Middle Bass Island Kidís Corner
You are Middle Bassís favorite people. Some of you live here year round. Some of you live here in the summer. Some of you visit. This Web page is for you. First, we have a quick puzzle for you. Can you find the baby in the following picture?
If you'd like to create some fireworks over Put-in-Bay, you can click here.
We know two kids who had a favorite Middle Bass prank. They spent summers on Middle Bass in a house without a bathtub or shower. The only way to get clean was to go in the lake. They loved the lake. They were not allowed to go swimming after dinner. Sometimes, they wanted to go for a swim so badly they couldnít wait for the next day. On their walks to get milk, they would find mud puddles and jump in them. They would get filthy. Then they would get to go swimming. That was their special prank. Do you have one too?
What would you like to tell other children about Middle Bass? What do you do here? What do you like best? What do you like least? What should a kid expect on his or her first visit?

My name is Davis, I am 14. I have been visiting Middle Bass since I was 7 Months old! Middle Bass has changed over the years adding fun additions to the Island. We have a house on the Island and we are there most of the summer. Some of the most fun I had was with Arthur! Other fun things to do are swimming at Hazards and hanging out at J.F. Walleyes!
Message from Chloe (14) on October 5, 2008
Hello, my name is Chloe. I am 14 years old and live in Gallatin Gateway, Montana ( outside Bozeman). My Grandparents live on Middle Bass Island. Before we moved to Montana we would visit Middle Bass a lot. I love it so much!! It is the Ohio equivalent of the Spanish Peaks. I miss visiting the lake and the Island. The people on the island are sooo friendly, from Eddie at the General store to Mary and my Grandma at My Aunt Irma's . It feels like a small town. I love getting spoiled at My Aunt Irma's, where my Grandma works. I love going to the beach or J.F Walleyes and hear my Grandpa sing and play his guitar. I love going out on the boat fishing and swimming with my family. Catching walleye and perch off the boat and watching the waves on lake is a beautiful sight. I haven't been to Middle Bass in about 3 years. I miss it so much. Especially the fire works on the 4th of July. I'm kind of a history nerd, so I love the history of the Islands. I love Lonz Winery, I think it is great that they are making it a State Park. I have a painting of Lonz hanging in my room and look at it every day and wish I could go back. I also love just exploring around the Island!! If I could visit any place I would defiantly go back to MBI!!

Message from Emma (3) on May 27, 2004
My name is Emma and I am three years old. In the summer I get to live on Middle Bass with all 6 of my cousins and my sister. Many of them live really far away in the winter, so it is great!! We play together all day long. I love to throw rocks, play in the sandbox and swim, but most of all I love to ride in the blue swing and do a drop!! My Yaya and Papa live there, too and I love to go to Yaya's house for chocolate milkshakes.

Poems by Mary (13) on August 9, 2003 next message
The lake is my muse
Looking at it lights the fuse
To send ideas pouring through my brain
Pounding through it like a train
Leaving me feeling happy and full
Even though I still feel the pull
Of poetic poems surging through
Big and bright
Black and white
Dumb and noisy
I do declare
There are seagulls every where
From post to coast
And all in between
There are more than Iíve ever seen
Reflective as glass
The lake slowly undulates
Message from Arthur (6) on February 28, 2003 - Webmaster's note: When he was born 6 years ago, Arthur became the first child born to a year-round resident in over 20 years:
My name is Arthur. I live on Middle Bass year round and go to school at Put-In-Bay. I am in the first grade and my sister is Cinnamon who is in 10th.
I love to snake hunt and fish. In the summer I fish everyday off the docks. When i'm not fishing , I am snake hunting or swimming. Last week I caught my first walleye threw the ice with my dad.(His name is Art). My walleye weighed about 3 pounds. I also have a dog, some fish, a firebelly salamander and a hamster. I want a pet snake but my dad won't let me, he's a scaredy cat. I can't wait for summer to see my Middle Bass friends. We have fun snake hunting and turtle hunting!

Message From Adam (13) on June 1, 2002:
I remember last year, my mom and I went to Middle Bass on a nice sunny day. When we first stepped off the ferry with our bikes, I noticed a sign advertising honey. Since we both have a sweet tooth, we rode our bikes all over the island searching for this great stuff. At the end of our day, we ended up at a little store that was selling it. After I took the honey home, about a week later my dad threw it away. He said,"We don't need two bottles of honey in this house. Luckily, the day before I used almost half of it at dinner!
