....next week on the lake during Jobbie Nooner? I'm not going to participate by any means, but my Dad will be here fishing, and we'll be on the lake. So the huge raft-up aside, how bad is the lake and the traffic? He knows to expect boat traffic and the usual craziness, but I've not been out on the lake during JN yet. I was out last year July 4th...is it similar to that kind of traffic? He can handle the fun and games, but if it's going to be foolish to even be on the water that day, we'll go fish some other lake.

It never stops me, not that anything much ever does.
I just avoid the Gull Island area and be careful when and where I launch and what time I head in.
Common sense and watching out for others who may not be using their own common sense works well enough. There are plenty of good fishing areas to be able to stay out of the way of those who are in party mode. Most seen to head out early enough and stay out late enough to not be a problem for me.
Just keep your eyes open and be safe, you should be fine.

I tried to go out fishing last year during it and it was not fun a lot of traffic on the water and the fishing wasn't all that great. But if you do go out good luck and be safe.

Sounds good. I figured as much, and I don't mind avoiding crowds, I just don't want to put my Dad in a situation where it goes from being a busy day on the lake to us not even being able to fish because of relentless boat traffic, even beyond the center of activity. I imagine Harley and Selridge are pretty clogged then huh?

Harley and Metro are crazy, not sure about Selfridge. I'll probably launch at 9 Mile and stay closr to the south end of the lake. Worked out well last year, got on the water about 10:00am and fished until around 6:00 or 7:00, and missed most of the traffic. Never had any problem with boat traffic, once the gang gets there they tend to stay a while.

I would not be caught dead anywhere near anchor bay or anywhere in the northern part of the lake next Friday. As Laura said, stay to the southern part of the lake and it will be no differant. Alot of the popular marinas are in that area and youll have 30 footers buzzing around you all day long. Stay south of Metro and it should be fine.

2nd busiest day on the lake. The raft up is worse.

I replied to your PM Esox. Good luck. I will be out that day but probably on the other side.

What the heck is jobbie nooner??? First time I heard that term. Sounds like something you might get from the wife after coming home early from work

clickable version:

ww.jobbienooner.com

Edit-Sorry Laura, I killed the link. Got a PM from a dad who clicked it....even with Mini's warning and saw what he saw (which was way more than just topless!
) and was worried his kid or another kid could see the pics too easily by clicking. So let's just say that someone should Google 'jobbie nooner' if they want to navigate the web there themselves, and we'll not hyperlink to it from LSCN, though I'm sure there's a hundred links elsewhere here that have been posted just this week.

Jeff


Fair enough and not a problem

A good example of when a canadien license comes in handy!

not JUST topless


But dont leave your boat unattended. In the past few years theft is becoming a big problem. These are not the same type of "boaters" you would encounter on a normal weekend on the lake. This really is amateur hour on the lake.

Sounds like bike week but with boats instead of motorcycles
