[20:35:57] prairiepillow: smelt population is down but there are still

plenty of fish in the lake

[20:37:35] rip: You can really tell the forage base is down, I think I

only caught 3 perch last year

[20:37:36] RoyG(PA): if a person was to wrap himself in fiberglass,

wouldn't that be kinda itchy?

[20:37:38] racer: well i know that but with the water level changing it

was hard to find them but they are still there just not in the large numbers

[20:38:23] prairiepillow: I hope that those of you that would like to

come fish here will try to make it for the get together this summer
