Title: 2006 Ultimate Bass Ralley Location
Post by: DAWG on August 18, 2005, 07:51:49 AM
I know everyone has been waiting patiently for the big decision on where and when this is going to be held.Well the waiting is finally over  ~c~

Dale Hollow Lake  

We are planning for it to take place between the middle of May and the middle of June, so we need everyone that plans to attend to get in tough with either Bman  or myself DAWG as for we are the ones planning this event for the site.

What we need to know are the dates during this time frame that would be best for everyone, so we can make the necessary arrangements for everything.So the sooner everyone lets us know the the sooner we can set the date in stone.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation in this , and we hope to see as many as possible attend.

So lets keep the dates coming in so we can get a better  :-* .

DAWG sounds good to me and Fish and me could stop by and see you on the way by  ;) we have to get down there early so we can find the best spots to bank fish from  ~roflmao ~roflmao

I think we may spend the week down there! A 10-12 hour drive is a little far to drive only to spend a couple of days. Then again, if the gas prices don't come back down I may only be able to afford lodging for a couple of nights after spending so much gas money.

WoooooooHoooooooo ;D

I can't wait.

I am all for the arrive on Thursday and leave on Sunday plan. ~c~

My decision with the help of my wife is the earlier in that time frame we do it the batter it is for me.  She mentioned about possible planning a family reunion (which usually has 100 or so people) and it could end up in June some time.

It may not be planned however because it usually takes about a year to put it together. 

But still I stay safe by saying the earlier in that time frame the better for me.

only 100 how fortunate for you guys...my gramps and his brother both settled close to each other when they came to the US...gramps had 7 kids, his brother 9...the last family reunion I went to they didn't rent a picnic grove in the park, they had to rent the entire park! over 650 relatives showed up...and they didn't all make it either. The way I understand it, every single Sicilian with the same surname as my gramps is a relative...in the entire world...those Italians are like baby factories I guess  ~roflmao

Post by: Jared LeBlue on August 19, 2005, 07:19:11 AM
Two things to remember when setting the dates, Mother's day which is in May and Father's day which is in June. Also a thing to look at with May is when will most schools be out for the summer. I think if you have it in May make it as late as possible, for June just stay away from Father's day.
Title: Re: 2006 Ultimate Bass Ralley Location
Post by: MotherNature on August 19, 2005, 07:23:13 AM
You are right Jared but if we do have it in May we also have the Memorial Weekend to deal with and the lakes are crowded enough without having our group to add to the vacation boating that will be present. I don't think having it on a 3 or 4 day weekend is a good idea.

We went through this with the first UBCS and there is just no way to meet absolutly everyone's needs. We just have to do what we think is the best and run with it. Kind of like you did with the UBCS this year ;)
Title: Re: 2006 Ultimate Bass Ralley Location
Post by: fishforfree on August 19, 2005, 07:31:56 AM
Good points Laurie!!

Mother's Day is usually the second Sunday in May if I remember correctly and Memorial Day is usually the last Monday in May :-\

How about the first weekend in June?
Title: Re: 2006 Ultimate Bass Ralley Location
Post by: Jared LeBlue on August 19, 2005, 08:11:38 AM
I think June is a good month and the earlier the better. First off if you have it early you hopefully will still be below the 90s and you beat the vacation rush which normally fires up in late June. I'm good for whatever date but if you are trying to accommodate as many as you can you are going to have to take all the factors into consideration.

Post by: Creel Limit Zero on August 19, 2005, 08:28:32 AM
I would really like to come down for a whole week, coming from Baltimore is probably a 10-12 hour drive, so a weekend would be too short.  Only thing I request is it not be the first weekend in June.  As an accountant, one thing you can't do is take off of close week.   :'(

Mother's Day is the 14th, Memorial day the 29th.  That would make May 18-21st an option.

June - Father's day is the 18th, so June 1st - 4th would work, and June 8th-11th would work. 

I would opt for either May 18th-21st or June 8th-11th.  This would stay away from the Holiday's, and my dreaded close week.

Will try to make it up whenever it is.  Fished Dale Hollow last year and had a great time.  Samllmouth bass are just fantastic, but the really great thing is all 3 speciaes are present. 

Stayed in a cabin last time up - if interested take a look at the following site for options;

We were down there in March which might have been a little early but well worth it.

I agree, I love catching those slot smallies. I like the slot limit, that`s why there are so many nice smallies in that lake. And when I was there we also caught some really nice largemouth and a ton of spots.

