Ok so we just moved here from out of state and I was very excited to be 5 minutes from a Ray Roberts. Well we are in an apartment for a few more months while our house is being built. This fact is important due to all our stuff being in storage. I was able to fish for roughly 20-25 hours back in March before my outboard went down. Paid a pretty penny to get it back up and running and went out for the first time since on Friday. Was able to rustle up a few fish despite the windy conditions. So today I take my boat over to the house and the temporary power pole (not the shallow water anchor type) to put my batteries on charge for a few hours and try to make a Sunday afternoon trip (conditions are great). Battery charger is dead!! All my tools, meter, or anything could help me get out on the water is out of reach. It seems ALL odds are against me to do what I love to do...I wish I could laugh it off and say something funny right now but I'm just plain disgusted and any words of encouragement would be greatly appreciated...

Ok vent noted, I had to live in an apt for a while,, sux. Also lost a wife when she was 53. You want a little perspective? Right now some poor guy in a prison in some third world country is probably getting his eyes gouged out with a piece of broken glass.. Have you ever seen what life is like in a slum in Mumbai India.. I know, life is hard.

Head on up to Lone Oak Road bridge and catch some kitty cats. Garlic soaked chicken breast or shad from a throw net off the ramp. Buck Creek boat ramp too for some bank fishing. Sandies run thru there every evening.
Fellow don't want to fish very bad if he got to make up a bunch of lame excuses. smile
Take an umbrella smile

Well trolling motor battery died, replaced, next trip cranking batter died, next trip tie down in back broke, next trip wench stap got replaced. Also lost a net due to rats eating on it.

No one said the dream was easy. Keep the hammer down.

Never sweat the small stuff.

You can tell if it is big stuff because there will be sirens and an ambulance.

Fact.

"there but by the Grace of God) situation.
