Default Lake Burton

Anyone fishing Lake Burton lately? Hard to find any type of reports on this lake. Been a few years since ive been. Plan to camp there this weekend for a few days.

That place is a nightmare on weekends and holidays if the weather is nice. There was a boat accident there this past weekend involving BUI.

Typical of most lakes unfortunately. Nice weather but at least the water is still pretty chilly. shouldnt be too bad this early in the year i hope.

Lake Burton is to small for the boat traffic it has, and it is already bad. Been jet skis and tubers for over a month and them dang wake boats. It is a real nightmare on Friday thru Sunday.

It's only bad when it's warm and the weather nice. Best time to go is when it's cold and wet and to miserable for most people. The worst time is when school lets out for summer.

Had a kid on a jet ski come within 15 ft of us while fishing a few weeks back. He was as wide open as the thing would run. About 8 am on a Tuesday morning.

That was probably spring break week...just a prelude to a much worse summer school break.
