Hugo and Chick have to be moved out by Oct. 31th along with all campers,boats etc. The corp didn't renew their lease.

It is closed.......the word is that they plan to put up barricades at the gate......of course the corp sez they will put it out for Bids..... Right at the beginning of the Duck Hunting season they close it...

Hugo has known for 2 years that the lease was up this year and has tried to work with the corp to get a new lease. He was notified last week that he had to leave.

Our Govt. at work to "Decrease our Sporting Opportunities" on the Land we own as taxpayers...

Is this the ramp by the locks with the little guard shack that you put the code into after hours?

WOW, this comes as a shocker..those 2 have been working their tails off at that park and it looks the best it has ever looked in 20 yrs. Lots of rumors what's going on at the lake, everything from casinos,to canals being dug.Hope this is not going to be used as a staging point for construction?

There is a lot that is fixing to be done in Moore haven. There are plans for a bird watching walkway to be built across the rim canal that will run halfway out into the marsh paralleling the Moore haven canal.

Their plan is to dredge the cut to the monkey box
Pile it up on the east side and build a birding trail
All the way out and. At All the cuts the walk way will
Be high enough to drive an air boat under
They've been talking about that for years
Thou they have dredged to horny pond from
Lake port that was also part of it I beleav

All this and yet there's no clear trail from lakeport lock to open water. I have repeatedly called and complained to the powers that be and no result. One of the markers is completely enclosed with vegetation. And yet they have killed every living plant between harney pond and dyess ditch? Would really like to know who comes up with these plans. Sure seems like they are trying to eliminate recreation on the southwest side of the lake.

Friend of mine was gator hunting in area 601 on the 1st phase and there were 4 airboats spraying for whatever using the grid pattern.
On Monday after the 2nd phase started there were 4 trucks at Harney Pond boat ramp (not sure of the company name) that were
definitely spray rigs, water tanks in the back of 2 of the trucks with chemicals locked in cages. Haven't been back yet to see. Talked to a FWC officer when
I was there and he didn't or wouldn't say what they were spraying for. I asked though.

There is a Army corps of engineers Lake Okeechobee Aqautic plant control interagency meeting in Clewiston on October 17. The public is welcome and I am going to try to go and maybe find out what exactly the spray plan is. In early teal, we also saw a helicopter spraying out in the middle of nowhere. I understand that certain invasive plants need to be controlled, but I see no rhyme or reason to their pattern. Why let willow trees grow up in navigational channels but go out and spray wide open areas?

Several years ago during Duck Season my wife and i were sitting in the trail near Moonshine Bay and a Helicopter flew right over us Spraying . I gave him the "Ole Number One" and he came back and made another pass.

Another Duck Season and another Spray Season for the Tree Huggers...................

they have not sprayed for hydrilla on the lake(other then navigation channels) for yrs.

They do spray for other things like hyacinth and cat tails.

We have it good compared to other parts of the state realize it or not.

BTW, when I was a kid they sprayed the lake with shit that would make you smack your mama silly it stunk and stung soo bad. I'm sure it wasn't exactly good for us to inhale,but sure as hell was effective on the skeeters.
If it was up to me, we would burn it every 5 months and let nature handle the rest...
