My Dad and I will be making the trip again this year. Just booked Cabuin #6 for 5 nights. Fork is where my Dad caught his biggest Bass at 11.2 lbs. He's been looking for an excuse to get back to Fork and see if he can brake his record catch. See y'all in May.

I went to Satin Marine today and they had a brand new stainless prop that had been ordered for someone else who didn't pick it up. They also let me lake test it and it seemed to run good. I got it for just a little more than an aluminum, so I'm good to go now.

Not a tournament, just a fun excuse for a get together! If its at all like last year, people kind of go fish and do their own thing during the day. Then there is a get together with food in the evenings. Even though people go and do their own thing you are still bound to see each other out on the water!

Last year at Rayburn was a blast!

Ive got waterfront cabin #7 for this year!

They have slips. I'm not sure if they're free w a room or you rent em. I personally wouldn't trust leaving my boat in the lake but several folks do.

I figure the ticket for a 12 year old driving is a lot less than a DUI

As some of you already know, I don't partake in adult beverages so if anyone's not staying at Popes and needs a ride, I can shuttle. I have been known to get a bit loopy from overeating fried crappie though!

There's 3 good places to fish in that picture alone that I know of! Course 1-2 will depend on water level when we get there but the other should give up some fish each day.

We drove through Pope's Landing today to check it out. I'd never been there before. We saw the cabins, they look nice. They appear to be "tiny house's", I'm sure they are nice inside, too.

I just bought some land outside Alba that is about 10 minutes from the Fork Dam, by the time the fishing weekend comes around I plan to have my camp set up there, and I want to get in on the fishing. I will have my 25' fishing pontoon on the lake if anyone needs a ride.
