I've been told that the two best days to own a boat is the "day that you buy it and the day that you sell it". ;)

Things happen but maintenance is paramount.  

Some of the most memorable times I've ever had was on a boat. Here's a couple of pictures I took just a couple weeks ago.  It's hard to put into words, but if you'll notice, we are going almost due North in the Gulf Of Mexico and there is no land in sight.  We spent the day fishing about 30 or so miles offshore, out of sight of land, out where "Thar be sea monsters" and coming home after a successful trip.  It's a great feeling.






Here's us coming back through Mobile Bay.  It doesn't get much better than this.

If it wonít roll, its not a log; itís still a tree.  Sawmills cut logs, not trees.

Raining and storming all morning.  May be able to go out later.  Here's a few photos from yesterday.

Looks like a small striped bass to me.  I think up Nawth there call them white bass. The fact that the striped lines down the side are not broken indicates its not a genetic or stocked hybrid.  They are decent to eat, but have a strip of red meat that's a little strong.

This is a white bass, different from a striped bass, but related.  Some lakes up here have a hybrid of the two known as a wiper or hybrid striper.  Those get upto about 15 lbs. White bass max our at about 3 lbs.

Ice fishing once as a lad we landed a bunch of Whitefish.  Commenced to eating them over a fire right there on the shore of the lake and could not understand why they were so bony compared to how they ususally were.   Turned out they were suckers, about the size of that bass.  Aside from the bones they were pretty good actually.

You guys have those species we don't see much of.  That's a nicely rigged, and good looking boat.

I've never eaten sucker or whitefish.  I have caught them both though. 

Thanks YH.  We are very happy with this boat.  I will try to remember to take a better pic of the boat tomorrow.  Gonna try to fish the morning and then head home.  Have to get on the road before the bad weather starts.

I forgot to take a better picture of the boat.  This morning we fished from 8 til about 10:30.  It was very windy and the storms were threatening.  There is a high risk of damaging storms across the whole state of MO tonight.  I caught a nice largemouth right outside the mouth of the marina and then a few smaller smallmouth bass.  Sean caught the only walleye of the trip and his first ever.  He was very excited.

Those walleyes can be finicky to catch but man do they eat good.

One of the top three very best fish meals that I ever had was fried walleye in Dryden Ontario.

Eagle Lake?  I've caught and eaten a lot of walleyes on Eagle Lake near Dryden.
