broken stuff I'll be there at noon, still planning on Fishermans since I know where that is. I think I will at least look for the other launch. BE THERE OR BE SQUARE.

Well, it's 11:15 and the lake shore is still seeing 40 mph gusts. Waves are 6-8 footers. And with gusts you know they are stacked on top of one another.

I have to work till 11:00 and then go home to pick up Holly. Should be in Musky by 1:00.

Thumbs up

It's cold but not raining I can hear the Lake and it is very angry. It is ready to eat a boat today At least the water is warm and if you stay close to shore you should be able to survive I will be there around 12-12:30.

It was a great time. We ate 4 12lb Turkeys and 100lbs of other food. Met some great people and found out Dyno lives right around the corner from me We need to get together again soon. The weather was great, a little cold, but sunny and the waves were big. We rode in JimVs boat and got some air and hit 84+ in the bay. Man that is fast and smooth. It goes faster but we ran out of room. At the end of the day I fell off the trailer and into the water. I was too lazy to take my shoes and socks off and ended up getting everything wet. Oh well, it was the first time in 39 years so I guess it is OK and no one saw it so that is even better Next year will be a better turnout when everyone finds out how much fun we had. It was great having this on the water so we could play. Plus there were a few boats out of the water so there were plenty of slips...for free I will post pictures later if I can get my E-Mail to work. Lightning really screws up things you know Great time, when is the next one? November?
