While the Minnesota DNR and county water patrol officers cracked down on boating and drinking over the weekend, there is also a focus on getting Jet Skis off the lake before sunset. In a special safety program called ÔÇťOperation After Hours", water patrol officers throughout the state are warning those on Jet Skis about the law on "hours of operation."

People on personal watercraft cannot be out before 9:30 in the morning, and one hour before sunset. Over the weekend, Otter Tail County boat patrol officers warned several people on jet skis around Lake Lida that they were in violation of the evening rule.
