Great advice for boat placement.
To add to it,
Wind or not, you'll want a motor for the lake end of Cat. A couple things you'll need; a fire extinguisher and registration for the motor. More than likely you will go through more gas than you think. Also, watch out for the sand bars, having a way to check the depth is important so you don't run the motor into the sand/rock.
