    Oh man .... I thought it was this month... and nothing really happened... LOL.... so next month... like.... during tax time... I quess I could get excited... gas is going up, by the time that I get there, all the front row seats to the slough will be gone.... and all the prime camping spots are gone as well..... only left are the ones that smell from all the left over beer that was expelled from the last trip.... well, I check my calendar and see if I can do it.... maybe maybe... "the call from Yuma is blairing...so have to see what happens...

    Where is this located? I'm in Stockton. I have been surfing the web all night trying to get information on the Delta Mendota canal. Is the getogather in So. Cal or No. Ca.? Also how do you get there from Stockton? Do anyone have a map on the area?:0a31:

    Lord willing and the creek dont rise, Im planning on it. Sure be ready for a good howl. Hope to be a little early to get a well located camp, I dont walk too far. Was thinking about bringing the gas smoker to do up some meat, any challenges with that idea? Also how close to stores for ice and such?

    The road runs along the river. camp spots all along and and area to eat together and such. I will bring a tri tip or ribs. I never done a smoker:embarassed:

    Depends on what you mean as towns....lol. Mendota is several miles away, but has no grocerery stores. Kerman in further and has grocery stores. In Mendota, they have liqure stores and several resturants.
    I plan on getting out there early as well. I'll PM you my phone #

    Actually Robb, Mendota has three grocery stores and they are all on different corners of the same intersection. I got tired of paying liquor store prices so I did some lookin around and found them. Chorizo, eggs, and tortillas are a lot cheaper at a grocery store.:wink:

    I know I haven't been posting as much lately fellaz, but you know I will be there. I have a few buddies that will come out with me and maybe a few family members. Can't wait. I got a busy schedule the next few weeks. I'm going down to Norwalk this weekend for a wrestling tournament for my son. The next week I got Blythe with Brian"Bluehunter". The week after that maybe Sac for sturgeon. Then the gathering. So hopefully by the time the gathering gets here I'll have a few stories for everybody. Looking forward to it fellaz, see you all at the slough.

    Sean!

    I got wrestling practice with the kid. Got a big tourney comin up this weekend so we're trying to get him as much work as we can. The prizes are belts, like WWE or UFC. I think Rampage is going to be a guest speaker at the tournament. We'll see. I may not be doing any fishing around here until the gathering. If we don't go to Sac the weekend of the 10th we can hit the slough or James Rd.

    Sean!
