OK - just tested it and it works. JIMW is a superstar!!!

Notes:

The checkbox for "need ride to island" means "need ride to/from island", in other words if you need to get to Washburn or from Washburn check the box.

Also, when Jim gets back I will ask for a couple of minor edits but it will not affect your existing record.

If you have a change or cancellation please update to make room for others if we over-book.

I some how managed to double my entry when I noticed I hadn't checked the attending boxes. Please note I am on there twice in case we start to get full.

Sean,
I did the same thing when I signed on, luckily for me it was a test from Jim and he caught it and fixed it. He's gonna have some work to do when he gets back. It seemed like editing was a problem, but then again, I'm showing way too much of my"computer expertise"! Now, about my fishing expertise, your gonna have to have a quick boat and follow me around to find all my secrets!

Sean I deleted your earlier entry so now there is only one.

Let me know if that is a problem,

Stow away...

Case,

No boat here but I may be small enough to sneak in the livewell armed with a GPS. Feel like giving up some hot fly data. Can we expect them to be on chovies, baby bunker?

Sean

Thanks for the assistance. It never ceases to amaze me how quickly you jump on these things. We need to get you out to the East coast soon so we can repay all the favors.

Sean

Sean, Last year during this period the bonito were dinning on not only peanut bunker (although you could almost walk across the Sound on them) but silversides and sand eels as well. My success came from not trying to match the bait, but stand out from it. Most of my fly caught bones were on Bonito bunnies in white or tan, or surf candies. With the method of casting to the sides of the busting fish and letting the offering drift while keeping ALMOST in contact with the fly. A very loose drag and palming the reel worked for me. When ever I would cast into the pod and try to strip I would break off right away, even with 20# floro. I have found that with as little as 8# floro and the loose drag my success was much greater, provided I palm upon take-off so as to prevent the backlash, many more hits with the 8# as well!
I do intend to have you on board once or twice. Looking forward to it.
PS. the livewell's not a bad idea, it dosen't get used for much else.

I'm in for at least Sat and Sun and will make every effort to be there Fri and Mon as well. I may bring my boat but I'm not sure about that yet. It's only a 12' tin boat w/3hp motor but it would at least get me to and from the island and out to the jetties. I'd still like chance to get on a "real" boat for a couple hours if possible. I'll help out with some food and/or equipment too. I'll have a better idea of what I may be able to contribute once my plans are a little more settled.

Time to get this back up to the top. We have lots of room, and could use some more attendees with boats!

Case or someone,

Can you give me a rundown of the fishing conditions on the island. If not on the boat will we be fishing the surf, jetties any flats accessible. Just trying to figure out what rods, lines etc... to bring.

Thanks,
Sean

From Washburn...

You'd need to be able to get to the jetties and beachfront to have any excitement. This would take a yak or at least a shuttle ride from one of the boaters. Sometimes the inlet from shore is just as exciting as anything else out there, the pics of busting bass I posted were from the rocks and hardtails run the inlet like Weekapaug. You might consider being dropped off on the east jetty, which would permit a walk on South Cape Beach as far as desired.

As the boat/rider ratio settles down we will try to allocate shifts and shuttles accordingly. Those with yaks might consider bringing them for the mobility they afford in and around the island.

As far as lines and such, the usual - either the intermediate and/or sinking head lines same as everywhere else. I hope to have the two new two-hander prototypes available by that outing, fingers crossed. Nobuo informed me that the mandrels and blanks have been completed, now it's a matter of construction and shipping. I am totally psyched!

Anyway, to answer your question we will work out the shuttle / shift stuff once we know how many are attending. I still hope to see some guest appearances from captains and notables from the area although they haven't signed up yet. Maybe the Saturday feast will lure them out

Anyway, more to come. Hope that helps.

The walk/wade back from the jetty isn't bad. I had to do it a couple of years ago after several boats with smiling clavers waved and proceded on by. Thought to myself "what the f#@*" (wink wink). Depending on the boat to passenger ratio I may bring a yak. It would be nice to poke around a bit. While I was fishing from the jetty a guy was constantly picking up fish on repeated drifts in a kayak/canoe or rubber dingy while I managed just a snapper blue and a schoolie.

Attn: Boat Owners.
I noticed something on the list that doesn't jive. Many of the boat owners have listed 0 passengers since they have already filled the 1 or 2 spots with buddies. It would help the planning if you changed the boat capacity to reflect the true number of passengers including yourself. I originally asked for capacity excluding the owner, my bad. It should be quite easy to change the info just click on the 'login to change your info' link on the main page.

Everyone:
Be sure that all attendees sign up including the kids. For kids it's fine to just put Joe's son and just make up a handle, use the same email as you used for your own sign up. This will make it easier for Case to total up the campers and such.

Thanks.
