River Bash ?

Postby JoeB1 » Jul Sat 25, 2015 12:44 pm

Wandering if anyone's thought of organizing a River Bash maybe here on the St. Joe. There's a good launch and pavilion here in Mishawaka at Maggies Landing behind the AM General plant where we could check in and maybe a have cookout afterwards. I think it would be a good time. There's some good small mouth, catfish, and walleye fishing on that stretch of the river. Just wandering if there would be enough interest ? :dunno

I think that would be fun. I have fished that part of the river some and would enjoy meeting IA members face to face.

Hope we can enough guys interested. I think would be a good time. Maybe in the fall would be the best time. If not this year maybe next. We need to get together more on the soft water.

We have always talked about having more soft water events. But they just seem to never work out. Yooper put one together a few years back at Mississinewa. Heck he even had lodging for those that were making the drive. If I recall correctly a grand total of 4 guys showed up and one of them was Yoop. It aint the easiest thing to pull off. We have seen a dramatic drop-off over the past few years in our ice fishing series.

Hopefully we can get more interest in all events. Evan if we can't get enough people for a official event maybe we could still have a get together anyway. Guess we'll see ? :fishing:

I am not trying to be a Debbie Downer Here but Numbers Just don't Lie....With Over 800 Registered Members less than 5% are Active..
This has become Just a Chit Chat Site.....Will Chalk it up as People Busy With Life...
No Fault of Anyone...Just The Facts......
As Mark Posted Set a Date and Lets see How The response Is ?????
