I never really heard the story of that dredded night! I've picked up on it a couple of times, but have been wondering if there were any

Runs

Drips

or Errors?

Did you guys ever get the trolling motor back? How'd you get back to the hill?

Happy Fishing!

ok heres the deal...MR and I went to try floundering in a location a little ways from the boat ramp...it was a little windy but we figured when we got to the spot we would be pretty well protected so we went for it...running in a pretty good chop...get about half way there and the coupling holding one of my lights on the front of the boat vibrates loose and the light starts dangling from the wires...so we stop and i get it back to where it wont fall off and we decide to keep going. well we get about 5 min away and all of a sudden i see my trolling motor start falling back and then out of view for me, MR was driving. i asked him if it was in the boat or out of the boat??? no answer...he just slows down and starts looking in the water...well when i saw that i knew the answer. he looks at me and says "what do you want to do" i said turn around and lets go home! i was done. my boat is WAY to heavy to poll around all night (remember in a previous post i said i was lazy LOL). well we head back and as we are pulling up to the boat ramp "the Man" is there...he checks our cooler, licenses and life jackets and says have a nice night. that was the basic story of the BAD night of flounder fishing...im sure i missed some details so MR feel free to fill in where i may have missed. well now i have a brand new, MUCH better trolling motor and 3 good trips on it with NO problems (knock on wood) so im ready to get home from work and get out there and get some flounder!!!

Oh my gosh! Ha Ha, I'm so sorry! I don't mean to laugh but I can't stop! Sorry! I do remember some of that story now, I bet his expression was priceless! I didn't think there was another man on earth that had my luck! I'm gonna bolt mine down hard! I probablly wouldn't have too much to say to the man either,besides -"could you please just move, its been one of those nights" I bet you guys are still a little gun shy on it to this day. Do you now keep looking back to the stern to see if its still hanging on? BTW, that Mercury sounds like it would move your boat at a pretty good clip!
