    You will have better luck if you wait until Jan/Feb. If you go sooner, keep us updated

    I will be posting up soon as I have details. I'm planning for as many Gateway Guys/Gals to attend Uncle Sci Fi as possible. For those of that attended last year, we sure had a blast. Food, Fellowship, and unlimited Skipjack Catching. :wink:

    They are alot of fun Chris. Maybe you can come down with us this year. This past year we had a buffet style breakfast, seminars from several folks, quite a few exhibitors including Steve from Catfish Safari and Aqua Lung, The Rod Shop, Tite Lock Rod Holders and many others. We followed up the banquet and gathering with some good ole fashioned SkipJack Fishing. Really was a Great time.

    jerry and i went to cumberland city today looking for a very rare catfish bait SKIPJACK.... :smile2: we got there about 8:30 this morn. and we left about 12:30 we only got a little over four hundred. we were getting them as fast as you could cast out. most of the time we got two at a time. useing white curly tails. so if you need some of this rare catfish bait i would head down there, they are running real good now.

    I like the 4 to 8 inch ones better than the big ones myself..
    Hey a word of advise to anyone going to sci fi's this year.. If you take Dan along with you make sure you have a pickup.. His cooler leaks and you'll never get the smell of skipjack out of your carpet... hehehe.. Sorry Dan I just had to do it.. Make sure you take more ice chests than you think you will need or you'll have to do like Cuz did and buy out Walmart when you get there.. I'm planning on staying longer this time, no more overnight trips, I missed most of the fun.. And it'll be my 1 year anniversary this year.. When I got back from it last time the wife had moved out and made me single again.. This year we need to have more people than the Kentucky folks do at it.. So if at all possible plan to attend.. Hey Bob, you old fart do you need a map to get there, I know how forgetful you are getting.. Don't forget to write the day on your calender with your crayon..
