    A good place to book a room online is at http://www.worldweb.com Just do a search for Port Clinton, Ohio. You will get pretty good prices there (the quotes I gave you are from there). You might try http://www.priceline.com for Port Clinton Ohio. Sometimes Priceline gives GREAT rates (like 20 bucks/night...you name your price, and if the accept, you are booked). Only problem with that is if you book, you are stuck with it. No cancelling. At least with WorldWeb you can cancel.

    If you're interested in camping, rates are as follows: Non Electric- $16/night, Electric- $21-25/night. Feel free to conserve plots and share tents. For more information, call camp office at (419) 734-5857. There shouldn't be any problem getting a camp plot this early in the season.

    Driving Directions:

    From Cleveland, Ohio: Take State Route 2 West to State Route 269 North. Park is located on State Route 269.
    From Columbus, Ohio: Take State Route 23 to State Route 4. Go North on State Route 4 to State Route 2. Go West on State Route 2 to to State Route 269 North. Park is located on State Route 269.

    IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEMS OR QUESTIONS ON HOW TO GET THERE, GIVE ME A RING ON MY CELL AT 419-512-6644. We will guide you in the rest of the way!

    Night fishing is authorized, and brolly type shelters are permitted as long as they are completely open on 1 side. Depending on camping areas, you may have a 100 yard walk to the fishing area. Be prepared to haul your gear if this is necessary. Fish up to 25-30lbs are common this time of year in this area. This is a inlet bay of Lake Erie.

    If you have any questions or are interested in attending please... email me at tpet96@columbus.rr.com or contact me via cellphone at (419) 512-6644. If you can only attend for one day; that's fine.

    SEE YOU ON THE BANK....

    Had a lengthy discussion with the rangers yesterday. They advised us that Brolly's ARE permitted while fishing, but the following MUST apply or we will be asked to take them down, and won't be permitted to use them there again:

    1.) NO camping gear allowed in the brolly's (NO Heaters, Sleeping bags, pillows, etc. Lanterns and flashlights are permitted, and highly recommended)
    2.) 1 side has to be completely open. No Bivvy's that are closed up.
    3.) Absolutely NO sleeping while on that bank. According to them.......if you are sleeping then you are not fishing, but camping on the bank rather. And that is not permitted. You will be asked to leave, by the rangers, if you sleep on that bank.

    Not my rules guys.....I just have to pass the info on to you...and try to abide by them. Thanks!

    From Columbus, Ohio: Take 23N to I270-E Take State Route 23N off of 270 to State Route 4 N. Go North on State Route 4 to State Route 269. Turn left onto 269. Follow 269 through Bellevue, then through Castalia. 269 will cross SR 2. Go West (Left) on SR 2. Follow across the sandusky bay bridge. 1st exit (SR 269N) across the bridge.....take it. Follow 269N to the deadend into SR 163. Turn Right. At first traffic light, turn left. Park entrance will be about 1/2 mile up the road on the right hand side. Follow all the way back into the park until you see a shelter house on the right hand side. If you come to water, you have gone too far. Park at that shelter house, and walk through the campground. You will see where we are fishing.

    Hey King. FYI......I have been skunked on chick peas 3 times this year up there. Haven't landed a fish yet on them this year up there. Think outside the box this year. hehe....its NICE living up north :D

    Hey 'looker......I'll give you a call here shortly. I want to drop some stuff off for you to take up. Not going to have the room. And, I want to know how to roast your "secret ingredient". I have 11 lbs of that crap here, and need to know how to roast it :)

    Welcome River Rat, I think I figured out who you are and yes you and Shawn sharing the same tent could be a bad thing. Which one of you guys will be bringing the U-Haul :D We may need to get an archway built over your guy's camp with the name TackleTart Alley written on it.

    I should be talking though, I showed up last year with a 5 gallon bucket full of bait and gear and two fishing poles, this year I will be filling up that SUV with all kinds of stuff I couldn't even of dreamed of last year.

    By the way Shawn, I should have plenty of room for the propane tanks so don't worry about that on your end, also will you need me to bring some peanut oil for the wings ?
