Does Lake Conroe have a speed limit after dark? It seems like I've heard of one, but I can't find anything on it. I know there is a no wake rule around the bridges.
The thread about having your life jacket on when the big motor is running got me to thinking. The Big Bass Classic is this weekend and I want to get to my spot, before first light. I don't want to break a rule in the process of getting there. Any info would be appreciated.

Drive to the conditions. There is no need to be doing 50+ in the dark. Get up a little earlier
and get there safe.

I do not think there is a enforced speed limit.

Appreciate the advice, but still wonder, if there is a lake limit. 20 mph might be breaking the law.

This is what I found from SJRA.

"Control of Speed. It is a violation of these Rules for
any Person to:
(1) operate a Vessel on the Reservoir at a speed in excess of a “No
Wake” speed within one hundred feet (100’) of any Private Structure,
Marina or other lakeshore facility or bridge, any moored, anchored or
occupied Vessel, or in an inlet in which people are swimming;
(2) operate a Vessel on the Reservoir at a speed in excess of a “No
Wake” speed within fifty feet (50’) of another Vessel, Personal Watercraft
or water skier (other than a water skier towed by such Vessel); or
(3) operate any Vessel on the Reservoir at a speed in excess of
minimum planing speed (the minimum speed at which a Vessel will achieve
and maintain a level plane) during the period from one half-hour after
sunset to one half-hour before sunrise."

I have driven 15 to 20. Although, there are some guys that just haul arse.

If you want, send me your spots and I will sit on it until you get there... smile

I am going down Thursday or Friday.

Thank you. Number (3) is what I thought I had heard.

I've only been fishing till noon so it will be a guessing game on the afternoon bite for me. Hell, any bite is usually a guessing game for me on that lake. Haha

Good luck this weekend.

Be careful... there was a sunken/submerged house boat this past weekend about 50' yards from shore. It wasn't there the day before so, pay attention. Never know what's in front of you running at night.
