Kayak fishing the Lone Star State...

ok...Ron wants me to make a post so he can sticky it. This will be the gathering at Inks Lake on May 16. This is an informal gathering of small boat builders, those who have any interest at all in building or looking at some of these boats, AND any others who just get off on going to gatherings and meeting a bunch of like minded people. The official time to actually gather--at the day use area in Inks Lake State Park--with the boats and/or as a group will be from 10:00am until 12 noon. Before and after that just have a ball anyway you can. I plan on arriving on friday and staying till sunday. I don't know about anyone else but I'll bring two boats. You can try'em out.
It doesn't matter if all you have is a plastic boat. Come on out! There's good camping and fishing. Make a day of it--have some fun.

Questions or comments--make your post. I've got my reservations, I know some other do as well.

It looks like my wife and I will be there. That looks like a really beautiful park. I am interested in starting to build a kayak and would like to talk to someone that already does.

And to top it off that looks like a great place to paddle. We will be coming from Huntsville.

See you there! Already got the wife's permission..lol It helps that she paddles also and wants to go..

I have my camping reservations there, Friday through Sunday.

I'm planning on taking a vacation day from work Friday and heading out there Friday morning.

I have TKF stickers to put on my truck, but I need to wash some of the dirt of first so they'll stick, LOL.

I am really looking forward to it.

I'm in. I'll bring my canoe, which is my fishing boat now, and an Outer Island. The OI may be brand spanking new, or old and beat up. Just have to see how the current project comes along. :D

Gerald, what boats are you bringing?

Not sure if I'll be able to make it yet as it is crunch time for me to get my stuff together for college and finish out High School... that month will be filled with AP testing to find out if I get all my college credit hours. Hopefully I'll be available that weekend. Looks like the whole park will be reserved to TKF members pretty soon though...so I better figure it out fast lol.

Oh, I think I'll bring my old marathon boat and what strider calls the "conquista"--which is, in any case, a pretty good river fishing and paddling boat. But then...so is the marathon boat...

We will be up for the day with our plastic boats. Hope to get some borrowed seat time and bend an ear on design considerations.

Luck of the draw. Reservations only "guarantee" there'll be somewhere in the park for you to hang your hat, but exactly where is first-come-first-served. That's why I'm reserved for earlier in the week, so I can get a better pick of campsites. I'll just have to see if I can endure a couple extra days at ILSP. :wink:

Ron

Wow, That's exactly what I did.... I didn't even get to specify what type of site I wanted. I was told the ONLY the hike in sites were available. I guess it depends on who answers the phone. Oh well, I will just play it by ear when I get there.

Several years ago when Inks lake was booked they recommended a nearby Lower Colorado River Authority campground (LCRA) on adjacent Lake Buchanan. You might check on the LCRA campsite situation.
