Image walking out of your cozy cottage’s living room or master bedroom to the large screened porch overlooking beautiful Osprey Lake and watch the migratory Hooded Merganser Ducks enjoying the warm southern water. Savor a cup of coffee as the sunrise reflects on the calm lake water and then make your first cast of the day to catch a Large Mouth Bass for lunch.
