    Dale,
    Consider me there. Haven't been down there yet, but I hear lots of great things about the gathering in Blythe. Are you still figuring dates? I have a couple buddies that want to take the trip down with me too. We'll try and rally the troops up here and try to get as many people we can to make the trip down. Take it easy and look forward to meeting you and everyone else down there.

    Sean!

    Hey Scott,
    I was just thinking about something.
    (So that explains why my head hurts so much - lol)

    I don't know to much about boats & what they have or don't have but since I don't own one, but you are going to be doing most of you fishing from it, you may have some type of system on it (the boat:0a22:) that has an area for just that already. You may like to check with someone like Ray, Bluehunter or luckie33 about that first.
    (Just looking out for you Buddy)
    :wink:

    scott, check wall mart first for price on ariater. then check boat show. may be difference in prices.
    i'll be down there also, and if riverbud is gonna show you around, i may tag behind in my boat. shhhhh. i don't like that ramp at mayflowers though for a one person launch. usually launch about 15 miles down river at a place down there. can't think of camps name though.
    beginning to sound like a great gathering now. can't wait. (guess have to though.
    I'm redoing the inside of my boat in preporation for it. replacing all the wood, rug, windshields in it. lots of fun.will post a few pictures as soon as i find my doodad to upload pictures onto computer.

    I picked up an insulated bait bucket from Walmart & an inexpensive D cell aerator. The insulated bucket is a little bigger, but really keeps the bait lively, especially if you float some ice in it :wink:

    Good Luck!!
