    How do you avoid hazards?

    I'm still fairly new to this and our jet skis have only been off our own lake a couple times.
    Is there a website where you can go to find out about hazards or areas to avoid on lakes & rivers?

    The very first time we took our skis to another local lake we were fortunate that a local man approached us as we were unloading and told us that the lake was awesome for fishing but is deadly for anything except slow-moving, flat-bottom boats.

    I bet he said that because he doesn't want jet skis on his local lake. Seems fishy

    I don't know, there are some smaller lakes within an hours drive of me that are VERY shallow.

    Later I asked around. That lake, like many in Northern Michigan, is a flooding that 100 years ago was a forest. There are stumps everywhere just below the surface.
    If the launch doesn't kill you, landing head-first into one will.

    I find it odd that there are books, maps & online info about all the fishing hotspots in lakes, rivers & streams--but no data about shadows, sandbars, boulders & snags that can wreck your boat and worse.

    Be safe out there.
