Now if you could pull off the bank restoration project and a cover project that'd make that lake even better for you and everyone that uses it.

a lot of people swim in the north end i would only hope it was not my kid?

I guess ALOT of people need to read their Watercraft and State Park LAWS!!!

1501:41-7-03- SWIMMING IS PROHIBITED...swimming, bathing, diving, and wading is prohibited from any boat except if the park has a designated boat swim area!
The designated boat swim area at CJ is located at the East End of the lake just below the campground area.
If it was your child, IT WOULD BE A TRAGEDY!...BUT you would be responsible for BREAKING THE LAW!!!

We will not put any cover in the lake that will be near any legal swimming areas or areas not allowed by the ODNR, Parks Dept, and COE!

Some of the best fishermen I know, have inexpensive tackle...just because you buy the best equipment doesn't mean you are intelligent or a Good fisherman!

Hey Steve, I went out this morning and tossed around a few of those ideas we had and I think it will work out well!

First lets start by saying that ALL cover that is being placed in the lake is in coordination with AND FOLLOWING all rules and regulations set down to us by the ODNR and the Core Of Engineers. These rules pertain to safety of boats, fishermen, and swimmers that use the lake. They are regulating and monitoring all locations as to depth and placement of cover as well as the type of structure being placed.

This is not some half baked idea , it is well thought out and well planned and well manned.

Second, no one here thinks your anybody.

Third , if you have to have a 180 dollar rod to catch fish then you need ALOT of practice.

Intimidator,Spfldbassguy and easytobeme03 on your reply to the musky hunter. I had a conversation with people swimming last year at the boat ramp,they must think the same.

That's why I worry about "Elmer Gander Gator Hunter", if he's breakin poles at CJ then he must be fishing in the wrong areas for Gators. All of the cover that has been put in prior to this year has been GPS'd and are mostly laydowns. If he had "Any Kind" of electronics (which Gander sells) he would know exactly where the cover was....and it's not on the Humps, double humps, or out in the middle of the lake at all. It's clearly defined and in mostly in areas close to the bank, except along the tracks and the N campground...but again, clearly marked and easily seen. I mean, if I knew cover was present in an area that I wanted to fish, I may stop trollin' and cast a lure to catch Mr Gator...so what this tells me is that someone either doesn't know how to use electronics...or has no idea at all what they are doing...either way, that's just more Gators for others, who know how to fish with cheap equipment!LOL

Ironic perhaps that all were placed in 8- 15 fow; looking at a map that alone previously elminated about 85% of the lake. They were GPSed among other reasons so persons trolling could choose to AVOID them if so inclined. (Apparently most were willing to atleast "skirt" their edges...) But they still aren`t the "super magic bullet" some think they are individually; strategically placed enmass this CAN (and WILL ) shortly change the fishing yet again for a substantual period of time. Keep in mind it is so much harder to put together a completely volunteer privately funded (ie NO taxpayer expense) effort of this type than to attempt to tear it down and redirect it for your own reasons (?) Consider it done...

Fished for a few hours today and caught 3 NICE Fat LM close to "newer" cover that was put closer to the rocks and is now in about 5+ (??) foot of water! I imagine the sun heated the rocks a few degrees warmer and the LM were using the cover to ambush anything coming up to get warm or to check the cover out!

so update to my previous post some pages back, i started looking around the house figuring out how i could make the structure for the club and bam it hit me, how many of you guys have cats and get cat litter in the plastic 40 lbs containers, well i have 4 containers empty(fiance thinks i collect them since they are great to put things in) as of right now, my idea is to fill it half way with concrete slide 2" pvc through precut holes in the lid spaced out at different angles and such, the upper half of the container im going to drill 1-2" holes on the sides and a 1-2" hole in the center of the lid for minnows and such to go in. figured id share this for those who have cats might wanna try something similar, ill post a pic for reference once i get it done.

Thank You for the offer but the ODNR and COE will not allow the use of tires or metal to be used as cover in CJ....Milk Crates, PVC, Plastic Barrels, and Wood are ideal for the "Project" if you run across any of those!
GOOD FISHING! Brent

If anyone attended the "Meet and Greet" and didn't turn in a map with general locations, quantitiy, and type of cover that was being built...please send me a PM so I can fill one out and contact Debra to get locations OK'd.
If you did not attend the meeting but want to be a part of the "CJ Cover Project", please send me the same info...what type of Cover you would like to build, how many, and where YOU would like to put it in the lake!
Thanks! Brent
GOOD FISHING TO ALL!
