    Hey Robert

    count me in too, never been there but maybe by Agust I will find the place ((LOL))

    Hey we just got in, did some more jug fishing, no Cats but caught three Needle Nose Gar, one was about 3 feet long, those jugs you showed me how to make are working out great, got my motor fixed, so it is great,
    am thinking about moveing the console up front, would give me a lot more room, got my Drift Master rod holders today, so I will be busy for the next couple of days.

    want to wish you and your family a Great Memorial Day, Robert,

    and a safe one

    Hey Tall

    It sounds like it is on the White River, if you are going to make a run to the Mississippi, I have been told that I can run to the Mississppi from Reyno, take the Current River to the Black River then the Black to the White, it is about 120 miles, that would be a ((((trip))))

    just where is the place ????????

    i plan to get there on friday morning, 21st......... campground only has 21 sites ,so reservations will be needed i expect ..... sites20,18,16,15,13,11 have the most shade ........make reservations at Recreation.org... type in dumas ,arkansas , wilbur mills . date of arrival and length of stay and u can view a map ...... phone number is 1 877 444 6777 ............the number at the campground is 870 382 6391 , but they wouldn't make reservations last yr , had to use the .org number ........... we will need to watch the water level to make sure the ramp is open... sometimes the river gets too low to launch .....

    thanks for that info coach , i know the park doesnt have as many sights as pendleton park , so we need to get them reserved soon or they will fill up fast. I also plan on being there on the 21st , so i will see ya there. Cliff im glad to see you will be joining us again and dont forget your jugs :smile2:

    Is this an open invite to any board members?

    Do you guys usually let rookies tag along when you go out or is it every man for himself when the boats launch?
