    I just wanted to get a thread started so we can communicate better for the upcoming trip. I was just wondering what everyone was bringing.

    Lite-liner we should hook up friday night and get together. I will be staying at Paradise outfitters cabin with fred and my crew.

    There might even be an open spot if any of you guys are interested, pm me and i will fill you in.

    Grescobia, give me a call i cant reach you on your cell.


    Should be agood trip if the weather holds. we have me, bret, gres, safisher, argo, gimmedeal, and a few others going as well. That friday there will be three boats from us and sat will have an added on with brian/liteliner.

    Bret, According to Scott Avanzino, the lodge was just recently finished. It's supposed to have seafood boilers, charcoal and gas grill. I'll bring fuel, a cooking base and the big wok. We ought to be pretty set for cookin.
    Oh yeah, according to rodnreel.com the wahoo are just makin it to the Lump. One guide got one just shy of 90 and one just over 90 in the last couple of days. Eddie said he'll be checkin it for action this week.

    Fred thanks for the info..

    Steve Johs and I are riding down with Fred. We would like to bring a slab of Filet Mignon and corn on the cob for one of our dinner meals. If all the dinners are already planned, we'll take care of all sandwichs needed for the two offshore trips.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone and spending a couple of days on the water. I've asked Santa to bring me a 150+ YFT...and I've been good most of the year :)

    Make sure to congratulate Capt Avanzino on his daughter's record book catch for her age group!

    I saw the article/pic write up in Saltwater Sportsman magazine.

    biggest fish, wahoo and tuna included in the same pot.....I dont mind having two seperate pots, that is up to the majority.......$20 is good for me.

    I will collect on thursday night......I got jipped last year .....I got the biggest fish and got shafted because there was no collection the night before....whoever puts in the pot is in the calcutta, whoever isnt paid into it is not in it.......

    I'm setting on go. Rods and reels ready. Ron at BarBar said he's gonna ship my acid wrapped jigger on a Super Seeker blank this week. Spinner will be tried and true 7' OTI with the Stella 1600. Knifes are sharp, ice chests empty, and I can wait but I can't hardly. Weather get right for two days of fishing this year.
    Argo, you WERE the fisherman last year. Those wahoo the first day were the best I've personally seen. However, this year's gonna be better. See ya soon.
    No game but the A game.

    Thanx for the update Eddie. That's not too encouraging but that's 17 days prior to our fishing sooo, we won't sweat the early check too much. Water's getting colder and expectations are high.
