LOOKS LIKE DAN IS HANDLING SOME OF THAT. SCOTT ARE YOU OVER AT PHIL'S. I MIGHT STAY THERE TOO IF THERE IS STILL ROOM. HOWEVER I HAVE ANOTHER PLACE TO STAY OUT ON THE ISLAND TOO. SCOTT ARE YOU FISHING FROM YOUR BOAT OR YAK?  I NEED TO SEE IF A SKIFF (GEORGE S.) IS GOING TO BE AVAILABLE. I WILL LET YOU KNOW SOON. I'D REALLY LIKE TO BE FISHING THE BIG WATER OUT BY THE JETTIES IF POSSIBLE. I'M SURE THE TARPON WILL BE THERE BY THEN.

Well hold on a minute- if there are free locations to stay, why would we pay? I've gotten little response from anybody other than Matt & Quigley.

Yes Matt, the Skimmer has been booked.

Chris

Sweet.

Who wants to see about renting rooms here: http://www.rockportbayfrontcottages.com/rates.html

They've got a lit fishing pier and it's about a half mile from where we'll get onto the Skimmer.

Sadly, I cannot get a kitchen pass for this one. The rib has to go to a baby shower for her cousin and I'm on daddy detail. Little man isn't quite big enough to spend all day floating down the river. Soon.

This is still a trip I want to make happen at some point though. It's a nice stretch of river with lots of fish.

Damnit, I forgot my chair at home.

Maybe I'll pop into Academy before I head over.

George- I'm on board with that.

I'll even pop for gas since you've got the offshore-capable boat.

I missed that talk. You'd think they would have a blowout on their merchandise.

Gracias.

I'm in and asked Wormdrowner to unlock this because I figured we need to start making arrangements for carpooling and booking a place to stay because I figure on needing a place for 2 nights because I know I'll be in no mood to drive home 4.5 hours after fishing all day on Saturday.

There are a number of cabin/cottage type places and some of them have lighted fishing piers too. I figured it would be fun to fish the lights at night in addition to the planned trip.

Thoughts?

Some poster on TKF said he went by iFly today and it was completely empty of merchandise and dark.

I'm verifying the availability of a hall pass from the rib for the 10th. If I can get one I'll gladly be the "leader" on this one.

I'd love to but May 1st is a Thursday...

...also- Village Creek is a bit of a hike. I was looking at an alternative I could suggest and what about the Colorado River in Columbus? The old 71 bridge to Beason's Park is only about 6.3 miles. That could make for a pretty leisurely day of paddling & fishing. It's only about 45 minutes for you Katy folk and an hour-fifteen or so for me from the Upper East Side.

I'm in. No little man though.

What are the costs for kids to fish?

I might bring out my little boy and let him fish but I wouldn't really be able to fish myself. He's only 3 and a half so he's not quite ready for fly fishing.
