This is one of the most exciting times of the year for my girlfriend and myself as we look forward to the Catfish Derby each year. I am new to the forums here and want to say hello to everyone. Let me first introduce myself. My name is Maceo and I have been coming to M&M Campground in Clear Lake Oaks since I was about 6 years old. I am now 46. My mom and dad used to take me and my sister to M&M and I have been coming back yearly ever since. I have known all the campground managers they have had since Opal used to manage in the 70's. For those of you who are familiar with this campground, you will be able to relate.
I have fished all over the lake from Shagrock Island to Red Bud Park, to Rattlesnake Island, Kono Tae, you name it!! I miss the 70's when the Crappie used to hit the red and white mini jigs just about anywhere in the lake. We would literally catch 100 of these babies in a day. Im talkin 1.5 to 2 lb slabs. Those were the days...
In any event, I will be at my signature spot Derby weekend. M&M has an automatic lifetime booking for me at space 8 on the campground each year for the derby and for the 4th of july. Space 8 is the space I have been staing for over 25 years. Thats why im called StubsislandKing.
Fishing is my life and Clearlake (M&M campground is my home). Come visit me if you happen to be in the area on Catfish derby weekend. Maybe we can have a beer, chat and get to know eacj=h other. My girlfriend and I will be there. I have a 18 foot MerCruiser 175. I bring it out most of the time with me. This year I will bank fish. I do pretty good on the slough side of the island in mid May when the water warms up. The channels come in shallow at night.. Glow tips work well for sight.
Its good to be part of a family here on the forums and I wish you all GREAT FISHING!!!
