    Gus mentioned Jack would like it if it wasnt too far away for him. somewhere in the middle of the state would probably be fairest thing to do.

    Shot a PM to Paul , and he turned the Poll on. Thanks Paul. I could only pick 10 , so I listed the ones that I see most people posting about. I left Milford out, because we already had the June Gathering there, and I figured everyone might want to try another reservoir. If I was wrong, then speak up. If there is any other reservoir that you like , that isnt listed ,then just post it, and we can count votes for it also. :big_smile:

    Yeah JJ, I know , Ive been down there once this season, but I didnt take my cat gear. Me and Richard were chasing crappie and white bass, and they werent biting. I saw a guy catch about a 15 or 16 lb. channel on cut shad, and I was pissed that I didnt bring my cat rods. Its running good right now, we might have to go there this weekend. :wink:

    The Frau and me would be ready for this. I didn't vote, mainly because I'm not familiar with any of them. The only other lake we've camped at was Marion. I like J.J.'s suggestion though, somewhere centrally located for everyone.
    We plan on visiting at least a couple of different lakes this summer, if anyone can offer some suggestions where we'd find some good shore fishing I'd appreciate it. Don't want to take the Catoon with the price of gas.
    I'll check out some of the one's mentioned and see what they look like, but we'd be up for where ever the majority chooses.

    Kristine, I see you down there. This is just a rough draft. Once we get an idea of where we are going to hold it, we will start the official thread in the Gatherings forum. I promise. :big_smile:

    The majority of the Kansas members are in Northeast Kansas, but Wilson would be the closest for Jack and Gus. I voted for Perry, but Ill be up for whatever. With it being a few months off , itll be plenty of time to save some gas money, and plan for.

    Perry,Clinton,Pomona,Redmond, have some great spillway fishing, with spots to fish along the river down stream. This helps for us guys who dont have a boat.

    Redmond has an awesome spillway with the Neosho running through it. Lots of flatheads in that river from what I gather. Here is a pic of it. Good campground, with Group Shelter. Lots of bank fishing spots.

    What dates look good for you all ? Like Casey said, the first weekend after labor day, which would be Sept. 5,6, and 7, and Casey was talking about fishing on the river , well, Perry and John Redmond both have good camping by the spillway, with the river running downstream from there. :big_smile:

    I voted for Redmond, but it really doesn't make any difference. I'm so talented that I can get skunked on any body of water!!
