        Can I make a suggestion? What about the 21st? I haven't checked the tides(even though it's usually the opposite from one weekend to the next).Maybe we can take a vote for dates.

            Yeah,I figured.Like I said,it's usually the opposite from one week to the next.I just know I have another event in Daytona that weekend,so I'll have to choose between the two of them.I was really hoping to have my cake and eat it too.

              the problem Doc is the tides. we want low tide at mid day for were we are going. you can't even get into jack's cut until 3/4 hightide, and it's a very cool spot. this way we get to cover two closeby beaches ,and still go to a restaurant/bar. this is the reason I feel this area is the best, and the tides for that day make it perfect. If we go to a barrier island,say ossabaw,for example, tides are irrelevant, but we are stuck out there all day with no place else to go. it's not close by anything. at this location, there will be easy access for people from out of town, great little boat ride,and never a boring moment. right now,so far,there are 3 boats from out of town,and 9 local boats that are in. your considered a local Doc!

                I fully understand the tides and when I asked about the 21st,I was merely provoking discusion for a new date.I guess I'll have to skip Jeep Beach 2011 for the first ANNUAL Savannah Funament.[8D]

                    How about puting up the list of names/boats of those who have commited to show up. If there is a roster of names who could be possible shows then someone could contact them and maybe stir a little more interest. There may also be some who's ride is a work in progress and may not be ready on these dates. Therefore someone could have the opportunity to buddy-up and offer to share thier ride. These are just some ideas for consideration. If someone has the time, talent and willingness write out a plan and delegate!

                    I'm sure we all can pitch in to make some contributions so no one will have to carry the whole load. Let me know if I can help.

                        Since the topic of tides has come up, can someone please explain to me the thought process of planing a fishing trip around the tides, every time I fish the ocean I get all screwed up by the tides, have trouble launching, just get anchored and the boat swings around and I am in a different area than I wanted. etc... When is the best time to be on the water fishing? Low high? or in between. Thanks....

                          Dave, there are alot of variables to that question. for us,in ga., offshore fishing,depending on whether or not your trolling for game fish or bottom fishing, tides really don't matter that much. inshore is a whole different game,evrything revolves around the tide. and around here,launching at dead low tide always presents a minor challenge. certain trout drops are known for best fishing on either a incoming or outgoing tide,for example. either way, in our case for this function, the tides are perfect for what we will be doing... hop on a plane that weekend and ride with us!!! I can pick/drop you off at airport and you can stay at my house if you choose to come. your only expense will be your roundtrip airfare[8D]

                              we could also camp out for the night on the beach over at Jacks cut, we spent 4th of july out there and it was a great time.

                                Middle of May is not too bad for camping out,but to do it in July,you're a real trooper.
