Devils Lake Waves

Was anybody out on Devils this weekend when the little micro-bursts rolled through?  We got caught on the water up on Chain Lake on Sunday.

Saturday the main lake got hit hard and I heard there were a couple of boats lost. Pic is from Saturday near the casino.

 I did see a picture of a boat capsized on Devils posted by someone on Facebook.  Scary stuff, it's a good idea to respect the weather.

Don't practice until you get it right, practice until you can't get it wrong.

ya...I went out in Pelican Lake one calm morning at dawn several years ago, the return trip to Grahams Island that afternoon had 8' waves...awful scary in a 17.5' boat...the 115hp never felt so underpowered!  got calouses on my hands from working the throttle and steering wheel. the next day at my office i looked at the 6'-8" door and thought those waves were easily 1.5'-2 higher than the door! We were lucky...we were a couple inches away from swamping the boat with every wave...just be patient and you can get thru it.
