Seems like there was a lot of law enforcement presence this Sunday. As we left MacRay a Macomb Sheriff boat was ahead of us. As we got close to Decker's in the North channel we saw a St. Clair sheriff's boat sitting in the channel.

Anybody else notice them?

From the Cove in Canada, back to HCN about 10am, and then to the moot around 1 and back at 6, we saw none.

Yea they were everywhere this weekend. I got stopped on a jetski ... cuz we all know they love to pick on jetskis, and got a ticket with 3 civil infractions. The sheriff was writing the ticket before he even said what he pulled me over for. - From his point of view i was too close to the other vessels in the area, although I was clearly over 200feet away.

Where are those no wake Buoys that are usually oput there anyway?

Noticed them there too...even saw them come in to the gas dock at Miller Marina twice.

Looks like they are on revent crunch this year. More tickets they write, more money they bring in. I'm thinking they haven't put the nautical mile no wake buoys in because they can get more peole that way. I have seen plenty of people flying in that no wake zone.

Where is that? I have come into the JBM without knowing of any "not posted no wake zones," please enlighten me if necessary?

I noticed plenty on Saturday. After leaving Brown's on Saturday around 8 pm I passed one (i think Coast Guard) in the middle channel, one sheriff in the intersection of the north channel (pulling over poorly lit smaller boats) and another sheriff closer to the no wake zone by Deckers.

I believe it's 600 feet begining north of Ford's Cove through just shy of the 400 club. Mini posted the exacts a few weeks ago.

We have been wondering the same thing about the absence of the no wake buoys coming out of Emerald-JBM-Miller. If they want revenue for writing no wake tickets then that is an easy place. I notice a lot of people planing well inside where the markers usually are.

One of the reasons why I sold my PWC. Tired of the hassles from the St. Clair Sheriff. I say this because I never got hassled by Macomb county. Always St. Clair. Especially that cast iron bitch that wrote me that stupid ticket for being less than 10 minutes past curfew that cost $100 and a trip to the Marine City court only to stand next to real criminals and plead to a judge that little 'ol me was riding on my PWC a little late. Thanks so much Ms. Po-Po for writing that ticket that made me change my life's attitude for owning a PWC. Yeah, and she was soooooo nice about it too.


Have a nice day
