For the record, I do like the idea of being able to use the kitchen at Bay Prairie's operation. I really don’t want to get into a my event vs. your event situation but would be happy to help – if at first even through suggestion.

If we’re going to do an actual fishing tournament, it might be a good idea to try and book out Capt.’s Quarters for lodging, or Pole Benders, or even book with a guide on the coast that can accommodate a large group. We don’t have to have an event at all other than gumbo. If the goal is a gumbo cook-off, why don’t we just get together and have a gumbo cook-off? If we’re just cooking … people can come and go as they please and fish as they like or even hunt as they like.

Hell, if Tako has a crew that wants to goose hunt … and we have another 10 – 15 that want to fish – we can still come together at the end of the day to eat.

First things first … we have to know who intends to “submit” a gumbo … who wants to eat, and generally who intends to show up at all …

I'm game for either one but am pretty excited about the hunt. Who cares if it's not the best snows in the country, good people, good food, and pulling the trigger?!? What else could ya ask for

I agree with all positive steps to move forward with this . I am happy to hunt with whoever wants to and share a meal with all of you.

Count me in for fishing, I enjoy it more than hunting honestly. Have never fished the ocean before though.

Well those mentioned are just lodging. I'm sort of figuring that anyone interested has accesss to their own boat or a buddies that's driving, however, if we hypothetically were to book with say Bay Flats ... it's like $175 - $250 per day plus lodging.

I'm actually working on permission for us to use the pavillion on my ole man's place right now ... for free, for the cook-off. It'll seat 25 - 35 and overlooks 280 acres of roost. Pretty much ever crane and puddler in the county uses it. Be a pretty cool view.

Sorry I am playing catch up with the post. been busy at work. I can be texted if anyone needs info right away at five zero four 491 nine four two three. the date has been set at Saturday Feb. 8. At Bay Prarie outfitter. The group is up now to 8-10 although not everyone has put their name. The plan would tentatively be arrive Friday, stay there, hunt Saturday morning. The owner has told me that if he is not holding birds they will not hunt. Please let me know if this is compatible with the fishing/meeting up with others part of it. I am more than happy to make it right. Thanks.

Should be fine ... it's not much notice but that doesn't really matter to the fish ... I just need to get off my ***. I'll try to PM/call all the coastal guys here this afternoon and over the weekend to see if it works ...

The pavillion would be perfect, but I am thinking that it's a ways away from Midfield and POC...
