What We Learned While Goin' Fishin' on Saturday

  • If in doubt about the cranking battery, get it tested at the nearest parts store before heading out on the water.

  • A change of dry clothes back at the truck (and a towel) is always a good idea (learned the hard way).

  • Seaweed in abundance is the sworn enemy of any impeller-powered rig.

  • 65 degree water is still too cold for comfortable swimming, let along going under the boat to clear a clogged intake.

  • The third time the boat refuses to start in a reasonable time, when it does get started it is time to head for the ramp.

  • Any day you catch fish and get back to the ramp under your own power is A Good Day, no matter what else happens.
