Clinton Lake Saturday and Sunday 4/12 4/13

Postby Hugh » Fri Apr 11, 2014 5:45 pm

Clinton Lake is now warm enough for no booties or gloves and just a regular 3/2 wetsuit. I kited yesterday for almost 2 hours with a 9m covering 30 miles according to GPS Tracks, without getting cold (but I was careful and despite a lot of jumping did not crash). Several of us will be riding at the marina this weekend, at least Saturday and probably Sunday. Come on down if you want some "warm" water kiting.

I'm thinking about coming down. Don't mind
the lake mich temps but don't think the wind is going
to be right tmmro on the big lake. Maybe not enough west for wolf.
Can't wait for grand haven, muskeg
to open up. There still iced in tho. At one point seem like st joe or the haven(ice free)were gona be good but maybe not.
Make my call with the morning update. Clinton
does sound fun tho...I forgot what a 3/2 is.....

We had a good day. Started on 9m and went down to 7.5 and eventually 5.5 for several. Five kites out, including John from Watseka. Lovely and warm and while a little gusty at times, very good sessions.

I keep wondering what that means? Wolf works on a pure South....
