Well,my horrible spring just keeps getting better. Holbrook,unload the boat and decide I'll just use the trolling motor to get to dock, I pull string and it breaks, I fall and land on passenger windshield, which broke into approximately 4-18 pieces some of which go in the lake. Big motor not even started yet, 5 minutes in everything's looking real good. Go fishing, well that whole trolling motor string breaking issue came up real quick. Was able to use pliers and make it work but, but severe pain in the rear. Mess around for couple hours then decide to load up and head to Fork. Fork, I unload, which thanks to the gentleman that backed me in and brought me the keys as well,now the big motor wont stay running?? Mess with it for a while and fuel bubble is not holding pressure so figure I'll just stay close to ramp and fish. Do that for next couple hours, it is getting late so i head back in and the switch on trolling motor sticks, only runs in high gear now and wont turn off unless I kill power switch. In between all this?? NOT A BITE! I may have some stuff for sale soon because between problems and apparently forgetting how to fish this year has been one for the ages let me tell you!! eek2

Never give up. I believe we have heard that before. Ha... You have the passion to get past the problems of the day. Take those problems one at a time for the fix. All things shall pass.

Sorry Fella!!! B.O.A.T. = Break Out Another Thousand. It's oh so true. Makes you want to quit fishing for about 24 hours, then you are ready to hit it again. :-)

My wife and I were talking about our dreams the other day...Mine was a home, cars and boat with Nothing To Fix and no projects with plenty of time to fish and hunt and spend time with my family. I feel your pain brother, something to fix after just about every trip on my old boat. BTW if you want a cheap way to fix that trolling motor cord, Home Depot sells the coated cable by the foot and crimps to go with it. You can make one of those fancy cable pulls people spend $40 on for about $7.

I’ve been catching fish in a place where I can just fish from the bank so I haven’t even put the boat in the water lately and probably won’t until that spot dies.
