    will be a perfect day for being out there today! I’ve got a bathroom remodel going on, so am anchored around here. Have fun!

    Not sure about bass fishing spots Specifically. I believe that record bass was near the entrance to Burt Lake. But you really can‘t fish from your boat there in the river as there is way too much traffic. There are a few bass tourneys on Burt and Mullet each year so I know they are in there...

    OK, so I’ve never been on a poker run, but maybe that’s the 4 Ace’s celebration ritual. He “won”!!!,

    Enclosure for year round boating.

    I had the same idea. Will that keep ice off the lake too? Great idea either way!!

    Wow, crazy seeing that. Could also be a clogged, or worn out (forgot to change out) impeller. Overheating can happen pretty quick. I‘ve seen 2 boat fires on inboard/outboard over the last 3 years because of it ( not my boat, but I’m pretty religious about changing the impeller every 3 years...

    For those days when there's no room in the cooler for sandwiches

    Awesome idea, pure genius. I’m hungry/thirsty just looking at them!

    Pontoon Hydrofoil

    I don’t believe it can be done well without both a hull design change for weight distribution and more importantly a motor change. The shaft needs to be extended to get the prop further in the water (Unless I suppose you are in always calm water (which I never am)). I think it is an exciting...

    Holiday weekend.....

    +1 on amateur hour comment. It’s been a bit crazy out there. Fireworks tonight and I had to pass because too many of them out on a dark lake. They don’t know what they are doing in the daylight!

    Boat lift bunk styles

    We also have the toon rails and love em. Saved us from banging around a few times on windy, wavy days. Set the width of the rails so there’s not much wiggle room on either side. So again on windy days it keeps us away from the poles side rails etc.

    Lake and Marina “Neighbor” Rants:

    I hate the high road……but you’ll be glad you went that way. My suggestion on your dock….based on mine due to my configuration, if you don’t want to move your dock across property and like it where it is anchored on shore, angle it from same spot toward center of your property line. Mine...

    Lake and Marina “Neighbor” Rants:

    Wind chimes, big, loud and lots of them along property line. You can take them down while you are there. Add big flags along your dock, whatever kind the neighbor finds offensive with bright colors to ensure they are distracting. And if he uses his extended dock on your side of the dock...

    Lake and Marina “Neighbor” Rants:

    We only do it for fun and relaxation….you all should try it. on the placement, no place we “have to” put it. Just between our theoretical property lines (land lines extending into lake) so it does not, nor any attachment, crosses the line. some bodies of water (and likely some towns) might...

    Lake and Marina “Neighbor” Rants:

    Wow, that is too bad Jeff. We have one of those neighbors on our street too. Everyone gets along well, except for the arrogant jerk who doesn‘t care about anyone but himself. pissed off everyone at some point. Luckily I’m a few doors down, but everyone has learned to live with him by ignoring...

    fuel fill problems

    Also have this issue on my 2017. 2 things worked for me 1-tilting the fuel nozzle so the grip is in the 3 oclock position and 2- not seating the nozzle all the way down. I put it in as far as it will go and then bring it back about an inch, then fuel it up (Preferred method for me now)...
