NY Family Summer Get Together!

Recommended Posts

Well boys...it seems like only a few of us keep in touch in the Open Water Season.

I propose a get together on the Big "O" for a small friendly fishing derby. That is if the rest of you guys can take your SKIRTS off for the day cry

Let's see how many boats we have:

Doug=1

Todd=1

Tuzzy=1

Otis=1

Franky=1

Jimmy=1

That makes room for an easy 10 people and 8 skirts...8 meaning that Todd and I never put our skirts on wink

We shall put the Commisioner (Timmy) in charge of the date, time and launch. Only if you want to and have time!!!

Timmy, I hope your Umpiring is going well...have you had to eject any unrully's. I would love to see you bounce some wiseguy out of the game for kicking dirt on your cleats shocked

Haven't had to eject anyone yet Doug but have warned a couple of guys, no biggy. Saw a situation when a guys team in the playoffs first round only had 9 players and a guy got tossed in the 6th with the lead and they had to forfeit the game. His teammates didn't let him leave the parking lot without a few well placed punches.

Depending on the weekend and scheduels we would come up too. Bring up the boat or jump ship pirate style with someone. For years we were up there almost every weekend through the 90's. Dont get up much now except a few fall trips...

Im sure you could ad Lee to that list also...

Congrats Steve!!!

Steve...why don't you pick a couple of weekends YOU are available and we can work from there. You will be traveling the farthest distance, then DC & Tank 2nd. I think Todd, Otis, Kirkville and I are the most flexible.

Why don't you just come up anyway and a few of us can get together...I want you and Cindy to come up th the restaurant so I can work some magic on your palat.

Give me a call Steve, I would like to get you out on Caz and put you on some Callies. I have a bunch of spots marked that we can get after as many Callies as you can handle cool

Later!!!!!

Skirt??? Well I intended to make a comment about where the skirt would be . . .like a hat, but I refrained. Sounds good to me, just need to know when, as I have a couple of bass tournament schedules I'll be hitting.

Steve, congratulations . . .a little late from me, but thank you for your years of service, sacrifice and loyalty to this country and the uniform you wore. The Corp is lossing some fantastic experience. I salute you Gunnie!

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
