Will do! We usually head to Lake Mendota, as Marshall Park is literally 5 minutes from our door and I store the boat in the garage all Summer. We put in there and then ski in the sheltered area near Spring Harbor.
However, I'm looking for other options, as well. I've thought about making our way to Lake Monona next year to see how the water is. Do you find it is better skiing than Mendota?
We also made our way to Rock Lake a few times last year and enjoyed that a lot. We went midweek when there was no traffic to speak of. The water was a lot cleaner and about 10 degrees warmer at the time.
Now that the boat has been upgraded, I'm sure we will be looking to hit more of the area lakes in the future. Any recommendations are appreciated.
