    Oscoda is nice place to boat. You should come up there for the July meet.

    Chad, this has been my place to hang since I've been two years old. I've had the best times of my life on this quiet stretch of river. Other than Jasper(I will make my way to the delta ) I have no need or want to travel anywhere else. There are fish you would not believe..................

    Once the HST is back together next year I'll run you to the dam Chad, I can melt your face off in some of the corners.

    We did Cooke on Sunday and loved it. Not a super long run, but beautiful shorelines, and a few nice spots to pull up without being washed off the beach by wakes from offshores and cuddy boats. Cappy, we turned around just before the island. When I don't have a chart handy, and my depth sounder's 8-foot alarm starts beeping when I'm outside the old river channel, I start to get nervous.

    I have no regrets. Had a great time with my wife and daughter.

    Off the north side there are a few logs, but it's a clean approach anywhere else. The south end across from the hill is the best to park.

    It's the 8 foot logs I worry about. Sometimes they rise from the dead.

    Cappy, I'll be sure to visit the island next time.

    That little ramp by the Cooke Dam is a real bitch. It's not level from right to left, and I had to back my trailer wheels past the end of the last concrete slab get the boat on and off the trailer. Good thing they dumped all those rocks at the end of the ramp.

    Yea, it keeps the riff raff away though.
