Fishing, Eating, Fellowship and Fireplaces

Alan Clemons enjoyed Noxubee Lodge too.

Alan Clemons enjoyed
Noxubee Lodge too.

I could not help but smile as Noxubee Lodge came into view. The graceful farmhouse was a welcome sight. A reminder of simpler times, I pulled the screen door to reveal a large porch. The next door opened into a huge parlor. The warmth of the massive fireplace, the creak of the wood floors and the smells of the kitchen greeted this old angler. This was going to be no ordinary fishing trip.

Oh, there is hunting too. Ducks visit the 300-acre duck swamp. Deer and hogs are everywhere. Turkeys roam the farm as if they own it.

Venison tenderloins and roasted duck, dressed our plates that evening. The desserts were as good as the fellowship. This old redneck slept comfortably that first night.

The in-room coffee was a blessing the next morning. Wondering into the dining area, I found venison sausage-biscuits awaited my arrival. (Yes, I ate again.)

We ran down to “lake one” to test the waters. The morning bite was slow due to the cold front. However, we managed a few bass before lunch. (Yep, still eating.)

Our hopes were higher for “Big Lake” that afternoon. We managed some bass to four-pounds. Returning after a coffee break, the fishing had slowed a little. Jeff bagged another bass over six-pounds.

The next morning’s trip was a nice surprise. Twenty-two bass, visited the G3 boat. A quarter ounce Road Runner rigged with a BanG Shad was the ticket for Alan.

Lunch was a hearty crawdad bisque, and deli sandwiches.
We passed on the skeet shooting opportunity and returned to the lake. The bite was slower. However, Jeff hooked a bass over seven-pounds. Jeff won the battle and breathed a sigh of relief.

Are you ready to book your trip to Noxubee Lodge? Imagine hunting hogs in the morning and fishing for hogs in the afternoon. If 10,000-acres of first class fishing and hunting appeal to you, click this link. Who knows, I may be see you there.

    Your words paint a pretty picture. I can almost smell the sausage and hear the crackling fire.

    I couldn’t help but notice the lure in the mouth of that bass. I am realy anxious to try those Road Runners you sent me for both largemouth and smallmouth.

    Road Runners work in MN as well. The smaller version works on monster crappies here when they are deep late summer.
