RW and I have our cabin booked. I sure hated to drop over $200 for the non-refundable reservation so far in advance, because the doctors told me I have only three months to live. On the bright side, RW has promised that he will refund my money if I die. Now, that's a stand-up guy!

Rhino, have I mentioned that I just installed a Lowrance HDS-8 with sidescan? I doubt that I will ever brag about my alarm system again (although it still works great.) However, be prepared to watch an incessant display of the images captured with the HDS. Uh, if I could catch a few bass. that would be even better.

No, I hadn't heard about the HDS-8.  But I'm sure I will come April.

The side imaging isn't as important when I'm home.  There are no waters I fish that have submerged creek beds, bridges, timber, etc., which is where the side imaging really shows its stuff.

It will find the occasional rock pile, or man made brush pile, and if you pay close attention, bait balls off to the sides of the boat.

I find the hot maps premium which shows the bottom contours in great detail to be as much help as the side imaging when searching for fish holding bottom.

Fantastic, I got knocked out of last years trip, but this is in my backdoor, so I'll definately make it a couple days this time. I've never fished the Ky area past ginger bay, so I guess I'll find new waters at this trip.....

Kentucky Lake is only about 4 hours from where I am moving to, so I will probably come, but I doubt I can do the week days. I will try to come the first weekend. Drive down Friday night, fish Saturday and Sunday then come home. I have an older (96) Skeeter that anyone who wants can join me on. I am a poor fisherman and have never been on Kentucky Lake, but I guarantee we'll have fun!

Hmm...Somehow your avatar tells a different story!

Hope to see you there!

To all you guys who say they're going:  MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS NOW!  Otherwise you won't have any place to stay.

Fair warning.

My reservations are made.  I'm checking in on Friday.  Hope to be there early enough to do some Friday fishing, but certainly on the weekend.

This "old guy" needs a head start on the young guns.

If everything goes according to plan, I'll have a seat (or two) open on Saturday and Sunday.

Man has it been that long alredy!  Guys these trips are so worth going and so in expensive concidering the fun you have.  Its worth it just to make a few hours and put the names and faces together. Its amazing how much and how fast you can lern too.

I think the best part is the new lifelong friends you'll make (simplejoe shoot a pm I'm back online again lol)

I really wish I could make this one but I am in nevada now unemployed and have a baby on the way.  I hope to move back to NC by tax time so next year I'm in. Untill then I can't wait for the pix and updates!

Have a blast!!!

Count me in again for the first part of the trip. We can't be there all week, but will be there Saturday, leaving Tuesday morning.

The Saturday Night Wine & Cheese Soiree will again be offered. With a small change. It seemed everybody last year was looking for something more substantial than just cheeses and munchies. So, this year we'll have a sandwich bar; roast beef, ham, wheat and rye bread, mustard, mayo, chips and dip, veg and dip, etc. I'll still have wine, cheese and fruit. Just in the planning right now, so I'm open to suggestions.

Leo, looking forward to sampling this years pressing of Chateau Leo. Tell Old Cranky I found some more ice wine too.

Hey Wayne, got a couple of new-to-me brews you need to sample.

Can't wait.

See you all there.

Cheers,

GK

And I will do my best to find something to your liking around here.

Dark? Light? Bitter?   What is your preference?

Ah, who am I kidding.  I'll just bring some good chit.   ;)

The Merlot and Pinot Noir has been bottled last weekend. The Merlot was outstanding this year. The Pinot Noir is a bit on the Moonshine side. Not Whiskey but a bit POTENT. Maybe I sampled more then I can handle. Anyway some will be making the trip.
