What the heck happened?????

Drove by the place yesterday and noticed that the lake is drained and that the buildings have been vandalized. What a shame. The place was owned by family friends back in the 70s-80s and I spent a lot of time fishing on that lake. Its a shame to see it falling apart like that. Caught several trophy sized bass in that lake.

I drove by there today and it looked like a ghost town. The front building is falling apart. The lake does look like it was way low. I used to fish it years ago and yeah there used to be some pigs in there. I also remember seeing some of the biggest snapping turtles in there. The Bass Barn should buy that place:D. Then only Bass Barn members could fish it:D. I would chip in a dollar or two!!

I feel your frustration SD. That was one of my fishing haunts back in the day as well. Although I never caught anything the size they had hanging on the wall in the welcome shack. I did enjoy the beauty, structure and the peace that lake had to offer. AMEN, I guess.
