What do you guys think about more and more public lakes(God made) going private(no access)???

I think they're great if you or someone you know owns land on them!... keeps the riff raff out.

Private lakes are small, and the poor little fish in them are trapped... it's unsporting to fish for trapped fish!

There is and always will be plenty of large public lakes.

Not all of the "private" lakes up in Michigan are small,some of the private lakes are large.I get your point,but who decides who is Riff-Raff(;gatecrashers,random-evildoers)?If I don't own a lake house am I Riff-Raff?Some people that have lake front land think they own the whole lake,unless they dug up the dirt or made the lake from scratch they do not own the lake.I believe the lakes being closed to the public are increasing every year,and that increase is limiting the number of lakes the public can use.
