The one that got away…

We have all heard the story. The ‘Big Fish’ that was right there… and then got away. It was huge! Well at Secrets on the Lake, perched right on the shores of magnificent Lake Baroon, we hear this story quite often. When you stay in one of our luxury treehouses you have use of our canoes and fishing gear to go out and fish for Yellowbelly and Bass.  So we are told by our guests, there is a big Bass that seems to always elusively get away. We have nicknamed him the Baroon Pocket Beastie.

Now looking after our lovely treehouse guests, Secrets Dining on the Deck patrons, and our excited Wedding couples, means George and I haven’t actually seen the Beastie. It’s been a long time since we have thrown a line in the lake! But, we have heard enough of the same ‘you should’ve seen it’ stories to wonder…

For the fisherfolk among you… take advantage of some great midweek special prices and book a few days in a luxury treehouse. Bring your fishing gear and use our canoes to explore Lake Baroon. Or, George is happy to lend you his fishing rods and lures, so you can have a go at catching dinner… or maybe even finding the Beastie. We would love a picture if you do?
