A good way to cool off on a hot and humid summer day in Central Minnesota is to “go jump in a lake.”
During an 87-degree day on June 25 several St. Joseph Rod and Gun Club members took advantage of the club’s beach at Kraemer Lake.
While their mothers visited in the shade, three children, brother and sister Khloe Junglen, 9, and Parker Junglen, 7, swam with Tryg Hansen, 8. They also enjoyed floating on a large inflatable.
“I like jumping in the water on a hot day,” Khloe said.
“I like coming here to fish, swim and jump off the dock,” Tryg said.
“I like jumping off the dock,” Parker said.
This is the first year Khloe and Parker’s parents, Brittany and John Junglen, have joined the St. Joseph Rod and Gun Club.
Brittany said they enjoy coming to Kraemer Lake because it is a great spot to fish.
Tryg’s parents, Jess and Brian Hansen joined the St. Joseph Rod and Gun Club about four years ago. Jess said they like how clean the Kraemer Lake beach is.
“It’s such beautiful weather today and we come here as often as we can,” she said.
Jess said Tryg enjoys fishing and has participated in the annual Kraemer Lake fishing tournament.
One of the many benefits of being a member of the St. Joseph Rod and Gun Club is Club Only access to two, privately stocked and managed lakes, Kraemer Lake and Watab/Rassier Lake. The annual membership fee is $25 and current memberships are valid April 1, 2020, through March 31, 2021. The club sponsors an annual ice fishing tournament, birdhouse building event and fish fry.
