UP-DATE- Rip trip 6/7

So far I only have 8 people including me... the list I have now is Striblue,JimS , CSJ60, Craig, Shadfreak (2), flyfreak and Creighton(friend of JayM)...... The initial weather does not look good... but I will NEED ALL to commit on this thread by Thursday... I will not have Keith go unless we have our numbers and I know that there will be no drop outs absent some serious matter. Even if all commit I may not go with 8 people and just reshedule for mid- summer.

Thumbs up Weather looking up!

Just heard the forcast for the weekend. Now they are saying sunny and 80 degrees for Saturday. Keep tying those rip flies!

Jay and Creighton are IN

Went out with Juro (as part of a larger guided trip) last Saturday and with his assistance, sighted a 38" blue on the flats. What a fight on my 8 weight - went through half the backing. Which is why I can't wait to get back out there......... unfortunately Juro's camera was lost in the saltwater after all the celebrating so no picutures exist (felt very bad for him).

Jay, I regret the loss of those two 30 second videos of that INCREDIBLE bluefish and that EPIC battle more than the camera itself, a bag of bolts can be replaced but the images of that magic can not unfortunately. I have an idea of how to do that justice though, more later

The fact that it was sighted in a couple feet of water, led, and teased perfectly was one thing, but to battle a fish a hundred yards away in a blink, thrashing and leaping with pogie cutting blades for teeth, and being landed was quite another!

That was awesome from the moment we saw the pod to the moment of it's release. Although the digital portrait is not to be, the mind's eye will never forget that fish and the battle you won.

In any case, congratulations on an incredible flats fish. It's no wonder I see one-legged gulls more often with beasts like that roaming the shallows. :eyecrazy:

Is there still room on this weekend's 6/7 Rip Trip? I would like to attend and if we're going to 10 people may even have another.

I work with Jay M. and last weekend we were out with Juro who told us about the trip.

Saturday's Weather forcast

Mostly cloudy highs near 70 degrees. Sound promising, but you never know.

With evj263 and his friend that would make 10 and we have our quota.

What do you think John?

I remember my 1st rip trip well. I was new to the bunch, couln't cast for beans, I'm still no pro. Anyway, some of the group was hooking up regularly and strip as a did I could not buy a hit. Some of the guys helped me out and showed me the correct presentation and bang. Quality fish in one of the most scenic spots I've fished. Wish I were going.

OK... here is what I have... Me, JimS, CSJ60,Craig, Shadfreak (2), Flyfreak, Jay (he is back in ), Creighton and evj263.... Now I will contact Keith tomorrow anyway but we will not know if the trip is on until Friday... I don't know when but I will contact keith... I am holding this number firm until tomorrow... then you are committed absent a family emergency... if we are not on because of weather or more importantly wind.. then I will still ask Keith to do an early morning south beach trip... If there is any possibility of afternoon wind that would force us into a death march I will suggest cancelling... I am not up for an 8 mile walk at the end of a long day down there... but for now it lokks good. more tomorrow. FINALLY, to save TIME>>>PLEASE CHECK THE PAST POSTS ON THE TRIP TO KNOW WHAT TO BRING.. THAT IS THE PAST YEARS POSTS>>>NO NEED TO REPEAT THEM HERE NOW... Food for lunch, water, Travel light, Cell phones, walkee talkeee, the right clothes and the usual for a day fishing... I will bring the cigars and ramsome for anyone captured by the amazon birders.
