    Default Matanuska lake

    Was thinking about heading to Matanuska lake this weekend and wanted to know if anyone has been out there this year and how the fishing was.

    That used to be one of my favorite ice fishing spots. I can't bring myself to go back out there after that psychopath dumped that poor girl's body in that lake. That lake will never be the same for me after that. I wish they would have let the Dad have his way Israel Keyes. That guy didn't deserve the privilege of determining his own fate.

    Gotta admit that I sort of feel the same way.

    I agree, I'm a little creeped out by that lake now after what happened. And I wouldn't eat any fish out of it either.

    Having two daughters (17 & 21 yo) I was glued to the story as it unfolded in the media (self reflecting about my own children and the what if). May Samatha Koenig rest in peace. I am sure her family and friends are still distraught over her death.

    I have only fished there twice. The lake will forever be associated with the horific event and have a certain gloom for me, not sure I could fish there again.
