Gunier: Why allow fishing tournament in flooded conditions

Its disappointing that our local chamber doesn’t move their fishing tournament scheduled for this weekend to a date that our lake isn’t at flood stage.

We lakefront property owners deserve more than this.

Really, assuming out-of-area fishermen in a competitive tournament fishing for money don’t respect or follow rules like max 5 mile per hour speed limits, while on the lake.

Boat wakes and wakes from winds do major damage to many of us lakefront properties.
