      Daniel, it was a good time. Especially for the 6 year old next fishing next to us. He counted down the seconds, OUT LOUD, until it was 8:00 AM. He got the first ...more cast and first fish! Did you make it out?

  9. 1 of 4 Largemouth caught. These bass are growing up fast. If you fish Glade Run please remember these bass were stocked and for now are catch and release only. Trout ...more are also stocked and if legal are allowed to be taken home. Beautiful lake. Enjoy!

      I agree, give it a few years. Well, there's one way to keep it from getting over fished. From this moment on NO MORE PICS OF FISH CAUGHT HERE! Mums the word. ...more 😎

      Jeff, I think that lake will be great in a few years. To bad it's not a little bigger, it will be over fished.

In 2017 my Wife asked me, "what do you want for your birthday'? I answered, "a kayak". And at that moment, after a 15 year hiatus, the fishing ...more bug bit me once again!
