For the last few weeks I have been launching about 6:15ish and still dark. I have notices boats with no lights. Please take a minute and put your lights on for everyone's safety.

The weak call it obsession, the strong call it dedication!

That's were the lake patrols should be watching. It's illegal as well as dangerous.

I see two or three boats every weekend on Murvaul doing this. It is normally the same boats week after week. They are all old enough to know better as well.

Yep VERY dangerous... try fishing night tourneys and guys intentionally turn their lights OFF so you can't see where they are fishing! have had several "close calls" and they just don't seem to care. and like Elk mentioned if you fish a body of water long enough you see the same exact people "always" doing it so they need a ticket because they are willingly putting other people at risk!!
