Summer has come to an end, but your boating season doesn’t have to. Autumn is prime time to be on the water, so grab a jacket and jump on board. Need convincing?


  1. The Lakes Are Less Crowded: Kids are back at school and families are packing up their cabins, so take advantage of the open space they leave.
  2. Fall Fishing: The fish are actively feeding to prepare for winter, making fall peak freshwater and saltwater fishing season.
  3. The Beautiful Scenery: There’s no better place to watch the trees change and appreciate a natural watercolor painting than on the water. It doesn’t get much better than a cozy sunset over golden trees on an empty lake.
  4. It’s Better for Your Boat: The less time your boat lies dormant the better on your engine, batteries, circuitry and pumps. Most insurance companies have a Nov. 1 pull-out deadline, so take advantage of every day you have.


Safety Reminder: The air is colder and so is the water. Make sure to pack warm, wind-resistant clothes on every trip, and be aware of weather and water conditions.
