I usually get up to A-Bay a few times each summer. Love it up there. I have reservations for the August poker run. Hope to maybe get up for Pirates weekend and/or July 4th. I am going up tomorrow fishing. Will be staying down by Rockport. Not bringing the boat, it's not much good for fishing. I've heard the water level is up this year. Don't know if thats really good or bad. Those damn rocks seem to get you no matter what.:angry1:
Good to hear from you, I thought I was the only one who runs that area. Where in Rockport are you staying, my parents live down there. Next time you head to the bay let me know, we can show you the best locations to drop anchor, along with 50 or so other boats.
We're staying at Caigers. It's a liittle below Ed Huck Marina. We'd be glad to hang with you sometime.I know of Lake of the Isles and Potters beach. I'd like to get the tour of some other hot spots sometime. Maybe we can hook up at one of the poker runs.I'm definitely going in August. Not so sure about the one in June. I'll give you a shout if and when we go.
Hey Hammer I know that spot, small little town but if your there to fish you'll have fun. Sounds like you know of the two biggest spots to anchor, there are many more. It all depends on how many boats we are with and the direction of the wind, there are some pretty remote and hidden coves. We'll be there in August for the big poker run also there is one out of A bay in June or July, can't remember, Buddy of mine is getting married that weekend.
Tom, Alexandria bay is probably your best location, lots of hotels and motels if you don't sleep in you boat. Rivers Edge is the best by far. At night A bay is one big street of many bars at the town dock, gets pretty interesting. You'll want charts if you don't know the water,everybody is pretty friendly. Let me know if and when you are comming around and we'll hook up, show you the best 1000 isld can offer, you won't regret it
