    I will be leaving with my chuch this Sunday, we are going to Gulfport, to work an 87 year old womans house that was destroyed in the devastating hurricane.:sad2:

    She is staying with family members right now, our church is working along with some pro construction workers to get the house rebuilt, we will be doing things like putting shingles on the roof.

    I'll be gone until like July 3rd I believe, my family and I will go down to the Panhandle in Florida for a couple days on vacation after the house project. I was hoping to fish with some members from the BOC, but apparently there aren't in that area, but it's possible I might get to meet a few members in the Red River area. It would be an honor.

    It's going to be quiet around here for a few days.:lol:

    Thanks Jon, it will be a good expierence for me. Although I've never done any type of that contruction work, so it will also be a learning thing for me.

    I'll probably take some pictures while I'm there also, I'm sure it doesn't look near as nice as it used to when I went there before the hurricane, will be kind of depressing to see it first hand.

    Dang Zakk you've been running all over the country the last few months, lol.

    If you are going to be in the Wewahitchka, Fl. area stop in at the city building and ask for Don Minchew, he is the city manager there in Wewahitchka. He also is a guide for Cat fishing in the Apalachicola River system, he can point y'all in the right direction if your looking for Channels or Flats. Don and his wife Angie are good people, they will treat ya right. Y'all might want to contact him ahead of time and see about scheduling a trip out on the river. He is a member of the Boc, here is his profile. http://www.catfish1.com/forums/member.php?u=1518
    I have his email address and cell phone #, if you want it send me a pm.
    If ya talk to Don tell him Fatkat sent ya, lol.

    Zakk,I think what you are doing is a great thing and you will learn from it.On a construction site make sure you keep your eyes and ears open and be careful.There will be a lot of things happening all at the same time..As Ersel said we are 5 hours away but you are always welcome..

    Thanks everybody, it would be great to meet some more members, it's probably a little doubtful I'll get to go to the Red River area, but it's still possible, I'll know for sure in the next couple days.

    Fatkat, I think I know Don, isn't he the one that runs the Florida Catfish Classic? If so, then I have talked to him before and he gave me a free pass to the FCC.

    I'll be getting in touch with a few of you.

    Take it easy,

    Zakk

    hey zakk no late night catfishing for a roofer. them guys start at first light to beat the heat. make sure you leave a inch and half over hang on the shingles so the water dont run behind the gutter. have a safe trip.

    Well you'll be in my neck of the woods, unfortuntaly, we will be headed back to Colorado. If you want to get in some fishing from the Gulf, there is an awesome charter down there..Gabriella Charters (www.aheadboat@aol.com). Captain Dusty is wonderful and it will be well worth your time.
    Cant say thanks enough for what you're doing with the coast. Its a real honor to have people like yourself. Yes, theres STILL blue roofs in the area and another hurricane season is already here. Enjoy your stay on the Mississippi Gulf Coast!!:smile2:

    Thanks, I'll definitely be safe.

    Amy, too bad you won't be around, seems like there are no other members from that area. I clicked on that link in your post, but it came up as an "Error" I don't know why.

    I'm back, it was a great trip, everyone worked hard, and I also got into some pretty good saltwater fishing. I will give a report and pictures later!
