Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I chose Lake Murray as my retirement location. I have been a bass fisherman all of my life, but got hooked on the Lake Murray Striped Bass, and now that is what I fish for the most. I enjoy catching Largemouth Bass,, Crappie, all species of Bream, and Catfish, but I am now mostly dedicated to Striper's. I won Angler of the Year in 2010, in the oldest striper fresh water fishing club in the US.

Why the Owner Chose Chapin:
I have professionally fished most of the major lakes east of the Mississippi. This is one of the best lakes I have ever fished for just about any species of fish, except Smallmouth Bass and Lake Trout.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I fish the lake over 200 days a year. I can tell you where the fish are, and what they are biting. Our location is really unique if you are looking for privacy and serenity. There is no road noise, no nearby neighbors, and a lot of wildlife in the yard, e.g. deer, turkey, ducks, geese, squirrels, rabbits, Blue Heron, Egrets, etc.
