Went out yesterday morning. Water wasn't as cold as I was expecting. We did a few footing runs and finished off with some skiing. No other boats on the lake, piers weren't in, beautiful flat black water...couldn't have asked for anything more for the first runs of 2012!

Saturday, March 24, in the Western suburbs of Minneapolis. My buddy and I can not recall ever skiing in Minnesota in March. Other than two fishing boats taking a couple of laps around the lake we had the lake to ourselves. A couple pictures to prove it. The first picture is me, second is Scott showing the date of March 24 and the third is Scott in action. A great start to the season.

We were on Bryant Lake in Eden Prairie on Saturday. Early season PR by a couple of week for us.
My hands didn't even get cold. Crazy.

It was actually surprisingly comfortable, but we all still wore drysuits. It's going to be a great (and early) summer if the temps stay warm enough to keep the water temp up.


I was out on Lake Nagawicka on Sunday March 18. Water was cold but It was nice to see a calm lake without all of the summer jet ski's and tubers

Are you running the full line line length? I would suggest 15' off, to get the flatter part of the wake. With the flatter wake it'll be easier to maintain a better body position as you cross the wakes, try to pull the handle all the way to your hip. Very impressed you are braving the elements!
