We decided at the last minute to make one more camping trip before football season. Hit Pine Island with the men of the immediate family Friday about noon and set camp. I first noticed how clear the water was. I was amazed because of all the rain we have had. We had a great time and the weather was good but the fishing was horrible. Pine Island has a great camping sandbar and good swimming for my 5 year old but the fishing is bad there for some reason. We soaked a dozen rods for two days with every assortment of bait known to man and managed one flat about ten pounds and about a dozen gar. I have to find a new spot. Mayfly hatch was on on Friday evening. Lake seemed to be less congested than normal. Good times with my boy and his uncle and grandpa.
