Deep Creek Axe Throwing Company open for business

From The Garrett County Republican

McHENRY — Axes are flying at Deep Creek Lake, but they are not being used for chopping down trees.

The same people who brought Monkey Business Adventure Park and the Deep Creek Ninja Factory to the area have started a new sport venture, Deep Creek Axe Throwing Company.

“We wanted to come up with another activity where families could get active and we thought this would be a great sister activity to Monkey Business,” said manager Jordan Smith. “It is a great stress reliever, super fun and yet another way to get active.”

Reel Report: There’s something for everyone right now

If you didn’t get a chance to take advantage of Maryland’s last free fishing day on the Fourth of July, you should most certainly get yourself a license and hit the water this weekend because there’s something for everyone right now in every fishing hole from the lakes and reservoirs to Ocean City’s shores.

 Southern Maryland lakes and ponds — Anthony Hancock, manager at Gilbert Run Park in Dentsville, said that with the extreme heat there hasn’t been much fishing activity going on.

Fishing early and late with topwater lures is a great way to target bass right now. During the heat of the day, most bass will find the nearest drop-off from shore and hold near available cover. Fishing around low trees and docks with lightly weighted soft plastic baits, jig-and-craw combos or creature-type baits is your best bet.

The bluegill are eager to eat small pieces of nightcrawler or live crickets. Fishing for bluegill early and late in shallow water is productive as they’ll also move to deeper, cooler water during the heat of the day.

Just a reminder that the park opens at 7 a.m. on weekends and 7:30 a.m. during the weekdays. The park closes seven days a week at 8 p.m.
