Canal the 18th.

Flydoc just asked in the clave sign up thread ,where the meeting place will be at the canal. So where will it be , cape side at the flats by the RR bridge at the west end or behind gallos skating rink or head further east,or somewhere on the mainland side. It should it have easy access to all ,unless we all have bikes then it's just a matter of a central meeting place .

Current turns East at 4:49 am which means limited time on the flats although it could be interesting for those prepared to make the early start. After that I am in the hands of the Canal Gurus

I would like to get back to Chatham in time to pick up a clamming permit before the town hall closes so I'll probably hang out until lunchtime

In that case it will be an early start

How long do you stay out there on an incoming tide?

I will arrive around 5 at bell road. Seems like a great place to meet up first.

Until that little rock behind you on the shore gets covered with water We will likely find that the bite at the Bell flats shuts off an hour after the turn anyhow. The early crew can wade back and rest in the parking lot at Bell meet the late comers (assuming they bring a box of Joe and Jelly donuts) and then move East in small groups to hit a few spots for a few hours (cell phones numbers can be exchanged at Bell at 7am). If any real late comers need my cell phone number it is available if requested by PM.

I'll head to the RR bridge and look for a bunch of shady customers. There are two car parks there; a smaller one nearer to the bridge, and a bigger one to the west.

My fish sense is telling me head to the west car park; is this right?

Your 'spidey sense' is correct
