Talk about anything that floats your boat (no pun intended). This is general talk about anything not related to boating/fishing.

I would like to say I am in. If I come, I will have a boat with me. I don't know if my dad would be interested in coming on this sort of thing or not, so we would have to wait until a closer time, to see if he would be coming, or if I am free to venture this far alone.

It will depend on funds, but if there is someone else from the North Georgia, or Atlanta area who would want to ride up and back with me, and isn't planning on towing a boat (anyone is more than welcome to backseat in mine) and could help with gas costs, that would help a lot. Those cabins sound fairly realistic price wise as well.

Put me on the tentative list. Definitely going to try to go.

Back from my trip to Tennessee and to visit Dale Hollow. My apologies to the local members whom I mentioned I'd contact to see if they wanted to tag along - but, my plans changed and I ended up with a car full of in-laws with me on my day to Dale Hollow. I did talk with BassNBob on our way and he wisely declined to follow along and meet us there. None of the three resorts that we visited are nearly as nice looking as the web sites portray them to be – I guess that is to be expected. The water level was very low and this also detracted from the “look” of the resorts. They all had usable launch ramps even with the low water. I had my wife and brother & sister-in-law with us so I wasn’t able to get to all the places I would have liked. I did make it to three of the most promising based on comparisons previously done from their respective web sites and brochures. Of course, with the two ladies along, I got a point of view from their prospective – not a bad thing. The weather was VERY cool and, if it is that cool next year, the campers will definately be roughing it :lol:

I wrote up a synopsis of our visits and sent it to Jim for his review and final decision ong location and date for our ASSAULT on DALE HOLLOW.

The trees were almost fully turned and the pictures don't do the colors justice:

Either cuff em & stuff em - or - catch em and cook em! In my world, "catch & release" is an escape!

I should have some real concrete information about this trip by the end of the weekend. I will be speaking with the owner of the star point resorts on Wednesday. Fishingcop did some serious legwork and was able to get us a 15% discount on already low off season rates.

Stay tuned! :D
