What happened? Looks like a wave came and washed over the dock.

I don't know. All they're saying on the forum is they had some big winds last night. That lake is around 20 miles wide so I'd guess they can get some big waves.

It also was not tied up right, so it could not float freely. I did not even see any bumpers.

Those bays can collect a lot of water during and after a high wind. The "Dead Sea" can be very strange. I was out on the lake about midnight fishing for walleyes when we were far out and lost all lights and even the depth finder was not a help to find which way to go and hopefully find some lights. Fortunately not many rocks in that lake. Ice out is really strange when the wind gets a 20 mile sweep to move those huge sheets of ice on on top of each other, on shore, into cabins and closing roads.
