Damned Mondays!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Well my first Fathers day has gone by and it was a good day. We had beautiful weather, my daughter who is 2 months and 2 weeks old slept most the day on my chest in a hammock swing/chair; we welcomed home a relative from Iraq and celebrated it all at the lake. Then Monday comes, my wife and daughter head south for a party for 2 days leaving me home alone ,So I figured id go fishing, Check the weather, Storms this afternoon, Great, I can grab some Raingear and quick hit the lake for a few hours. Head to Gander Grab some Frogg Toggs run back home grab the boat attempt to leave but the garage door won’t stay down...WTH. Go investigate, find problem remove wheel barrow handles from in front of sensors, shut door and head to access, launch no problem, start fishing, get big tangle between two rods, cut and retie. Head from Little Green to Big Green via Trolling motor, Hit the open lake with alot of wind....motor out away from shallows and start gas motor, let it ideal, Bring up to speed go about 2-3 blocks. CLUNK...slow to a drift Ute-oh...Hmmm...Pull on cord, Stuck no movement, move shifter around, try again, nothing. Call buddy tell him not to head up from the cities, use trolling motor to guide my way back to landing. Fish along the way and catch some small pannies, limp back to shore Kids skipping rocks at access, get kid’s outta the way get blazer and trailer down in the water get boat up no problem, Hmm...Too easy. Put 4 ways on and start taking weeds off. Hmm, Left light isn’t blinking, and I just installed a new light kit...Use electrical tester, no juice at light, got juice coming out of plug on blazer. Go home get boat in garage in time for it to start lighting and storming. Start up Rapala Fishing Game on Playstation two, Hey I can make it a great day, but the Saved game isn’t there, start from scratch, play 1/2 hour give up and take nap. Get up because of windstorm look outside Recycling Cans blowing all over, chase after then in the down poor and put them away. Get back in drenched take shower put on sweats and enjoy fishingmn, At least that didn’t start from scratch. And now, .Hopefully a good nights rest where the fishing fairies will fill my head with wondrous tails and dreams of the big ones that got away.

Anyone know of a good, cheap boat repair shop around chisago???? confused.gif

OUCH that does not sound like a cheap repair no matter where you take it, and I thought that my Monday was bad! Good luck with the repair. Take care and N Joy the Hunt.//Jimbo

Shawn-Sorry to hear about your motor woes... You could check with Frankies, or Hallbergs... There is another guy in the area.. last name is Spires who also fixes motors.. not sure how cheep any of them will be... There are also a few places over in WI just across the river too.

      Heading up to crane Lake area. How are conditions and any tips / pointers?

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.
