I usually fish with Tom (gmetime24) being that I don't have a boat but if he was unable to make or he wanted to bring someone else and one of you other guys didn't want to fish solo I would love to partner up and get one of your boats.

That sounds good to me as well, more of a social thing where we can just meet up and fish and have fun. Doesn't matter to me if money is involved or is a tournament, I just like being out on the water and having fun fishing. Hang out for a bit after, have a beer, that sounds like a good time to me.

Yes sir.  Sometimes the tournament aspect as well as secrecy takes away from fishing being fun.  Tom and myself are not shy about saying what worked and what did not.  With that said, I would like to propose we put some dates on our calendars for two days a month.  That way it wont feel like a hastle to go each week and we will have it on our schedule so we know to look forward to it.

I propose:

Wednesday evening events from 6 pm until 9 pm (9:30 if enough light)
June 11th and 25th
July 16th and 30th
August 13th and 27th
September 10th and 24th

$20 per boat (optional) or (bragging rights :)  which ever we decide at the ramp
5 fish limit
We will weigh the fish in a bag using a hand scale
Alabama rigs are allowed  ;D

Secret sharing following each event

What do you all think?

Most of them work well for me as well. I am also unavailable on June 25th, will be leaving for camping on the 26th at Mullett Lake so will be getting everything packed up for that, and also July 30th I will be camping down at Algonac State Park on the St. Clair River and fishing LSC for a few days. Everything else sounds good. We could also get together some Wednesday evening coming up here in May and just get together and meet everyone and just go out for some catch and release fun. May 14th would be a good day for me and pending weather I was already planning on going to Sanford that day.

That sounds good.  I hope to have my boat ready to roll by then.  I will plan on being on Sanford on the 14th.  Looking forward to meeting you guys.

I checked the dates and I should be good to go for some of them. I will be bringing out my 6 year old boy with me on a few of the nights if that's ok with you guys. Which I'm sure it is. Lol! I'm also definitely good to go on May 14th as well. And whoever is gonna be on Sanford opening weekend, also let me know because I will be there both Saturday and Sunday. As a matter of fact I drove by Sanford today and stopped into the Beach to take a look. Ice is pretty much gone in the whole lake with the exception of portions of the east side both north and just south of the 10 bridge. I walked out on the docs at the launch and so far the clarity of the water is not so bad, especially for Sanford this early. I know the rain will determine things though.

Last year the clarity on Sanford was zero.  That remained true for a good portion of the summer.  Not sure about spring.

Since not many can make the June 25th, do you want to reschedule that date or skip it?

I should be able to make that may 14th day as well. As for the June 25th day I'm ok either way, skipping it or trying to reschedule.  It would have to be the Wednesday after the 11th for that to work for me. I also noticed July 16th is my birthday but I still might be able to make that one

Depends on what the water clarity might be like on the north end. Most likely I will be sticking to the main lake between US10 and the flats

Lets not plan on the 25th and skip that date.  The other dates are legit though. 

Also, even if we wanted to alternate between Sanford and Wixom, we couldn't.  Wixom is scheduled to be dropped 8-12 feet beginning in June and coming back up in September.

Not sure if anyone is interested but the website for tracking the Wixom Lake Dam Project is www.wixomlakeassociation.org

If you go there, they do have conflicting information.  On the main page, it has a link to "Wixom Lake Draw Down Update" and it states the work is postponed a year until September 2014.  At the top of the page there is a link to "News or Reviews" and that states the draw down will be June-August 2014.  Once says 4 feet and one says 8 feet. 

I will try contacting a board member to see if they can provide any updates or accurate information.  Right now, it is set up for either of the two options above.
