It wasn't the best of fishing. It certainly wasn't the best of weather but as always it was the best of times with the best of folks. I arrived at 0630 Saturday morning. I talked to some folks then fished the shore at Pelican. Nada. Then I moved South to Blockhouse where I fish with Mr. Ed. Again no fish. Finally in the afternoon I fished Spider with Mackattack and managed a nice 23 inch Summit Male. For most other fishermen the results were hit and miss as well. Winds kept the boats close to the ramp so some of the better places were out of reach. As always the pot luck was a hit. Ribs, Chicken, Porkchops, Roast Beef, Shrimp (Spicy or otherwise), Salads and other stuff capped off by Dee's Cheese Cake. A big hand is due to all who contributed to this effort. http://www.graywave.org/sniffer/applause.gif

It was great seeing old friends and meeting new. Hope to see you all in the fall.

Hey CC thanks for all the pictures. I am glad you had a great time with everyone else. Sorry the fishing/weather wasn't better. Curious as to if SloBoat AKA Sasquatch was there at the fest? Thanks again and I will see you all at the Fall Fest for sure!

The beaches sure look empty of fisherpersons for this time of year. Many people fishing the north and south nets? Usual years, those beaches and Separator to Pelican beaches are almost shoulder to shoulder.

I plan on going in the fall. You should go! Good fishing, great people. We were laughing at ourselves for all the crap we packed that we didn't need but being first timers didn't know what we would need. We rented a fifth wheel to stay in which was clean and comfy. lots of people pitched tents on the beach and some slept in the back of their rigs. This lady, Dee, I think her name was, made 4 of the best cheesecakes I've ever had. You don't need to bring or have much, just come and have fun.

invite your fishin buddies too. its not really the fishing, its meeting everyone again and newfriends for the first time, and like frieda said, Dees cheesecakes are the greatest. the potluckand bs around the campfire is what makes it so great.
