the universal signal for being broke down is to stand on your bow holding up a rope.

I saw the one of the craziest things on Lavon yesterday. I was crappie fishing with my son and a buddy in his boat. We changed locations and I dropped a couple of markers for my buddy and his son to fish. I realized that I had left one of my markers at our last spot, so I high tailed it over to retrieve. On the way there was a couple sitting in the middle of the lake bimini up - motor off and just drifting. They wave and I see the lady with both arms waving so I decide to turn around to help. As I pull up, the gentleman asks what the problem is, and I tell him that I am here to see if they needed help and he tells me that they were just waving to be friendly. I just say have a nice day and bye.

Some good folks out there. And then there are jerks like this one last Tuesday in a no wake zone.

He went under the bridge going the other way a little bit earlier, also on plane. Either clueless or didn't care.
Fishin' to stock Lake Crisco.

I thought you're supposed to call 911 and Garland or Rowlette police will send a boat to rescue. That's not true?
