I no longer have a yak, so if anyone is taking a boat, I would like a ride.  If that does not happen, I can rent or borrow a yak.

Okay I'm in... will be fun!

Any idea how far it is from the Stingaree to Yates Bayou? Looks like about 1.5 miles to me... might be a fun place to paddle into.

Took a look at the signup sheet, Pavon has signed up twice... he must be very excited!

GDS
Is that a strike indicator or a bobber?

Whoops!!!  ;D ;D ;D

Signed up twice - I guess I really want to go.  Anyone thinking about taking a boat?  I need to make preparations for a kayak if not.
