Maybe they thought if they changed the name from Candlewood to Callahan none of us bass fishermen would be able to find our way there!?!?
Politically speaking it seems the CLA (Candlewood Lake Authority) thinks everything that has gone wrong since the beginning of time is the fault of bass fishermen. That includes boating accidents, reckless driving, over crowding, noise pollution, and anything else you can think of. But with two state facilitated boat ramps on it's shores and little proof to back up their allegations it probably won't be too easy for them to get rid of us (I hope).
On Maho I don't know if the association likes us or not but I do know if they want rid of us they need only convince one person. The owner of Macdonald's marina. Which makes their political structure quite different. If they say we're gone....WE'RE GONE!!
My plan....... Pull the brim of my hat over my face, don't rev the engine too close to shore, try not to stick any jigs on the docks or surrounding boats, and hopefully catch a fish or two.
