I use a ski rope for the trolling motor pull string. It has worked for 3 seasons. I need to change it now that I talked about it. It was free, or at least I already had it . I had a similar experience the day it broke. Paid my tournament fee and went to ramp, boat won't start. Pull off ramp and yank on cord, snap. What a pain. I did not cash a check.

In my experience when you get to the lake and everything bad happens, it's just time to load up and head home. I never catch fish when bad things happen!

Any day fishing is still better than a day behind the desk !
And, I hear that any day you fish doesn't count against your total number of days here !!!

Back up and running as of 6/9 just in time for that good summer bite LOL. New fuel lines, rebuilt fuel pump and spark plugs did the trick on the Mercury. Picked up a used trolling motor off of Facebook marketplace for $200, guy got desperate I guess.

I feel for you. My boat has been dry docked since February 8th. Hit a stump on Welsh and broke the motor mounts (hydraulic steering also started leaking but I don't think was from the "accident") and put a few holes in the hull. Fixed the motor mounts but decided I wanted a "gorilla" hull put on by Toledo Fiberglass. Waiting list was a mile long. Just got the boat in a week ago. Won't get it back for a few more weeks.


Was my decision to wait for the "gorilla" hull. Lifetime (life of the boat) guarantee it will not leak.

We've all had those days or at least I have. More than a few. Fishing still beats work by a long shot.

Well at least you did not break any bones when you fell into the windshield..I'm on day #18 of broken ribs and bruised lung from a fall out there on the same lake...it's hard to set the hook! You will go out and smash on em soon.


Life can be best understood looking back, but it can only be lived looking forward !

I had a few days like that, and other days where it seems I can't catch a fish to save my life and I start pondering selling everything. Just this year was moving between two spots and got on plane and the motor decelerated to stay under 1000 RPMs. Had to idle a long way back to ramp. Took boat in, 1500 dollars and a month later and finally got back on the water. Constant fight with marine place to get status on repairs.

All in all, gotta go thru tough times to get to the good times. Ups and down, part of life. Hang in there.
