Post Spring Clave 2004

Let's all show Sean Ransom, our webmaster from Seattle what the striper angler is made of!

Here is the sign-up sheet, please provide your information so we can get the hotel and meal accomodations completed in time.

http://www.flyfishingforum.com/exper...pringclave.htm

Plan to bring a fly for Sean - it's the least we can do for the late nights without pay that he's been putting in to get the site where it is today.

Lodging is $59 per room, two beds so about $30 per night each. I have planned for Thursday and Friday lodging, Saturday is optional for those wanting to stay and fish on the 16th.

Big group dinner on Friday night - based on attendance we will plan a very good barbeque menu starting with grilled littlenecks and other local favorites - chicken and steak tip kabobs, or a cermonial striper fillet is not out of the question as it will be fully utilized by the group even though we typically promote C&R.

Post any additional questions or ideas here.

Hi Guys,
I signed up for the Spring Clave and included my partner Walt Crews in with me. We will both do the dinner on Friday. What time does it start?
Also, since I put both Walt and I on the same sign up form, I think it only counted us as one person. Walt does not have email, that is why I put him with me. Please make sure we plan for the two of us.
See everyone a week from Friday.
Cheers,
DK

I priced out traditional clambakes and they cost about $50 per person, so we can do MUCH better on our own.

I will meister the dinner. We'll do a New England style barbeque.

Appetizers:

Littlenecks on the grill with diced garlic and dill butter
Nova smoked atlantic salmon with capers and sliced red onion
(Other appetizers that people bring along, chips / salsa etc)

Main course:

Herbed chicken kabobs; onion, sweet peppers
Steak tip kabobs; onion, mushrooms
Grilled striped bass fillet w/ Chef Prudomme's Seafood Magic (if someone scores)
Rice Pilaf
Asparagus
Potato Salad

Dessert:

We're all going to Sundae School.

This should be an easy meal for us at $15 per head I would guess. We need an accurate head count to get the price correct.

We'll have grills available at the hotel, but might be able to have the cookout at another local area e.g. one of our cottages, etc. Most likely we'll do it right at the Stone Horse though. I am planning on bringing a little portable grill and stove to cook sides, etc. If it's not too much trouble to bring a camp stove it would really help.

Location may change based on better options arising, like somewhere with a nice big deck and awesome fishing paraphenalia

Stay tuned.

Sounds terrific.

I signed up for Friday eats but the sign-up roster refers to Saturday night dinner - should it say Friday night?

Great to hear you're all able to attend!

Please sign up twice if you have someone coming with, we need to keep the headcount straight.

thanks!

Juro... might that place be CAC?... It is OK with me....I would love to host...just a couple things... I will be in Boston until probably 5 on that Friday.... than I need to get back to Winchester and head right out to the Cape ...probably around 7 at the earliest... puts me a t CAC about 8:30 PM.... so I am voting for a Saturday Night dinner at CAC... What do you think...I have several grills, etc. I would think we would have the whole group on that Saturday and not all on Friday... let me know what you think?..............................OK, this is an edit, I see Sean will not be around Sat. Night.... if we can have a later dinner..you know around 9...I can do it at CAC Friday night.

Just a suggestion. Why not have the dinner at the Motel as planned and then move over the the CAC for some special Porgy oil afterwards . That way John can make the dinner without rushing to setup ect. and then move to his place for the Oil.
Just a thought. FishHawk

Those bones at Somerset were BIG. I hope you hook up, they would be screamers. Aside from the sandy beaches, lagoons are targeted by the guide (singular) and worth looking into where you can. Some broad flats in the lagoon near the airport I never got to investigate. Appear to be some small cays on the southeast corner too, but that would be a long shot from where you are staying.

Cuda and jacks were plentiful, particularly at the aquarium area although some of the grounds were private where you have the best access. A little kayak would be incredible to have. I've got an inflatable you could borrow...

Good luck
