Scott, thanks for your invitation to post this! sHa_clap2 Would like to encourage everyone to attend!! sHa-shakeshout




Time to mark your calendars! This fall's Aquasport Octoberfest Reunion will be October 10-11 back at Southport, NC. Last year was a bit late in the season, so we are moving it up a couple weeks - should be nice weather and lots of bait in the water! :239_fishing: As usual, everyone can count on great food, fun, and friendship! :605_thumbs_up:

Yes, we are two months out, but now everyone can make plans to be there! We will have more details later - just plan to be there!!! :1992_beer_cheer:




Yep, Two months out! PLENTY of time for everyone to mark their calendars to attend this fun event! We have a GREAT time every year...and this will be the fourth consecutive reunion!

This year, we'd like to make it the biggest yet! The more the merrier! Those of you from faraway...jump on a cheap flight and come on! It is absolutely gorgeous here in the fall....warm, bright blue days and cool nights!

You'll have a blast....and eat like kings and queens! sHa-shakeshout Looking forward to meeting you, please join your friends this Octoberfest!

Thanks!!

The Admiral and I will be there, for sure.
We can't wait for another great reunion! It will be nice to see the usual suspects and I also hope we get some new blood!

It's a great casual gathering of boat people for some good food and fishing! :239_fishing: :1992_beer_cheer:

I want to thank Captain John and Betsy for the hospitality and the use of his rental home.

A big thank you to Scott for the use of his boat and all the gear we used. Thanks for tying all rigs. Awesome net throw for all those pogies.

It was great to see Lewis and Bridget, always a good time with Lew. Thanks for perfect flavoring King fish and all the prep and clean up Bridget.

Nice to see JD and his cousin, Jamie. Loved watching the foosball tourney.

Jon and Ronda are always a pleasure, really nice people. Enjoy all the stories. Great Big catch Jon. 28 pounds.

Thanks to Bondo Bill for Smoke Salmon.

All in all, a great group.

Melanie and I had an excellent time.
We arrived about dusk on Thursday.
ImageHeaded to our Inn.
We stay at the Captain Newton Inn.
It is right on Moore street and they are awesome folks running the inn.

We were a little tired so we walked down to Provisions.
ImageA great casual restaurant there in Southport.
Had a great meal, huge Shrimp and crab cakes.
Image
Yes, it was excellent food.
For those who do not know.
Melanie and I have been together over 25 years.
We celebrated 21 years of marriage on the 10th Oct.We had the double hook up of King Fish on Scott's Boat.
I am a very lucky guy for sure.

Went back to the inn after a little walk around the beach area.
Image

We went to bed and got s good night sleep.
Woke up to this sunrise
Image
Grabbed a little Cheesegrits and went to the launch.
Have some launch photos but here is the fishing.
Melanie getting peeled off on a screamer.

Scotty is next on a bendo rod.Image

The ride back in, after an awesome non stop day.

The guys catch next to us at the dock.
I think Scotty would agree, we did much better than this size for the whole day.

The last working shrimp boat in Southport.
[/URL[URL=http://s1138.photobucket.com/user/icemanbryan1/media/IMG_1074.jpg.html]Image

Had a lay over in Atlanta.
Grabbed some dinner at PF Chang's.
We both got a back massage and hopped the flight to LAX[/URL[URL=http://s1138.photobucket.com/user/icemanbryan1/media/IMG_1112.jpg.html]Image


We were home by 11 pm Pacific Time, got some needed rest.
All in all, an awesome 2 days in Southport.
Great fun, good friends and excellent food.
We are very fortunate to be a part of this.
