Talking Lake Michigan Today

What a day! Sunny and 1 footers. It don't get no better than that for me. I was out for the first time this year. My new D.U.I distributor gave me a 1 mph increase in speed over the stock worn out one. 64.5 gps is the best I have ever seen. Had fun racing a 25th Anniversary 272 Baja. He passed me so I shoved the stick forward and was able to catch him and get ahead of him. I think he was surprised. Any other West Michigan boaters out today? I launched out of Dunton Park in Holland. I saw a few boats I knew. By the time we came in around 3:45 there were quite a few boats out. Beautiful day, finally. Almost made me forget about paying $220.9 for midgrade. Almost.

Seems like we've had nothing but rain of late so the rather nice day was very welcome. Hope this kind of weather is here to stay for a while. Sounds like you had fun!

Doug, that looks like BGIII's old boat. But it's not. Playn is from the other side of the state.

Funny, my phone didn't ring today.......

Hi, Mike

I dragged my young son with me today. I bribed him by taking him to the Dome World batting cages on the way home.

I'll give you a call after you get back from LOTO.

See ya, Doug

MACDAD260, Were on the other side of the state as Foul said. The boat was originally from the area (Zeeland/Hudsonville) and the boat was over in Zeeland for the past several weeks having some work done though.

We had a good group out on primal instinct and the playboy cigarette. Personnal bests for both captains despite full tanks, no waves and five big guys in both. 95 and 82.5. The air is still a little cool at 95 over 55 degree water but we were warm in our hearts. NK
