My buddy and I both had chores to do in the morning ( but really wanted to go find a deer ) so we launched my boat at 12:30, ran across the sound, anchored & rowed ashore, spent a couple hours in the bushes and then walked back to the boat along the beach. Found two of these big floats, saw a small buck and a doe, didn't get a shot off of either, came back in the dark... it dark at 4:00.

When I had to pull the boat for the season on Oct. 31, it was a beautiful day so I went tog fishing. Instead of pulling back into my slip after kicking some tog ass, I went to the ramp to pull the boat and noticed I was missing a roller (lost it on my way to the ramp that morning). With 2 guys behind me looking to pull their boats I pulled mine crossing fingers on not damaging the hull. Anyway, I just got some replacement parts for the trailer, so I dropped the boat in the water today, fixed the trailer, and pulled it out again. Hull doesn't look too bad, but the bottom paint is scored and maybe the gelcoat too, I'll have to work on that in the spring.

Mounted CMC... and a host of other stuff on the little 14'

There is something wrong with me at the mental level over this boat.

First the Ulterra froze up on me. Deployed straight out from the bow and never tilted into the water. Had a five foot spear off the front of the boat. Lots of ice buildup inside the workings I should have cleaned out prior to deploying. Then I had the boat and the trailer towed after another trailer fail on the interstate. U-bolts connecting one of the springs to the axle blew out and left us stranded. Got 9 musky though on what may be my last day out. Gonna wait for 50 on the thermometer until I head out again. Done with cold weather fishing this year. April maybe?

Picked up my boat from the shop today. Was there for months due to the motor on back order and then took longer than expected to ship. New Suzuki re-power, among other things.
