BoneClave 2009

Hi,

I am looking forward to actually getting a group site together for this years Boneclave.

I have been watching the Waquiot Bay group campsite getting filled up...

looks like it makes thing unavailable 6 months out... I haven't figured out when the weekly block gets freed or if is a daily thing...Site 9 gets booked up more than 11.

I was hoping to reserve a group site for the dates 9-4-2009 thru 9-8-2009, all listed as unavailable right now I assume due to the 6mo out reservation window.

I haven't been able to look at the tides yet... Maine harbors no longer hosts Mass tides...Tides charts I found end in june 2009 right now...

Greg.

Greg- try saltwatertides.com- gives tides out to Dec 2009- go to Mass, then click bubble for "Falmouth Heights", then line to "choose dates". For Sept 4, high is about 11:30 AM and low at 5:45 PM- 1.2 foot drop in tide- max tide is on Sunday the 6th (1.4 ft, with lows at 6:44 AM and 7:04 PM, and high at 12:48 PM). Hope that helps!

Is Labory Day weekend the best time to try and book a group fishing excursion? Seems like that might be a crazy weekend on the water. I know it is around here and I can only think the vineyard would be worse. Not sure I would want to brave trailering around Cape traffic that weekend.

In 2007 we did it around Sept 23rd or so. There were Albies, Blues & Stripers to be had, and the crowds were pretty much gone. Good time was had by all.

Greg -

Thanks for taking the helm on this. Sean makes a good point, post-labor would be better BUT you should call and talk to the HQ folks for best results (I always do).

I am really looking forward to this, island time is the best time.

But island hangovers can make Sunday morning a bit uncomfortable

I'll never forget the year Griz held a 'formal scotch tasting'

I missed the scotch tasting, but fell victim to the bourbon-soaked peach cobbler....guess that makes me a lightweight by comparison

Would someone please tell me what the boneclave is?
I know of a few boneclaves where people are either called boneheads or fish for bonefish.

I feel sure that cannot be the case here.

Pete

Pete,

The Boneclave is a gathering where people with boats and some without team up to spend a long weekend or so on Washburn Island in Waquoit Bay. We camp on the island and fish vineyard sound hoping to catch some small tuna. Originally Bonito but given their unpredictable nature we have moved the timing later in the year (mid September) to include False Albacore. This also brings into play the beginning of the migration for Stripers and Blues.

Sean

scotch tasting

Juro,
depending on the dates of the clave, i may be able to make an encore event, but there may have to be a small charge to offset the whisky.
Slainte,
Chuck

has it been decided to reserve a space at washburn island? if i remember correctly someone posted something indicating that we need to book waaaaaay out in advance because the better camp sites get taken quite early.

while i'm open to any time, the end of september really makes sense for booking, crowds, and lots of fish. has a date been confirmed yet?
if i can be of any help, please let me know.
neal

It's almost time to book the site...

Yes, booking a site at washburn must be done about 6months in advance and it can be a pain to get a site too. I have had one reserved, But it wouldn't go through till after 9am, then after 9 it was no longer available... :-(

But it is getting closer to the time to book it.

Site 9 is very popular group site, But will give it a go. Still haven't decided what weekend looks best yet as far as tides go.

regards, Greg
