Boat launch idiots!
Was shocked today launching at Dahlman's on Koshkonong. Launched at 3:30is, off at 5:30ish...had to park outside of the park, all parking spots filled, all grass areas filled.
10minutes to launch, 10 minutes to recover.
Took longer to walk to my car to recover cause it was parked so far away.
No idiots to report. TONS of boats out, and choppy as heck...
Today, as it panned out, was a stupid plan for me to go phishing. I will not "double post" from the Gripe Site thread...
As I was heading in. The launch/recovery area is a channel approximately 125 yards long and 10 yards wide. There was some folks preparing to launch (?) 2 idiot boats. PWC???. I was at the end of the channel for 15 minutes as they tried to start the engines. Then ran them up. Shut 'em down. Started them up. Then backed 'em off the trailer!!! As they came off the trailer, I headed in. NOOO!!! They came out side by side. I headed in and it became aware once they realized they should not be abreast...they had no idea on which side to pass me. Not only that. Aren't those drivers suppose to wear life jackets???
Bad day on the water. But, then again, better then a sharp stick in the eye.
Any launch today and tonight on the Madison chain. Shake the Lake.
It’s this weekend and The 4th that I’m thankful that we have our own launch on our property. Besides the idiots, I can F’up all I want and nobody will know!!!
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!
That could have ended badly. A friend of mine did that years ago and the anchor ended up snapping back into the boat. Almost killed his wife. Mrt.
Not a bli but I did see a guy try to get up on plane a few weeks ago on delevan with his back anchor still down that was quite amusing... at least me and the other 30 boats out there thought so
To the top
"a good half hour to get off"
Cold, I take it you don't have kids?
