Rip Trip next week

Today's rip trip organized by Phil ( Bonefishmon) was cancelled . I just called Admiral Ed and was told it was too windy. So...although September is a good time to set some up is there any interest next week..like a thursday or Friday...or even the weekend. We can do a 6 man or 12 man. The tides were good today and I have not checked them for next week... We need and outgoing for at least half a day. I can get 6 by word of mouth but 12 would be great. Simms may also be down so he would be a definite. Just sign in here if you would like to go and the days you can make it...knowing that weather or more importantly wind is always an issue. Phil tried for two trips and failed... So if necessary I would like a shorter window... A 24 or 12 window to get the guys but will start to see if we can get numbers now. OK? I know that the boat guys seem to be doing well at the rips and with stripers not just blues and , who knows, maybe a school of bones will fly in for a brief visit. I'll wear one of my pith helmets just to embarrass everyone..it will not embarrass me

Similar tides will cycle two weeks from now. I think I'm in Boston that second weekend though.

We gave it a good try. I'd like to join you but the mortgage needs to get paid this month.
I took three days off from work this week for a much needed R&R Cape fix. We were not disappointed. We found fish but not many. Thanks John for all your help and thanks to all the provided help with the fishing. It was good to see Ron, Gary and Steve and fish with them for a while. This Forum rocks! Get to the Rips if you can guys. It's a great trip.

Phil

Jim the mung has been spotty . It's all depends on the direction of the wind. Fishing is very slow . Too many water skiers , jet skies and boats. The only place that's been consistently good is the Canal. FishHawk

I'd be interested in a rip-trip sometime in Sept. Coming from PA, I'd take a few days off and come early and "get warmed up"...

Ron...I am still thinking about Friday..if the weather works....I would do it...I am also thinking that if the tide is not optimal...I will move the group around the corner...about a 1/2 mile right on the tip....try a new area at the point....there is another small rip and the water is basically not effected as a flow but rather just in and out tide with deep holes..but we will have to make the call probabaly Wednesday...short notice is required because of weather. Ok? Also..I have a list of guys who want to go, one guy I guided, also guys from my fishing club...Simms will be back...we may schedule the future ones by PM or email because of the lack of interest...I will schedule them usually on optimum tide and weather and they even maybe on 24 hour notice. I will be working this out with Keith to get hold of the best dates in 4eptember and early October...I will reserve the best dates during those two months with Keith

Simply put...my thinking, and I feel Simms will agree is that we set these up on no more than a weeks notice with calling the cancellations earlier, Like no shorter than 12 hours. On occasions I would want to put a trip together on 2 or 3 day notice..this I feel would help everyone with planning...just trying to make these more workable.
