RE:YAKBONE Clave this weekend!

<b>YAKBONE LOGISTICS</b>

Furrently ten of us. We'll meet at exit #5 off route 6 at 5:00 am. There is a small pull off near a state park sign and stockade fence just to the south of the exit. You'll see other cars there. We will not have time to fish Chatham light and get back to the spot in a timely manner as I see it. We will plan for an evening Chatham chaser if people are interested. (on a related note, the Rip trips each have a Chatham appetizer planned)

We will follow each other to the <b>General Parking Spot</b> to acknowledge it's location. Then proceed to the <b>launch location</b>. All craft should be launched, then all vehicles will go to the general parking location. The drivers of the vehicles will be <b>shuttled</b> back to the launch point by one or two vehicles, who will park at the area and risk the ticket. Some anglers will be watching our gear during the shuffle. I believe one vehicle has a good chance of not getting ticketed, but if the small lot is packed with non-resident vehicles there is hell to pay.

OK, at this point we are back at the launch with one (or two) vehicles and all the clavers. We can then begin the shuttle across the inlet. With the current model, there will be a need for two trips each made by two canoes and the rest have a way across. Gregg, Mike - I am considering you two in need of shuttling. I don't think a float tube will do. For those with their own craft - please be considerate of those who are shuttling or getting shuttled in terms of spot selection and jockeying for position, etc.

There is ample room for beaching yaks and canoes on the sand, and a good amount of room for the list we have on board.

I have a spinning rod and will try to figure out what scup and fluke like. Anyone else have a spinning rod for this? Two should do it, maybe even one?

We should consolidate ice into a single large cooler in the event we hit bones, they will need ice immediately. I have a single large cooler and will bring it. In any case we will have cold beverages. Maybe one of us will need to make and extra shuttle run

I need the following volunteers:

a) scup / fluke meister - brings bait, hooks, other spin rod (I'm bringing one), and knows how to get a dozen scup or fluke or both. All will chip in to fill the bucket. We need a bucket too. Nick is this you?

b) stove man - gas stove, gas

c) utensil man - paper plates, plastic forks, garbage bag, paper towels

d) fillet man and cook - board, knife, spices, flour, oil, large fry pan, spatula, large spoon - I'll take this one.

e) side dish man - something that doesn't need to be cooked that goes well with saute'd fish... couscous comes to mind, pasta salad, potato salad, my favorite is rice pilaf but this requires an additional burner and a big pot for double dose to feed this many. OK - it's fine if we cook it before the fish fry beings, thus it will be ready.


OK - who's got what?

RE:YAKBONE Clave this weekend!

I'll be side dish man. I will also bring a large cooler full of ice since the dish may (or may not) have mayonaise in it.

Am I leaving my garbage scow, I mean boat, at home??

RE:YAKBONE Clave this weekend!

Juro,
I have no problem being the fluke dude. I only have a problem in that I can supply all the materials, I just don't know how to catch them. Any suggestions here would be great. I think they like sandworms or even squid strips, but then again, we don't want skate for lunch. This isn't really Survivor, is it?
Nick

RE:YAKBONE Clave this weekend!

Yeah... each time someone gets a skate, they are eliminated. Of course there will be many opportunities for TV, interviews on Good MOrning America, etc. A scup - you stay one more episode. A fluke - you get to stay in the shack with.... never mind.

That reminds me of a great joke...

This guy is shipwrecked with Heather Locklear. She is first repulsed by him but over time, his offerings of fish and figs breaks through and nature's wild oats are sown. Things are awesome for a while but he starts to get really frustrated. She asks what's up, and offers to do anything to help. "Anything?" he asked. "Anything!" says she.

He goes to the shack and gets an old flannel shirt, a ball cap and some jeans. He says "put these on" so she does. He goes to the fireplace and gets some coal to paint a mustache and beard on heather. All of a sudden the fire comes back into his eyes and he shouts "Joe... hey Joe... guess what? I AM DOIN' HEATHER LOCKLEER!!!!!"

If we can't get a stove stud, I have an old coleman (very old) stove that may get the job done.

Email coming...

RE:YAKBONE Clave this weekend!

You guys may want to consider fishing in front of the New Seabury golf course as well. You wouldn't need the boats unless you went down to the other end and over to Washburns. There were many pods of fish in close to shore there on Thursday. There's some nice structure in front of the big house up on the the bluff there and the bones use it to trap bait and hammer it pretty consistently.

There have also been reports of king mackerel off Craigville Beach and the Centerville River, and I wouldn't rule out the bonito showing in that area or over by the Wianno (West Bay) jetties. You could pay to park in the Craigville Beach lot and not have to worry about your cars there.

Sorry I can't make it, but major home improvements have me landlocked for another couple of days.

Good luck,

Steve

RE:YAKBONE Clave this weekend!

I have a friend who would love to come as well, if it is logistically possible. What do you all think? I guess it depends on where we fish, and since I don't know the area that well, I can't make a decision.

RE:YAKBONE Clave this weekend!

Juro et al...

You're killing me! Any chance of my joining for an abbreviated trip (i.e. 5-9 a.m.)? Otherwise, is anyone else interested in hitting somewhere else in the area during those hours? If so, you can email me at "dillondux@aol.com".

Tod

RE:YAKBONE Clave this weekend!

Steve -

Thanks for the inside track on the area, good luck on your home improvements. I know how many brownie points that's worth with the lady o' the house and those points pay dividends as the season heats up. (Although it sounds like your season's already sizzling).

Tod -

You sure could, but you'd either have to fish the 'near' side or we could shuttle you over and you would have to barter with someone to shuttle you back early. Note: we are wise to wampum... those quaahog shells are everyhwere! [img]http://216.71.206.188/images/flytalk/Wilk.gif" border="0" align="middle">

Nick -

I know your freind is a non FF, if he is willing to leave his spin gear and learn to flyfish with us I'll row him myself. Otherwise he'll have to be the scup stud, duke of fluke if he insists on spin gear. <img src="http://216.71.206.188/images/flytalk/Wilk.gif[/img]

RE:YAKBONE Clave this weekend!

juro- I'm all up for learning to fly fish. I've been wanting a rod for a while actually. Nick and I are going to go after work and see if we can find a good beginner rod in the boston area. Suggestions are appreciated. I'm guessing Orvis would be a little expensive. I don't want to spend more than $200.

P.s. I've done a little FF'ing before, and take it from me, I'm dangerous.

RE:YAKBONE Clave this weekend!

ChrisM,

I would recommend the Redignton Red Fly as the perfect beginner's rod. The blank they use for this is the same as in their top shelf products with a slightly thinner inner wall. It casts like a dream and is very forgiving o the beginner. I've owned one for a season now and I have to say it's been a pleasure to learn the sport with it -- best $75 I've spent to date (it also comes with a "no questions asked" warranty: you break it hauling in a big fish, they replace it on the spot at any dealership; you slam it in the trunk of your car, they replace it; you stomp on it and use the broken parts to grow tomatoes, they replace it (after the growing season when you no longer need the parts )

As for a reel, you might want to look at a cheapo at first. The Okuma Sierra is what I went with ($35). I replaced it just recently, but it's still functional as a backup.

Don't skimp on the line!! Airflo, Cortland, and Sci Angler all make very good lines.

I'm sure others have some favorites as well. Best of luck and welcome to the sport! May it haunt you for many years to come.
