As Resorts owners we have come to recognize one of the most entertaining areas at the resort is the boat launch and dock area.
We are fortunate most of the cabins and RV sites have a good view of this area.
When I came across this great collection of fishing bloopers videos produced by Bill Dance I had the share them with you.
It's always good to laugh!

Rocks from the 20 miles of Finger Lake shoreline.



Almost 70% of North American eagles nest in British Columbia.


Numerous Eagles nest along the 20 miles of the shoreline of Finger Lake   You too can feed trout to Igor the resident Eagle behind your boat. -  Picture taken by guest.
" Each year a Bald Eagle couple will renew their life-long commitment in a courtship flight.  The pair engage in a crescendo of airborne acrobatics.   At the finale of this dance, they lock talons and, intensely mesmerized by each other, share a dazzling and daring free fall from the sky.  For hundreds of feet they tumble together at incredible speeds and then.... just before they reach the surface of the water below, they create magic, opening their wings and break away.  The courtship flight is at an end.  The vows are renewed, and life together will continue. "

What is meant by " Lake Turnover " ?
How and why do lakes do this in autumn and spring?

The key to this question is how water density varies with water temperature.  Water is most dense (heaviest) at 39º F (4º C) and as temperature increases or decreases from 39º F, it becomes increasingly less dense (lighter).  In summer and winter, lakes are maintained by climate in what is called a stratified condition.  Less dense water is at the surface and more dense water is near the bottom.
During late summer and autumn, air temperatures cool the surface water causing its density to increase.  The heavier water sinks, forcing the lighter, less dense water to the surface.  This continues until the water temperature at all depths reaches approximately 39º F.  Because there is very little difference in density at this stage, the waters are easily mixed by the wind.  The sinking action and mixing of the water by the wind results in the exchange of surface and bottom waters which is called " turnover. "   During spring, the process reverses itself.  This time ice melts, and surface waters warm and sink until the water temperature at all depths reaches approximately 39º F.  The sinking combined with wind mixing causes spring "turnover."
This describes the general principle; however, other factors (including climate and lake depth variations) can cause certain lakes to act differently.
