There are quite a few campers along the shore of the lake here this weekend. This morning, that area was pretty much filled. More will likely arrive today and tomorrow. Many are hooked up to services, while others choose to erect their tents and park their trailers, 5th wheels, and motor homes on the shore, as near the water as possible. Many people are bringing their boats of about every description that you can imagine, while others bring their personal watercraft, such as SeaDoos and canoes.

Personally, I think more people have more success fishing from a boat than the shoreline, but I don't plan to go on a boat. I sold my aluminum motorboat, and kept my inflatable one. Then, I discovered it isn't suitable for anyone rowing with oars, as when it gets windy, and the water gets rough, it's just about impossible to row to shore again. Then, you have to be rescued. My inflatable will not take any kind of motor, since it's inflatable all around, and has no place to even attach a batter powered trolling motor, so, unless someone invites me out on their boat, I will just be content to fish from shore, or not fish at all.
One can buy lots of fish for what a fishing license costs. But, I really do enjoy fishing, too. I guess I will just wait and see how things work out.
I hope everyone has a safe weekend. Use your head and don't do anything you will later regret.
Don't drink and drive, your car or your boat. The life you save may be your own, or that of someone you love. Just remember, anyone who is killed or injured in accidents, is someone's mother or father, son or daughter.
