    What time are we meeting this Saturday? I would like a late afternoon / evening meeting time. It seems like the fishy population tend to agree with those times as well.

    Input anyone?

    Bob, Gary, Cuz, Mike, anyone else attending?

    I'm up for anytime, but I thought Cuz had to go in early the next day so he wanted to fish early.....I think anyway.

    I believe that was the 6th, that's why we decided to get together on the 13th. If we don't have a time in place I'll throw one out there, how about we meet up around 3:00pm ish. The ramp is just south of the Arch grounds underneath the railroad bridge. That's where I'll be at 3:00pm unless someone else has a thought?

    Cuz, should be on his way to New York, right about now, but the plans are for us to put in at Plattin Rock around 2:30 - 3:00 in the afternoon, and head to St.Louis and fish till sunrise Sunday morning. I was on the river a bit yesterday down here, and it came up I'd say 10ft or so since the weekend.

    This works great for me. Gary and I will probably put in at the boat club and make the run up the river. Well meet you guys at the ramp in any event at 3pm. That okay with everybody? Ryan, you can use the boat club ramp if you want since you havnt used your free pass.

    Sounds like a plan!!! Ed (bajacoop) I gave you my number, not sure where you're coming from or if you're familiar with the STL. Give me a call and I can get you directions, or we can meet up and you can ride down there with me if you like. Just let me know.

    Anybody else need directions to the ramp? It's pretty easy to find once you get along the river front. Just south of the Arch grounds and the president casino!

    Can't wait to see everybody there!

    Thanks Cuz I think I will do that. I just got back from looking at the ramp downtown and Im not sure how many trucks with trailers that we could fit in there. I can be there around 2:30 or a little earlier if needed.

    I think that there would be enough room for the amount of people that are planning on being there. Parking shouldn't be a problem,

    How far is that run for you guys Cuz? With that boat you got it probably won't take to long I'd imagine, how fast does that thing run anyhow?

    Ive got at least 30 gal but my boat only does about 37 mph so I dont know how long that would take me. If it will take too long then I can put in up there.

    I can hit 58 when I'm light Rat. I think well be running up with Ryan so I'll have the throttle pulled back quite a bit and enjoying some good gas mileage. Mrs Cuz starts to cry when I'm at 6000 RPM lol :smile2: I can make downtown in 30 minutes when I'm cooking. Well plan on 45 minutes with Ryan.

    As long as I can, I have to be energetic enough to keep up with my son all of Sunday so I am not sure. If it is after dark and the club is going to be closed I can always put in downtown. If I end up having to leave around 2 a.m. or so I dont want you guys to have to run down with me to open a gate.

    As far as I know, Kutter will be waaaaaaayyyyyyy up in the Northern part of MO for work weekend at his deer camp. You all know what that means... Clear skies!!! Sounds like a chilly one, so I'm gonna bring a jacket. Sounds like it's gonna be a good time. Can't wait. Anybody heard from Bob??
