I sure was thinking of all of you last night when it was pouring and hailing. I saw a bunch of yaks  down by first street, I'm guessing you guys were getting a hot meal somewhere. Can't wait for the pics!!

Just got home and unpacked...  last man out...

Too tired to post pics, but in case anyone was wondering if conditions cleared up after the group left...  nope.  It got worse, in fact...  My trailer yak flipped from the wind on the way back, twice....  the wreck of the Drifter Fitzgerald....

Trolled around the shallow end past the launch 4-5, nothing more.  Only one fish for me all weekend, a 16.5" lmb.

A great time was had despite the rough weather!  And the food...  I think the food put out by everyone- especially Andy, Troy, Al-  raised the bar yet again.

My stomach aches from laughing and paddling.

After the pleasant shore lunch on Saturday with da boyz, I decided to try to beat the skunk and trolled down to the inlet stream on the south end. Pulled everything I had with me and at 215 PM decided to call it quits. Only problem is that we were almost a mile south of the ramp when the monsoon hit. Molly and I slogged it out paddling for 30 minutes against the 25 knot wind and blinding rain. Finally made it back to the ramp soaking wet but we had a great time. Hey if you are going to get skunked, go out in style.  :smt005 Thanks to Joel, Frank and all of the great NCKA folks which made it happen. Really had a great time inspite of the crappy weather and fishing. Next time I will make a bigger pot of chili.  :fat

Got to Del Valle boat ramp around noon time.  Paddle against the wind to the camp ground to meet the group.  Below is my picture story:

Wow... I've finally gotten some sleep!  :smt005  This was an EPIC event, in that IT WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!!!!  :smt044  Those that stuck it out through Saturday night are now christened as STORM TROOPERS

In all seriousness it was an incredible weekend filled with good times, good food, and great company!  Thanks so much to Mooch and Frank for pulling it all together and making yet another, UNFORGETTABLE and raging good time!

Finally.... The pics!
