This cache was placed for an upcoming event for the new cacher in the family GPS_JUNKY 4. The event was on May 30th. 2009. Just placed to have some new caches in the area for people like "DOC" who got them all from the area all ready. Not quite a P & G but close too it. Tried to hide 20 caches today so the cords might be a little off. If they are, post your cords. I will get updated right away. Oh yea, I didn't have any pens to put in cache, so bring your own.

MANAGEMENT: South Twin Lake has had periodic, partial winterkill conditions. An aeration system was installed in 1989 to help prevent further winterkills and, hopefully improve the populations of largemouth bass and northern pike. The lake has bot been stocked recently and has not been surveyed since 1993.
FISHING INFORMATION: South Twin is mainly a recreational lake. Locals have dubbed the shallow basin "the snake pit" because of its abundant, small pike. There are bass and panfish, too, but even the sunnies are small.
