It is pretty rare that I pay a fee to get on the water. As I checked in and plunked down my 5 bucks (ouch) for a day use fee I talked with the lady there. She was very helpful. Found out about the new food place down by the store. I had brought my own park map so with a few finger points I was on my way. The get together wasn't hard to find.
Picture stolen from Gerald of my 2 boats:
This picture was taken a little early, more boats showed up a little later.
It didn't take me long to get antsy and so I launched HYBRID and pedaled across the inlet and let down a couple of trolling lines. There were a whole lot of kayaks out.
This lake is good for that sort of thing.
Devils Water Holes is not far from where the Roundup was set up. I found on the fish finder, that the water is 17 feet in places back up in there. The water up there was fairly clear.
Came back and sat around for awhile. Then I decided I'd give it another try.
Managed to catch 1 nice White bass. Then I decided I wanted to see the bridge and so I pulled the lines up and scooted up lake. On the way there a water skier passed me by and as he did he completed a flip 2 times. Never seen that before.
I tried to get them to do it for the Kodak Playsport but I did not get that communicated.
Made it up to bridge. Rounded the pilings, checked the time and decided it was past time to get back.
Had a better picture but I could not get it to upload.
I first met Gerald in about 2005. He was in a kayak he had built and I was much impressed. It was a piece of art. The 2 kayaks that he brought to the Roundup were absolutely incredible.
Actually all of the other boats that were there were works of art, with the exception of my boats. I am a "ham fisted hacker" and my boats were built for fishing. I really haven't paid a lot of attention to fit and finish.
As far as the light weight competition went, there wasn't really a heavy boat there.
The foot pegs will go in SANDY.
Thanks Gerald and the rest of the crew.
