Just some thoughts.
My brother from Ga. was with me in the boat in the secondary channel by Browns NPP.We were sight seeing going about 15 or 20 mph. He turned and said you just missed a stump by 10 feet. I said thats imposible its 20 feet deep out here. I had to check it out and turned around. There was about a 3 foot stump that had broke lose and was floating down river. Me and him dragged it in the boat.
My other brother has lake property in Paradise Shores and I've seen logs the size of a torpeto rounded off on both ends washed up. There was half a telephone pole washed up.
Anybody flying around Wheeler Lake at 60 mph plus has got more nerve than me.
You also have to think about the kids that don't know anything that might be out there.
I'de give this advise to anybody new to the area because there are some serious hazards in a moving big body of water lined by trees.
