The board has ask me to set up a few suggested guide lines when placing fish structure into Shawnee Lake.
First of all, almost any type of structure is going to help the fish population in our lake. But you must consider more than just the fish, when deciding the What-Where-When to put in structure. Whatever the material is that the structure is made of, it should be flexible, not sharp and be secured as well as possible. Keep in mind that even though you may be putting the structure in at a no-swimming or boating location - there is always the possibility that someone may disobey the rules or accidentally slip into the water in that area. So keep in mind the safety of anyone and everyone when locating where to place fish structure.
The other main concern is the reliability/lifespan of the material used to secure the structure. Even though “zip ties” are easy, inexpensive and seem strong, they will break down and crack in a very short time due to exposure to water, sun and extreme hot or cold temperatures.
Another issue is whether you are installing structure at a personal lake front property of your own, or would like structure placed at an Association property such as one of the common area docks. ANY structure placed in a location other than YOUR personal dock, MUST BE APPROVED BY THE SHPOA BOARD before being installed. This is not only for liability reasons, but also that plans might be to have that area (maybe a dock) worked on or replaced in which case the structure might interfere with that project. So be sure and check first!
Some recommended “tie down” materials would be aluminum or stainless steel wire, electrical fence wire which is less expensive than the previous examples and is galvanized which will hold up to the wet conditions longer than regular wire.
REMEMBER - MOST STRUCTURE IS GOOD - BUT ONLY IF IT SAFE!

BOATING SAFETY CLASS WILL BE APRIL 7th
Once again this year there will be an Approved Safe Boating Class at the Max Powers Community Building. To register call 937-382-1096. Cost is $5. The class will be held on April 7th, and will run from 8 am to 4:30 pm. This is an excellent opportunity to become certified as a person who has passed the required Safe Boating course.
Keep in mind that passing this course is mandatory for many people wanting to operate a powered craft on ANY lake in the state of Ohio, including our own Shawnee Lake. See details below.
Boating Education Law:
No person born on or after January 1, 1982, shall operate a power craft powered by more than 10 horsepower unless the operator has received a certificate for successful completion of an Ohio approved safe boating course.
