I said no naturally occurring lakes IN ohio, not bordering on ohio. This is a fact, not opinion.
Better check your map again, pal. At least half of Lake Erie is IN Ohio.

Youre comment that Lake Erie is less choppy reveals your lack of knowledge of that lake, which will match Lake Michigan in storms and chop easily. But I love northern Lake Michigan too. It's blue and beautiful with forests and great sandy beaches.
You practice Law with reading skills like that?
The guy's grammar wasn't the greatest but it was clear that he was indicating that Lake M is less choppy than Lake E

That part of your map north of Beaver Island that you labeled Canada is actually the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Do you have any editors?
I remember one made for TV where the main characters is shown getting on a ferry in Detroit and taking it to Chicago. Another showed a guy in Ann Arbor, MI in February sitting on the tailgate of his truck in shirt sleeves listening to crickets chirp. Of course that same one had a woman in nothing but a sun dress in Idaho at the same time.

Lake Erie is NORTH of ohio, not IN ohio. Canada is on the other side of Lake Erie. Look up the definition of "in". And, I'm not your pal.

The problem with all of the Great Lakes is that they are both large and small at the same time. They are large enough to develop huge waves but small enough, compared to the ocean, that there is no room for the waves to spread out. You can ride up and over a 35 foot wave in the sea because of the length of the fetch between the top of one and the next one but in the Great Lakes you tend to plow through them because they haven't had the distance that it takes to spread out.

BTW, we have our own turd alerts and our own algae blooms. Metro Beach in Lake St. Clair is missing a handle for flushing but otherwise you might as well dip in your toilet after you use it.

How can an entire state not have a lake? Even Nevada has lakes. We have more than 11,000 in Michigan and 358 just in Oakland County.
