Looks like I have a little but of a wait too...i forgot my nav lights so I'll have to wait for safe light before I head out. I did launch the boat without incident though. :LOL2:

The next time won't be the first time I've made the same mistake twice.

I'm in.....but not likely to win. I'll fish an electric only lake tomorrow and Monday. Never has been a producing lake...but I can't get anywhere else without a motor and I won't just lie down on this one. :LOL2:

Bring it on!
Peace,

Looks like we are all in for a rough weekend of weather/fishing. Just checked and rain all day Sunday and Monday the weather looks good except for the 23 mph average wind all day!!

This will make this contest more interesting!!

I'll start the contest off with this guy...

Image

I did not catch him on a BYOB bait nor did I pick up trash... There was no trash at the launch and the BYOB fish caught were smaller. :? I did have a 2 foot something interested in the BYOB bait, but he just wouldn't open his mouth, went at it from every direction before he finally drifted off to the weeds :( My partner landed one about 4 inches longer than mine, to bad he's not a tinboats guy yet.

BTW - It was 60mph winds,hail, and lightning storms, knocked out power around. We went out, lauched in the last few raindrops. The sun even came out for a while, now it's back to more rain. :(

Sounds better than what I was doing. I had to pour some concrete to make a step extension for my shed. Sure only 2 80# bags of concrete mix, but I was drenched with sweat afterwards. Now it's off to the shower and then time to lay down for a bit before work.

I didn't do all that great today either. This was the first time I can remember where my car was the only one in the parking lot at the ramp. Maybe everyone else knew something I didn't. Lots of small fish, my biggest was only 12". I guess Will has the lead so far! I'll try to get out again this weekend.

I wish I would've seen this sooner! Spent the whole day fishing a club tournament and just now saw this! I did hook a real nice largemouth today around 18" but he threw the hook at the surface causing me to place second. I do love this tournament idea though!

Came around a corner to find the oncoming car coming into my lane - served and trailer wheel caught the edge of the road - all i hear is a "scrapeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee" and look to see the boat on its side

Some nice people stopped and helped me flip the boat back up.

Casualties were light - my Powell Endurance was a loss. My St. Croix Premier lost a guide and the Star Nicklelight was unscathed

Bent a guide on pretty good - I think that saved everything else

Plowed up a bunch of dirt that I vacuumed out


Took it back out last night and it worked fine
