I do not know where to post this. So... it is posted here. I am trying to assist TOO and our chartermaster Ragman with planning some of this trip. It's all about the details... LOL I plan to travel on the 17th and stop for the evening about as close as I can get to Port Fourchon. I feel that it is high time to get some plans made. I need some input from the group as to their wishes. I know of a couple of places that are available to the group. www.bobbylynns.com/lodging.htm This will work for the group to stay together as a large party. There is the Kajun Motel that is also close by. What are your desires and needs? How about a head count of those that need lodging either before and/or after the trip. Next subject FOOD. We will have 3 breakfasts, lunches and diners plus snacks on the water. I do not expect a six course sit-down meal. We all will need some hearty food to ensure that we as crew and anglers are ready to function. I see things this way. A hot morning and evening meal is enough cooking. Cold sandwiches and leftovers are fine for lunches and snacks. I am gonna eat some sashimi and cerviche. A good meal of fresh smoked/grilled fish would be enjoyable. I think that DrShark and McGolfer are planning to bring beef fillets and heifer dust. I think that BBQ would be great. Either beef brisket or pork boston butt. Or both. I do not know what kitchen aplicances are available to us. This kinda makes planning breakfast difficult. I think that biscuits, eggs and some kinda pig would suffice most days. Does anyone have any special dietary needs? Allergys? TOO, how many Capt and crew are we going to be fishing with? Suggestions?????
