I can take some time off from work in June (a Tuesday - Saturday).
The 16th-20th are out because of work commitments..
Thought I would pick the collective brains here on which week would be best based on tides and moon etc...
I will be wading mostly but a friend (Big Dave from Acklins group) may bring his boat down.
Any ideas would be most appreciated.
Give me a call if you still have the phone list from Acklins. I can help there.
If Dave brings the boat it may open up a lot of options.

I am going to try to leave Tuesday afternoon June 20th for Chatham.
The next few days (June 21 -24) I will try to use some of what I have read here on getting out to the flats etc.
Are any of you going to be in Chatham during this time period ?
Let me know . I would like to see some of the Acklins vets again.

Jim Sims will be around. I think I'll miss you as I start my vacation at the end of your visit.

Fred are the tides better the week you are down there ?
I am not sure which tide predictor to use for the area...
Maybe I could fight with work and change the dates and meet you guys down there ...
I will work on it...

If I stay through the 1st Saturday lets fish together.... what day are you coming up ?

You got it. I fly in the 30th and will be out there that evening or the next morning.
Frank, I'll be on the Cape thru 29 June. Give me a call sometime, 814.671.1768. Next week the tides rock. Fishing is very good. Would love to l;inkup with you and Big Dave.

JimS, FredA and Dave17
Got in touch with Acklins Big Dave... he said he wants to go to Chatham the last week in June for a few days when I am going and you all will be there..
I am looking for a motel/hotel that is not too far from Chatham with a decent (read that cheap) rate....
Any ideas ?
thanks and hope to see you all there...
Call Matt at the Stone Horse and tell him you are with the Forum for a good rate and a nice room.
Count me in if I can swing it!

Appreciate the info....
Looking forward to seeing some of the Acklins vets.... what a great group!
Hope to see you there

All booked... thanks Juro... glad to help a sponsor and they seem like really nice folks...
Jim Simms is staying there as well so you can always get the inside skinny just by walking to their unit.
The routine is simple... stumble out of the Squire, then to the motel. Wake up and stop at Larry's PX for breakfast (5:30a open).
Get gourmet sandwich packed for lunch on the beach at Chatham Village Cafe (400 Main St) and they also have great espresso to flush out that swill they call coffee over at Larry's. :eek:
Get to refuge by 7:30a. Take Rip Ryder to the hinterlands.
