Boat launch idiots!
I can’t wait to have something to contribute. Unfortunately for this thread, a great deal of my open water fishing is done when it’s still miserably cold out. That usually weeds out most of the yahoos and leaves the guys who are pretty serious and knowledgeable about what they’re doing.
We are in May now, so soon it will be time to grab a six pack and a lawn chair and observe the Fremont town launch. Might be even better than catching whitebass.
Cheers to safe and efficient boat launching!
Been a while since I could classify myself as a BLI, but last week I went out on Winnebago solo. Came in, tied up, backed trailer in, got boat centered, hooked up and started cranking. It would come in straight then make a hard turn toward the dock no matter how many times I tried. Seriously spent a good 5 minutes of WTF-ing when I noticed...my tie off rope was wrapped around one of the pier posts.
It was my first time out with my boat this year, so I was obviously rather rusty.
Happened again last night. Was fishing off the south end of bago. Checked the radar and saw the storm coming. Had a good half hour to get off and get home but still needed to get moving. All went ok but at the Supples landing, boats were starting to pile up and a big yellow cigarette boat pulls in. It was a BIG rig. He kind of blocked a few lanes while he was waiting for the trailer but that wasn't the real problem. He left the damn engines on and we all had to listen to the gargling roar as he sat there and idled. Not being able to communicate with the driver of our trucks as they backed in the trailers was irritating to say the least. Is it hard to start those things back up once you shut them down?. I just don't get it why the knobs wouldn't shut it down until they need the power at the landing. It wasn't windy. Next time that happens, I am going to say something. I think it was needless and rude. Mrt.
