No Chow
Taking into account of very little interest to fish with chow at our lakes we will discontinue allowing it. I wanted to try and see if it was something we wanted to pursue on a regular basis and our fishermen did not like it, the fish did not take to it, and the lack of interest by the fishermen surprised me. I would rather have our fish hit on a variety of baits then to be stuck on one bait in particular. Thanks to those who did come out.
