    Brian - if you just write "9.9" on your motor with a piece of chalk I'm sure you'd get by with it ;)

    Seriously though - I'd be interested. I've fished there a few times over the years, but not real seriously. I've always caught some decent channels during the day. Never tried it at night.

    Count me in! I've camped there many times over the years. Nice, quiet campgrounds. Always had pretty good luck fishing there.

    Sounds good! It really is a nice lake and I hear it is a great fishery as well.

    That would be fine with me. I like camping and fishing there, and is only a couple of miles from me.

    Also wondering does anyone know the price for boat rental there? And are all the rental boats already in the water or do you have to rent the boat and pull it to the water to launch off?

    They have small v bottoms with about a 5 horse motor, and they also have pontoons. I rented one of the v bottoms about 2 years ago and I think I paid about $35 for 5 hours, can't remember for sure. The boats are in the water ready to go.

    Yeah, Brian - I don't think your "50" horse outboard will pass for a 9.9 :wink:
