Bash 2020

The time will be here before we know it so lets start discussing it. It's been the first weekend in June for the last several years. This year would be June 5-7

The last couple of years there has been talk about changing the location to Stienhatchee to change it up. Loyd and Pam are checking out places in Stienhatchee that could accommodate. Hopefully they will post that soon with all of the info.The Morrings in Cbelle has been the spot there. I'm for the location that the most people would attend. Attendance has been getting lower over the last few years. It's really a great time. 

Not sure what the Snapper season is going to be, Haven't looked if it is posted yet but places will start filling fast and soon if not already. 

If you are interested in going please post where you would rather have it so you would most likely attend. Only way I know to choose is go with the location with the most votes to get as many people there. We are 4 months out. 

As always, donations and any help is welcomed and appreciated by everyone. 

Please make this a sticky ferris. Thanks.

    I’m good with anything.  Grouper season will be in for both areas.

    I agree Tommy, more people the better location doesn't matter. Kinda like the sausage grinding seems to be smaller each year.

    I'll do all I can to help as always.

    Prefer the Hatch simply because it's home BUT I will be at the Bash regardless where it happens.

    We are game for Steinhatchee this year.  We really want to build this bash back up to its original numbers.  We need everyone's help to make this happen.   We have a great time every year because of the great people who love to fish like us.   

    We have been doing homework to see if we can find a place in Steinhatchee. 

    We have found a place that sleeps 24 with three houses with the sea **** walking distance.   There is another house available if we need more beds.  This place is private with a lake.  It has a place to have the cooking every night.   That would mean that some would have to share the house with other people.  The cost would be 50 dollars a person per day.  Your slip would be extra.  

    We also have checked with Steinhatchee River Motel and they have rooms but no meeting place.  I just contacted them to see if they have these rooms still available and they are.  They were talking about 109 to 129 a night.  They told me before we got a discount.  I just asked her if we can get that discount if we check out all 10 rooms.  Brothernlaw said we could meet at his place.  Your slip would be extra.  The marina is on the river beside the motel.  

    I will get the price of the slips next weekend. 

    I'm ready to go fishing.

    We need commitments (numbers) before we can settle on a place. I'm guessing we need 24 to get the $50 per person per night, right for the houses?

    Please post up where you would like it to be if you are attending. I'm guessing wherever it is rooms need to be reserved by end of the month or mid March and that may be too late.

    I'd pass to for that trip. Can I fit in a suitcase??

     Bennet and my sister are going to Carrabelle regardless.

    Donna wants to go to Cbelle as well. She likes fishing there and says that's the only time she gets to go.

    As I said, I'm good either way.

    If I am looking at the map correctly, Steinhatchee is close enough for me to make the drive for a day visit.  I travel for my job.  I can't plan a weekend get-away that far in the future, since I don't know what contracts might come up.  I wouldn't be taking up a room.

    Carrabelle is too far for a day trip.

    If y’all settle on the hatch, I’m good for a big batch of fried gator and hush puppies for all.
    And then some, I like cookin😉

    Yes we definitely need to fill the beds to be able to pay the rent.  Pam from Steinhatchee River Resort has the rooms also.  Everyone needs to vote.

    Like Pam mentioned. If we can't get enough for the big place. Everyone can find a place on their own to stay and we can congregate/cook etc at my place. I have enough room to keep us dry if rain moves in or whatever.

    Steinhatchee River In has rooms available.   I will be checking them out this weekend.  I have never seen them.

    Lets do this! 
    I like Gator 🐊 and hush puppies!

    I'll say that I don't care where but if the Hatch is more than a room at the Moorings I'm out most likely. I also don't want to have to drive back to where I'm staying from the gathering. Too much drinking going on. The Moorings is convenient for keeping boats close, rooms and walking distance from the party and the bar.

    Let the votes keep coming.

    You ain’t wrong 
  • micci_manmicci_man Somewhere in FLPosts: 13,704 AG
    From off line calls and conversations it looks like Carrabelle is the place that most will attend. So Carrabelle it is.I hope as many that can will attend. Even if just one night. Saturday night is the big raffle night.  


    I'll contact the Morrings and reserve a block of rooms. Mention the Florida Sportsman Bash to reserve your room.
