To the Rip Trip participants...Juro, and the crew..should we start thinking about scheduling some rip trips to South Monomoy... Even if we schedule more, we could always fill them up..I have no doubt about that but keep in mind that weather is always a factor so I am for starting to schedule soon... like this month or early July.. We could schedule and still get cancelled because of any number of issues including weather.. It would be ashame to schedule only a few and end up have to cancel those because of cancelable events.. What say Ye?

As Keith will tell you, the first thing I said when I ran to catch the boat Saturday was "it's time to talk about the Rip Trip". Funny how the reports, intuitions, and urges hit us like a school of bass feeling the tide.

Lets do it.

I fished the beach down there a little while ago and though I missed the "magic" time on the rip the beaches had many schools of big bass cruising them. That made the whole time a "magic" time. I'd say it would be worth planning ASAP.

Well, it sounds like people want to do it so lets do it. Sorry if I have been a little distracted about claves for the last couple of days - but since we'll be the only ten people in an area bigger than Barnstable's Sandy Neck I know we won't be bothering anyone. 8)

The days were picked based on transitionals and of crux mapping of journal log information from the Nantucket / Vineyard Sound fish weir statistics published by Sharpe and Nichols since 1976 (Apogee Press). Must admit available vacation days of early signup members and long-range weather predictions were the biggest factors since tide doesn't make any difference - but if you are interested in more reasons for picking these dates just ask about it on the boat cause it's a pretty long ride.

John Morin is the coordinator so I will need to confirm dates with him and either he or I will post them as soon as I talk to him about it.

Time, vacation, work, etc. permitting I'd love to join in a trip.

Juro - any blood oath(s) we need to sign not to communicate w/ one another & remain at least 400 yards apart...?

Out there on the point there is a beautiful, pristine place where the whole world seems to be young and you can walk for miles without seeing another soul if that floats one's boat.

You can just as easily enjoy each other's company, and sometimes the fishing is half-decent ;-)

Sorry about the delay... since John raised the motion to trip the rip (rip the trip? rip some lip?) I am waiting until our busy day job schedules mesh so we can see what he has in mind.

Meanwhile, I will be working on the signup sheet and we'll plug in the info based on the discussion with John.

BTW -

Some of you have done the trip before, so if there are any suggestions from the group this is the time and place!

Throw my name in the hat and if I've counted right I am #16 . Don't know the logistics of setting up a trip like this but it would appear that we are pushing the #20 mark. Only a thought but having two dates to choose from could be the logical solution to a numbers problem.

I will definitely be in for one of these!

Quote from Juro:

According to Bruce there are some "hippy girls" camped out in small huts doing bird counts for th Natural History Museum so there may just be the odd distraction - "No way, not me, never" ...they all cried in unison. ;)
