This is the time of year when row boating is fun on Big Bass Lake because you can cross nearly any stretch of the lake leisurely without having to outsmart a speedboat. No wakes to worry about either. All this is especially true on weekdays since weekends still might have an occasional speedboat come your way.

In the 1950’s and 60’s, even summer time was not that difficult to take a rowboat excursion around the lake. But make no mistake about it, lake traffic has increased on Big Bass Lake with bigger and better boats not to mention jet skis. I have noticed a few kayaks docked on the lake now. That might rival the rowboat in popularity.

Sunny weekdays for those out on the lake can be fun now. Even those that like to take their pontoon boats out for a spin on the lake don’t have to worry about speedboats darting in and around them. One doesn’t have to be quite as aware as in the summer time of where they are situated on the lake.
