Here's a note from Bobbi about the buoys by the island . . .
" I wanted to let you know that Tom switched out the fair weather Island Buoys with the Winter Ice Spar Buoys yesterday. These ice spar buoys, located at the dedicated GPS locations for the buoys on file with the WDNR, will act as place holders during the winter. They extend about a foot above the surface of the lake. This will make returning the fair weather buoys to their exact location much easier in the spring. Thought residents should be aware they will be out on the lake in the winter. "
