The Rock island in the south east is one exception though.

There are a number of shallow rock submerged humps in the shallow water off Mulhurst Lutheran Church Camp and St Basils Church Camp. They are about 2 hundred meters off shore and only about a foot or so deep this year.

One last place of caution is off Golden Days. A number of years a go a cabin owner was bringing in a load of big rock to protect his beach from wave erosion in the winter. The truck broke through the ice before it got to his beach and they dumped the load out there someplace. The water is very shallow out there along way out so again I don't motor fast in that area.

I set my depth alarm on my sounder at 16 feet and don't motor fast on that lake any shallower than that unless I know the area.
Thanks for the heads up. Really appreciate it. If I decide on there I will keep a watchful eye on my sonar. Mostly I will not motor too hard if I don't know a lake. Plus I've learned a few lessons over the years of fishin shallow (klunk klunk and sand bar just drifting, did not think I needed shallow alarm on ). Does the PP have a dock to tie up at? Only ask cause I have to unload and load, wifey drives straight ahead and parks. No backing up for her. LOL
