    I think we have reached an impasse. I’ll say it again if the wake is generated from outside the no wake zone , then it’s perfectly legal. And if a wave from a bass boat intersects your dock , you claim they are disrespectful? I just don’t see it man. It must be hell living on the lake sitting on your dock and just looking for something to complain about. It’s actually comical to me that you went through all the trouble calling the guy out and then contacting the tournament director . You would be a solid HOA president. And I’m not blaming you , what would I even blame you for ? I think it’s a stupid perspective you have . BTW next time you’re out cruising around the lake just remember that wave your throwing is going to travel all the way to the shore.   So look to your left and right and make sure there isn’t a dock on either side of the lake . Let me know how that goes. Only thing left to do is let us know what cove your in so we can be sure to slow down. Here’s one you can use too, when someone is fishing your dock run down and start the hoist pump up . Then start the boat up and rev it up a few times . I know your kind ...

    I agree that a boat operator is always responsible for there wake. But you’re fighting a losing battle if you think someone is going to be citied for it . How is someone supposed to prove that. There is totally two sides to this story , the biggest being no one is breaking the law lol . Jesus. I’m sure it sucks when a wave comes by and sloshes the water around . I haven’t seen a single instance where you’ve come in here for your yearly update and something actually has been damaged . I’m actually very very respectful when boating . And if I came in on plane and shut down in the middle of a cove outside of the no wake buoys and you came telling me to show respect . Well let’s just say you’re not getting an ounce man . From what I gather this is an all time Karen post .

    So I just read like 4 years of crap from this post . I have two questions, are these fisherman running in between your dock and the buoy ? Or is this just a big misunderstanding of how no wake areas operate ? I mean just putting a random buoy out and expecting no waves is kinda ridiculous.

    Decided two weeks ago were we going to do the upper Jacks from Prongs to Rymer . I believe it totaled about 16 miles . 
    Put in at Y hwy South Prongs water was @ 222 cfs upon arrival . We were greeted with some male anatomy painted on every tree at the Access . F bombs painted on all the rocks . Felt really nice leaving the vehicle there for the shuttle . The river was perfectly clear and just amazing . My buddy fished for 39 minutes or so without a bite. I spotted a small hole up ahead of him with a tree crossing it . I eased up there picked up the rod and told him . “ I’m going to get out to a lead on my first cast” sure enough landed a nice 15 inch smallmouth . This fish ended up being the biggest of the trip . We probably caught 50-60 fish in three days , vast majority were under 8” long though . Also, there is an ugly portage about a mile and half down from prongs . A tree all the way across the fast fall . With a sweeper right to the roof wad. Definitely not a spot to mess with . So we portaged around it .First day we floated about 3 miles and set up camp . The first night was cold 🥶 getting down to 26 . We were equipped though and stayed warm in the bag . All three days there wasn’t a single cloud in the sky and in three days we only seen 2 people on the river and they were just doing mile long day floats . I will say the river is a bit tricky . Sunday morning first rapid the girl high centers on a big rock in fast current . She was ok until she wasn’t and flipped . Nice wake for the morning up but she stood up and waded out . Only lost a pocket knife . There are so many caves on the float it’s crazy . Bluff after bluff with deep blue water . Made it to Jam up cave on Sunday . Probably the coolest thing I’ve seen in the state . Its really intimidating walking into it . And a far drop to the left . All in all we had a fantastic three days on the river . It was the first time in the Jacks and it did not disappoint. I wouldn’t recommend floating it at anything less than 200 cfs .
    On a different note , when we drove out of Rymers and got cell signal we each had messages from our friends . Letting us know some terrible news. One of my good friends and his family were in a car accident on highway 13 Saturday . His wife didn’t make and passed away. She was the kind of person who made everyone’s life better RIP Jess

    Funny story that kinda relates....
         I grew up in boats and never even knew what a "blown powerhead" meant until one of my uncle's drunken buddies borrowed his boat, and the only thing he knew of that came in 16oz. bottles was Stag beer.....so that's what he added to the fuel.  😅 
    I rebuilt that old turtle head Johnson at age 14.....and that's where it all started.

    That’s exactly what I said Bo . There was a big discussion on Facebook and everyone wanted to talk about what he should have done . And I’m the only one that said follow the laws of navigation . You are right and thank god no one was coming up lake following the law .Pretty sure that is exactly what got a father and son killed on table rock last fall . Hell it almost happened to me at the confluence of the big and little niangua several years ago . I even got flipped off right after the guy almost killed me lol 😂
