All of our boats are half off Wednesday, including Patio Boats!


We have had a few reports of trout caught reported to the marina. If you would like to report your catches, please come to the marina, and we will take your picture!


Anglers are using plastic worms or swim baits. There has been an abundance of smaller size bass (one to three pounds) being caught all over the lake along the shorelines. Senkos have been the most popular bait to use.
