The Wetland

    In the summer of 2010, Nate Herman of Herman Brothers Pond Management had a great idea for the empty field near Clubhouse Lake: creating a wetland designed for topwater fishing!  Before too long, the bulldozer was running and the new habitat became a reality.  A truckload of gravel was added on 7/15/2010 and large rocks were situated to create a forage base and spawning areas for fish such as bass, bluegill and catfish.  In the fall, there will be some plantings to further beautify the area.
