Chris, as far as tent sites did you try Shawmee Crowell state campground? I personally have never camped there but hear they are by far better than the 'desert' like sites at scussett and it would put you on the cape side of the canal. If you want to fish the canal you would be close to there too. Other campgrounds you could call would be Maurices in Wellfleet or Atlantic Oaks in Eastham. Good luck and hope to get out fishing myself soon.

Thanks all,
Juro I replied to your other e-mail before I read this string further. Thanks for everything. All I need now are times and places to meet Perhaps A mass rendevous is in order and then we can sort out the particulars from there. We don't have any desire to fish the canal, Just booked scussett because it was the only vacancies I could find on line that were even resonably close. I'll pick up a detailed map today a scope out some of the other spots folks suggested.

Watch for Ian now and again he'll be contributing to some conversations. His handle is striper551 has be since we went on line when he was 6 if that tells you anything.
Again thanks, Chris and Ian.

Ian would love for you to show him some casting techniques. Probably wouln't hurt me either. He's been flyfishing for trout for quite a while but at least he won't start out with my bad double hauling habits if you get to him first.
got to get back to work, Chris

Chris -

Sweetwater has a spot with elec / water open (no problem pitching a tent there) for $30/night, right off 6a in Brewster! A little pricey for a site, but beats the heck out of a hotel room! (plus you get to bring the tv }> )

Give 'em a call if you are interested!


Sweetwater Forest
Brewster, Massachusetts

There you go again Tinman... here I am settling into a "just chase stripers" sense of calm and then you flash a gorgeous bonito at us and I am shaking with tunoid fever again!

I'm IN
Arrive later on Friday PM and will not have time to pick up a "stripping" basket.
All I need is one of the "WallMart specials" and I can cut it to fit.
John. I plan to meet up with you at the light , around 4:30AM?.
If it's possible for you to do so, could you pick up a basket for me? and confirm "gathering time".
I will sing.... along Chatham road.... as promised
I should be good to get you at the Edgewater - although we would need to work out return times, I may need to return early for family duties on the holiday weekend.

In any case, I can get you to Chatham on Sat AM Pete!

Juro

Let's make it 5:00, I might be driving down in the morning (cottage is packed). We'll be at the light by 5:20. We'd never catch Striblue anyway

Pete, what's the issue with Edgewater... Do you need a ride back... I am not sure I have the whole story. I will see you guys at the light. I will be with Roop and probably Solo .
