I'm there..... I was going to show up Saturday morning and stay until Sunday afternoon. I think my brother is coming with me. He taught me how to fish better than 40 years ago, so he's to blame for the fishing addiction. Looks to be only be a 2 1/2 hour trip for me. I'm looking forward to it. Before I go out at night, I want to check out the area and mark some GPS locations and hazards.

You're right. It does look like a awesome area. I'm on vacation next week, so I think I'm going to take a ride up and check out the area. I'll be on my bike, with the wife, so I won't get out onto the water. Now, what should I see while I'm up there with the wife in another week. My wife loves good fish chowder. Who makes the best up there? It will give me a great excuse.

Question. Is there a place to pitch a tent for the night near the fishing grounds? If I have the family tagging along with me, they'll want to set up camp somewhere nearby.

Probably going to sit this one out....It's tuna time around here, I mate for Dan on the Mary D, so if it's weather, I'm committed....This time of year becomes a marathon for me, bass fishing Monday-Thursday, Tuna fishing Saturday, Sunday's and during the hot bite,I take vacation....

Maybe I'll be free in October.....By then, I'll need a break.....

Would love to see you there, but I believe I speak for all when I say" Hammer the hell out of 'em Roc"
I have 4 tent sites reserved, no deposit yet, so they will hold them as long as they can. We will need to send some $ their way ASAP. The campground is only 8 miles away from the beach. Email me for the info on getting a deposit in.
We have several wives joining us for this one, if your wife and kids want to come, as with ALL 24/7 gatherings, Bring them.
There is a samll charge for getting into the state park, $4.00. An overnight fee is $10.00, not clear if that is for camping. I will post as soon as info is clear.
Get your Emails to me or JK, [email protected]

Gunny,

I'm going to get a camp site. What's the process? I'm taking a run up there next week, and will visit the camp ground. Is there anything else I should check out while there. There's nothing like a guy on a mission .

What's the boat ramp situation? I was going to tow the boat up there. It's a POS, but gets me out there and is set up specifically for fishing. Smells that way anyway

The boat launch situation is this:

There are two boat launches along the way that i can think of.....one being in bath, and the other one being in Phippsburg....phippsburg is just a little ways closer then the one in bath. It's a few miles from there out to the mouth of the river where popham beach is....i just sold my boat today, i'm downsizing cause the wife and i are getting ready to build a house.....i am buying a different boat though, just won't be as big. I know the river very well, and can help you out with all of that information, so if you want email me with any questions you have [email protected]

What is the name of the campground? Dreaming of coming, but my schedule for brain surgery (yep...no kidding) may conflict. If it is at the start of Sept. I may be in.

Anyone bringing the wife or SO? My plans have changed slightly, so now I plan on spending the night in the surf. I haven't done that for a while, so I'm out shopping for a rod longer than the 7 footers I keep on the boat, and a sand spike. It looks like a great area, with lots to do, so I asked the wife if she wanted to come along, but if I'm fishing all night, the wife is asking what she is going to do if she comes along. I make my own wine, so I told her to drink all night, and she didn't go for that one. So if anyone has a wife staying back at the campground Saturday night, maybe they can get together and chat about whatever women talk about when they get together. Post, PM me, or email me at [email protected] if we have, or want to put together a plan for the woman folk.
