My Experience At Onondaga Lake

My own experience at Onondaga lake was the best time ever. I would have to say, they best part there just had to be fishing. I don't know why but I find fishing very fun and relaxing, until you feel a hit, and then your in a situation whether its panic or just calmly bring the fish in. That was my experience at Onondaga lake.
