This will be an interesting post.......I also remember going down to Herrington Lake and renting cabins. We would use my Gramps's boat and we'd also rent one. I remember going out one early morning with me and my older brother. He was driving and following close behind my gramps when another boat passed by us in the other direction. The wake came at us and my brother aimed right at the wake. If anyone remembers those old flat bow wooden rental boats. He angled that plank of a boat just right that once he hit the wave, it came over the bow like a tital wave and drenched me. Now granted I was probably 7 years old, but it seemed like a huge wave to me. I got started fishing and never stopped. My Granny and Gramps are still with us to this day and at 35 years old, show them pictures and fish with them every chance I get, but due to their health and age......those days, I am regretful to say, are few and far between. They smile and say that they are glad that they were able to pass along the gene.
