Resort info needed.

Just wondering if anyone knows if Butch and Nev's resort on Geneva has a website? I have looked here on the internet but with no luck. I tried calling several times but there was no answer. Anyone know if they are still open?

I doubt that they have a web site. In fact, I don't know if they are still operating as a resort. I know that they are trying to sell the property. Hoping to entice someone who wants to tear it all down and build a few townhomes, from what I understand.

Lots of other resorts in the area, though!

Thanks Woodland,

I know there are a ton of resorts in the area, however I used to go there with my mom and dad as a kid every year. As I got older I stopped going up there with them cuz (God forgive me crazy.gif) I wasn't a big fisherman at the time.

Now that I got hitched I was hoping to get back up there with the new wife.

Hey Hermy,

I think Butch and Nevs is like a lot of the older resorts that found themselves in a situation where they had some cabins that were in deserate need of updating, on land that was worth more as a piece of real estate, than they could ever make operating as a resort with old cabins. So they are trying to cash in.

We hear the story each summer, people that have great childhood memories of vacationing at resorts, that are now townhomes, associations or "private compounds". They are now starting the same traditions with thier own families, after realizing how valuable a week at the lake can be.

Make sure you do your "homework", when looking for a place to stay!

Good Luck!

Steve

Hermy, why don't you take a look at Woodland resort on Miltona. They are FM sponcors and Miltona is a great muti-species lake.

Hey Woodland,

I see a lot of people talking about your resort on Miltona. My parents just bought a place on Miltona and I'm kinda new to the area, but I was wondering exactly where your resort is? Thanks. By the way, we were out there on Sunday - Tuesday and fishing was pretty good.

KK,

Woodland is on the east side of Miltona, about 1/2 mile north of the golf course. We have the tan colored units.

Where is your parents place? Miltona can be such a fun lake to fish, and the water is super clean. Its nice to let the kids play at the beach or drag them through the water on a tube and not have to worry about swimmers itch, alge, etc.

By the way, fishing was good last weekend, for you? Mostly targeting walleye, or did you find the slabs?

Stop by and say hi sometime!

My parents place is in the Sandy Beach area on East Sandy Beach. We targeted the slabs in the morning and afternoon and then Walleyes during the twilight time. Are the crappies just starting to move in or are they on the way out?

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
