Had the day planned out. Had eight spots to hit....and try and come out with at least 18 lbs. Some boats were already out so i had to move a little farther down the lake for some areas no one was around. Then at luck has it motor breaks down. eek After messing with it for an hour....gave up and started to motor....yes trolling motor back. Didn't know if i'd make it back but after looking at graph i decided i had to try at least two spots....offshore spots. Took almost two hours to get to each one. Back to the ole days electric only having to travel hours just to get to a spot....but the spots gave up two ok girls. 6.5 and a 5.10... gotta do what you gotta do right. wink shot in 720p
