Looking for a third to ski on Lake Buhlow near Alexandria, LA. Still too cold to ski, but PM if you are interested starting later this month or early May. I'll provide the boat.

It is right next to the Pineville Airport. Looks like they dug it out to build the airport. It is public. Used primarily for fishing but drag boat racing is done on that lake as well.
I just moved to Ft. Polk. Scouted the area lakes. This one is protected from the wind and does not have thousands of tree stumps. Nearby is Kincaid Lake. It is stumpy but has some promising areas. Cotyle Lake is also close, but the only ski/wake water is along the earthen dam because of all the stumps.
Toledo Bend is a huge lake on the Texas border. Full of trees and trot lines. Not very skier friendly.
A few AWSA clubs in New Orleans and Baton Rouge but I am limited to a 100 mile radius of Ft. Polk.
