I'm Back

1 post in this topic

Well it has been 3 months since i broke the transom of my boat in half. Tonight I put the finishing touches of my massive reconstruction project together, slapped on the earmuffs and started it up. Felt good. Gnna go out on Sunday but I suppose it will be raining, guess I will have to get out my unbrella. I hope my boat doesn't leak would be hard to tell in the rain. When I pulled the motor off with my cherry picker and tried to pull the broken transom out in once peice so I could trace out the new wood, the existing wood transom came out in handfulls, I actually used my shop vac to remove most of it. I have never seen anything like it. Well 60 trips to Macs hardware and Lowes, 2 stops at sears to replace broken tools, and 27 stainless steal rivots (my hands still ache) I am ready to fish. Any one had any luck anywere Latley?

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
