I plan to be there Friday sometime. I'm not sure yet where base camp will be. Lou or Screemnreel will probably pick a spot. Should be somewhere between the barricades and a couple of miles west of the nudist. That is far enough away from the nudist, that you probably won't even know they are down there.
What I'm looking at that concerns me more right now is high tides caused by the storms in the Gulf. That beach ain't that high above sea level and there are no dunes to get into if you get caught by some really high tides.

BTW: I still think your wife and kids would enjoy the hell out of this run.

gundoc...I was thinking the same thing. Just looked at the wave height chart out to 48 hrs doesn't look too good. That place is awful low! NOAA is saying she'll be inland in 48 hrs. If that happens then the tides may be down enough by Friday evening. Just looked at the tides and there's a low at 8:30pmish. If it's managable...with the mother nature stir....it might just be a howling kind of fishing weekend for toothy critters! 4 tide day Sat....could be perfect.

If the tides don't run us off the beach(right now I don't think they will) this could be THE WEEKEND OF A LIFETIME at HI for reds and sharks. Everyone is talking about the big lemon that was caught last week. That ain't the shark I am thinking about, its gone.
The one I want is the 10 ft+ shark that a buddy of mine saw last week. It was trying to get over the first bar after a bull red he had staked out on a rope in the fist gut. From his description, it was longer than my yak(11ft scrambler) and almost jet black. That tells me there is a BIG (probably female)bull shark up there and if she will dance with me on the beach, I'll dmnnsure pay the fiddler.

Before anyone starts hollering about the red staked out in the first gut. It was legally tagged.
He didn't have a big enough ice chest to put it in, so he decided to keep it alive until he left.
