FISHING -- Idaho Fish and Game has produced a well-done series of four videos on angler etiquette. Yesterday I posted Part 1.

Here's Part 2, Boat Wakes, which explains long-time practices among local anglers for both boat drivers and shore anglers.

The bottom line:

  • All boaters need to be aware of their wakes.
  • Every angler needs to know how to be safe around boat wakes.
