Be cautious these days with the cold water and the warming air
IT'S FOG SEASON
Gps is a must the nicest days are the ones we have to worry about with the lack of wind fog banks this time of year are common

Be safe have fun!

What fog (see below)? I would note that if you operate a boat with radar in the fog one time, you'll never have a boat without radar again. The cost of digital radar is only about 25% of what it was just a few years ago and is about the cost of a high quality fishfinder now. Well, well worth the investment for anyone serious about the great lakes. Plus with more an more of us either starting the morning trip running out well before sunrise or staying out well after sunset, radar is almost a no-brainer now.

Wow, now that is a fog bank. I've been inside of one like that where you could barely see past the bow, but never seen one approach like that where the separation from completely clear to 0 visibility was so distinct.
