28 June 1922


Water skiing was invented on this day in June 1922.  Eighteen-year-old Ralph Samuelson of Minnesota thought that if people can ski on snow, then why can't they ski on water?


Ralph first attempted to water ski on Lake Pepin

News Release From BoatUS

Five Tips for Boaters to Get Through the Holiday Weekend

Will July 4th Be Boater Gridlock?
Five Tips for Boaters to Get Through the Holiday Weekend

ANNAPOLIS, Md., June 27, 2016 – This July 4 holiday weekend there will be more recreational boaters on the water than at any other time of year, according to Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS). With almost 12 million registered boats across the country, that could mean waterway gridlock, especially after fireworks shows end and boaters head home. This is not the night to see who can get back to the launch ramp first, and like grandma said, patience is a virtue. Here are five tips – tailored to the specific safety needs for America’s birthday weekend:

1. Wait to celebrate with alcohol: It could be a long day on the water, but waiting until after you’ve returned to home port for the night before celebrating with alcohol is a wise move. Added to the sun, wind and waves, alcohol lowers your situational awareness and increases reaction times.

2. Get a kids’ life jacket for free: Before you think about putting Junior in an adult-sized life jacket for the weekend, here’s a better plan: Go to the BoatUS Foundation’s Kids’ Life Jacket Loaner site to find a life jacket loaner site near you, where you can borrow a right-sized child’s life jacket for the day, afternoon, or weekend. It’s free.

3. Don’t overload your boat. Seems like everyone wants to be on a boat July 4, but how many is too many? If there’s no capacity plate to tell you, one sure sign is standing room-only, a sight sometimes seen where boats gather. One general rule of thumb is that everyone should have a seat inside the boat, and keep in mind that passengers moving around, along with a boat carrying extra coolers and gear, can make your boat less stable.

4. Avoid the two biggest problems. The 600+ vessel, TowBoatUS on water towing fleet reports hundreds of battery jumps and anchor line disentanglements on July 4 – the most for any single day of the year. To avoid having to call BoatUS’ 24-hour dispatch, keep an eye on your battery drain all day, go slow while hauling anchor line and be super vigilant so you don’t run over someone else’s.

5. Be a safe paddler: Paddlers should understand all nautical rules of the road. A glow stick tied around the neck does not substitute for approved navigation lights and is dangerous. Practice defensive paddling and assume no one can see you. Try to avoid crowded anchorages or congested ramp areas, and it’s safest to pass astern of other vessels and let them cross in front of you.

Improve your knowledge – and get a discount on your boat insurance – by taking a free online boating safety course anytime at

Mississippi River Near Keokuk, Iowa

Search Still On For Man Missing After Boat Capsized........


31 year old Tyler Harris is still missing after a fishing boat headed over the spillway at the Keokuk Lock and Dam Friday afternoon. Harris and 31 year old James Son were fishing near the spillway, when their anchors failed, allowing the boat to head to the spillway.


As the fishing boat drifted toward the spillway, the pair was not able to start the vessel's motor, and the boat was carried over the dam.  The Keokuk Fire Department rescued Son.  The boat drifted downstream to Alexandria, Missouri, where residents pulled it ashore.


Responders have been searching for Harris not only on the surface of the water, but with sonar as well.  The search went on over the weekend, and continued on Monday........

What`s Going on At The River This Week

June 30, 2016

Frogging can be done with a gig, as shown here, and the use of artificial light is permitted. Children under the age of 16 are not required to have a permit.


Missouri Department of Conservation

Missouri frogging season begins June 30 at sunset
MDC reminds folks to frog with either fishing or small-game hunting permit, unless exempt.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) encourages Missourians to discover nature this summer -- and one fun and exciting way is through frogging. Frogging season begins June 30 at sunset and ends Oct. 31. Missouri has two frog species that are legal game — bullfrog and green frog. Bullfrogs are larger and therefore more sought-after.

The daily limit is eight frogs of both species combined and the possession limit is 16 frogs of both species combined. Only the daily limit may be possessed on the waters or banks thereof where limits apply. Daily limits end at midnight so froggers who catch their daily limits before midnight and then want to return for more frogging after midnight must remove the daily limit of previously caught frogs from the waters or banks before returning for more.

Frogging can be done with either a fishing permit or a small-game hunting permit. Children under the age of 16 and Missouri residents 65 years of age or older are not required to have a permit. Those with a fishing permit may take frogs by hand, hand net, atlatl, gig, bow, trotline, throw line, limb line, bank line, jug line, snagging, snaring, grabbing or pole and line. With a small game hunting permit, frogs may be harvested using a .22-caliber or smaller rimfire rifle or pistol, pellet gun, atlatl, bow, crossbow, or by hand or hand net. The use of an artificial light is permitted when frogging.

For more information about frog hunting, including how to get started and tasty recipes to try, visit MDC online at
