Lake Freeman and Shafer Information

This may be a little early since we have the Monroe tournament next Saturday (4/25) but here is some information for anyone wanting to go up to Shafer / Freeman and scout out the area:

We are going to be doing the sign up and weigh in at:

Big Monon Camp Ramp

4816 N. West Shafer Dr.

Monticello, IN 46960

Mngr.: Bill Burton

(574) 870-3066

It costs $10.00 to launch here, but they can handle up to 50 boats, and they have reserved the date (5/2) for us. Unfortunately it is a single lane ramp, but if we are all efficient we will make it work. They also have a concrete pad to park our trailer on. Bill also said he would have a golf cart that will transport people from the ramp to their trucks. There is a 8 boat bass tournament going out that morning, but he is not letting any other groups reserve.

We have a motel that is at a golf resort. This  place looks pretty nice and has a lot of long parking right in front of the rooms. They have 50 rooms and they have had some bass tourney guys there in the past. There are no outside plug-ins, but they have no problem with running a cord from your room out to your boat. The cost including tax is $84.00 a night. If we can get enough guys that will stay, we are considering doing an early sign up on Friday night to help with the tight situation. The local Prom is going on that weekend and most of the other rooms are taken up from that, so you might reserve your room soon. This motel is about 2 miles south of the Monon Ramp. Here is the information:
