    I am really jealous. The closest thing we got to a boat is a canoe. I love fishing. Anyway I dont think this is off subject but i hope to do some saltwater fishing come summer

    That ain't off subject last year we took a charter trip to go saltwater fishing didn't catch nothin, they gave us a dicount since we did not catch nothing were do you want to go sw fishing at?
    I use to be somewhat jealous when we didn't have a boat, this boat was a fixer upper though. Hope you get aboat someday.

    I hope we are able to do some fishing on Sat at a friend's pond.

    We went a couple weeks ago and caught 6 fish including 2 bass, 3 crappie and 1 catfish that was at least 4-5 lbs. Not bad for using earthworms and rods that were falling apart on us!

    Watch out! its amazing how many new "BEST" friends your going to have when they find out you got your boat running. We got a new boat last summer, and "friends" have been crawling out of the wood work ever since.
    Its all fine and dandy as long as they help pay for gas, beer, or bait. But when they want us to rearrange our schedule to accomidate theirs its getting out of hand.
    I've already got folks asking me when were going this summer and my trailer is still frozen to the ground.
