  • Any room for us??

    Tim and I have been thinking about the get-togather for a while now.

    Before I toss my hat into the ring would there be a couple of empty slots on a boat for my son Tim(13) and myself. There is no way I could bring the Mako down on a bonzi trip like that but could forsee a car trip and camping adventure. First I got to find if theres boat room. Then we will start planning. Thanks dave(tim) Yahoo says it is a 14 hour trip. thats doable.

    I hope someone can pull through. I've already got a full boat, but I'm sure *someone* can get you out there!!!

        Good. I just found out that there is a poker run the same weekend as our event. It won't have any impact on the fishing, but those idiots will be running the ICW at very high speeds. From past experience I keep a full can of beverage near me to throw at them when they try to buzz by five feet from my boat. [}]

          Dave. Tim's on my boat. We'll ask him if Dad can come along... []

          I'll have me + 2, so room for you and Tim. That's assuming I have it back together by then..... [:0]

              Camping along the beach is tough. Henderson Beach & Grayton Beach state parks allow tent style camping but they will probably be booked up.

              Northwest Region

              On the beach, but east of Destin:

              Grayton Beach

              Northwest Region

              357 Main Park Road Santa Rosa Beach, FL

              850-231-4210

              On the north side of the bay in Niceville:

              Fred Gannon Rocky Bayou State Park

              Northwest Region

              4281 Hwy 20 Niceville, FL

              850–833–9144

                    Dave. The boat will actually be in Destin harbor anyway, so Navare is pretty close. Nice beaches there also.

                    I'll bring the foot with me and let you know about the hatch latches.

                      Artie,

                      Matt should have plenty of room on his boat also. We can always take both boats out if needed. It's always fun to outfish Matt when he is sitting right next to you and using the same bait!!! Either way, we ALL will be fishing. BTY, We got completly flooded down in south MS today. 6-8 inches of rain!!!
