CAROLINA Clave?

Get on priceline.com, find a cheap fare - this is way too fishy to ignore! This November - don't hang 'em up, give them one last workout... 20 lb albies!

I used Friday Nov 4th thru Monday Nov 6th as a starting point for the airfare search.

There is a wealth of knowledge in the links to the posts made in the earlier stages of this discussion... particularly from Steve Moore, MattB, Nathan Smith, etc...

Maybe Capt.Dave can help us out too.

Man the thought of 20 lb albies not to mention other species in November, and I assume the temps will be moderate - what a way to kiss the already phenomenal 2001 season goodbye!

This is going to be one of those trips you look back on and say wow.

Juro, Temps could be moderate by Mass in November standards but I wouldn't count on fishing in a t-shirt. Last year it was warm enough on the mainland, but I spent a few days out at the hook pretty well bundled up.

Matt -

You mentioned free camping on the shore, I like the sound of this. Can the tents be set up where you get to the action?

Does the shuttle drop you off there?

thanks

Juro, we didn't camp out there, so I don't really know what the deal is with camping, especially out where the albie fishing is('the hook'). I know the allow camping on other parts of the island, but the hook is somewhat restricted(no oversand vehicles) so i don't know if camping is restricted too.

The shuttle will take you right to the hook for an additional fee, usually it's $15-$20 a head to get out there, but it seems pretty arbitrary, one day we got charged $30 a head just because the place we were going with knew that the other ferries weren't running that day. Bottom line: the ferry situation is pretty much the antithesis of what you'd expect if you're used to the orderly way in which the rip ryder is run. One of the ferry drivers was notorious for just not showing up at work some days.

Juro,

We talked about this W-A-Y back during the Casting Clave. I had pretty much written off the Idea on an NC Clave for 2001 & was thinking about 2002. But, if there is serious interest, I would be swayed. I think what my work out best is if 4-6 people are really interested, they could go this year & get the scoop (& Fish!). Then maybe do something on a Larger scale in 2002?

My $0.02

I honestly think a clave for shore could be a waste of time. Matt experience there last year I would call the exception. The hook is pretty good but they may not swim past. You could spend a few day for nothing. I would really focus on getting a boat.

I don't know if I can make a trip down there. I have this September trip to CO. It is a great trip though and I wish I could go with you. Also Camping on the hook is illegal. You can seek there at night but if there where a bunch of you I am sure the rangers would spot you.

Good feedback Nate, BTW - we're talking November. You should recover from all that fishing by then, no? }>
