Bobby’s Fish Camp

Bobby's Fish Camp 

We had been hearing about it for years, and we finally got to see it – Bobby’s Fish Camp! Yep, we pulled in yesterday and tied up to their dock, not really knowing what to expect – would there be showers, food, power? There were no other Loopers there (although there was an old boat called Grace tied up alongside, but her wear-and-tear suggested that she hadn’t seen much action for quite a while).

 …Bobby’s Fish Camp had everything (although on a bit of a smaller scale)! There were power stations (both 30 and 50), a little “bath house” with a single toilet and shower (with lots of hot water), and a very kitchie restaurant where we shared a great meal of (you guessed it) FISH with our Canadian friends (remember that cool little blue boat from one of my previous blogs?) who showed up a few hours after us.

What FUN!

    Ahh… Bobby’s Fish Camp! Such memories. It has come a long way; POWER. Several years ago the water was very high so the line to the dock was closed. We had to cart fuel in our dinghy from the pump on the hill to our Sea Ray. But stayed for a karaoke party. Bobby was around then and quite a colorful character. Your blog takes us down memory lane. Thanks for taking us along.

      Hello Jack, It was a true pleasure speaking with you. Thank you so much for your kind words and offer of help. Boyd and I have just arrived at Dog River and are planning on getting a few bits and pieces done on Bushranger, so we plan to be here for a little bit. I hope you and your family stay nice and warm and have a lovely Thanksgiving! la
