Rip Trip ????? Now????

I am heading for Chatham atleast for the next two, three weeks.... and long weekends after.... with things as they are...in late summer...I am thinking that we should speak with keith about a rip trip...maybe two and head down despite favorable tides at mid day...just go.... explore the flats down there, the ocean side as well as the rip itself..... I will call Keith tonight and ask him what days are good for him to be able to pull this off.....First attempt should be a day during the week of July 29th... pull that off ,and immediatly schedule another trip...etc.. etc. I will set up a post to sign up once the day is set... and do the usual... with back ups...hopefully all who sign up can go if we shedule back to backs, etc...depending on what Keith rules...Any thoughts on all of this...

Mayor -

I don't see any great tides for the rip this season but will do it on a mediocre one anyway jus' cuz.

Top end flats need to be checked even though NM has been lackluster. My strategy is to fish the corner created by the southway on the ocean side as well as checking the inside flats.

Next month it will be a death trap for bunker streaming up the shoreline.

I can only imagine the sculpting that corner is experiencing from surf misdirection and that kind of habitat will make the deep eel feel right at home even in the dog days.

Hi John

I can't do the week of the 29th but am up for almost any other time. See you next week sometime. I'll call when we are settled in Brewster.

John,

I think the good Captain is up for it. He mentioned to me on Sunday that it was getting close to the time for a rip trip. I am certainly up for it.

Does this mean I may have to blow off work at the last minute to make the boat?

I would be up for one. Weekdays actually work the best for me but I know you guys usually do them on the weekend. With enough warning I should be able to make it regardless.

I'd be up for it if the date(s) work out. I have lots of short conflicts scattered in the calendar, so it's hit or miss. It's a 10 hour RT, but Warren I go right past your Sunapee exit.

One trip is no good... several is more like it....later...john...............FishHawk- call...Larry...I will wait to hear from you... and I have contacted Juro....CAC is open this weekend as the kids will not be down until Sunday. I am expecting to figure out places on the boat for everyone if Keith can do multiple trip on various days...
