Hey Guys, <BR> <BR>We were just scoping out Bass Lake and the Pines Resort. On the website, they claim "We have virtually no wind, or wind chop on the lake. Sailing is almost non-existent." <BR> <BR>Just curious....is it true? Is this a good place to throw Double ups all day? <BR> <BR>There apears to be a nice resort on the water.

Just from my experiences, they do not allow boaters on the water before 8am so at 8am its a free for all. I'm not sure if this is still the case. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by cavlxenvy on May 09, 2008)

Jarrod, <BR>Bass lake is really small and narrow. I have been on it a couple time and it was windy as hell.Tha last time I was there (few years ago) the pwc had their own area so they werent in anyones way except themselve. <BR>The pines resort is pretty nice to stay at, a bit pricy but worth it.

we built a house up there and the place is a bathtub. if u had the lake to yourself it would be sweet.. but. it is a bath tub. <BR> <BR>what movie was filmed there? it was the one with John Candy and Dan Akroid?

DUDE! The greatest movie of all time! <BR> <BR>THE GREAT OUTDOORS!!!!! I watch it every year right before summer starts to get me pumped.

jarrod 05-09-2008 3:45 PM

oh wow, that's the scene of the great outdoors eh? Cool stuff. <BR> <BR>Bathtub......enough said. Thank you.

JRod...trust me, do NOT plan on riding at Bass Lake. Its a beautiful area but like Ryan said they have a 5mph restriction from 8pm-8am and the infinite amount of tubers are on the water waiting for the clock to strike 8..chop ALL DAY. I gave up on riding on day2 of a week long family vacay.

jarrod 05-09-2008 3:54 PM

thanks Dave. <BR> <BR>I'm sure closing it off for an event would be out of the question too.

cavlxenvy 05-09-2008 4:54 PM

J-Rod - I think the people that go there would never allow that.

I have had the same experience as Dave. One thing that he didnt mention is that if you dont have a lake permit you have to get one which cost about $60.

j rod send me an emial and ill, lead you to the GLORY LAND that is NEAR BY!!!!

IT COST A TON JUST TO HAVE YOUR BOAT IN THE WATER. The sheriff's patrol and charge you by the foot and horsepower of your boat. It cost me almost $70.00 just for the permit to have my boat in the water. $10.00 launch fee. The chalets are alright @ Pines Resort. <BR> <BR>8AM the lake is packed. <BR> <BR>The only good thing is live music at the wateredge at the resort on Fridays. The local bar can be fun too. Water sucks.

spin2win 05-10-2008 2:13 PM

J-rod. i have a cabin up there and have been going up there ever since i can remember. on a week day in the morning and toward the night you can get some decent riding in but not real great. Tony Carrol is a good friend of mine. i took him up there once like 2 years ago so just ask him about the lake hahaha. on the weekends its constant 2 foot chop. i don't even take my board with me anymore. its a great party lake for the big summer holidays(memorial day, 4th, laborday) but other than that its a worthless lake.
