View Full Version : School is finally out

05-22-2010, 11:43 PM
Well, my wife finally ended her school year and we celebrated by driving up to the camp, which is about 12 miles south of Magnolia, Arkansas, and going bream fishing for a couple of hours last Friday evening. There is a nice little lake about 2 miles from the camp that is only accessable by 4 wheeler and my father in law keeps a boat chained to a tree. We stopped and got us a few crickets on the way up. We fished for a couple of hours and kept 17 huge bull bream, 1 catfish, and 1 crappie.
We are headed over to Cypress Lake at Benton Monday morning. If all goes well we plan to stay over there, in the RV park, until Wendesday afternoon. Going to try the crappie and throw out a few noodles for catfish. Might even try the bream too.
If anybody has been to Cypress lately, I would appreaciate any feed back.

way to go Pastor.....sounds like no one has to show you how to have fun...sounds like you and the Mrs are really enjoying yourself and that is good.......seems like I remember reading "enjoy the fruits of your labor" from one of my favorite Books....congrats on the catch and hope you do well at Cypress....I never fished there......used to have an uncle that had a restuarant up there in Plain Dealing.....remember going there as a kid.....I passed over Henderson Saturday and thought about the pics MO SLAB posted recently.....lot of boats out and it did look pretty.....may have to re-think my decision about not going there until next year......

enjoy your time off.........

Thanks for the "good luck" wish Bruce. I think I remember reading that thing about "enjoying the fruit" of your labor somewhere too.

Thanks for the offer, Mark. I think I have enough of them to keep my eyes busy though. Don't want to put out too many; then it becomes more like work. LOL.

We are mainly wanting to get away for a couple of days for some time of spiritual renewal.
