Yak Rats June Camping Event- June 11

Ok.. I have been drafted into organizing a camping trip.
So far what we have sort of solidified is that we are going on June 11 and will be paddling out to West Island off of Sakonnett Point RI. This place isnt really a camp ground, and is a home for a lot of seagulls, but I know a few who have camped out there and have had a blast.

For those who do not know of the history of West Island, at one time it was the home of the West Island Fishing Club.. much like the Newport Fishing club on Gooseberry Island, but not as large as the Cuttyhunk Club. All that is left is some ruins.

Sounds like a great trip! Is a permit needed to camp? When would you sleep though would be too busy fishing.

What better place than an Island out in the middle of nowhere for his YakRats initiation

I'm definitely gonna try to make this one. I've wanted to fish West Island ever since reading an article about it years ago. Not sure what the family commitments are going to be for that weekend, though. If I do go, I think I'll sleep with one eye open. The Yak Rats are a pretty scary group.

Looks like I'm in. All I had to do was send my wife on a girls spa weekend and I got the go ahead for a few overnight fishing trips this season.

I'm pumped for this trip. Hopefully the fish will be cooperative, but even if they aren't, it should still be a blast.
