While we are on Okauchee, here's something else Bill said, "I saw quite a few fishermen who came to Okauchee for the first time because of what we wrote. Some came from as far away as the Chicago area."
"I was kinda sorry to see this," he said. "Nobody on any lake has much of a chance the first time on it or even the first few times."
More and more we realize that this is perhaps the first big mistake most anglers make. We have made it, too. One reads glowing reports on a given lake. This is it, we say; off we go expecting to catch 'em anywhere in the lake, and of course, we get little or nothing.
Learn Your Lake
We can't stress this too much. It isn't a secret, but it is practised by only a few, and they get fish. Make a resolution for 1965, LEARN YOUR LAKE.
