I am posting this to see if there is any interest.... Those weekend dates are big tides... I could go for a Friday, the 26th...if that works... I will have to speak to Keith....just sign on here...

John, I'm a definite. I'll check with a couple of other guys, including Dave Browne to see if they are interested.

That should be a great time based on the minus tides and potential migration. We have been blownout since last fall. A change is due.

Right now I can't go, but my situation may change in a couple of weeks.

Since the arrival of my new prototypes this is an opportunity I don't want to miss. Count me in for now, I will confirm as soon as I check other commitments.

I'm in. Interested in trying one of them two handers also. I think I'm ready for some changes next year.

John put me down as a definite!

This will probably be my last trip to the Cape this year and I can't think of a better way to round out the season. Lets just praaaaayyyy for a break on the weather front - no pun intended :rolleyes:

Hey Juro - can't wait to get my hands on that new double-hander either:smokin:

It's been almost a year since I've been able to get out there and say yes to one of these, but this time I can make it. I was gonna be out there anyway that weekend with a friend who also was with us last October for the trip that didn't materialize.

Summary: I'm definite plus one (Bert)!

I can probably fit that into my schedule...either day....would need a little advance to plan on it.


08-29-2003, 05:15 PM
I'm in! I can make it on Saturday or Sunday (or maybe both!).


08-30-2003, 12:44 AM
I would very much like to make it. But, only a Sunday will work for me let me know if there is room should that be the day.

08-30-2003, 03:47 AM
I am in . Well that's it looks like we have filled the trip. FishHawk:D

08-30-2003, 08:42 AM
Fish Hawk... we are never quite sure if the trips are filled until the week before... so I have at this time a "priority" list.... Your are in at this time since I can not detremine if Dave brown is in from Jim Sims post... I will do a list as usual with back up list also...

Countme in for either day. I plan to be there at any rate, and a Rip Trip would be a grand way to end the Cape part of my season.

I will monitor the list/alternate list.

Best regards,

John, finally spoke to Dave Browne. He definitely wants to go, but there is one caveat: he has jury duty in September, and cannot guarantee that he will be there at that time. Thus, he should be placed on the backup list. Mentioned that to him, and he was ok with that.

Regardless, he will be on the cape in September, possibly most of the month, but can't commit 100% to the rip trip.

He was indebted to you, Juro and Dave Pearson for your openness in learning the intricacies of SB & Monomoy.

The albies are in his area on L.I. now. He said yesterday there were at least 200 within range. Out of a dozen guys with the long rod and an equal number with spinning rods, 2 fish were landed. Either they didn't match the bait of choice or they obviously wouldn't eat.

Today, they were not there, he said. Go figure.

Jim... I will put him on the reserve list..If you see him, please thank him for the flys he sent me and let him know I will be down during many days in early to mid September, some days during the week and on weekends so I will look for him.

08-31-2003, 03:20 PM
Count me in if there is room.

08-31-2003, 07:30 PM
I'm in if there's a slot; just got told by the Chief of Operations I should put my name in :smokin:

09-01-2003, 05:01 PM
John, I would like to go. If there is room please count me in if not put me on a fill in list.

09-01-2003, 06:19 PM
Just to be clear... first ten that posted are in.. with the rest as reserve list... The list as you know by now changes with changes in plans... so do the math you see... I know no other way of doing this.

Just bringing back to the top.

A couple of questions:

How's the seal population down the point? I think I know the answer based on what's along South beach.

John, did you consider the week of the 20th? You cou fish just about the whole outgoing. Also considering the way things have gone this year maybe you could get four try's for at least one trip over the two weekends.

09-08-2003, 11:17 PM
Fred ,that's a good point... I could not make the least I would have to check it out... I will post the roster tomorrow night

09-15-2003, 02:30 PM
I'm out. Stuff tying up remaining weekends in Sept.

09-15-2003, 05:11 PM
Dave, tell us the truth! Furyk needs you again:D

09-16-2003, 11:00 AM
:D :smokin:

John, I can't wait for the southern swing to start again; in the meanwhile, if I can find a club job somewhere between Naples and West Palm, I could get rid of some of these shoulder aches! :whoa: ;)
