Except that tides are fairly small, in the open ocean, and there are other phenomena in lakes that could be mistaken for tides. And there are precious few salt lakes big enough that you could put an island in them out of sight of any other land, and most salt lakes are easily distinguished from the ocean by virtue of being much saltier.
