I have never gotten a ticket, but I have been stopped a million times to make sure I have my proper things on board. You had to do something wrong to get a ticket, or hell who knows maybe you caught him on a bad day. Some riders screw it up for everybody and give us a bad name. Also bron1c do you fish off of yours all the time? How is it, I have thought about it but felt kind of stupid

My girlfriend's baby shower was today so some of the guys went to the lake. We were tubing, and I was driving. The lake was pretty full. Of course there were you typical jerk pwcers cutting in front of boats, and some boats going the wrong way. As we were going towards what turned out to be the busy end of the lake, I cut through two boats 100 ft apart who were just stopped in the "race track" of the lake. I was going maybe twenty. The cop stopped me and told me it was busy and I was tubing, I agreed it was busy. Then he told me to not cut through the boats, I reminded him it was busy , I was going slow and asked for his suggested path. He started laughing like I was a jerk. He told me to go on the outside. I said "Closer to the shore than I already am? Are you looking to give me a suggestion for you to write me a ticket later?" He shook his head. We stopped tubing until it slowed down though, didn't want any problems. (water tickets are misdeamenors here) He just signaled us out since we were the only people tubing behind a ski.
All good though, beautiful day.

0 tickets....I run for it! The lake patrol cops on my lake are 18year old kids doing summer work. plus they have nasty little tri-hulls with a 50-75 horse outboard. i think they ony go 35. If i haul enough azz i have enough time to make it to the other end of the lake, dock, back my trailer in, load up, and drive off then when im pulling up and out of the park then the "cop"(kid in lake patrol uniform") comes crusing in and im long gone!

dont know location, but in michigan: pole in water/no license= ticket. plus if they want to hard they can confiscate equipment until fine paid (court) including vehicle and gear. only seen this done by dnr(state) not county guys.
weve got the 150 ft rule too.
