Had a great time at the Lake with Chad,Joel,Ben and John lots of laughs and lots of wind beautiful wild life and scenery and warm campfires. Before we settled down for the night Chad and Joel talked strategy and then Mooch secured the Campsite, I'm sure you be hearing a lot about the first photo.

The wind blew the whole time we were there so it sorta put a damper on the fishing the fishing was good just tough because of the wind. We all caught a few and Ben got a lotta Pussy

Mike, I feel you with regards to the wind! I was at Liberty Glen and it hardley ever quit there too.
I saw your rigs at the ramp friday and today, too late and too early.
Why don't you guys camp at the other arm, somewhere below Bummer Peak? That place is sheltered well.
If you don't know where you're headed, any road could get you there.

Good times!  Thanks Mike for setting this up - always enjoy hanging and fishing with you.

Joel, Ben, Chad - good hanging and fishing with you guys!

I arrived Saturday afternoon, wind howling straight down the lake from the west.  Waited till about 5:30-6:00 and paddled into the wind to camp - nice workout.

Caught a few smallies.  Beautiful lake, hills are nice and green this time of year.  Great camping spot, first time fishing this lake, will be back.

Reads and looks like a regular paddle-in camp-out trip to me.......lots of laughs, fun, fish & GOOD TIMES abroad!
Chad calls me thurs nite for directions, he assumed it was drive in camping. Good to see the boy is turning into a man(maybe?)....did he brush his teeth? :smt003

did any "pinkos" end up breaking the line? :smt004  those paintballs leave marks.

I had grown-up stuff to do, or I would LOVED to be there there with my Real_Family :smt010

Lots of fun and wind. All my big fish were on land, including a 21"lmb, and a 31"cat, both released. I did keep a smaller bass and bullhead cat for camp-grub. No smallies for me, Mike caught 10.
Joel found a new love, a fully auto soft air gun. We had war games in the woods, Joel with his machine gun and me with my crossman 760@ 2 or 3 pumps. He shot me a thousand times, I felt like the terminator. He spent most of the time hiding behind trees waiting for me to fire my ONE bb, then he would jump out and spray me with a hundred. I finally pinged him in the arm. Chad has the aim, when Joel was a bit away from the camp, he took aim and said, Left cheek, and nailed him right in the ass, the highlight of the trip.

You had to be there but we got a few good Catch Phrases out of this Trip

"Don't Point that Fu#@ing Thing at me"

"OW You Shot Me"

"Above Surface Lures"

and my Favorite by Joel "How is it the Second Time" :smt005

I hate to think what you guys would have ended up doing if all you had were firecrackers... remember Adam and the trout?
