we should all get together and...

Recommended Posts

have a friendly tournament! my buddies and i do this a couple times a year, just because we like fishing competitively. I'm sure this has been brought up before and i'm not saying to travel to another state, just get some people in your local area and have a tourny.. And i know about those of you that don't have a boat -> we should have non-boaters, a great way to meet new friends and learn from eachother. Of course all people would all have to agree on a date and wether or not to fish for money. I'm here in central Florida and know there's plenty of guys from the forum around this area.. What do ya say? All other areas should do this too and we can post it..or not :P

 It would definitely have to be area by area. Have seen posts on get togethers but don't know the results. So durned far apart and spread out! Have ya'll ever noticed what a diverce area this forum covers. All the way from flat and gator infested lakes of Fla to highland resevoirs in the Smokies to almost Delta like W. TN :o...

alger,

I tried to put one together this fall but the logistics are as follows.

Only you, Dave_w and mawilson fish Harris much.  Lc pointer, surfer and a few other guys fish Conway and Orlando lakes.  Rolo, warmer, Bocabasser, and Myself fish Toho, Kissimee, and south.  WestPalmDude and a few others fish way south.  Then you have the CHEATS      who fish StickMarsh every frickin day...SteveP, GW, and Avid.

That about somes it up for the Fl contingent on BR, unless I have missed someone...You can count me in if you can get it together....

well i was thinking of doing it a the kissimme chain because that's in the middle of most of us(here in florida..)... but it really doesn't matter and it doesn't have to be huge, just some of us getting together to fish! i totally understand how difficult it is to get everyone with a free day and willing to be at the same place, so all options are open..

Westpalmdude and I were just discussing this last week.  We thought it would be cool if we could do a get together at Disney.  Does anyone know if you can fish the lakes at Disney?  Wifes and kids can do Disney while we fish.

there's a couple of places around Disney; Butler Chain (closest, but with ramp fee) Kissimmee Chain/Toho( just south), Johns Lake(north on hwy 50), and Conway Chain (to the east) i'll leave it up to yall to pick where and when.

like i said it's really up to everyone if they want to fish for money or fun or both, doesn't make any difference to me. go ahead and throw some numbers and dates out there. when my friends and i do this we normally throw down $20-$30. and for dates i'll be the first to say im somewhat limited, but here's some dates March 22 or 23, April 19 or 20, April 26 or 27, May 3 or 4...

That would be me. I worked there in college and still know some people. Here's the deal. Bassnblvd and I were talking about doing this in October. This way the weather isn't overbearinly hot and we'd have enough time to put it together. We'd like to have this be a statewide Florida get together- I've been putting the regional ones toether down here for the last year or so. Let me begin to check it out and I'll get back to you.

Come on Jason, We know you can pull this off.  You can do it in between changing diapers and burping Jr.  

October sounds good to me.  How about the rest of yall?  It won't be sooooo HOT.  It will give those who need to, time to save the money to go.  And give me time to build up a jon boat in case they won't allow gas.

Okay, we'll shoot for October. I will begin an official thread for this sometime this week and we'll see if one of the mods will pin this on the board for us as well.
