  1. Per Dave H. , Billy Trimble will need to start his talk at 6PM SHARP as he is headed out of town right afterwards. If you are interested in hearing his presentation, please be there early.


    • NO FISHING OUTSIDE THE JETTIES…………….. UNLESS I GET TO COME! Glad to see your going to make it. Cant wait to see the Panga! KT will be in town and he can give you some good data on your boat as he has been using his now for two years! Are you coming in early to pre-fish?


      • That’s TBD but I’d definitely like to do so. If past club outings are any indication the conditions will always be better the day before or the day after the event. 😉


      • So I just booked my room at the Lighthouse- I went ahead and booked check-in for Thursday and checking out on Sunday. That way if I fish Friday I’m covered.


      • Glad you signed up George. Is it true you are fishing with J. W. Dickle and Dick Trickle? Jeese the last time you were on the water the brown stain your boat left when you pulled the drain plugs in the parking lot smelled like an early morning sunrise in Bourbon County Kentucky! Jus Say’n!

        Hey all you other fishers be aware Ill be pack’n! No running any of MY SHORELINES -OR- I WILL KEEELYOU!

  2. Dan – Looking forward to seeing that pretty new panga out on the water!

    Golden – my drain plugs only pi$$ excellence. And fine small batch bourbon. Which is also pretty excellent.


  3. Hey Dave – Will be great to see you out on the salt! I’m a little nervous with my casting instructor watching my double-haul… Bring some of your delicious craft beer with you but leave the 7x tippet at home!


  4. Going down early to pre fish. Friday for sure, Thursday is doable if others are going to be there.
    Forecast for rodeo Saturday is sun, light wind, hungry fish & cold beer.

  5. Looks like we may have to do another “NOT THE REDFISH RODEO OUTING” Friday.
    Anybody up for a small calcutta to raise donations for the appropriate liquid sacrament(s)…..


  6. Okay folks,

    Boats are finalized for the most part.

    If you haven’t paid, you need to either contact me to make arraignments or visit the PayPal link.


    • Current boats are filled up unless another boat owner signs up or brings his down. We do have a few people talking about bringing their kayaks.
