You have to get out of the kayak to clean the grates I assume?

Yes, I need to get out each time. The river grass gets past the grate, so a brush wonít do it.

Iím headed to Beauís area October 20-23 for some Potomac cruising. Hoping to meet up with him, but I wonít ď hold my breath ď.
I was originally going to Washington DC, but Iím staying away from that place for now. Camping in my RunAway micro camper with the boat on top.
Gotta use my last couple vacation days, or I lose them!

Are you heading to upper Potomac or the lower ?  You can camp in Brunswick, Md at the Brunswick Family Campground. They have a nice ramp. I've launched from there a few times.

Good suggestion Larry - https://www.potomacrivercampground.com/


Looks like a nice place to camp right along the Potomac - shouldn't be too crowded either.

Chris..There's a lot of ramps on the upper Potomac from Dam 4 to Great Falls. I've launched at Landers, Snyders Brunswick, Point of Rocks and Taylors Landing. Good Small Mouth fishing. Are these years going up there I've never seen another Mokai.

Thanks Larry, I didnít see it in my search. Itís perfect! I even used Chrisís link to find it. Iím going to email them today.
Unfortunately, Beau wonít be available, but that is to be expected. Iíll mostly be magnet fishing, and detecting ( Iím not a fisherman, yet ), but if anyone wants to stop by, Iím fine with it.
Iím going detecting Saturday at one of the new spots in the river I found. 80 degree days are fading fast!

Upon further research, I decided to reserve a spot at the Hagerstown KOA. The other site is too far south for this trip, Hagerstown is only about 2 1/2 hours away.
Maybe Iíll find something Aquachigger missed.........Yeah, right.

Looks like I lucked out with the weather for my trip! Mid 70ís & no rain next week, so I decided to try to go sooner. Asked my boss for the whole week off, and he said no problem.
Hopefully Iíll have some great pics for you!

Went about 10 miles up the Potomac River today, from the Big Slackwater Park Ramp. Perfect day, no wind at all, and only a couple other boats out.
I can really understand why Aquachigger started river hunting now. Tons of history, and great water.
I was able to go up a little creek for about a mile, but there were three BULLS standing in the middle of the creek! I decided to turn around at that point ( they were not going to move ).

Iíll try to load a pic or two, but the campground WiFi is weak.

Talk about a bunch of BULL!! LOL Well THAT'S not something you see every day.... hahaha I think turning around was a very wise idea. I'll play with gators, but bulls are not on my list of animals to toy with. haha Glad you had a great day. Look forward to more pics.  \./8

Looks like a nice campsite. Good to not see to many leaves blanketing the water top too. Awesome place to hang my hammock and checkout a sunrise or sunset. Have fun!!

Looks peaceful. You may have talked about this elsewhere, but how do you get the mokai up on your camper top?

I have a Rhino Rack support in the rear hitch. It tilts down so I can lift the bow up on it, then I just push it on from the stern. Mind you, the gas tank & engine are kept in the car, so itís not that heavy.
