Having been boating & fishing for 60+ yrs.,My experience tells me that a 25 hph boat speed limit produces the highest & most destructiv wake from most bass boats. 28 mph usually required to get these boats on plane ,consquently resulting in smaller wakes. Seems like a 30 mph would reduce wave erosion & less shoreline damage.

We are adjoining land owners to the lake. We have really enjoyed fishing the lake so far this spring. The bass fishing is awesome. However we would love to be able to purchase a lifetime or season pass. We were told by several lake wardens that we would be able to get lifetime passes before the lake opened last year. But now we are being told it is not an option. We as land owners around the lake are a asset in protecting the water in front of our homes. However, on the other hand we have lost our privacy in our own backyards. Before the lake was opened we only had the wildlife looking at us now there all these boats. I feel that we should be given a break and at least get a discount on lauching or boat.

I am in agreement with the lamb post. I also live right at the lake and have been fishing it about 4 days a week. That is $60 every week just to get in. A season pass would be the way to go for people who frequently go on the lake. After the newness wears off people are going to get tired of $15 a trip and not come as often, the lake would then financially benefit from have passes sold for the year or lifetime. Also as with honeycutt post on the 25mph speed limit, my boat is 21 ft with a 250hp motor, I have to run 28.3 mph to stay up on plane which decreases the amount of wake my boat boat is producing. a 30 mph speed limit would be the perfect number for decreasing wake, and soil erosion and all boats to run properly and safely.