I think the location has already been decided, Dale Hollow Lake.  As for when, these weekend listed above I think are the choices it has been narrowed down to.  Still looking for responses from those going on which weekend would be the best.

DAWG between May 18th-21st or June 8th-11th I would have to pick June 8th-11th because the first two weeks in May I'm usually on my 17day fishing trip to Lake Shelbyville . But if May 18th-21st is chosen I could only take a week to Lake Shelbyville and then take that whole week of the 18th and Fish and eye could come down and stop by DAWgs for a little fishing befor hand  ;) but I hope by then DAWg will be back to work by then   ;D

I have planned all along to attend the Rally but now I am on the fence. 
I am guessing a 14 hour drive from southwest Louisiana.  How much will gas be by then.  I am now in the wait and see mode.

Post by: Mike Cork on September 06, 2005, 08:12:13 PM
I have also been thinking about the costs of gas and how it will effect the rally, unfortunately it is definately going to be an issue. I would like to some ideas on fund raisers that folks could do to help defray the costs.

One would be the ideas in the Fish For Free Manual :-*

Those of us that are in bass clubs could use a club fund raiser to send those that wanted to go. The Lock Jaw Bass Club is working a neat idea to raise funds. They have challenged another local club and the winner of the tournament takes all the money :-* that could go towards gas :-*

Other than a car was what are some ideas that everyone else has :-\

As much as I rarely ever just blatantly promote my products -  I have to agree with you Mike. ~c~

Using the FishForFree manual would be a tool that could help one learn how to raise FUNDS for the Rally!!

Post by: Jared LeBlue on September 07, 2005, 08:16:11 AM
One good thing is the tournament is a good ways off so there will be time to save money for it. Gas is going to be a big issue but if anybody is planning on taking a vacation it's going to be an issue. Hopefully gas prices won't sore much higher.

When I was there we put in at Sunset Marina.  They have everything you need including lake maps.  This area is also known for the largest garage sale in USA.  Extends down one of the major highways for 30-50 miles.  Forget when it is, but people come from everywhere in region for the event.

Swede,that is the Hwy 127 yard sale and it starts in Ohio and goes all the way into Georgia I think ,It totals 400 -500 miles long They just had it about a month ago.

creel...we got 2 different strains of steelies here...one all Winter long, goes out to the lake in late spring with a few stragglers; then another which comes in for the Summer months...and let's not forget those skamania either.

the streams in the eastern part of the state have rainbows in em all year.

...and we have one stream here that has browns and smallies in it all year (little known area)[but I did my homework]

and I know where the State Record Wiper was caught, the S.R. Largemouth, the S.R. Northern Pike, the S.R. Musky, the S.R. Walleye, and the S.R. Tiger Musky

if I get my trolling motor fixed, I know a good crappie lake too! and they rent boats there, or at least they did 2 years ago...it was 5 bucks all day.

Lots of different fishing opportunities in Indiana, that's for sure.  Hopefully I'll get the chance to explore many of them with you guys, who knows, maybe I will come your way on the way to the Rally.   ;D

sound idea there fish but its hard to do in tel we get the place we launch from, as for me I can sleep in the back of my truck if nothing else. But the camping part is good for me now what of the rest of you?

If we get a camp grounds near the marina then everyone can come over at night and burn marshmallows! then there are the fishing stories we should have a great time with that alone. :)

Title: Re: 2006 Ultimate Bass Ralley Location
Post by: Fishaholic on October 03, 2005, 07:40:00 AM
the difference is that copperheads are pit vipers, they're aggressive and don't need a reason, rattlesnakes generally won't bother you if you don't bother them.

Nope, no snake kit.

All right, as I see it, I need to bring a plate to Dawg's resteraunt.   ;D
I need to bring a flask to fill up on the moonshine.   ;)
I've got a tent that can sleep 4 comfortably.   ;D
I'm not bringing my boat from all the way here from MD to Indiana, then to KY, but will be interested in seeing what kinds of boats are available to rent.  Besides, a little Jon boat with an electric motor is a little small for that big lake.   ::)

It will either be Sunset or Star Point marina,they are both closer to the headwaters of the lake and easiest for everyone to get to.and are only five minutes away from each other  ~c~

Lets see if this works for you (http://www.myfishingpictures.com/watermark.php?file=500/7067Star_Point001.jpg) Star Point is the white block to the left and Sunset is on the right.By land they are 5 minutes away from each other,by water maybe 10-15 minutes ,depending on how fast you can run it.
