Watch your wake and help your lake!

Did you know… ?
The wake from your boat can destroy spawning beds?
Boating near shore can erode precious shoreline & harm aquatic plants?
Your prop can stir up sediments resulting in rapid algae blooms?
Loons and other nesting birds will often abandon their nests when stressed by near-shore boaters?
Fast boating close to the shore increases noise pollution?
It’s all true!

Aggressive boating behavior near shore can badly damage your favorite lake! Fast boating close to shore has permanently changed many Wisconsin lakes. Fewer fish, birds, frogs, helpful insects and other important animal friends result from fast boating near shore, too. Follow these important guidelines and you will help save your favorite lake! We can still enjoy ourselves without damaging our lake and our wildlife. Here’s how:

  • TRAVEL AT SLOW-NO-WAKE WHEN YOU LEAVE THE DOCK!
  • MAKE SURE YOU ARE AT LEAST 200 FEET FROM SHORE BEFORE OPENING YOUR THROTTLE!
  • TRY TO AVOID WEED BEDS AND OTHER SHALLOW AREAS WHEN BOATING FAST!
  • ALWAYS WATERSKI FAR AWAY FROM SHORE!
  • THROTTLE DOWN WAY BEFORE RETURNING TO THE DOCK!

TELL YOUR FRIENDS TO HELP BY GOING SLOWLY WHEN NEAR SHORE!
