  • cut thru south of ponderosa = new skeg gaurd

    Posted by chawchaw on April 30, 2015 at 11:52 pm

    I hit rocks on this cut thru south side of ponderosa island if ur leaving from 4 corners. Another boat zoomed by me hugging the bank of the island. I was in the middle just cruising and all of the sudden, bang. Is this a known area for danger. Id like to continue cutting thru there bc i put in at 4 corners and wanna get to the south side of the lake.

    You have to figure out where the piles are. Most of the rocks I avoid are in the middle and seems safer closer to the island. Now that the water is up shouldn’t be bad. I made it through when the water was low.

    Best bet it to have a safe gps track through it and run the same track every time. Thats what I’ve done.

    There are definitely rocks towards the middle. I usually run about 20 -25 yards off the island. In the spring when the water is still coming up, I tend to idle through the cuts if I am not sure it is up enough. Better safe than sorry.

    I’ve used Blackfin Skeg guard. They offer good protection and can be replaced if badly damaged. It does take serval days for the adhesive to cure.

    I hate cutting through there. I used to cut through there a LOT before I decided to duck hunt it during the winter draw down one year. In the winter time you can walk across that area and there was just a little water in the deepest part. After seeing that I decided to quit cutting through that area. You would be amazed at how much stuff you you see out of water during the winter draw down. It sure helps learn the lake and where you can and can’t go.
