    Picnic & Free Fishing at Hopkins Lake

    I am going to make this an annual event on the free fishing weekend so the date will change each year. It will always be on a Sunday (less crowded). There are pavilions w/hibachis, fishing, volleyball court, nature trail. Sorry, no swimming allowed.
    My "old man" flat bottom boat will be there for use (if I'm not in it).
    Sorry, bring your own tackle and strong arms for the oars.
    If there is enough interest I will reserve a pavilion, if not...first come, first served.

    As an incentive for some competition; I will buy one box of ammo (50rnd-$25) for the person who catches the biggest (longest length) fish. (I don't get beat too often)

    Hosted by: Warchild--Jerry Brewer
    When: Sunday, June 13th @ noon
    Where: Hopkins lake in Gerald E. Collamer park, Owosso.
    What to bring: insert usual list here....

    That pic on the left is ............ very disturbing...
    Gun control isn't about the gun at all.... for those who want gun control it is all about their own fragile egos, their own lack of self esteem, their own inner fears, and most importantly... their own desire to dominate others. And an openly carried gun is a slap in the face to all of those things.

    Yooperlady and I might attend... but if Warchild is looking to catch a fish like this one we won't be anywhere near that lake! Heck... he might lose his lure and want to borrow another one!:what:..........................

    FYI: Just remembered... anyone coming to the lake should come by the southerly route coming from I-69, Perry exit. Take M-52 north appx. 12 miles. Turn right into the Baker college entrance...lake is on the road to the right. You can see it from the drive.

    M-52 is closed at M-21 downtown...construction.

    Sorry for the inconvenience.... DOT's fault.

    I'll be there.
    The use of force is a last resort. One aspect of violence is that it is unpredictable. Although your initial intention may be to use limited force, once you have engaged in violence the consequences are unpredictable. Violence always brings about unexpected results and almost always provokes retaliation.

    Yes, kinda... it's just a bank launch but there are 3 of them. Only one is large enough for vehicle/trailer launch. It's not a real big lake and is posted Electric motors only. I was told it was originally made as a wild life area, so electric motors only and no swimming. It is a rather shallow lake, deepest is 24 ft. in the center portion and very weedy. Great bass habitat... lg / sm mouth, some pike and perch, catfish and of course the ever breeding sunfish and bluegills.
