We caught scads of bass 4 - 8 lbs on Butchers Creek during the spring spawn and also did very well working points and other deep structure in the fall. We even boated several big stripers on green worms with red tails one fall.

We fished 12-14 hour days out of 14 ' Sears Game Fishers with 10 horse engines and used Ambassador reels with homemade Fenwick glass rods. And slept the sleep of the just in tents at the State Park there.

I remember there was a small tackle shop attached to a motel right off a bridge on the main lake at Clarckston. They sold the first spinner baits I eve saw and also had the first hand made fat plugs which sold for outrageous prices and sometimes were even rented for the day!

Haven't dredged up those memories in years.
