Looking at a trip with a place to stay about 30 miles north of the lake (no I'm not going to try and spell it again!) don't know if anybody here boats there, looks like Meredith would be my closet place to put in. Not sure if I need any special lake permit or boat wash before I dump it in? We're staying at one of the Bass Pro places up there and figured if I driving that far I'm bringing the boat! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, looking at the weekend of July 21st. Thanks for the input!!
