Thought it might be interesting to post-up what bodies of water you have enjoyed boating in with YOUR OWN BOAT. (maybe some of us will run into each other on the water next season) List your primary spot first.

My list:

-New Jersey..........pretty much every area including the Delaware river, Great Egg Harbor river, Barnegate bay, Lake Hopatcong, Greenwood Lake, Budd Lake.
-Lake Winnie, NH
-Lake George, NY
-1000 Islands NY and Canada
-PA, Lake Wallenpaupack, Raystown lake, Blue Marsh lake, Lake Aldred, Schyukill river.
-Maryland, Chester river, Elk river, Northeast river, C&D canal and upper Chesapeake bay area.
-Virginia, Lake Anna, Smith Mt lake.

Is it April yet? :)

Good thread, Dave.

For me:

Primarily Lake Maspenock, MA and Lake Ossipee, NH.

Also Walum (sp) Lake in MA and Lake Winnipesaukee NH.

And Lake Wylie, NC once a year.

I haven't had my boat there, but I've spent plenty of time on Lake Mohawk, NJ too.

By the Way...shouldn't it be "Opossum Kingdom"? That's what we call 'em up here in Canada. Eh?
