First Annual River Militia Bake - SW Ohio

Post by fallen513 » Sat Jan 07, 2017 6:10 pm

[report]August 9th - 13th (Wednesday through Sunday)
There has been enough interest expressed in this that I figured I would get it going this year. There are around 8 of us here locally and there will be people in from NY, PA, KY, TN, Canada, WI and hopefully some folks from the Carolinas, IN, IL, VA, FL, CA, LA and maybe even Austria.

Dates for now are looking like the last couple weeks in July whatever works for the most people. (Forgot the Luau. Early August is fine). I live here, so I don't give a shit when you get here or how long you stay. There are numerous campgrounds within 30 minutes of the Militia Headquarters and various tailwaters, headwaters, reservoirs, tributaries and big rivers full of skis, smallies, carp, trout and most importantly...a run of the most voracious, hard pulling freshwater fish you can encounter, hybrid striped bass. True striped bass occasionally make an appearance, and the Militia's southern contingent will have them dialed in a mere 1.5 hours south. All of these fish will be readily available in large numbers.

Plenty of opportunity to wade or float. Tiny blue lines up to the mighty Ohio. Drift boats, pontoons, canoes, jet boats...you can bow fish from a helicopter if you want to.

The idea is to have a base camp where all the usual fuckery goes on, with groups of people heading off in different directions each day. All I need to know is what kind of fish you're after and we'll do our best to put you on them.

There will be booze.
There will not be women, unless they're naked on stage.
There will be meat.
There will be no assholes, rest assured of that.
There will be memories.
There will be a minor fee, contingent upon how much additional interest there is, which will cover your shitty lodging and awful food.

Let's get it.

A few years ago I was driving through SW OH. I was on the phone, talking to my youngest daughter, and noticed when my gas warning light came on. Fortunately there was a gas station at the next exit. I said, OH shit, hon, I'm about outa gas. I got hang up- can't be on the phone pumping gas.

She said, Yeah, no shit. I'll talk to you soon.

Pulled off while we said goodbye and pulled into the station, then I said, Oh wait. I guess I can keep talking.

She said, Dad, it's not a good idea.

I said, Punkin, it's the only way to level the playing field. I'll be the only person, at…….10, 11, 12 pumps, not smoking.

Might want to rethink your guarantee on the asshole population. :coffee

A race-based controversy arose over the decision to make the majority of the characters white Americans, even though the main players in the book Bringing Down the House, upon which the film 21 is based, were mainly Asian-Americans. The role was given to London-born Jim Sturgess, who required a dialect coach to speak with an American accent.


I know what goes on.



and this bake has accidental drowning/incarceration written all over it.

confession: this made more sense when I was reading it as river melissas.
