WI waterskiing, March 21

Thanks to record warm temps, we went from ice fishing to 54* water in 2 weeks. Went out skiing last night, chilly but still fun! Here are some pics... check out that flat wake!

Dues it seem like my ski is riding too much out of the water in my turn?

Wow-you are a brave man. A guy in my office went out on 3/18 but they were wearing dry suits. Just curious, what was the actual water temp yesterday and where are you at in Wisconsin.

Wausau, WI... water temp was 54, air temp 72

Ahh...the coffee colored waters of Lake Wausau. You are a brave man.

Also, he's not joking--I had a customer that was still ice fishing last Monday and Tuesday on that lake. I'll give it another couple weeks before venturing out there. The boat landings don't even have docks in yet.

54 degrees already? That was quick.

yes, a bit ... bend knees more and pull to your hip will transfer weight farther forward to keep the tip lower.

Well that gives me hope that memorial day water temps this year in northern WI will be higher than 62 like last year.

Ice went off of my parent's lake in Hazelhurst (new record for earliest ever) and Lake Minocqua this week. As long as temps stay warm it should be a much nicer holiday for boating than last year.

We will have to pay for these record temps sometime though. My bet is sooner rather than later.
