Update 12/26/08

Saturday, December 27th, 2008

The main lake has opened back up and the ramps at 107 and South Fork are clear of ice. Looking at the weather forecast shows a promising week for fishing. The temperatures should be in the 40’s through Tuesday and then in the upper 30’s to low 40’s the rest of the week. As long as the wind isn’t to bad we should see some reasonable days on the water for this time of year. I bet Lynn would be willing to take some trips out if anyone is wanting to shortcut the learning curve for finding fish.

Winter Rates

Monday, December 22nd, 2008

Just an FYI for everyone. We have finally set and published our rates for the winter. We are sorry for the inconvenience of not having them posted on our website until now. Basically they are 1/2 of what the in-season rate is. Please look at the rate page to see what each category is, because we have chosen to do in-season, off-season, and a winter rate.

In addition, we are thinking about setting up some poker weekends up here to help everyone break the winter doldrums. Let us know what you think of the idea and any suggestions are more than welcome.

Update 12/19/08

The weather has been less than desirable around here this week. Lynn never even got to get out and fish. He is figuring it won’t be long before he will be taking his fishing activities over to Thomas Hill reservoir. One good thing about the weather is that it has really increased the Canadian Goose activity. They have been flying over the resort in huge flocks pretty consistently the past few days. If any of you brave souls want to come up for some fishing¬† we do still have minnows available. We kept them all last winter and plan on having them available all this winter as well. We also have another youth hunt weekend coming up on January 3-4. We will be offering 1/2 price accommodation’s that weekend so you can bring the kids out for one last try at a deer.¬† —— Mary and I, along with Travis and Tom, Heidi and Andrew would like to wish all of you a Very Merry Christmas and a great New Year. Thanks for all of your support in our first year. It was truly enjoyable even though the lake didn’t cooperate most of the time.

Update 12/12/08

We have a new addition for this blog. Lynn Tharp is a fishing guide for this lake and for the Mississippi River and Thomas Hill lake. He fishes year round and does quite well as far as catching fish. He has been kind enough to supply us with information to put on this blog as this time of the year we just don’t get enough traffic through the store to have consistent reporting. He can be reached at 573-267-3420 if anyone is interested in using his services.—— Lynn reports that he is catching crappie on the main lake channels and standing timber. He is using jigs and fishing 12′ to 15′ deep and he said they are hitting the jigs hard. He has been boating about 80 fish per outing with 25 to 35 of them being nice enough to keep with about half of those being over a pound. Thats pretty good fishing!! The water temp is about 42 degrees.
