Let us know when you nail it down and we will supply the shirts for this event also. Since Jerry is going to the april gathering does this mean I get to go to this one? I've never been west coast.

Any way I can help let me know.

Thanks Bruce,

I have been talking to Chris at Al's Worms about a poll to narrow down the location. I don't know how to go about putting one up. Anything to light a fire under this thing would be appreciated. Already getting support from the more experiences members.

Thanks again

Hey guys be aware if your coming from out of state you may be turned away if your bringing a boat.

Ca is experiancing some egos in the sence that if you come from another waterway your boat better not have one I repeat 1 drop fo water in it. that includes if its raining.

They are worried about zebra muscles, they shut one lake down completly to all boats form the way I understand it. I think it was caterac.

you can check info on westernbass.com

Hey Del how are you? Doing any tournament stuff?

Mead and Mohave are full blown into the Quagga Crisis. dropped a camera in mohave a few weeks back and they are everywhere. It is amazing how clusters attatch to your line when fishing.

Anyway CA is getting bad because of the Quagga so if fishing is involved in the Meet you may want to stay away from SO NEV or show up and we get enough local boats for who ever wants to go fish.

LedHed,

With all the excitement with contamination looks like fishing is going to be out. So maybe a couple days in Vegas it might just be. When is the ICAST show?

Hey Chirmy, LTNT, hope all is going well, I havent been fishing much lately did goto amistad last week till sunday. Absolute blast. kinda nice to get away for a while.

Ca getting bad is an understatement they are getting stupid as usual, they shut down a complete county this week and all boats have to pass through a checking station now and get a special permit. its free for a little while then it will cost you to get a permit just to have a boat or bring one into the county. heres some info

Article Last Updated: 03/28/2008 05:10:42 PM PDT

Clear Lake, with its 44,000 surface acres, will be the first major body of water in Northern California to require all boats entering Lake County to undergo a mandatory inspection for quagga and zebra mussels.

On Tuesday, the Lake County Board of Supervisors passed an interim urgency ordinance establishing the inspection and decontamination program. The program starts April 8.

Complete Article:

Boat inspections mandatory starting April 8 - www.record-bee.com

From the article -

"According to Fulton, the way the program will work is that a boater entering the county will be directed to a boat inspection station where the boat will be inspected by a certified inspector. If the boat is determined to be clean of mussels and their lava (called veligers), the operator will be given a sticker that he or she must place on the boat. The sticker and inspection is free from April 8 through June 30. After June 30, there will be a small fee for the inspection and sticker. The stickers are valid until Jan. 1, 2009. If the boat fails to pass inspection, it will be directed to one of the four decontamination stations located around the county. The decontamination process includes washing the boat, its bilge, livewells and trailer with water that's at least 140 degrees."

I know some people from az that went up to fish one of the CA lakes( last month), they got checked going into the lake like normal and there boat had water on it. They got turned around and said they couldnt fish it cause there boat had standing water. they also wanted to impound the boat....... Heres the stupid part....... The reason the boat was wet cause it was raining cats and dogs at the time. those people at teh check stations are about as brite as a broken lightbuld. btw the boat was brand spanking new and never been in the water.

LedHed,

FYI - ICAST 2008 Info:

The International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades, better known as ICAST, is the world’s largest sportfishing trade show. The show, being held at the Las Vegas Convention Center, July 16–18, is the cornerstone of the sportfishing industry, helping to drive sportfishing companies’ product sales year round. From buyers to media to exhibitors, ICAST annually attracts 7,000 members of the international sportfishing community to the Convention Center.

If you go, redg8r would like somebody to do some reporting and take some photos and maybe some videos. Be cool if that would work out for you guys.

“With all the excitement with contamination looks like fishing is going to be out. So maybe a couple days in Vegas it might just be.” Yeah – the snail thing is a real pain – had to deal with it in the Sierras last year. Vegas is easy to get to and there is a Bass Pro also.

Anyone know about fishing conditions, during mid July, in Vegas?

The one problem with ICAST - it is closed to the public. Not sure how many members TU can get in, or if redg8r is willing to consider this venture.

A requirement of participation would be that members must submit a report or pictures of the ICAST show.
