I guess I miss understood, or maybe it was a trial run a couple years ago that the state tried out :tipup:

It was only open for 2 seasons then the people that live/own were complaining because of all the fishermen. Worried about break it's and noise. Kinda like they want it a private lake. This was at the boat ramp. 3 feet of water. We caught 25 or 30 in about 3 hours between 3 of us. Second year they had it open for hardwaters. That place is an amazing hardwaters fishery. I'll bet money there's a few state record togue in there.

Fishing is easy. Catching is the hard part.
