Good pointer. When I launch I have to stay below a no-wake speed a while anyway, so I use that time to study signs. Very often I'll shut the outboard off and stay put catching bass or crappie. A lot of guys are paying big money for boat power and speed and dang it, before Katie bars the door they're gonna start fishing 20 miles away, leaving a rooster tail at the no wake buoys no matter what's happening there. That's fine with me. Us old timers stick around close, get all we want, and are first back to the ramp.
