7th Annual Rhody IceBreaker

7th Annual Rhody IceBreaker

Saturday, May 3rd, 6:00 AM to noon - Fishing
Barbecue 1:00 PM
High tide: 6:46 AM
Sunrise: 5:39 AM

Almost a month away and its time to get things started. Last year was a blast fishing from boats. We had over 22 people. Most of us had our rigs ready. We had seven boats, enough to get everyone on the water. With a later date, we caught more fish with some size to it. The weather was perfect for an outdoor hamburger/hot dog fling.

Once again we are in need of boats. That's the important factor. Slinger should be showing off his new Mako. Sweet ride! Most fishing will be done fairly close to the ramp, so there won't be a lot of running around. This will keep the expense of gas down for most captains. We fish the morning and meet afterwards say 1:00pm at my house. I start pulling my boat at 12:00 noon to get things rolling. There is plenty of parking for cars and trailers too, both at the house and ramp.

All are welcome to attend any/or all portions of the day's events. You need not bring anything to the barbecue. All food and soft drinks will be supplied for zip. You might want to pack something to snack on while on the water. Think about your captain too. With the larger numbers of intended fishers this year, I will put out a donation jar to help offset the expenses of maintaining the Fly Fishing Forum. It's strictly volunteer and all monies go to this site. None to any politican's pockets.

Good fly patterns - Clousers, (chartreuse, olive, and yellow), white deceivers, alewives patterns, bucktail flies, and jellyfish patterns.

Capt. Ray

RI Kick-off

Hi Ray, I plan to be there and will be picking up my boat. FishHawk has already signed up to go with me. I'd prefer to go with just 2 in the boat, but can certainly take me plus 2 if there aren't enough spaces to go round.

Warren, I'll be combining this with a family visit, but if there's a ride I can give that makes sense, let's explore it.

Todd, I was thinking of Maybe visiting with Slinger as he has told me a time or two to call him & stay with him. I have to see what he is up to & go from there. Lets see how everyones schedules work out, If I am as busy as I am now I may have to drive down late Friday night. Or first thing Saturday. We have a month to figure it out. Stay Tuned..... Same Bass time, Same Bass Channel



I can hardly wait.

I'm back, and I'm in. I don't think I'll have my rig ready in time, so please put me on the list for a boat spot, if available.

I'm really looking forward to this. As always, thanks Capt. Ray for putting this together for us!

My attendance is up in the air as of now, one of the drawbacks of working retail, hard to get a Sat. off. I`ll do my best to be there, the new ride is sitting at the shop waiting to be preped. The Indians in thier generosity, just paid for the first years insurance.
