S-B Peddle/Paddle Kayak Fest!!

Alright....here is the scoop! The First Annual S-B Peddle/Paddle Kayak Fest!!! Alot of us guys have purchased kayaks recently and a few have had them awhile! There are several on here with them and I thought it would be fun to get together early one morning on the south shore and hit the water together then head back to BigFish Base Camp for a cookout!!! Just a fun day of yakking and fishing and then have some chow and a few cold ones or whatever your tastes are! The deal is it will be a pot-luck so everyone brings a dish or something!! I will have a grill here! Lets see how many have an interest?? I am thinking a Saturday end of August or first weekend in September (I will have to check the surf tides so I/We do not miss any canal tides which may be optimum?). So any thoughts??? Interest?? Lets talk about it??

Almost time to get our fish on!!!

Sounds like a good time! I'm in as long as I'm not away at the time. I'd like to actually get some use out of my yak this season.

If I can get a pass from baby duty I will be in!
never yakked on the south shore, I'm usually not allowed down there, can't you catch bonito down there at that time of year?

Yes. Sincere interest here Larry. Once everyone agrees on a date, I will pencil it in. We'll need to find a place that will accommodate everyone's vehicles. Maybe someplace like Hingham Harbor or Duxbury PP Bridge.
Depending on the number of vehicles, perhaps the Herring River dirt ramp in Scituate off the Driftway. You can squeeze quite a few trucks in there inside the stone wall.
Once we get a head count, we can plan some refreshments and food. I will definately pitch in for that as well.

That would definately rule out Hingham as well. You have to trudge through knee deep mud in order to get to open water.
At least in Duxbury, you don't go through mud and you can get into the deep water channels fairly quickly. Overall I'd say the Herring River might be the best bet since you put in right in deep enough water. And us paddlers can catch the incoming tide on the way back to the ramp. Not too far a paddle/peddle to the North River, South River and the mouth if we want to go out in front of 4th Cliff.
Maybe someone can come up with a better location, but that doesn't sound too bad to me.

I think its a perfect tide there that morning....dropping on the way out the mouth, will give us time by 4th to fish a while and catch the incoming tide back up the river and back to my house afterwards for a cookout!!

I'm gonna do everything I can to work it out so I can be there. I'm getting back from a week vacation on the 26th, so it might be a little difficult, though. I should know more in the next week or so.
