As the sun rose on that early July morning the kids at Camp Idema woke with huge anticipation to catch Big Earl. Big Earl was the largest, meanest, ugliest fish in all of Lake Thunder. There were many fishing stories told around the campfire about this creature. An award was posted for $500 Big Earl’s head. From the littlest camper to the biggest camper they set of from the docks to try to catch this beast of a fish. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>One by one they came back after a long hot day of fishing. Only to sit around the campfire and tell there own story of how they hooked Big Earl but he got away. Until next year. </li></ul></ul></ul>
