The launch fee at Lazy is VOLUNTARY.
I know LOL! In 30 plus years of fishing, my 2 weirdest encounters happened hours apart on different lakes. The one on Fox I stayed calm the whole time and I just couldn't believe that guy but the one on Lazy made me really nervous. I would much rather deal with an angry entitled guy than a possible Jeffrey Dahmer LOL! Lazy was really bad we could not catch fish at all! But here is a video of my little guy having one of the best days of his life last week on Lazy.

I had a weird encounter today from someone that I think was with the lake association if Fall River has one. I was bringing my boat in and the guy just kind of stood there in front of me and didnt say anything for like 10 minutes. He then told me not to power load my boat (I didnt) then he started looking in my truck and at my plates. I tried to be super friendly and he was very short with me. I didnt know if he was a police officer or a super creeper. Also I didnt realize there was a launch fee it is new this year and I never noticed it so he had me pay that which I was happy to do. It is very hard to explain this interaction but it was weird AF. When I tried to bring my boat up the guy just stood right in front of my truck and didn't say anything and didn't move and I had to swerve way around him. In the end he appeared to be a guy from the lake association but I had a kid with me and I felt threatened by his creepiness. I cant explain it but it was very weird I had this bad feeling that this guy was going to try something he was super strange. If someone from this lake association sees this maybe do some training on how to approach people or something or maybe just dont approach at all like this.
I agree Bass Abductor, this little lake used to be a great time. Was a lake that made guys think bass fishing is mindless. Can't chuck a worm or frog blindfolded and catch a fish. Lots of those big fish get taken out during ice fishing season. This little lake is resilient for sure but the pounding it takes first ice is hard to watch. It will rebound eventually, when we get a few years the big lakes lock up early and people have more options early. Still a fun lake to bring the kiddos, plenty of gills to keep them entertained.

Sure miss the glory days of Lazy, sounds like fish story but 2 best days out there we caught over 25 bass over 18 inches in couple hours. Caught some legit 22 inch 6+lb fish back in the day. Not saying it stinks, but compared to what it used to put out very disappointing. I fished the spring tourney out there several times after the great fishing was over, I can rememeber out of 20 boats there would be maybe only 3-5 bass over 18 inches caught in the 8 hour tourney. Great place to get out for bass in April since it is open year round for bass, but I prefer trying for smallies on river since Lazy can be challenging these days.
