    Went out yesterday morning early to give it another try. The water was still brown, mayflies shells all along the shoreline and the wind nearly blew me to the headwaters. I fished for three hours and zip, zero, nothing, not even a bite. Oh wait I did catch a rock bass, sorry. Wanted to go in the evening but family obligations prevented that so I went when I could.
    I am trying to arrange my schedule to be a part of the August 9th gathering. I have a tent, cot and sleeping bag so that part is all set. Besides fishing gear and a couple dishes to pass what else should I bring? I plan to take 131 south to Grand Rapids and I figure I-96 south to Lansing but I will need directions from there. What time are we meeting? Friday evening or Saturday morning? Really looking forward to this and I am pushing for the time off.
