  1. Oh boy only five short months off! I think I’ll start packing now…Wait this is for 2018. My calendar wont see that far into the future. I’m going back to bed. Sheesh!


  2. Nilo and I were there with Q and Mrs Q on 2017-12-15.
    Fishing was slow, and the water was low, but a good time was still had.
    I like what the new owners have done with the place.


  3. Went yesterday (2018-02-06) with John P. Fishing started out slow, and then the bite picked up, with 3 fish on three casts. It rained. The sun never came out. But the fish were biting, so we didn’t get off the water until dark.


  4. Menu:
    Friday night menu is hamburgers and brats. Puck and Nilo will bring the meat, plates, and charcoal. Chips, buns, etc. still needed.
    Saturday night will be pot luck. Puck and Nilo will bring a crock pot casserole. We need sides, and desert.
    Bring your own drinks please.
