Decided to sneak out on a Saturday Evening to get out on the lake and enjoy what might be some of the last warm weather of the year. The water was still warm enough to swim. The kind of water that was cold when you first touch it, but your body becomes used to it and eventually it feels warm. That was this night. Testing the waters! We anchored out around Fish island and I was able to do a little fishing - Not one bite sadly. Not one bite Eventually we relaxed with a couple of drinks Cheers! And sat back and watched the sunset Evening light As the temperature dropped, we would don our sweatshirts and enjoy the…

Evenings on the lake are some of the most enjoyable times. The lake becomes quiet. All the boaters go in, the renters head in for 5 o'clock supper, the people who trailered in the boats need to go home... The waves die down to a whisper along with any wind. You can count on one hand the number of boats left out there. Tons of privacy, quiet, and relaxation as you just float in the broads, maybe jump in the water, have a glass of wine, and just watch the sun set. Waiting for the sunset Time for a cigar There is always time for me to have a cigar on the boat. I've really taken to watching the sunset…

Enjoying the last warm day Well the 2020 lake season is officially over. Fall is barreling upon us. It's time to wax your skis and get those snow shoes ready. Need to make sure my iceboat is ready to run this year. But before we put away the swim suits, we hit the lake on the last 80+ degree weather day! We had a good 2020 So despite everything that 2020 brought us, we made the best of it. Got our diets on track, worked out a lot and enjoyed the outdoors. Took out our boat more often then we would ever dream and enjoyed our time at the lake. Didn't do as much fishing as I would have liked,…

As the cooler weather descends upon us, the time at the lake is dwindling down to a halt. I would love to get a few more good outings this fall with fishing and just enjoying being on the water as opposed go going in. Of course there was a great end of the season sale on the Yamaha RS300 - so I snagged one and it just showed up yesterday. I mean... How cool does that look? Good for 100 feet and 3 mph. I haven't actually used it yet so don't rush out and buy one just yet, but figured worst case it would be something fun for the kids to use and play with around the boat and…

Posting some photos from around the lake this past weekend. Not much to really write about - no adventures per se while out on the water, but definitely enjoying all that life has to offer right now. Cat at the helm getting ready for her first excursion without me to help Favorite hanging out spot I'm avoiding the sun while the wife is trying to get some Rattlesnake and Diamond Island Alton Bay Enjoying a swim and getting ready for sunset Sunset on the lake Full Moon up in the sky while the sun sets opposite direction

Took the Scarab out for a day on the lake and tossed out the two anchors at our favorite spot. Relaxing on the lake Since we have a jet boat (no propeller) we can go into two or three feet of water without worrying about hitting a rock. The boat drafts next to nothing. Honestly we are ecstatic with our Scarab 215. Purchased it new and don't regret getting it one bit. Only 30 hours on the boat this year so far, but for what I have under my belt, I would recommend this boat to anyone and everyone. We drop the main anchor and then toss out my four pronged "rock anchor" - honestly not sure what else to…
