The fishing and the weather have been great. The panfish are hitting hard and our bass fishing folks have caught a number of 7-8 pounders. Pete’s Fishing Club of Covington, KY; the McLeod group from the Florida Panhandle; the Allen team from Clyde, NC; many of our Georgia friends; and half the town of Ozark, AL have all had great trips.
Terry Stege, with the help of Jim Carrick, is handling the Camp. Jim Stege is around on weekends. We’ve recently reorganized after putting much faith into some people who are no longer with us. And, in the longer term, we are looking once again for that ‘perfect’ couple who would like to manage and run the camp while living here in the double-wide across the street.
Anyway, whoever thought it would be easy and that we’d get it perfect the first time around?
The Camp itself is in the best shape it has seen over the past 30 years, the river is healthy, and it is a joy to just be here. We recently received a generous loan of a 10-pound mounted bass caught on the flats to the south of the dock 40 years ago by Bob Allender, who established and ran the Camp from 1946-72. The bass is hanging on the wall of the dock office. Thanks to Bob and his son, Shane!
And thanks to all of our wonderful guests for continuing to pick this camp to get away for some great fishing! Hoping to see you again soon!
