Boat launch idiots!
Was the trailer ever successfully backed into the water?
Man, that guy makes me look like a pro. Those straight shots can be awful tricky, I suppose. How the heck did he ever get it in the water in the first place?
Anyway, this should be an epic BLI weekend
That FB video was painful to watch...
A repeat from others. At a single ramp launch, put your boat in and motor out or go to the other side of the pier to do all of your prep stuff. The line gets long when its a single ramp and people get mad. One other thing which is a rant. If you need to get drunk as hell and drive the boat, stay off the water. That is why one of the morons took so long putting his boat on the trailer yesterday. Flat out stupid.
Wow River!!!! That’s a beautiful fish!!! Always thought Pike were the best looking fish. A 40” is on my bucket list lol!!! Them pics are what being a good Dad is all about!!!!
Well I guess the fiasco of last nights not being able to launch was a good thing for me. Took my son and daughter out early this morning to fish. My son caught the biggest fish of his life. A Thick, Healthy, Wide 40" Northern. The fight was amazing, it made 6 or 7 drag ripping runs that almost pulled the rod from my sons hands. Took 3 attempts to net him, he also made a run around the trolling motor which I cant believe he didnt get off. Best part is the smiles on their faces even though their old man got them up at 5:30am. My daughter caught bass and did the photos. All fish released to fight again. A happy father I am.
good luck to all
So I went to launch my boat tonight at Big Cedar around 6pm. There was nobody in line to launch. There were 2 boats that had just been taken out and they were parked lined up in front of the wipe down station. The second boat was almost to the fence of the patrol launch, I could barely get turned around by the dumpsters. I decided to drive up thru the upper lot to see if there was an open spot. Both lots were full so I drove down past the launch again by that time had 2 other rigs behind me when 3 or 4 boats were coming to the docks to retrieve their trailers. Where do you think they tied up at???? Both launch lanes. Not a boat at any of the tie up docks out of the way and they decide to stack up 2 boats deep in both lanes. Unbelievable! I wasnt going to shake up that hornets nest. Drove to another lake. Maybe if I wasnt by myself I would have launched but that was Ridiculous. On my way out two more boats were coming in to launch. I must have picked the wrong time to want to fish Big Cedar.
I’ll blame her dad, brothers, boyfriend, and/or salesman. And, yes, I know that’s a sexist statement
So, not a boat launch idiot, but....
I was filling up with gas in Door County recently. I looked over and saw a little SUV pull up to a pump. A woman in her 20's got out. I noticed she was wearing a Northwestern college sweatshirt and there were Northwestern bumper stickers on her car.
She tried to pump gas for about 3 minutes and couldn't figure out why the pump wouldn't work.
After watching this, I asked her if her car was diesel. She looked at me confused....then I told her that she was at the diesel pump and that pump wouldn't fit a car unless it ran on diesel.
Yah...Northwestern. Money well spent.
