Default Clarks Hill Reservoir ... 36 years ago today ...

Hope everyone had a good Holiday weekend. I was just sitting here reminiscing and came across a wild memory that happened 36 years ago today.

It was the Jerry Lewis telethon weekend ( "75" ) and I was staying with a friend and his family at their lake house on Clarks Hill. We lived down the road a piece in Martinez Ga..

Anyway, they had a 12' Jon with a 5 hp something clamped on not being used tied up at their dock. Early that Monday morning their youngest son, my age, ( 13 or 14 ) asked me did I want to take a long boat ride ( a two 5 gallon portable gas tanks and a case of 2 cycle oil including $20.00 cash BOAT RIDE. ) on the little Jon, of course I said yep ! ( Thank God we packed sandwiches for this journey. )

So at sunrise, we were idling out of the cove.

To make a real long story shorter, at sunset we were rescued by his parents on the one and only fresh water coast guard boat or something like it, that I have ever seen. I don't think we would have died but we sure would not have be home for 2-3 days.

If it can happen in a boat on a lake, then we got our tee shirt that weekend. Every time I hear the words Jerry Lewis, Labor Day etc. I think of that weekend, embedded forever.

Speaking of Clarks Hill, how is the water level hanging also how is the bass fishing nowadays? ( I read great reports 2-3 years ago, I believe it was ? ) I would love to drive back to Georgia to visit my childhood friends and do some fishing on a body of water that I have so many fond memories of.

Thanks for letting me share, Cliff
