First of all, congratulation on 2 years cancer free.   We want to welcome the wed night trail to Amos Lake. We would like to make your members aware that Amos Lake is infested with Variable leaf milfoil. 
As I'm sure you know VLM is highly competitive invasive that grows rapidly and spreads by fragmentation.  These dense mats decay depleting the oxygen which can harm aquatic organisms and lead to fish kills.  In 2013 a survey showed four areas totaling two acres a resurvey this month showed six areas of approximately 7 acres in aggregate area.
We have attached a map of where these infestations are located.  We hope that you will help us control the spread of VLM by avoiding these areas. Unfortunately, many of these areas are probably some favorite spots.  Another helpful idea is if your members would toss weeds in a bucket in their boats instead of back into the lake.
Best wishes for a successful tournament.

Water temps are skyrocketing!

I fished on Friday night, with water temps at 70-71.

I fished again last night, with water temps at 76! By the end of this week they will likely be at 80 degrees   :o

I had a chance to try out the livewell lights last night. Wow!!  :o

This is one of the best updates I have done to my boat in a long time  :nod:

They worked perfectly and allowed me to put fish in the livewells, remove fish from the livewells, retrieve cull tags (which are stored in the port livewell) and never have to reach for a flashlight once.

I was originally concerned that having them mounted at or slightly above the water line might cause a glare on the surface of the water in the livewells, but this didn't happen at all.

Definitely well worth the work required to install them  :yes:

Boating Forum / Livewell Lights
« Last post by Curt - RI on June 14, 2018, 10:07:22 AM »
I wrapped up my LED lighting project this week with the installation of LED lights in both of my livewells.  :yes:
Here's a pic of them turned on in my garage after dark.

Here's the Port livewell.

Here's the Starboard livewell.

And here's the LED switch that I installed on the console to turn them on.

It was a lot of work, running the wires, drilling all the holes and then securing the wiring to keep it safe and out of the way, but I have no doubt that it'll be well worth it.  :thumbup:
