X2!

I've seen a few on facebook from some folks, but not too much. Hopefully it's not one of those "what happens at boondoggle, stays at boondoggle" kinda things. :cheer:

Boondoggle? Boondoggle? What's a boondoggle again???

Well hanging out with friends and making new friends was amazing! Definitely makes it worth it! Fishing was slow near the campsite, but if your drive south you could get some really nice fish.


I sadly got skunked, but caught a spec just didn't land it, and hooked up with 2 jacks. One Cut the line pretty quickly after I hooked up, the other fought for 5 minutes before popping the hook.


Jameson Redding hooked up with a jack that dragged him (and my friends and a I followed) for an hour and took him a mile and a half out. Did get these shots of it though.



Overall, AWESOME boondoggle and can't wait for next October!

I managed to loose the camera containing my pictures. I took this one as I was leaving. Met several people I hope to fish with in the future.

Thanks for the pics and report. Sorry to hear the fishing was poor close to hq. Glad some found better waters. Did the locals say the fiahing has been bad? or just off weekend? just curious as to conditions. They have been up and down over the years. wayyyy back un the 70's there was a lot of dredging in the lack that messed up the ecosystem for years, but then they quit and things improved greatly. Another issue had been raw sewage going in, back in the late 70's which killed grass beds among other things. Were the grass beds still there? Any signs of life? or was as FLfishR said, the "Dead Sea!"?

I think it is such a large area with no obvious fish holding structures that it is difficult to fish without putting in a lot of time to become familiar with the lake. That being said, I saw very little bait or bird activity.

The locals said fishing was on fire the week before and earlier that week. But right before the boondoggle it slowed down.
