Group Fish Fry..... Beautiful Rainbow.....More Fishing

This post should bring us up-to-date.  First and foremost, these first two weeks here at Roger's Old Oak Camps are by far our favorite! Mike arrives with all the truck drivers and takes up three cabins!  Paul and Monica, and Gary and Karen arrive from Mountain Top, PA., The "Darby Brothers!!!"  who keep you laughing constantly, and make sure we have a campfire every night stay in the cabin next door.  Actually - we don't know their last name........but they are from Upper Darby, PA.  Thus, the "Darby Brothers".    And of course Bill and Linda who are here well before us..........and will still be here when we leave.

It was also GREAT to see Cheri Rogers ( she and Dean own the camp).  It was this time last year that she was in Florida having a liver transplant.  She looks great and is doing wonderful. are a few pictures from the last week or so.

Left our usual fishing spot the other day and headed to THE WALL!

Headed out day before yesterday despite the rain cloud formations..

Rich caught a couple of nice Northern Pike......One was 29 inches/5 lbs.  The other one, he didn't weigh, but it was 23 inches long.   Released them back into the water..

Heading back to camp before the storms.......

Nice..........just overhead!!

A view of Roger's Camp, as we head back in for the day.

One of the newest cabins.  This is the deck on cabin 7 where we hang out every now and then...... and here is Rich with Rob and Chris (Darby Brothers), and Matt.

This past Sunday we had our annual group "Fish Fry".  Linda and Bill fried the crappy,  Mike and the gang made an awesome Gumbo........ Salads and Slaw and Rice and Sausage.......................Gumbo cooking below

Rich enjoying a bowl of Gumbo!

Some shots of the group......... Below is Monica and Paul with Linda.

Mike - (staying in cabin 8) who started this yearly event......with Bill and Linda.  Paul in the back........ Paul and Monica always stay in Cabin 7 where there is a ramp for Paul's wheel chair.  He is unable to stand/walk due to a motorcycle accident several years ago. 

Mike always hangs is "Irish" flag (can't see with the wind) and his Pirate Flag!

There's the Irish flag behind Karen and I....Can't remember the other lady's name!!!  She and her husband are friends of Gary and Karen and just joined the group this year.

Group photo!

Some of the guys.......Fish Stories???

During the fish fry we got a few sprinkles.........but we got a complete rainbow over the lake...........Wish I could take pictures like this - but have to be honest, got this picture from the Black Lake face book page.   Beautiful!

This is the rainbow picture that most of us captured!

Everybody taking a picture of the rainbow, or getting their picture in front of the rainbow!

Including Rich and I........

And this is a typical early evening  site.  The Darby Boys getting the fire going for everyone in the cap to enjoy!  

Fishing is a little slower than last year after the winter they had here, and some of the larger fish are still spawning.   But we've still enjoyed both the fishing and the weather.  Fish count to date is 132.   Rich has the biggest, but Donna is still in the lead for count.  74 to 58.
