Fishing Trip Turns Epic
Hello this is Capt Robert Miley, I’m just now leaving Slims Fish Camp, I had a full day of fishing with Ben he is a sophomore in high school just he and I and we had an epic day. It started off like it was gonna be a real bad day black clouds came in. It rained for a little bit then it got flat calm and nothing was really happening. Earlier in the morning, we caught a few up to 5 pounds and then we caught some big catfish.
After lunch, we went back out to one spot out in pelican bay. It was epic for 1 full hour we went through 3 dozen shiners and we had 5 at a time. We put 5 poles in the water, they were going and we did that 4 times and I told the young man nope. We’re going down to 2 poles that was too much work we had a Chinese fire drill. Going means the fish were biting, we were losing fish. The drags were screaming, and we were trying to figure out which was so much fun.
I hope to have him back again next year, and for all your freshwater fishing adventures go to BassOnline this is Capt Robert Miley, creating memories one fish at a time.

The Island offers many activities for all ages: fishing, walking biking, wildlife watching, and camping, Slims Fish Camp is located on this island providing bait and tackle for anything you might need on the lake. there are a few trails for anyone that would like to go hiking and there is also a golf course nearby for those of you who wish to get a few swings in before hitting the water.
