Made our first camping trip to the stripmines for the year. Stayed in K and had a wonderful time. Got up there wed. morning and had pretty good luck all day. KILLED 'EM on thursday, my buddy and i catching about 45 apiece. Friday did okay as well, but not like thursday. Fished numerous lakes and all seemed to have a good bite going on. Only downer was listening to the generators growl at night. I cant imagine why folks go to a peaceful place like that and then have to run a generator. It would be okay if they weren't so loud everyone else could hear them too. But anyway........ A couple of quick questions.... notice some new signs stating that "this is not AEP recreation land" posted here and there. Especially on the gates. Any idea whats up with that? And also, does anyone know why lake 52 is closed? And how "closed" it really is? I was looking forward to fishing it for the first time, but didnt want to take the chance. Any info would be great Blessings!!
