on a road trip now but will all the refuge about spots

typically easy to get indivs but the group site can be hard to book

late season is easier so there is a chance still

alternative locations can make it happen as well

anyone want to help meister they would be welcome

Looks like all the weekends are taken for site 9. Well this weekend 4th 5th is open but that would be more of a boneclave firedrill and might be a bit early for hardtails.
FWIW - in my experience the group sites are the last to go because there is special criteria for reserving them, anyone can reserve the individual sites but they are limited to one family of not more than 4 persons.

There's always during the week and the fishing is always better during the week I just don't see a decent turnout.

I'd be up for attending provided someone can fit me in a boat.
The RI venue is more foot friendly but if the season shapes up like last year, it wouldn't be worth it.
Crowds in RI is another deterent.

I have an idea...

Sippewisset Campground, just north of Woods Hole on lower Buzzards Bay / West end near Falmouth and salt ponds, ferry to Islands etc - tents spots galore and cabins that sleep up to 8 for $500/week split == peanuts.

When: after Labor Day weekend. (Sept 7th-9th)

Actually even later is fine in that area for lots of action of all sorts but that should be prime hardtail time.

Google Sippewisset Campground.

Anyone in?

Distance to island ferry terminals for foot soldiers on the hardtail hunt...
3 miles and 6 miles

Availability for that time is good now, but we should decide within the next few days to hold the cabins.

Public landings nearby, not sure about mooring arrangements to avoid pulling daily for boat owners.

This area is amenable to shore fishing with proximity to West End Canal, Buzzards Bay, Woods Hole, Falmouth ponds, close enough to South Cape Beach / Wacky inlet, Eel Pond, Wianno, Cotuit, Poppy, etc.

Boneclave 2007

Hi Guys,

Sorry to hear we didn't get the group site again at Washburn this year. It won't be the same being at a different area that's for sure. But if the group can't get spots on the Washburn Island I would think Sippewisset Campground would be a good alternative. It will certainly be easier to get gear, food and everything else to the camp site than Washburn Island. It would be nice to have the boats just of the site as opposed to on a trailer or moored off in the distance.

I'm wondering how many people might want to go this year and when?

Do we have any dates in mind that look good?

If not many are going I might try for a small site on Washburn again this year.

Greg.

Unfortunately you will have to count me out this year. New role at work is forcing me to keep my vacation schedule a little more flexible during the fall this year.

I'd still be interested in attending at either camp site. I like Washburn, never been to the other place. I don't know any of the shore areas available near Sippewisset other than the canal and south cape beach, neither of which strike me as high odds locations for bones/albies. I know nothing about the other spots mentioned.
Access to spots providing reasonable chances for hardtails would be deciding factor for me. That or a spot on a boat.
My concern is that the dates mentioned are the prime weekends for albie fishing in RI. I have more faith in my ability to find 'em from shore there so I'd be reluctanct to give up that weekend unless odds were pretty good of finding them on the cape.
Doesn't seem like a ton of interest so maybe a moot point.

Hi Mike,

I have to agree with your thoughts on going to the cape when there is a good chance of hitting the hardtails. It's tough to predict how good it will be, it varies every year. It does appear that there is not too much interest in the Boneclave this year so far. If I am the only boater and I have my sons along that leaves no room on the Sea Ox to fish out of, But it could ferry you to some good shore spots. Not sure if I'll be taking a larger boat or not this year, motors aren't ready yet.

If we do get a couple boaters interested I'm for a site on Washburn Island.
What weekend sounds good to try for those Hardtails, any thoughts there?

Greg.

Did someone say Boneclave?
Since the BC got moved to my anniversary weekend I've been unable to attend. So I'm up for these Sep. possibilities. How about post-Labor day motels with boat ramps nearby? (like yous guys do for the Spring Clave). Sakonnet? Westport? Wianno?

Another possiblity, for those who really love Washburn: I seem to remember one year we took a Sun-Tue booking. There are 2 such stretches available for site 9: Sep 16-17 and Sep 23-25. Just a thought.

With enough notice I can go midweek. I would like to attend such a meet.

Hey Lefty! Glad to see you're still lurking out there. Been getting any of those big stripahs on the nort shaaw?

I'd be up for weekdays with some notice.
I like the later dates. By then I'll know how the RI albie run is shaping up. Either I will have caught enough to be willing to explore new water [a normal season] - or I'll be discouraged enough to give the heck up and look for greener pastures [last season].
