First rule in boating...

KEEP YOUR CROTCH AWAY FROM A SPINNING PROPELLAR!!!

I thought everyone knew that.

I was scratching my head all morning trying to figure out how you get caught in the prop! I have done some stupid stuff in my lifetime, but never have I been in a situation where I could get my swim trunks caught in the moving propeller!

I have seen people make some big mistakes with boats and that would be a big one. That loud pop you heard was someone pulling their head out of...

Random guy

Seen this trick at the public landing on Red last year. Some dudes boat wouldn't go on the trailer so he put the wife at the helm and got behinind the boat in waist deep water and started pushing on the back of the outboard as she gave it the onions. Thankfully a warden was at the dock and put an end to that madness before it got ugly.

Prop crotch... is that like jock itch?

I decided to use this as a learning moment. I told My 4 yr old that this is why he should never put his "swim suit area" near anything that resembles a blender... his response; "duh".

If it were me, it would have been, "I HAD a high school..."

I could not possibly be friends with someone dumb enough to get caught in the prop. But then, I have semi high standards when it comes to common sense, smarts, etc..

I thought I heard him say the driver had it in neutral when in fact in was in reverse. Never the less I would think a guy could tell if the boat was moving towards you. confused.gif

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!

      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew.

      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.

      I would fish them trees
    • HunterFisher11
      So I should set my house in really shallow in on those trees?? Or stay out a little bit on the drop? Going to do a over night if that makes a difference?
    • monstermoose78
      Find them trees if they are in the water. I fished a lake like that and it was fishing the crappies in the trees. I had to use heavier line to horse them out quick.

      Pulled my house a couple of days ago, but there are still a few fish biting at some spots. Very slow for me! Good roads out there yet as we plowed them after the last snow. Cliff

      So have had this small lake on my radar seance last spring, was out there and got some really nice crappies a buddy and his dad got some nice northerns, so like I said small lake max death of 5-6 ft and that is pretty much in one spot but does kind of get close to shore where there is trees in the lake. So my thought is to sit on the edge and fish for crappies and toss out a tip up closer to shore??
