Thanks for the heads-up.. Don't have a shot to head up there for at least a week or two.
Here's the link to the FWA page for updated info:

hello everyone,

the water level is high but not as bad as i thought.

just be careful and watch out for floating debris like branches and chucks of wood.

i saw some saturday on pistakee lake and i couldn't get them to shore (too far out from shore)

thanks for your time

I was thinking I might have been able to sneak out there today but I have a guy coming over from Michigan to do some warranty repair work on my travel trailer that I need to be here for. Maybe next.... Friday?

Let's hope the levels drop and the no wake is lifted. Maybe ffishman will go out Thursday and report where all the fish are for us. Maybe he'll go out Friday as well and we can follow him.
