    Well,we spent our first summer in Florida, its too hot for me & the wife. Looking for a place where we can live on a house boat from June to Oct & where I can still shoot trap. We don't want real estate--a 50' + houseboat is our cup of tea. We saw Page Az on Lake Powell, but I thinks its way to hot. Thinking abour Watkins Glen or the Kentucky Lakes.

    thanks for any real input.

    The Reno group used to go to Campbell River, Vancouver Island for that period. Good 4 trap club and wonderful salmon fishing.

    Kentucky lake is awesome and since you already know what humidity is I think you would like it. Fishing is fantastic

    You might look into the White River lakes on the Missouri/Arkansas border. They are highland reservoirs built on the White River. (Beaver Lake, Table Rock, Taneycomo, Bull Shoals and Norfork on the Norfork River which feeds into the White.)

    Depending on what you like to fish for we have black bass, white bass, crappie, striped bass, walleye, bluegill, catfish and a few other species.

    Our prices are very competitive and there are a number of nice shooting clubs available in the area, depending upon which lake you settled upon.

    Fair warning though, our last two summers have been very hot! A number of days over 100. But, they have been considered very harsh summers.

    If you have any questions please feel free to contact me by personal message or email. Martinpicker

    We don't fish, the clean up on your boat is worth the time & effort--the cat & myself are the only ones who eat fish--the boss won't eat anything that comes out of the water besides, lobsters, crabs & clams.

    It's hard to beat houseboating on Lake Shasta, CA. Great summer weather and very low humidity. Lake Tahoe is also fantastic.

    Come and check out the great state of Michigan! Too many nice places for a houseboat to list here. Beautiful summers and perfect beaches that you can legally walk for miles. Many nice places to shoot, especially on the northwest side. Bill

    50' houseboat......I'd spend the next 5 summers cruising each of the Great Lakes.

    House boats are not sea worthy, we lived on a trawler for 6 years & did 30k miles, the Great Lakes can be a bitch--we got hammer going between Potosky & Frankfort. Houseboats are floating Winnebago's.
