Any upper mid-westerners off Friday, June 28th? I’ll be making about a 100 mile loop up to jobbie nooner and back. The itinerary is leave Trenton (south end of the Detroit River) about 9:30ish Run the 40 miles north up the river & across LSC to gull island. I don’t get myself to deep into the party. (Unless ????). But usually hang for a few hrs. Then off to find lunch at Browns on the middle channel about 2pm (before the mad drunken 4:00 rush). Hang out on St. Clair (many other anchorages, all sand) to about 4 or 5pm and get back downriver about 6 pm. The worst water you’ll likely see 3 ft rollers at the narrowest point of the river under the Ambassador Bridge. Look both up jobbie nooner and Browns, good times!

I ran my starflite under the bridge couple dozen times without any troubles. It just takes more time. Running your starflite would add about 20 -25 minutes to a 50 minute trip. (no problem). I ran in 6-8 ftrs in between PIB and Sandusky Bay one Saturday afternoon turning a 30 minute ride into a 2.5 hr death march.
The picture is from about 10 yrs ago at jobbienooner. I decided to hang for a while.

Just Thinking, with this near record water level gull island is practically under water. So it’s more of a sand bar party then beach party the past few yrs.
