Big Brother Updates?

Juro,

Any updates on the Big Brother event such as meeting times or any specific prep help needed etc...I am thinking of making a weekend on the Cape out of it but need some details to firm things up.

Thanks,

Sean

Sean,

The other Sean and I just had a chat about this, and I have had a couple calls with Molly and also Keith.

The plan is to do the same as last year, where we rendezvous on the beach for lunch and while we have their attention do the talk.

Thus unless you volunteered for something in the morning and need to be on the refuge side you can go fish and 'scout around' before lunch.

Boot camp during the picnic, working thru until we break for the 'friendly competition'. Last count we had 13-14 pairs already signed up so there should be approximately 45-50 people on hand for the event. I think this is the right size based on past events. Due to pure luck or good planning, we should have a perfect set of matches - one to one to one this year

Afterwards, since we all go back to the refuge anyway we can do the ceremony there on the HQ steps.

There can be more fishing but I think since many need to get back home that day a bucket of steamers and something from the tap might be an appropriate way to cap the day at the Squire.

Lunches are provisioned by Chatham Village Cafe, 400 Main street. Please give them your support during the year and mention the Forum.

Our mighty chariot drivers (hmmm Keith would make a good roman mercenary although I don't think they had Maui Jims back then - and the admiral would make a mean Caesar in a toga with a laurel wreath on his head) of the Rypus Ryderus will escort the precious cargo across the treacherous 2 minute crossing to the wilds of South Beach for the kids 'boot camp'.

I always get to hog the show but if anyone would like to do it this year please just say so.

I will get on the horn to see what kind of grown up prizes we can round up, but we will do the awards as usual so please ask your local fishin' shop if they would pitch in something for the boys.

Thanks for starting this thread Sean and let's keep the ideas flowing.

Summary:

AM fishing: Unless you are signed up for assistance we can fish the morning and let the pairs enjoy the refuge scavenger hunt with the rangers and people who work at the HQ until lunch.

Lunchtime: fishing primer, boot camp

1pm or so: Fishing till Rip Ryder brings us back

4 or 5pm (confirming pickup time): Award Ceremonies at HQ

6pm: Group @ Squire

Spoke to Molly yesterday, she said all slots have been filled and she asked if any of us would volunteer to double up -or- if we could find more mentors.

Anyone feel they could handle two pairs, or others willing to volunteer to pick up the extra signups?

I can do 2 pairs. I certainly have enough extra rods and sluggos to handle it.

I gave my spin rods from last year to my neice and nephew so I will have to buy one this year again. Keeps them fresh anyway I never had to change the line that way!

Phil -

just use what you have. If you don't have spin gear, work with them to use the fly rods. They will appreciate anything you have to offer believe me.


Sean - not sure snagging hooks are a good idea with five on board / inexperienced kids, but perhaps you could use the morning to go put some in the livewell ahead of time if you want to really show us shore schleppers up. BTW the bunker are over on the Morris Island / Stage Inlet area.

Actually I think I will work with one spin, one fly this year. I will provide focused attention with the fly rod pair and basic intro for the spin then let them work on their own. After a bit, switch them up.

Phil -

If you can't find a spin rod just stick with one pair.

BTW -

The last time I was out the bigger blues (10#) were roving the outside beaches so gear up accordingly and watch those little fingers.

Just kidding on the snag hooks. No boat. Spending the rest of the weekend with the family so the fishing time will be limited to the event. If anyone is doing some scouting ahead of time it would be great to share that information so that as many kids as possible can benefit. Looks like we have a good tide for the inside with a 1 o'clock low so we can get the kids out to the channels. Not sure that is the best tide for the ocean side though?

We will have great tides for the ocean side but the inside catching situation for the kids would be much better if we did the morning shift. The logistics of fishing in the morning don't work with the ceremony though.

Since it will be mostly about getting the kids into schoolies or better we can do the easy drop-off fishery on the inside and hope some venture up onto the flats with the afternoon rise before the ride comes, or of course take advantage of the good outside situation which should be prime unless we have an "E" component in the wind.

Hope for sun and a light breeze and the locating of fish will be much easier for all.

Flydoc, what are the restrictions on out of stater's & 44's? Do I need seal permit?

Juro, I can help out that weekend too. I will be fishing Friday on the north shore, but I can drive down Saturday & stay till Sunday. We start a week of fishing Monday the 25th in Pittsburgh NH, and end up on Casco bay on the 30th. Why not make it to the Cape that week too? a marathon fishing vacation & help some kids too?

I can probably round up some gear & maybe even a prize or two.

Please send me an email, call or PM of what is required for gear and what kind of prize material you need. & sign me up.
