Looking for something a little farther south of Wisconsin? Check out the fun on Fox Lake located in Northern Illinois. These events happen pretty much every week-end.

Summer Time

Summer is revving up, but the weather is sure taking it's time here in Wisconsin. Take this opportunity to get your boat working in prime condition before venturing out on the lakes. Make sure you check your battery, spark plugs, fuel lines, and navigation lights to make sure that all are working properly. Go through your safety items like your first aid kit and your fire extinguisher. Be sure to have plenty of life vests on board as well. You also might want to keep some extra rope and a small tool kit for minor repairs stashed away for emergencies. These simple things can be checked within a matter of minutes, and can spare you what can seem to be a "lifetime" on the water. Most importantly, be safe and have fun this summer. See you there......

Wisconsin Lake Maps

Did you know that you can get topology maps of all of the lakes in Wisconsin? I visit this site regularly before planning an outing on a lake that I have never been on. There is a ton of information that can be found here including launch sites, depth charts, and marina locations. Head on over the Wisconsin DNR site and check them out here.

2009 Min-Aqua Bats

My all-time favorite waterski team. They provide free shows every Sunday, Wednesday, and Friday throughout summer at 7pm. They are by far the most entertaining local waterski show in the state of Wisconsin. Their website can be found here.

Lake Koshkonong Speed Runs

Rumor has it that the Sunset Bar & Grill speed runs are scheduled for August 15th, 2009 on Lake Koshkonong. Registration is 10am-12pm. I have not been able to confirm this as of yet.

Venetian Lights Boat Parade

The 10th Annual Touchstone Energy Waterfest Venetian Lights Boat Parade on beautiful Castle Rock Lake is scheduled for Saturday, August 1st, this year and as always, the best place to view the parade and grand finale fireworks is from the captain's seat of your own boat. So decorate your boat and enter the parade! You'll have the chance to win great cash prizes among many other prizes, and you'll have a front row seat at this spectacular event!
