News reporting 3 people in boat capsized due to another boat pushing a large wave. 1 person has drowned. As bad as it is I knew it was bound to happen eventually. The boats and waves they create on Conroe are dangerous and destructive.

That's sad, prayers to all involved!

"The boats and waves they create on Conroe are dangerous and destructive"

This a very true statement! I can show you boat sitting in a slip in front of someones house that has Furuno Radar, give you an idea of what size this boat is, at least 10' sticks out from the back of the slip, something you would see at the coast to head offshore in. Blows me away!

We saw the ambulance and fire truck down by the water and figured somebody had drowned

All these damn surf boats that are all the rage are designed to go slow and create a huge a huge wake. It’s only going to get worse on the more heavily used lakes.

Those wake boats with the bladders that fill full of water to push the boat down and create larger wakes are super dangerous for other boats. I've had to get down on all 4s a couple of times on Travis and Austin to avoid getting launched into the water.

Conroe and Lewisville are both dangerous WEEKEND lakes. Both have large party boats and party they do without any consideration for fishing boats. All 3 men wore wearing PFD's but unfortunately one became distressed ( maybe panicked ). Shame on someone.


I am a Senager. (Senior teenager) I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 50 years later. I don't have to go to school or work. I get an allowance every month. I don't have a curfew, I have a drivers license,a PU truck and I have a bass boat.

So why is okay for these boats to go around drowning folks. How do we work to stop this nonsense?
