GDSutherland:
I'm planning to make the trip, but commitments at home prevent me from arriving until saturday morning. Looks like I'll miss the Firday night mosquito fest, but I'll be there as early as I can on Saturday morning.

Planning for light winds and hungry redfish.

C'mon, ya'll... sign up and line up!
