Most of the time we go to El Vado, but like to mix it up and find the best place for any time of year. El Vado is always really low for Labor Day and we trashed a prop there two years ago. We still haven't found a good lake for Memorial because everywhere is so windy. We went all the way to Powell this year only to get blown off the lake all three days before 9 AM. What about you?
The North Valley in Alb, VERY NICE!!!
Anyways, for lakes in NM I prefer Conchas and Navajo, absolutely hate the Butte. I was there last year and got a ticket that ruined my fun for a long long time, and reluctantly went back over the weekend and this is what happened.. I'm afraid my season is over =(.
Also, I agree before mid June the wind is horrible here, but if you go to Santa Rosa and ride in the channel, it makes for some pretty nice water regardless of wind (but the bass fishermen get REALLY mad, haha!)
A tow rig photo to keep this on track also: (this is my old boat)

The butte is the worst. We've made that trip once in the last three years and I hit a rock skiing and fortunately only tore up my ski real bad and not myself or the boat. We did the same as you at El Vado two years ago on Labor Day. Luckily for us it was only prop and drive shaft. Those pictures hurt to look at.

I'm thinking pics of that vehicle would be quite acceptable.

For Real

I included a pic of our mascot "grouper".
And yes, there are palm trees in Mississippi.

I hope the upload works and enjoy. There will be more to come...
