I like to fish these flats near Yates Bayou,

N 29.49452 W 94.59660

It is an easy kayak paddle, and sometimes the fish will be sunning in the shallow water in this area at this time of year.

To fish, or not to fish?  What a stupid question!

Bill is looking into a place to stay on Bolivar so that we don't have to fight the ferry/traffic. Please sign-up and let him know if you are interested in staying down there.

Last night Mike Q and Bill L. talked about this trip. 

It is looking to be a good one.  I won't be able to make this one as I'll be out of town that weekend visiting friends at my old stomping grounds.

I like the idea of a place that is close to crash after doing some hard kayaking in that area.  And being clean before going into Stingeree for dinner is a bonus.

So far I only see 2 people signed up.  Even the leader isn't officially signed up yet.

Put the word out, and lets get on the water.

Guys, if you don't sign up now or at least give some indication of interest in staying overnight, we are going to cancel the beach house we were looking to rent. If you are interested, please indicate ASAP!!
