    Tommy I will arrive at Harrys my usual just in time for grits on Sat morning and be there until the 4th.I think we have room #10 then move to 27.We will probably fish Sat morning then come in around 1pm to rest up then go out about 5pm to catch bait and then fish at night until we get tired.I will have my youngest son and his wife with me,the one you met last time.That will pretty much be our daily schedule while we are there so if you want to have lunch at Harrys on Sun that would be fine or Bonneau, doesn't matter which,whatever is easiest.Ron are you arriving Mon the 3rd if so we could meet on Mon for lunch.:smile2:Sorry have to change that to dinner on Mon.

    OK Ron how about Harrys say 5 pm?:smile2:
     
  7. Jim, i have a question for you. In your earlier post you said your son and his wife would be joining you for the evening trip. How do handle the bathroom(or lack there of) situation on an extended length trip. My nephew has talked about bringing his girlfriend w/ us sometime and i wonder how u or anyone else handles this situation. i guess it depends on the woman.
    Thanks,
    Mark

    Fishing out of Blacks Sat. Sun. and Mon..........little farther to ride to get to fishing holes but this was the only place I could find any vacancy. Hope the weather clears up, been nasty here in Savannah. Off all week, and may come back after the fourth and try to get a little closer to Marion.

    I think I can make it, Ron, Jim. The wife has decided not to keep her monday doctor appt, so that should free me up. Hopefully I can get up there to fish, but I'll definitely try to make dinner. Where are you staying, Ron?

    Sorry, Roundhill, I forgot that you had posted you would be at Atkins’.

    Jim, I may get up there on saturday in time for breakfast, not sure right now. I'm trying to finish installing a new fishfinder, quit until morning, though. After I finish up, I may try to go somewhere tomorrow, time permitting. I've finally got all the wires pulled and the transducer mounted, that's the hardest part.

    Bubbasmouse, it’s too bad you have to work, but that should give you an incentive to speed up your next trip down.

    Foxhound, Black’s isn’t that far, depending on what kind of boat/motor you’re running. Everywhere is crowded during these holidays. What kind of boat are you in? I may be up that way this Saturday, in a 17’ Key West cc w/90 yamaha, blue bimini top will likely be UP!

    Santee Catman, what kind of boat will you be in, just in case I make it out toward 16 on the 4th, although doubtful? Not to be nosy, but what area do you stay in?

    I'll keep an eye open for you, Foxhound. I hope to be up there, probably launch from Harry's, but not sure where I'll fish yet. The forecast is for south winds 10-15, so I may try lake marion. You never know what the weather will do for sure, until it's over. LOL
     
  17. thanks for all the input on the bathroom situation guys.
    Tommy, i'll be in an older tracker bass buggy dl w/out a top. boat has
    Miss Allene on it. Our family lakehouse is on a cove off simmons creek which is between spires landing and rocks pond. We (our family)have had the the place since i was 3 yrs. old and i'm 41yrs. Hope to see you & everyone else out there.
