    Hey guys, wanted to see what some of you think about a mini gathering this winter in the cincy area. Maybe just pick a weekend where a few of the local guys can get together for some blue cattin. Nothing crazy that is gonna drain everyone's wallet, just a 1 day thing where we meet in the morning and fish all day. Think it would be kind of neat. Let me know what you all think..Any local guys from Ky and Indiana would be more than welcome also. If it turns into a bigger gathering then so be it, just want to keep it as cheap and simple and possible. Maybe some of the northern Ohio guys just drive cars down, and the local guys take the boats to keep it more economical. Again don't want to break the bank here, could be pretty fun though. If anyone has any ideas on dates that would be good let me know. If guys from around here want to PM me also, so I know who may be interested, and who will have boats and how many people can fish off it and keep it comfortable.... Let me know....:cool2:

    I WAS ALREADY COUNTING ON IT SO DEFINITELY COUNT ME IN . I'M AT WORK RIGHT NOW AND FISHING TONIGHT BUT I'LL PM YOU WHEN I GET A CHANCE. FISHING IS TAKING PRESIDENCE OVER MOST THINGS GOING ON IN MY WORLD RIGHT NOW. SO IF I CAN AVOID CONFLICTS WITH WIFE AND CHILDRENS PLANS ANY THING ELSE I'LL GLADLY PUT OFF TO GO ON ANY WEEKEND.

    Ramps I am not sure, I know Schmidt shuts down alot in the winter, and if the river is up at all, sometimes the public landing shuts down for no apparent reason. The only ramp that is always open is in new richmond. We will just have to see what everyone wants to do.

    Ok, the first tentative date I was looking at is Saturday November 22, actually the week before Thanksgiving. Let me know what you all think about that, I wouldn't think to many people would be traveling for the holiday that far ahead of time but who knows. Let me know guys..

    Tbull, that date would probably work for us, since the 15th is our clubs GMR tourney. And about the cold, my boat has a fully enclosed Bimini with rear/side curtains and a toasty warm catalytic heater so Ill be out there in style my friend. I was just saying that before it gets below freezing would be best, so late Nov would be perfect.

    I hope to have my boat set up with some curtains before too long, I got the top just have to make some curtains. Remember guys its a tentative date, I dont want to interfere with too many people's plans. I realize that everyone will not be attending just the way things go, if anyone has any other dates they want to throw out by all means go ahead, like to get as many people together as possible. If enough people think this date will work then we can go for it..:wink:

    Hey Travis:

    Yeah I'd like to do something like that. Not sure what my work schedule is going to be like, but maybe with some advance notice, we could make it happen. I'd be happy to take some guys from Northern Ohio down with me, as I live in Lambertville, MI, just north of Toledo. That way, we could help minimize the cost of fuel. Let me know when you have in mind, and I'll see if it works for me.

    I would like to do this, but no boat here untill next year. I think I could learn a few things from you guys. Good luck and lots of fun
