Yeah I did a group thing last year where we rented a pontoon for the day. We had 6 guys, so it ended up being pretty cheap. This year I have been too busy to put a group thing together. So its just my Brother and I and whomever wants to meet us up there. No pontoon, but we have some pretty good spots on the shoreline and docks

My Bro and I are renting a Bass Boat for the tournament on June 23-24th. Man, I need to buy my own boat haha. (might be cheaper to keep renting though)

DD, Buying your own boat is nowhere cheaper, The upkeep is a killer some times. Plus you gotta clean it when you get home, all by your self. Tom

But you can , at times(xmas & tax season ) get a 13-15'er ona trailer for cheap . But they are all maitnence .

I just found out that I have the House on the 16-17th ( no GF or the dogs ) & the 23-24th .

Physically , i don't see it happening but would it make it cheaper 3 ways ? Or maybe I can ride a long ( just taking pics ) for Beer n Food ?

GF & dogs will be there 23-24th .

would have loved to have gone. Was in San Diego for teachers examination. Just got in today.

I hope to do some serious bowfishing this summer.

I'm just wondering if fishing around the coves off of the Pacific is do'able.... :archer-green:

The fishing was slow. I shot one at night after we got up there on friday. Would have liked to stay out at night to shoot more but my daughter was freezin her butt off. We got 5 right away on saturday morning but then it just died out. Ended up leaving about 1pm

The Tournament on the 23-24th is for 2-man teams. You could tag along but couldnt shoot fish with us or we could get DQ'd. It would be sweet to have a full time Driver/Helper on the boat with us, but it might get boring if you couldnt shoot haha.
