It was absolutely beautiful yesterday. I highly recommend this spot for a decent swim. Had to deal with a little boat wake from the large boats coming into the Baltimore too far on plane, but was a spectacular day all the same.

Not to worry about giving away any secrets. Most boaters on this lake are so used to Muscamoot, most wouldn't even dare go away from that to really enjoy the lake. And those who are willing to venture away from the norm really appreciate what the lake has to offer.

Keep on rocking!

It was a great time!


I had a chuckle on the way out of there, back into the North Channel. I realized I was MERGING with traffic. Not sure I've ever merged in the boat before!


The view, as we were leaving...

That's the North Channel on top, and a little of the SNI on the lower right. You can see Deckers as well.

I wondered who the rafted boats were! We were there..... (till around 4:30)
Did'ya happen to notice an "old" flybridge boat, white/blue bottom, in the shallows by the reeds? (bimini up with multicolor dodger flying from the bimini).
Now...... if I'd had a LSCN Burgee... someone might'a noticed!

Sorry, none of my photo show you. (didn't get that many. batteries were nearly dead)

Wish I'd/we'd have realized another LSCN'er was there!

I had a great time with all of you; I agree it is a great location. It is a perfect spot for a quiet and relaxing afternoon. It was nice to meet Away Point; you have a real nice family.

Hello Mr. Ken. Yes, I still feel bad about the burgee's.

However.....Both Myself and Area51 had our LSCN burgee's flying. I wish you would have caught that and came over to say hello!? That would have been great!

If you click on the pic it will enlarge it. I thought the size was a decent size?

Thats just so happens to be an excellent location to watch the sunset and have a glass of wine, followed by an evening swim, too.
Easy in easy out, even at night it is an easy spot to get to/from without a chartplotter or GPS, if you know the area and aren't coming from too far away. There are so many good spots on the lake that people don't know about. I think I saw your raft out there as I passed by on the jetski in the evening, I remember seeing the green Sea Ray rafted with about 2 other SeaRays. I was taking a ride through the flats, and as I was doing so i decided that I enjoy the flats much more on a weekday, now that the water levels are up and there are so many boats in Fisher Bay and all of the cuts.

Next time slow down and check for the LSCN burgee's. Would have loved to finally meet you and offer a cocktail to you.

That'd be my bad.... should've noticed your burgees.... will get my binocs out next time and look closer (and probably get accused of checkin' out the babes!).
The Baltimore Cut has been our "secret" swimmin' hole for 35+ years. It's one of the few places where you can stir things up (boats moving, folks swimming, etc) and the water will clear up in just a few minutes (Strawberry Island is another, but much more crowded & cooler). There's just enough current flowing through the reed beds to keep the water clean and yet still warmed from the shallows (not quite as warm as FB). You can't leave a water toy in the water long or it'll drift away if it isn't tied to the boat. Pretty clean bottom too.
If you're not familiar with the bottom there, I'd have someone on your bow going into the shallows, to warn you of anything on the bottom. There are several large pieces of timber on the bottom you need to watch for if you plan on getting in shallow. (I pulled one 8' long piece of 2" pipe from the bottom the other day, as well as a grill someone threw overboard and took 'em back to the marina to dispose of).
