Manatee sighting

I am riding this morning with Laurie Tisdale, Bassmaster art director, and Emily Hand, our social media editor.

We just had a nice treat when a large manatee swam by the boat. Neither Laurie nor Emily had seen one in the wild before. The animal was massive, and too quick for a good video.

The shoreline of Lake George are marked with signs requiring boaters to idle when close to shore in order to avoid striking and injuring any manatees. It’s a good thing.
